    Hiring the services of Dean was excellent. He was quick and straight to the point attending my request and preparing my 2013 tax return. I have a complex international situation that most tax advisors I had contacted previously did not know how to deal with. Some even adviced me in the wrong way, as I learned later after doing research and educating myself on the topic. On the contrary, Dean is an International tax expert and answered to all my questions in a timely and precise fashion and presented all documentation in an extremely tidy and neat way. Also his fees are totaly reasonable. I would definitely recommend working with Dean.

    I recently moved from California which has a slightly different tax code and my accounting books became very complex because of the move between the two states. I tried to hire a bunch of accountants but they withdrew after taking a look at my books. As the tax deadline approached, I became quite desperate and started panicking because I didn’t want to be penalized for not filing my tax returns. That is when I came in touch with Legacy Tax Resolution. Their accountants are very smart and have a decent knowledge of tax legislation as they’ve worked in multiple states. Within a week, they had helped me move my accounting practices and also prepared the complete return to be filed with the IRS. They make even the most difficult problems appear easy and simple.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is an accountant?

    Accountants are financial professionals who have received an accounting degree from a four-year university or college. By trade, accountants prepare, maintain and examine the financial statements of an individual, business or institution. An accountant prepares reports for tax purposes and can also perform audits of public companies. Common tasks include creating budgets, analyzing profits and losses of a company, processing payroll, preparing financial statements for company leadership, and creating and maintaining financial database systems for a company.    

    Accountants do not automatically have a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation unless they have passed the Uniform CPA Examination and received the proper license. Regardless of whether they are CPA certified or not, accountants can assist businesses and individuals with bookkeeping and financial reporting, while CPAs are more knowledgeable in tax codes as a result of the CPA licensing examination and continuing education requirements. CPAs are also eligible to represent clients before the IRS if audit support is required, while a non-CPA accountant is not. Academic background, years in the field and professional reputation all can affect an accountant’s rates.

    How much does it cost to hire an accountant?

    Accountants’ rates vary based on their education, licenses, experience, and the work for which they are being hired. An accountant may charge an hourly rate when a company or individual needs their services on a short-term basis, such as when performing an audit or requesting assistance setting up a financial database or process. Hourly rates can range as widely as $40 per hour to $300 or more per hour, depending on your geographic location and the accountant. Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your region.

    Accountants may offer a package rate for weekly, monthly or annual services to reward ongoing customers. Many accountants offer online services where small businesses can access online accounting software and payroll assistance, and the accountant — for a monthly or other recurring fee — provides financial analysis and reporting of their numbers. For basic monthly accounting services, an accountant might charge anywhere from $75 to $500 or more, depending on what was included in a given package, the size of the client’s business, and the complexity of work requested. Nationally, full-time staff accountants earn between $40,000 and $80,000, depending on experience and other factors.
