Stephanie is absolutely professional and efficient. She's very knowledgeable about accounting and tax codes and quick to answer my questions via email. We first spoke on the phone to gather details about my finances. I then provided further information over email regarding previous tax returns. We finally met at a coffee shop in downtown Delaware a couple weeks later to exchange payment for my completed tax returns (note: she was even able to take payment via card which was handy). Stephanie has exceeded my expectations and will now be my personal accountant. I highly recommend her services.

Mr. Coco is an extremely efficient and professional accountant. He is a wealth of information and a kind-hearted person. He greeted me by name, even though we had never met. He took care of every detail. I left feeling extremely confident about last year's tax preparation and next year's tax situation. Mr. Coco is a rare jewel and I am so glad our paths have crossed.

We are a small family construction/ excavating business. Have been with Osbornes for many years. Our account manager is very prompt, efficient, and straight to the point in all areas. The owner of the business is trying to retire, but is always very kind to continue to see us when we need a meeting with him. He is very approachable and well informed. He continues to personally do our taxes each year, at our request. Be prepared to have your monthly rate increased each year by around 8%. It just appears on monthly statement with no notification. If you are audited for any reason, they take complete control and attend the hearing handling everything with ease and efficiency. Great company! Check them out ! Check out their monthly rates and the services they offer (which are wide and varied). Owners son is a lawyer and works at the business and handles all legal matters. It's nice to have 1 stop shopping. Would recommend giving them a try. They are located across from Menards with plenty of off street parking.

    Sheila really knows here stuff when it comes to QuickBooks and Accounting. I have seen her take on monster projects that had a whole accounting department baffled and she straightened things out in no time. Not only does she understand accounting, but she understands how to use it as a tool to help improve business. I definitely would recommend her if you want to get your books straightened out. Plus how many other Accountants have a best selling book on Accounting on Amazon? Totally went above and beyond for us.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Who can file my taxes?

    Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

    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.

    How much does it cost to get taxes done?

    Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

    • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
    • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
    • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
    • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

    Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
