Brian at Balanced Bookkeeping was very helpful with my business. He was very patient, understanding and easy to work with. He pays extreme attention to detail and is not satisfied until the work is perfect. He cleaned up my business records, set me up with QuickBooks Online, showed me how to use QB, and now I am extremely thankful for all his hard work. I highly recommend Balanced Bookkeeping & Tax to anyone seeking a new accountant.

I contacted Thumb Tack for a bookkeeper, and Barbara responded very quickly, with a reasonable rate. After arranging a meeting at hour home office ,we recognized that Barbara is a quick thinker and is very knowledgeable with QBs. I appreciate her no none sense approach when it comes to book keeping. For the inexperienced she has a special way of explaining aspects of QBs that make it easier to understand. She is helping us catch up on entries and will be training us to utilize more option in QBs. The new training will allow me more time to work in the field and less time in the office. Anyone considering hiring a Professional Bookkeeper should definitely contact Barbara. I always assumed I could not afford a professional ,I now realize I should have hire a professional years ago. Barbara, my wife and I Thank You for helping her get me caught up, on entries and for the future training . My wife already has a full time office job, this will free up her up to enjoy more weekends. It will also give me more time in the field to increase my gross profit. Sincerely, Rich Weidner/ Ally Handyman Services, LLC

Hello my fellow brothers and sisters. For most of us we aren’t biologically connected, or perhaps we are in some shape or form. The big picture in which I entice you to embrace is that warm fuzzy feeling one gets when they feel part of a family. Hello I’m here and I need you to pick me up when I’m stranded, or simply can’t handle anymore overwhelming task. Let’s face it we need each other more than ever in this world. Yeah saying a dollar is definitely a great accomplishment; however, saving that extra dollar sometimes just simply isn’t worth the headache. I recently visited a family oriented tax facility “Izizarry Accounting & Tax Services”. Without a doubt business has a key component in which is very vital to its success. This key component is to feel part of a family in which you can trust without a doubt. Mr. Irizarry is very knowledgeable with the whole Uncle Sam process. I extremely emphasize for anyone who needs their taxes to be filled to please consider Mr. Lrizarry’s professional environment. Mr. Lrizarry had my taxes completed in no time, and at the same time he enlightened me on many aspects in regards to filing taxes. Before you try turbo tax, or some other nightmare"yes I said it nightmare". The thought process of did I mess up or what? Let a professional such as “Izizarry Accounting & Tax Services” put your worries at rest.

Chris is exceptionally knowledgeable, a focused listener, and dynamically capable of delivering the completed product expeditiously, and within a cost structure that is consumer friendly. You will not be disappointed. Thank you CPS!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
