Kim was great to work with, and very responsive. After initially preparing my return online, I realized I was missing forms the program didn't prompt me to fill out. Lesson learned - use an accountant! After finding Kim and meeting with her, my returns were completed very fast, she answered my questions and explained tax changes. She really made the process easy and would recommend her service and will use again!

I currently work for a contractor, doing all his administration work: All A/P and A/R, taxes, payroll, client emailing, website updating, estimates and all paper work. He was doing everything manually, and I converted everything to the computer using QuickBooks. I have been using QuickBooks for about 7 years, and have completely changed the way he does business; he gets his billing done quickly, with a professional-looking invoice emailed to the client, and is paid in days. I am able to produce any type of report to see how the business is doing, to how high the expenses are in that month or quarter, whatever he would like to see. All taxes are e-filed and e-paid through QuickBooks; making life that much easier. I am also a web designer, so I created a website for the business, where people can contact the company for an estimate, which has brought in many customers, who are now recurring customers. I can bring many services to your company, plus, I pick up things very quickly, so you should have no downtime. I also have the experience with data entry while I was in purchasing working with inventory. I type well on the computer, and I enjoy that too. I really would like to branch out and take on more businesses, and learn new things and meet new people. So, if you think that we could work well together, do not hesitate to contact me; I will be ready and waiting.

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.

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.
