I have had numerous accountants over the years; to assist me with my payroll processing, preparing & filing taxes and advice. Hands down, Nicole Odeh from TSBAS, is the best by far. I find this company to be friendly, much lower priced in comparison to others, and extremely competent. I will be a customer of theirs for life.

I used to do my taxes using Turbo Tax and thought that having a CPA to do my taxes is not cost-effective. I thought, how much more money can they really save me. I decided to use Excellence Tax Services in 2011 to do my taxes based on a recommendation and I got more than $1,000 more on my taxes!!! I couldn't believe it!!! They asked good questions and helped me assess what things are tax-deductible based on my situation. I referred them to a friend who was so happy that she went to Excellence Tax Services. She found out that H&R Block filed her taxes incorrectly. Excellence Tax Services filed her taxes correctly that year and also amended her previous tax return for a fraction of the cost...she saved over $2,000! They are very professional, honest, intelligent, and provide excellent quality services! Ask for Priscila when you go in...she's the best!

Kristen put her all energies into helping me organize my Quickbooks in time for the accountant. They had gotten very messed up with several workers using my books. She persevered with my highly stressful day and even took time in-between her busy schedule to grant me screen time during her many appointments so I would make my deadline! I would highly recommend her. She knows what she is doing and she will do her best to help.

About

Boundless was born out of the idea that bookkeeping for small businesses has to be better. With the experience of having friends & family run their own businesses, we thought...why does bookkeeping take up so much time? We created Boundless Bookkeeping & Accounting LLC to solve this problem. We reach clients locally and not-so-locally through our virtual services, and no matter what your needs, we are absolutely eager to help you. A lot of bookkeeping and accounting companies try to be one-size-fits-all, especially virtual companies. They charge by number of transactions, and you never actually learn the name of who's keeping the books for your business. Boundless is completely different. We realize each business is different, and the number of transactions shouldn't govern the price you pay, or the level of service you receive. The small business deserves just as much attention as a large corporation (we would know, we're a small business too!) On top of a level of service that just doesn't compare to big bookkeeping companies, we are fully-trained in some of today's best bookkeeping software suites, such as QuickBooks, and will strive to not only maintain your books on software that is easy-to-use, but to even take the time to show you how to use it if you so desire! Let Boundless show you how easy tax season can really be, too! We have Enrolled Agents (the highest credential the IRS awards professional tax preparers) waiting to take the burden of tax preparation off your hands. Whether an individual or a small business, we can help.

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.
