I needed a new accountant and posted on Thumbtack. I had several responses but Jonathon quickly stood out as professional, hard working, experienced, and committed to not only researching my questions, but gaining my confidence. Jonathon is my new accountant and I look forward to working with him.

My business partner and I came to Mac in a pinch as we are two small business owners currently working out of Japan. Mac was quick to take on the task of assisting us in our company's need for a tax accountant in a thorough, professional, and quality manner. Mac has proven himself a highly competent, highly reliable professional. He was able to work diligently with us via email and through a few other forums that he had set up for us to make the process of working with an accountant from overseas a breeze. My partner and I not only recommend Mr. Reed to other small business owners and individuals seeking professional accountant services, we've also asked Mac to continue doing business with us for the foreseeable future. Gauging from Mac's knowledge and abilities, my partner and I believe that he is more than primed to take on plenty more business for himself and think that he'll have no problem continuing doing an amazing job with anyone he does business with. Thanks Mac!

What a great experience! CMC Tax Prepation and Bookkeeping is highly professional. They are also understanding. I was not very organized or timely in getting my information to them, but they did not make me feel embarrased about it. They are very knowlegeable as I had business taxes for preparation and they also had to get several years of past taxes completed. They completed in a very timely manner. And also they competitive fees for their services. I will go back next year. And they are available year round not just during tax season. I will be back next year.

picked out of hundreds. I got calls right away, my field is Accounting, I had a CFO to send me an email for a interview and noted GREAT RESUME. Second step the interview, well I thought I had that together. It,s never been a problem. I went back to Ms. Johnson and after interviewing coaching I landed my job on the next interview. The third step now I'm doing the great job I knew I could do but I would have never had the the chance without steps one and two. Thank you Ms. Johnson I wouldn't have done it without you It was worth investing in myself.

I found Richard online and took a chance with him. I was extremely skeptical about finding someone on the internet like all of us are. I got REALLY lucky. He is that "needle in the haystack". I initially needed a few things done for the company and through working with Richard, found him to be so knowledgeable and he was able to do anything I threw at him. He now does ALL of our CPA work for our company and in addition to that now takes care of our accounting work for our UK location. You will not be disappointed in his work! He's extremely trustworthy and reliable across the board.

    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.
