Adis was extremely professional and very knowledgable about resume writing. She assessed my current skillset and provided her professional opinion on what I should exemplify and highlight on my resume. She then took my professional experience/educational background to create a clear, and organized format of a resume that I am able to use in order to transition careers seamlessly. I will defintely be referring her in the future and contacting her for future professional needs. --Alia

Michelle was wonderful helping my husband and I file our personal taxes and taxes for our LLC. Her expertise was a blessing to us, as we had no idea what we were doing before she came to help. She was also super flexible with us as it took several meetings for us to get all our paperwork together. She met us around town when we had something to give her and kept us updated via email on the status of our returns. She had personal advice as to how to keep better accounting records. She had an answer to every single question we had. I cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Back Office Administrators. I definitely recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for personal or business tax filing services.

As a new business owner, I had very little idea about bookkeeping, I even made a mess of my books in the beginning. Rochelle took the time to understand my business and advised how to keep my books clean. She fixed my early mistakes and delivered timely & accurate financial reports. Fast email/phone responses, she makes this entire process simple so I can concentrate on doing what I do best.

Services: 1) Tax Preparation, 2) advice on a real estate issue. My experience with Suncrest Financial Services was excellent. I was contacted promptly by a accountant/consultant who was courteous and professional. My complicated tax preparation was performed in a very timely manner with great attention to detail. The paperwork was filed on time and the accountant gave me solid advice for preparing for filing 2016 taxes. The accountant researched my real estate question and her advice will save me money in the future. I was very impressed with the accountant and the customer service of the company. I plan to continue to use Suncrest Financial Services for my future accounting needs.

very responsive to all of my questions and if he does not know the answer to something, he researches it and gets back to us. He really has saved us a lot of time that we just don't have to do the organization of our quickbooks and accounting.

Do to a myriad of circumstances my wife and I fell behind and were delinquent in filing several years of tax returns. ELM was so understanding and helpful, in a short period of time they had us back in good standing. Very professional and exceptional service I don't know how we would have recovered without their expertise. Needless to say my wife and I are extremely pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend their service.

Mr. Brian Wise did three things which makes him the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. 1. Mr. Wise took my 2013 Tax Return (which I had already prepared), applied IRS Rules of which I had no knowledge, and increased my return by 110%. 2. Mr. Wise resubmitted my 2009 and 2008 Tax Returns and recovered for me the Penalty and Return which was a very SIGNIFICANT RETURN. 3. Lastly, Mr. Wise EDUCATED US. His philosophy is: “THE IRS WORKS FOR US”. This “respect” but “fearless” philosophy taught me that even though we Taxpayers make mistakes, we should be allowed to make amends for those mistakes without the fear of a huge incursion upon our assets or our freedom. Mr. Wise is the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. He has had a GIGANTIC impact on our financial freedom and I look forward to a long partnership with his firm. ~ Jerry C. Featherstone

Working with Jim has been great! As a small business owner with no previous bookkeeping or accounting experience, I had been struggling to handle Quickbooks, payroll, 1099s, tax deadlines, etc. Jim has been wonderful about sitting down with us to really understand the specific needs of our company and to set up our bookkeeping in ways that work for us. He is a pleasure to work with - always incredibly patient and helpful and great at keeping our bookeeper, accountant and payroll communicating smoothly with each other. I wish I had found him as soon as I started this business! I highly recommend him. Karleen Boyle Sudol, Ph.D. Owner and Executive Director The Science Place, Inc.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
