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

I highly recommend Nathaniel Jacobson CPAs. Their quality and cost efficient accounting services really highlighted the difference between clerical bookkeepers and professional CPAs. Their adept implementation of cloud-based Xero financials and prompt and friendly support really impressed us and their effortless handling of months of backlogged paperwork and tax analysis made a real difference at a critical juncture in our business. It was a pleasant surprise that a full service multi-office accounting firm could offer flat rate value pricing for key services without any degradation in expertise or personalized attention. An expedient bookkeeping hire has instead become a competitive advantage!

I contacted Ms. Proffitt because of good reviews on Thumbtack. I needed a new tax preparer when my previous one disappeared. Amber's price was reasonable. She did the work quickly with the information I provided, with only a few phone calls to check and revise things in the returns--fewer than I would have expected since I'm a new client. She is both highly professional and friendly. In the final return she included a number of useful worksheets. I definitely recommend her.

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.

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.

Cindy Ingram, EA with Pine Grove Accounting Services has been managing all of our bookkeeping for over 17 years. Cindy is amazing. She responds quickly to our requests for specialized reports, invoices and other accounting needs. I trust her so much that I even have them managing my personal accounting as well. I highly recommend Pine Grove Accounting Services and can not even begin to calculate the hours and money they have saved us. I especially like the personalized attention that I receive from Cindy which I have not found with other accounting or bookkeeping agencies.

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.
