Ken is a thorough and concise with the work he has done from a previous tax year. I had W-2's, business, and various other forms from that year and was able to accomplish the filing within a good timeframe considering the complexity of my filing. We were in constant communication via phone, text, and email. He gave me the best strategies to reduce my tax liability and to reduce taxes that I may owe (if any) to the mean state and fed IRS. I would recommend Ken's services to anyone who needs a professional and knowledgeable person. Thank you Ken for your timely and enjoyable services.

Made us feel at ease. Beatrice was friendly and professional. We interviewed a couple other accounting services before coming to see D&B. The others made us feel uncomfortable, non-important , and truth be known like we shouldn't be in business. Beatrice was the exact opposite. We just had our initial meeting and we already know they are fantastic

I can't say enough great things about my experience working with Shelton Accounting. They were very flexible in accommodating my schedule to talk and meet about my taxes. More importantly, I received individualized attention to my particular tax situation, and valuable advice. Shelton Accounting is a real gem; I am happy to have left "the Block," and will never look back. I highly recommend Shelton Accounting, they are an A+ all the way. I will definitely use them again, and again, and again.

    I have known Ray Nations since 2004 when he was a long haul driver for Mayflower. He is a man of honor, decency, morals and hard working, straight shooting. I would trust Ray to hold my disclosures in confidence to the best of his ability. I couldn't ask for a better friend, mentor, leader. You can't go wrong working with him. He will definitely do right by you.

    I have worked with Darlene for 3 years and she is excellent. She is diligent about keeping me on track with my state registrations, taxes, invoicing, and most importantly, payroll. I highly recommend her for her hard work but also because she truly her really cares about the health of my business. It is nice to have someone like her on my team.

    About

    Since my tenure as a tutor I have developed a vast amount of knowledge on how to assess each particular tutee. This also allows for me to show my personality with the client allowing them to feel more wanting to learn and making it more comfortable for both sides of the equation. When this transpires the client is more viable to have fun while learning which will in return allow for them to comprehend and remember at a much larger scale. Tutoring and mentoring have always been one of my passions since an adolescent. It allows me to convey my personality while at the same time benefiting a person in need. Since I like to deem myself as a people's person it also gives me a chance to meet new people whether young or old.

    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.
