I recently retired & as I always have, I did my taxes myself. I had a very large tax amount due & was quite stressed about it. Susan was able to meet with me within a business day of me contacting her. She did her best to help me lower my taxes & gave me great advice to help for next year so I won't be faced with the same scenario. She was very knowledgeable, worked quickly, & most importantly helped to eliminate my stress by setting up a payment plan for the IRS. I'm truly grateful for her help & expertise & will definitely turn to her to do my taxes in the future, it's definitely worth it to eliminate the hassle!

Outstanding experience! Initially I was hesitant to use a cpa firm out of state. I thought I would need that face to face contact. However, this quickly changed from the first initial email exchange with Kathy Fett. Her personal touch and expertise in this field made me feel like I was dealing with a cpa down the street. She was quick to answer all my questions. Speedy turnaround from the get-go. This has been my first good (not to mention great!) experience working with a cpa to do my taxes for me and to carry this burden. I will be back to Xpress CPA as long as Kathy Fett is there! - Marty

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.
