In a word, I would describe Jack as EXCEPTIONAL! I decided to use an accountant this year because my taxes were unusually complex. I relocated, began renting out my primary residence, got married, started a business, purchased an electric car, etc. I realized I needed an accountant to help me, but I didn't want to pay a small fortune to a firm. When Jack sent me his quote, I expected that the actual rate would end up being much higher once I described the complexity of my needs. Not so! Not only was Jack an amazing bargain, but he did great work, was very personable, and was always quick to respond. I rarely write reviews, so the mere fact that I'm writing this speaks volumes. I would without a blink of hesitation recommend Jack King, and will no doubt be using his services again.

Sam is awesome! He helped me catch up on 3+ years of backed taxes, and it was as painless as something like that can be. Sam is knowledgable, friendly, professional and not an accounting robot to boot! Going to have him do our taxes this year and going forward - highly recommend Sam for your accounting needs!

This was our first year having Pfeiffers Accounting prepare our tax returns. Jeanine is very professional, knowledgeable, and flexible. Her preparation was fast and she even found extra deductions for us. We will definitely use Pfeiffers Accounting next year.

Denise waded through piles of paper, held my hand, and never scolded me once about having gotten SO BEHIND on my fiscal responsibilities. She pulled me out of the muck and made everything right. I couldn't be happier with her work.

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.
