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.

"I've had the pleasure of working with Ken Russell and his team at Access Accounting Services since 2006. Over the years they have offered invaluable support. Not only have I relied on them for accounting, payroll and bookkeeping services, but have learned that I can turn to them for strategic business advice. Additionally, their customer service is excellent. I would recommend that any small business owner utilize their services."

I would highly recommend Johansson Accounting & Tax Services to anyone that needs assistance with their taxes. I was anxious about doing my taxes this year. After talking to Mr. Johansson I felt that my taxes would be taken care of and my finances would be safe with his firm. Mr. Johansson’s firm is interested in establishing long term professional relationships with their clients, and that was just what I was looking for.

I've really enjoy working with Lily! She's been a lifesaver handling my business's bookkeeping needs, and is very thorough. She also goes above and beyond to connect me with other local businesses, networking groups, and resources. She's easy to contact, responds promptly, and answers all of my questions, regardless of how large or small. I know I'm in good hands working with her, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing some extra bookkeeping and tax preparation help!

I retained Bill's services when I received a notice from the IRS last year. It said I owed money from a property I neglected to include in my tax return due to a pending divorce. I had no idea which of the property my former spouse has acquired that generated the amount due with the IRS, but like a forensic accountant, Bill was able to figure out which property "owed" money and even better, came to the conclusion the IRS was in error. To me, that was a better result than anyone can hope for. Bill and his staff will be my "go to" accounting firm from now on. Bill is very, very adept at what he does and I feel extremely confident with his ability to handle all my financial dealings.

My first call with Rob Clark was to understand his experience and explain what I was looking for. Within a few hours of the call, he informed me that he has put together a workflow that he would like to discuss the same. I decided to meet him in person and I was impressed with the well-designed for my specific inventory accounting needs. He was well-prepared and I decided to engage him right there. He helped me clean up my books for both inventory and payroll taxes and gave me additional tips on keeping my books well-organized. Overall, a very positive experience.

I am a controller at a high-growth private startup. My accounting team used Mark as an extra set of hands during a busy time (preparing for our first audit and preparing some first-time local tax filings). He proved to be a great resource that could jump right in with very limited direction. He raised issues appropriately, had recommendations based on his years of experience, drove projects forward, and met his deadlines. I would hire him again.

Our accounting firm works on clients who are also clients of Connie McCrery. We are so very grateful for the accounting transactions Connie delivers to us. She provides reconciled Quickbooks for us to rely upon with confidence. Any questions are answered correctly and quickly because she was expecting us to ask. She covers five clients. Connie is not just a full-charge bookkeeper; she is a “take charge bookkeeper.” I believe that Connie McCrery will provide the accounting services desired. Spokane, WA

    Our taxes are little more difficult than most; especially with 2 special needs kids. Jim was wonderful in helping us get our taxes done and finding all of the deductions we needed. We will definitely be using him again this coming year!

      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.
