I have come to rely on Christy. Besides being accurate and and clear in her communications, which you would hope all bookkeepers would be, she keeps an eye out for tax deadlines and payroll. I interviewed several Bookkeepers when my previous bookkeeper passed away. Christy seemed to be the best. Now after working with her for nine months I'm really pleased to have Christy on my team and highly recommend her.

My experience with Jeanine was excellent. I have a small business and needed a bookkeeper/accountant. I met with Jeanine and we reviewed my requirements. She is very professional, knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with. She was always available for questions and was very timely in getting things done. I am currently using Pfeiffers Accounting and highly recommend her!

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 had a huge problem with my books before going to seek a CPA firm who can help me. I was too trusting when people tell me they are who they are and that they can do what they say they can do. Let me tell you that from that experience, I will be cautious when people just say things without history of good deeds. Before I went to William Bratton, CPA, I had 2 former bookkeepers who were not upfront with me regarding my records. Not only did they mess up, destroyed and lost my records, when I wanted them back, they refused to give them back to me. William Bratton took charge of reconstructing my Payroll Records and getting me caught up with filing to IRS and State agencies. William was very, very helpful with imparting information to me. He was also very helpful in getting my records (or whatever was salvaged and kept by the two people I trusted, the dreaded bookkeepers) back by calling on favors from his police officer friends. NOW, THAT IS GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND A CPA’S DUTIES. I will definitely continue to use William as my accountant from now on. Do I recommend him? You betcha. I am more than pleased with the services I received. I am over the moon with it. Sincerely, Shelly M.

I am more than happy to write this letter of recommendation. Connie has helped me over the years with keeping my recordkeeping and bookkeeping accurate and organized. She is very knowledgeable, detailed, patient, and excellent. I use Quicken, which is not her favorite, but she learns all the ins and outs of the program. She knows how to set up well-organized bookkeeping system from scratch. She has always made herself available for questions, and is wonderful about communicating in a clear concise manner. I have found her to be exceedingly patient, professional, trustworthy, and honest. You couldn't have a better person working with you!

Melanie has done a fine job of helping us to date with our minor bookkeeping needs, working with our "in house" bookkeeper with questions about QuickBooks, standard bookkeeping practice, etc. We use Melanie to perform a quarterly "audit" of the work our in house bookkeeper does, as well as having Melanie file our taxes. Her work in both these areas has been more than satisfactory; beyond that she is pleasant, personable, and easy to work with. She certainly has been an asset to our small business so far, and I am glad to be able to write this positive review.

    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.

    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 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.
