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.

Before Access Accounting, my wife had to do the bookkeeping. It was a burden and we worried about accuracy. Now having bookkeeping, invoicing and taxes taken care of is a huge load off my mind.

When Allie was referred to me I really needed some expert help with our complicated accounting system. Thank God for Allie! She was able to make heads and tails out of the mess I had been left with. Not only did she get us going on the right track, but she revamped our entire accounting system to get us in compliance with our federal funders. If you want efficiency and books that make sense, then you want the Summit Team!

Sam was fantastic to work with. He was very accommodating of our somewhat crazy schedule, and always responded promptly. Johansson Accounting & Tax services provided an excellent service at a fair price, and we look forward to continuing to work with Sam in the future. Would definitely recommend.

Adrienne has been the bookkeeper for Pack 31 Cub Scouts for nearly a year. She took a tangled mess of paperwork, organized it, and built systems that tracked our spending, individualized Scout records, and allowed us to forecast future spending. She has been cheerful and enthusiastic even when we were annoying or slow to get her the paperwork and receipts she needed. You won't regret hiring 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!

As co-owner and manager of a multi-million dollar land development company, I am writing this most positive reference for Connie McCrery, who has worked with me for twenty years as a bookkeeper. Connie has always been diligent, thorough, knowledgeable, responsible, independent, and thoughtful about her duties, and understands and includes a view of the big picture as well as of the smallest details. Connie’s work experience includes managing the payroll, including preparing all payroll and business taxes and forms; handling banking and the reconciling of accounts; paying all bills and tracking reimbursements; using QuickBooks to track all income and expenses and to prepare accounting reports; using Excel spreadsheets to prepare the history and future projection of all financial transactions; and keeping books for multiple trusts, individuals, and an LLC. I would recommend Connie McCrery without hesitation as having outstanding qualifications and experience. Sincerely,

    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.
