I recently relocated to Seattle from Hawaii, and needed to find someone to assist with Hawaii State Taxes, and Federal. I did a random search, found Jack on Thumbtack and the rest is nothing but a great story. Jack was very responsive, organized..........and accessible. We met casually at a local Starbucks, and I shared my 2012 filing with him for reference. The on line planner that he sent was easy to fill out, and gave him an accurate point of reference. Within days my taxes were done,..........we met again to celebrate "a refund", and the rest is history. Jack is now my friend, not just my tax accountant. I highly recommend Jack to anyone reading this. The experience was nothing but positive. Steve in Bothell, Wa.

We come from a background of working for others, therefore opening/owning business was all new to us. We were aware that the previous owners of the business were in arrears in owing others money including their tax obligations. We were getting some help from someone with a bookkeeping background, but not entirely comfortable with them. Hiring Ken to handle the taxes and making sure the taxes are paid on time, as well as responding to our occasional questions has been quite a pleasant and stress free situation for us. We have only owned the business for a little under two years, but it has grown surprisingly well. Ken is upfront and honest and has made our transition quite easy. We would recommend him as a positive accent to any business or person in need of an excellent accountant.

Wow. So impressed with Stephen and glad I found him. I have always done my taxes myself (I consider myself pretty capable), but this year with the addition of the business I started, it finally got past what I could figure out. Stephen saved the day (and for a fraction for what other people were charging). I'd way rather pay a small amount for a tax expert in a small building who takes the time to work with you personally then a ton for a huge accounting firm that sees you as just another sale. I'll definitely be going back to him next year.

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.

    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.

    Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your area.

    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.

    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.
