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."

Accounting for my Real Estate Business - Allie at First Stop Solutions has been amazing. She has great communication and really listened to my needs. The accounting was taylored exactly to what I wanted. She is fast, sends me lots of reminders, as I am the one that usually forgets to send her stuff.

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.

About

I am certified in QuickBooks ProAdvisor. I do federal tax returns for businesses and individuals -- 1040, 1120, 1120-S, 1065, 941, 940, 1099 and W-2. I also do Washington State taxes, such as employment and excise, sales and use tax. Running a small business means you have a daunting number of rules and deadlines to follow for compliance. With my past experience as controller in the private industry, in addition to experience in public accounting, I understand the demands, both financial and nonfinancial, that you face. I specialize in easing you through the maze with as much or as little help as you want at affordable rates. It's so much easier (and cheaper) to get everything set up correctly from the start. To encourage beginning businesses to start off right, I will resume my $75 QuickBooks setup special (up to two hours) until tax season begins in mid-January.

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.
