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.

"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."

Sam is awesome! He helped me catch up on 3+ years of backed taxes, and it was as painless as something like that can be. Sam is knowledgable, friendly, professional and not an accounting robot to boot! Going to have him do our taxes this year and going forward - highly recommend Sam for your accounting needs!

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.

    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.
