Tammy was able to handle all of my tax needs including out of State investments and returns, in State rental property and depreciation, as well as my Federal return. She did all the above work for a very reasonable fee and even dove half way to meet with me without an extra fee for traveling. I am completely happy with Tammy's Tax Preparation Service and will definitely contact her for future tax related issues.

Sean at Homestead Accounting prepared our 2016 state and federal tax returns. He did an excellent job on the returns and completed them very quickly. After they were complete, Sean walked us through the returns and answered the questions we had. Sean also identified areas that could provide tax savings in future years. It was great working with Homestead Accounting and I highly recommend them.

I originally hired Ana to help with my business' accounting, but I ran into a couple other projects that needed some numbers help as well. She was able to step in and untangle a mess that I couldn't get figured out, and I'm much more confident in the end product that I'm going to be bringing to my client.

I really can’t say enough good things about this firm. The accountant at my company had messed up my taxes and the IRS put a wage garnishment on my salary, taking out a major part of it. My employer said that there was nothing they could do and I was really stressed out because of this. I contacted a bunch of lawyers and tax services before I got a call back from these guys. They were really helpful and professional throughout the exchange on the phone. They assured me that they can get the order reversed. They negotiated with the IRS and had the wage garnishment removed. They negotiated for the outstanding taxes to be paid through installments over a period of ten months. This was more manageable for me and I am very grateful for their help.

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.
