Our Tax Accounting Prices

As a boutique CPA Firm, we focus on deep long term relationships with our clients. Most of our clients started as tax clients, upgrading to our full service offerings as they saw the value in our helping them grow their business. You can check out our outsource accounting pricing plans, but we can also handle your basic tax preparation and planning services. We believe in full transparency, so we publish our tax accounting prices, instead of hiding it in the engagement letter. We feel that transparent outsource accounting prices are the most fair way to make sure that we serve everyone fairly, and you don’t feel like you’re car shopping.

Bookkeeping

$85/hr

The workhorse position of an accounting and finance department, your tax returns require a minimum of what the accounting world calls the “write up,” a simplified set of financial books to prepare tax returns. If your financial records are not up to snuff, the bookkeepers that we work with will quickly and efficiently develop a minimal set of books. We help hold our tax accounting prices in line by only employing the highest quality bookkeepers, avoiding a never ending engagement.

Integrating your bank records, credit card transactions, and possibly separating personal from business purchases can be the most time consuming part of your tax preparations. By getting these records either into your general ledger, into a write-up, or simply verified in your existing Quickbooks or Xero account, we can get your tax returns completed quickly and efficiently.

Staff Accounting

$145/hr

Staff Accountants make sure that the work that goes into your tax return is accurate and recorded properly. By moving up to a staff accountant, we control your tax accounting prices, but only having the appropriately priced resource working on your account.

If you are transitioning from a digital “shoebox of receipts” to a proper general ledger based company, our staff accountants will complete the write-up so it can be imported into your new accounting system. Our backwards looking records may be simplified to a basic chart of accounts, but it will inform our future decisions as we help you organize your new financial records.

Tax Manager

$225/hr

Experience CPAs and senior Enrolled Agents, our Tax Managers brings years of experience to reviewing your tax situation. The Tax Manager not only makes sure that your taxes are done correctly, but also to review any information that risks creating a “Red Flag” at the IRS, potentially triggering costly audits.

We are able to control your tax accounting prices by managing the work at the appropriate level. The time that the tax manager spends on your account is critical. However, since this is an expensive resource, we are careful to never have them working on lower level work and running up your bill. Honesty and Integrity are core values of our firm.
