Income Tax Preparation FAQs

  • Is a CPA better than an accountant?

    An accountant only requires a bachelor’s degree in accounting, while a CPA has to get certification by completing educational and practical experience requirements, as well as passing a series of exams. Because of this, CPA’s often have more expertise and credibility in regards to accounting, making them the better choice.

  • How much do accounting services cost?

    The cost of accounting services can differ greatly based on a number of factors, including the types of services requested, whether it’s personal or business accounting, the industry, and the size of the business. Generally, based upon the services provided, hourly rates range anywhere between $90-$300+.
