    A lot of you talk about your accounts. I was just curious to see what everybody pays for their accountant help. Thanks

    I think you're paying a bookeeper, not an account the $25/hr. My accountant has a new BMW and some sort of new high performance Chevy truck sitting in his driveway. I too pay over $100/hr.

    Wow, is it worth it.
    Is it so hard, it can't be done by you?

    a good accountant will pay for his or her self many times over and likely lower your tax bill significantly more than you dole out for their services. taxes should not be reactionary and therefore you should have a tax strategy in place.

    I use an accountant maybe once a year. I do my own taxes and whatnot. I pay him $50 an hour and normally meet with him for two hours a year just to see if he knows anything new.

    That price sounds more like BookKeepersRUs. Sure you aren't using H&R Block :p

    A good CPA will be at least $100 an hour.
