- CPAs are at the top of the pay scale, commanding $150 to $250 per hour in most cases. In major cities, however, a tax accounting firm’s top talent might command up to $500 per hour.
- Firm owners charge rates of about $200 to $250 per hour.
- Work done by supervisors and senior staff members is usually billed at $100 to $200 per hour.
