Frequently asked questions
Accountant in Your Pocket is an accounting service protection plan. For a monthly or annual fee, each member is allowed a set amount of services per year with a CPA which include consultations an array of topics (including tax planning and financial planning), IRS audit support (in plus and premium packages), financial document examinations, research, and more.
Services vary by the package. All packages come with a set amount of 30-minute consultations per year that can be used for tax planning, financial planning, software questions, and more. Individual/Family plans include estate planning in their benefits as well as IRS audit support. Business plus and premium plans come with IRS audit support, whereas the basic plan does not.

Accountant in Your Pocket is not an accounting firm. We are a service plan that guarantees members benefits with a CPA for a monthly/yearly fee.
The providers at Accountant in Your Pocket recognize tax planning as advising on how to lessen their tax liability throughout the year, as well as examining their financial documents needed to file their taxes. Tax planning becomes tax preparation when the CPA or other designated tax professional begins inputting data onto forms with the intention to file them on behalf of the member. When tax planning is utilized effectively, tax preparation takes minimal time.
Each plan varies by the package level and type. Please see our package’s pages to get a price.

Tax preparation is billed at $50/hour for a specific number of hours. If those hours are exceeded, the member is billed at the CPA’s standard rate without the discount.
IRS audit support is included with a specified number of hours include in the package. Hours exceeding those hours are billed at $50/hour for a scaled number of hours (the longer the member has held a plan with us, the more hours they are allotted). Hours exceeding those are billed at the CPA’s standard rate without the discount.
We have our CPAs bill at their standard rate after the allotted hours at $50/hour because as long as adequate tax planning is performed, the member should not have any surprises with exceeding the allotted hours at $50/hour. When you go to a firm to have your taxes done, you are billed for the tax planning and tax preparation at their standard rate, which ranges from $150-$400 per hour on average. The majority of this work is in your financial document examinations and planning. With our plan, the member is allowed a set amount of consultations that can be used for tax planning, thus greatly reducing the time it takes for tax preparation.
The member has the right to review their contract with us, which is available to them after signing up. If they are not satisfied for any reason, they have 10 days to send us a written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org of their intent to cancel and receive a refund. After that 10 days, a refund will not be issued.
