Why Your Business Needs US Tax Services?

Maintaining a proper financial and tax administration is a vital part of any business, small or large. Being compliant with all local, state, federal, and international tax compliance regulations is part of this administration process. Any failures or shortcomings in your tax compliance can have direct negative effects on your business performance. The US corporate tax system for businesses is one of the most complex tax systems in the world. Therefore, most companies have at least one financial expert employed, who is part of a company's core team, and who deals with all US tax aspects that come into play when running a business.


There are many reasons why your business may need some extra help of a US tax specialist. Besides helping clients to minimize overall tax liability, typical US tax services for businesses include:

  • Prepare federal and state corporate income tax returns. At federal and state levels, different tax returns are required depending on the type of business you operate, in what state you operate it, and via what type of legal entity.
  • Assist in collecting, reporting, and paying sales tax, which differs, per state and per type of business you operate.
  • Assist with property tax on business property.
  • Assist with excise taxes on use, consumption, or in relation to certain activities.
  • Deal with potential self-employment taxes that may be due.
  • Make sure all employment taxes are collected, reported, and paid in relation to your employees.
  • Some states levy gross receipts taxes on businesses.
  • Franchise taxes may be due depending on the state and the type of business you run.
  • Provide international tax services in case your business also operates in foreign countries or deals with foreign companies, including transfer pricing services.
  • Provide tax planning and tax structuring services for your business.
  • Assist in tax audits from various tax authorities and provide representative services towards tax authorities.

How Much Should You Pay for US Tax Services?

How much you should pay for US tax services depends amongst others on the reason why you need these types of services. Also, determining the average fees charged for US tax services is very hard to assess as it depends on so many factors and circumstances. Usually, tax services are charged by the hour, but fixed fees arrangements are becoming standard practice as well. Factors that affect the hourly rate charged, or the fixed fee arrangement, include the region where the service provider is located, the experience level, the type of clients or markets served and last but not least what kind of services provided which can be a more standardized routine kind of work or highly specialized work.

For example, low-value tax compliance work may be outsourced to a service provider somewhere in Asia for less than USD 10 per hour while the typical fees involved for providing tax advice on a major acquisition in the US can easily exceed USD 800 per hour.

Via our marketplace, you can search for the kind of tax services needed and fine-tune on key factors that affect pricing, like region, specialization, hourly rate, experience level and types of clients served. When you have found your ideal candidate for the job to be done, you can directly get in touch via email or phone and start working, without any charges or interference from our platform. Find out how it works.

As you can see on PayScale, the average salary of an experienced tax consultant based in the US amounts USD 86,000.


To get a general feeling about typical fees involved in the tax services industry you can also check out Robert Walters Annual Salary Survey. This survey gives very detailed insights about permanent, interim and contract placements across most part of the professional services industry, including the tax industry in the US, and differentiates on aspects like region, experience level, big firms or smaller ones and much more.

Not Sure Whether to Hire a Freelancer, Advisor or a Firm?

This is not a simple question to answer and depends on a lot of factors. First of all, it depends on your needs and the type of work to be done. Your available budget may play a role but should not be decisive because freelancers have a reputation to be relatively cheap while firms tend to be more expensive, but the same can apply vice versa. As for the quality of work, this fully depends on the freelancers and consultants/firms you hire. A freelancer may provide better quality work in half the time than that a firm could do. But, again the same could be vice versa. Furthermore, each of these service providers come with their own pro's and con's.

A freelance tax advisor in the US performs its work independently, selling work or services by the hour, day or job. Both parties involved have no intention to establish a long-term structural working relationship with each other. Often freelancer's worked as a consultant for US tax firms in their field of expertise, and at some point, in their career, they decided to do the same as they did but then via the freelancing route.

A US tax advisor is a person who is paid to provide professional or expert advice in a particular field or specialty, who is employed by a firm whose business is to provide these tax services via its consultants.

Professional services firms exist in many different industries. They include accounting firms, tax firms, law firms, marketing firms, consulting firms, and web design firms among others. They can be any firm that offers customized, knowledge-based services to clients. When clients hire US tax firms, they generally do so because of that company's credibility and reputation.

It is common knowledge that a business is only as good as its people. So with that in mind, a good starting point is to try to find the best person for the job first, and this can be a freelancer, a particular employed consultant, or a firm that has specialized in the field you are looking for.

Finally, the good news is that you can search for all these types of tax experts on our platform (freelancers, consultants, and firms) and compare them on the criteria that are relevant for you. Find out how it works or what other knowledge assets our platform has to offer like Knowledge Sharing, Knowledge Sources, and our Latest Sector News based on Curated Content to stay up to date with the latest news and developments.

Tax Services Industry in the US

Professional Service Firms are organizations that exist primarily of professionals who provide advice to business. They include all sorts of businesses, like tax services firms, accounting firms, law firms, management consulting firms, web development firms, and much more, most of which are listed on our platform.

Compared to most organizations, professional service firms, including US tax services firms, lack hierarchy, are decentralized and have diffuse authority structures. They are knowledge-intensive, and their primary currency is intellectual capital and expertise.

A services-dominated economy is characteristic of developed countries, while in less developed countries primary activities such as manufacturing, mining, and agriculture provide for most employment. According to Britannica, the services industry account for more than three-fifths of the global GDP and employs more than one-third of the global labor force. Therefore, Professional Service Firms now rival their Fortune 500 counterparts in nearly all measures of size and some of these firms, in all sectors, including the tax advisory industry, have become truly global players.

The professional services sector in the US is massive and is the largest in the world. The world's leading professional services companies are located in the US serving their large and dynamic corporate sector. The sector in the US exists of more than 888,000 firms, employing about 9 million Americans and generates more than USD 1,6 trillion revenues according to a report from the International Trade Organization about the Professional Services Industry in the US. The Tax Services Industry in the US is an important and profitable industry that is part of the Professional Services Industry in the US.

As can be seen from Statista, in the US, the tax services industry is dominated by the accounting firms, and in more particular, the Big Four.


Professionals that provide US tax services to businesses typically work in the following sectors:

  • Accounting Firms - The accounting sector in the US, generates more than USD 156 billion in revenues, exists of nearly 132,000 firms and employs more than 1.4 million accounting professionals. A significant portion of tax advisors in the US work for large or smaller accounting firms. In general, tax services are one of the primary service products of accounting companies. The tax services provided by these firms range from tax advisory services, tax compliance services to highly specialized tax services like tax valuation services or tax incentive services.
  • Law Firms - The legal services sector in the US, generates more than USD 278 billion in revenues, exists of nearly 187,000 firms and employs around 1.2 million legal professionals. A very substantial portion of tax advisors works for law firms where tax advisory can also be one of the firm's core activities. The tax services provided by tax lawyers is to a large extent comparable to the tax services provided by accounting firms, but law firms tend to provide less tax compliance related services and these firms and their tax lawyers focus more on the legal technicalities from a tax law perspective.
  • 100% Tax Advisory Firms - Some firms have fully specialized in providing tax advisory services to their clients. A large portion of these type of firms provides a broad range of tax advisory services comparable to the tax services provided by the accounting and law firms. On the other hand, some firms have fully specialized in one type of tax services like transfer pricing services, tax compliance services, indirect tax services or real estate taxation services.
  • Freelance Tax Advisor - Some tax experts perform their jobs as a freelance tax specialist. These freelancers are typically hired as an in-house tax specialist by companies for a period to provide all sorts of tax services. These freelance tax advisors may partly take over the work that is usually done by the tax advisors of the accounting or law firms. However, it is also widespread that these freelance tax experts operate as the link between the business that hired them and the tax advisory firm enabling the tax advisory firm to focus more on highly specialized tax advisory services at a more senior level.
  • In-house Tax Advisor - Tax experts also work for private or public companies performing most or part of the work that was traditionally done by external tax advisors. A company may have only one tax director, or it may have a large tax staff made up of the tax director, a tax manager and lesser experienced tax specialists. Generally, the larger the company, the bigger its tax team.

As a result of globalization, business developments, continuous changes in tax regulations and many other factors, the tax industry is in a constant state of flux. Tax advisory firms now compete with non-tax advisory service providers and some tax services are offshored to foreign countries.

The way the professional services industry works, including the tax industry, has changed dramatically during the past few decades. Technology developments enabled working with massive amounts of data, work remotely, and deal with clients and colleagues at any place at any time. These technology changes are expected to continue at a fast pace in the future, and some experts predict that the traditional professional services industry will likely be radically different in ten years. We have further outlined the main causes and the main sectors impacted by ongoing disruption in our analysis: The Future of the Professional Services Industry.

Independents in the Tax Services Industry

There is no strict definition of what an Independent is in the professional services industry, including the tax services industry. In general, Independents are independent firms that are owner operated, they tend to work in their own country only and the bigger the standalone business is, the more different types of services provided. Boutique firm or agency is also a commonly used name for these type of entrepreneurial businesses. They tend to provide highly specialized niche services, but they may very well also directly compete with the major international firms in their industry. Strictly speaking, freelancers also qualify as Independents.

It happens very often that experienced senior professionals break away from the major players that hired them to set up their own independent firm and start a more entrepreneurial journey. Besides autonomy and more control, the ability to better define personal purpose is a typical driver to work for Independents or to start one yourself.

Due to their size, market power, and marketing budgets, larger international firms are usually easily found in the market. Small independent type of businesses do not have this luxury, and as such, they need to be more creative to find new work on a continuous basis. Using platforms like Consultants 500 is a perfect way to create extra opportunities because our primary focus and purpose are to help clients find independents in the professional services industry, including independents in the tax services industry.
