Tax Accountants


Tax accountants will have good employment opportunities in the next few years. According to the Department of Labor, employment growth for accountants and auditors is expected to grow by 10 percent through 2026, which is faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for tax accounting services will be due to the ongoing changes to tax laws and regulations, the strengthening economy, and continual globalization of business. As more companies merge their businesses and acquire other companies, tax accountants will be needed to review financial records, advise clients on tax issues and liabilities, and prepare tax returns that are accurate and meet deadlines. There is strong competition for tax accounting jobs. Those who are Certified Public Accountants with a master's degree in accounting or a related major, and who have practical work experience, will have the best job prospects.
