Tax Accountant

A tax accountant is a professional who works with clients to produce tax return documents that follow tax laws and regulations while keeping them updated on their return information. Tax accountants must determine tax strategies for their clients that may minimize or eliminate tax payments while arranging audits with taxation authorities. They prepare tax documents for different clients, including private companies, non-profit organizations, and private individuals. Tax accountants are also required to obtain a bachelor's degree in accounting and should understand business concepts.

Finance Analyst

A finance analyst is responsible for evaluating a company's financial data and historical reports to assess investment opportunities and provide accurate financial statements in support of business strategies and company performance prediction. A financial analyst's duties also include suggesting recommendations to boost operations efficiency and grow revenues, researching the current market performance and economic trends to adjust budget goals as needed, and managing client portfolios. Finance analysts must have excellent critical and analytical thinking skills to identify the best actions for the company's profitability.

Cost Accountant

Illustrated Career Paths For an Accountant

Accountant Jobs FAQs

Can an accountant make 100k?

Yes, you can make $100,000 per year as an accountant. While possible, it is unlikely to earn over $100k as an accountant because even higher-paid positions do not typically earn more than $69,000 per year. The average annual salary for an accountant is $52,965.

Are accountants happy?

No, accountants are not happy.

Surveys on the subject report that accountants who are unhappy with their jobs are unsatisfied because they don't find their work fulfilling, their work environments are unpleasant, and the busy season (January-April, the time when everyone is filing their tax returns) is stressful.

Is accounting stressful?

Yes, accounting is stressful. Managing the finances for a large company can be stressful because the tiniest mistake can cause serious ramifications. Helping people file their tax returns can also be stressful because they all need it done within a four-month window, and a small mistake can affect both your client and your career.
