"Accounting is one of those professional career paths that is as close as they come to a sure thing,"according to the editors at Value Colleges; "We all know taxes are complicated, but only accountants and other experts in taxation realize just how complicated," the editors explain; "The current federal tax code is over 4 million words, and has been updated or amended almost 5 thousand times in the last decade and a half." According to Value Colleges, "That’s why good accountants, especially those who have a speciality in taxation, are crucial to the modern economy. With globalization, gigantic corporations, and a tax code that is constantly changing and growing in complexity, people who are qualified to keep it all together are worth their weight in gold."
