Posted by taxguru on July 1, 2012

Just as the IRS needed to hire 16,000 new auditors to police the various provisions of ObamaCare, private companies will need to hire ever more accountants to keep track of all of the data that our imperial overlords in DC are requiring us to maintain in order to stay in their good graces. 

This summary of the employment environment from Kiplinger shows that job growth in the accounting sector will just continue to expand for at least the rest of this decade.

We still get no respect…

Posted by taxguru on January 21, 2012

I’m obviously biased, but it seems that when Hollyweird writers need an example of a soul-less person, they often use accountants, as in this clip from last night’s Fringe episode.

“Oh, she’s not dead.  Though in a manner of speaking, she was. 
A bookkeeper for an accounting firm.  Can you imagine anything more lifeless?”
