Accountants are the professionals who examine and prepare financial records to ensure taxes are paid on-time and properly. In addition, these professionals access financial operations to help organizations run more efficiently. Typical duties include ensuring compliance with tax laws, preparation of tax returns, accounting systems inspection, organization of financial records and giving advice on how to reduce costs, increase revenues and enhance profits. Some Accountants specialize, such as in risk management or in specific industries like health care. Public Accountants perform a wide range of tax, accounting, auditing and consulting tasks. Clients include governments, corporations and individuals.
Accountant Education Requirements

To become a Certified Public Accountant, or CPA, candidates must pass the state exam. Many Accountants choose this designation to gain clients or to increase their job prospects.
