Hello! My name is Tracy and I'm a current high school student. I'm conducting an interview with any professional in Tax Examiners and Collectors, and Revenue Agents field for a Foundations in Health Science Class project about careers! I have created a total of 13 questions. Comment on this post, answering all 13 questions to be a part of my assignment.?

Unfortunately, his is my second time posting this since no one answered my first post. Please help me and answer these questions for my health science assignment: What profession did you choose? Why? How many years of college did you need to go through? What jobs did you work before you landed your present professional job? How can I decide if I should earn a Ph.D. in this field? Were you in a college program? Did you have to pivot and go back to school at a later date? Did you shadow another professional in the field? Did you join any school clubs related to your current profession? Was there a particular subject you struggled with during your school years What skill sets did you learn or gain while pursuing your career? Were you faced with any obstacles that slowed you down? How did you overcome them? What is something about your profession that you want others to keep in mind before pursuing in the same path? What is the most difficult part about working in your professional job? Thank you for your time.

Want to go into advisory / management consulting. Which is a better stepping stone? Audit or Tax?

Hi. I'm an accounting fresh graduate who is currently trying to complete ACCA. I would like to go into advisory or management consulting but lately there are no responses from Big4 and other consulting firms. Therefore, I might have to start my career in either external audit or tax. Which of these two would be a good stepping stone to help me carve a career in consulting? #consulting #accountant #career #business #tax

How does the government decide the taxes for each state?

I know that in some states taxes are different; however, I am unsure as to why that is. I understand that they have different amounts of people, but why do those people have to pay substantially different amounts of money.#tax
