Online Taxation Degrees

Although there are many areas of the business industry that are receding slightly or suffering from downsizing, accounting and taxation are two areas that continue to grow. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, these two areas are set to grow by 22 percent over the next decade, creating a number of new jobs for skilled and qualified applicants.

The reason for this growth is because a growing population will require more accountants, and taxation is a nonnegotiable aspect of life. In addition, more small businesses require the help and assistance of accountants and taxation specialists. If you are interested in working in this field, an online degree can help you to achieve your goals.

    Here are a few of the most popular degrees available online in accounting-taxation.

    Associate Degree in Accounting with a Concentration as a Tax Specialist

    This two-year degree program is the shortest and most basic accounting or taxation program available to interested students, and the course prepares graduates for careers in basic bookkeeping, payroll accounting, state and federal income taxes, individual and business taxation and business management.

    In order to apply for this degree program, applicants should have a high school diploma, suitable SAT or ACT results and be over the age of 18. Graduates will have no trouble finding entry level employment opportunities as tax return preparation specialists, auditing clerks, payroll managers or bookkeepers for private businesses.

    Bachelor's Degree in Accounting

    In many ways, the Bachelor's of Accounting is similar to the associate degree. However, the bachelor's degree takes four years to complete, consists of slightly harder course materials and prepares students for more advanced positions after graduation. Some of the courses you can expect to cover when earning a bachelor's degree in accounting include income, federal and business tax accounting, financial reporting, auditing and accounting information systems.

    Graduates of this program will be able to find positions as taxation auditors, financial analysts, tax planners, tax examiners and managerial accountants. In order to be eligible to pursue this degree, applicants should have a high school degree, the minimum required ACT or SAT scores and acceptable high school grade point averages.

    Master's Degree in Accounting

    A master's degree in accounting is a one to two-year program that allows students to focus on a particular area of accounting and is designed to help aspiring accountants reach the 150 credits required to sit the certified public accountant licensing examination. Those interested in pursuing a Master of Accounting might choose to focus on areas like taxation, which will cover taxation laws, conducting tax research and managing tax forecasts for large businesses. Students interested in pursuing this degree will need to already have a related bachelor's degree, have a demonstrated interested in accounting and have the required GRE scores.

    Master's Degree in Taxation

    This master's degree program is very similar to the master's degree in accounting, but this one will focus entirely on state taxation laws, federal taxation practices and the economic repercussions of various state, federal and business tax policies. Graduates may be eligible to become certified accountants, but most will go on to work as financial analysts, tax examiners and internal or external auditors.

    Doctor of Philosophy in Accounting

    This extensive advanced degree program will cover specific areas of taxation and accounting including accounting research, financial reporting and studying research models for taxation policies. This degree program can take upwards of six years to complete, but most graduates find lucrative positions as economic consultants, corporate accounting specialists or government economic advisors.

    If you are interested in using your math skills in a lucrative career, then consider earning an online degree in the field of accounting-taxation at the associate, bachelor's, master's or even doctoral level through an accredited online college.
