If you're a CPA running a small to mid-size firm, tax professional, bookkeeper in a firm or are looking to influence the profession in some way, We Want You to become a guest blogger or contributor! AccountingWEB is designed for accounting professionals in practice to teach and learn from each other. This is Your community, so be a part of it! Share your opinions, tips and tricks, daily frustrations... anything related to working in the accounting profession that will help out and even inspire other professionals in this field.

In short, what we ARE looking for are accounting professionals who want to blog and influence other accountants. What we are NOT looking for are bloggers who think they can write about accounting.

Hare are some hard and fast rules we need you to follow:


We do not have an open blogging/submission policy, ALL submissions must be seen and approved by an EDITOR. As such, if you are approved as a Blogger/Contributor, please submit ideas to: [email protected] OR [email protected]


A few tips to get you started:

  • Know Your Audience -- Keep your posts accounting-related and geared toward accountants in practice (i.e. not CFOs, internal auditors or finance departments)
  • No Research Papers -- We want to read about YOUR personal experiences in the profession, so try to keep your tone casual and conversational.
  • Nothing Promotional -- Please keep your content practical and useful, do not promote your firm, company or any particular product
  • Length of article -- We have found that articles of approximately 1,000 words in length get the most attention from search engines and remain an easy read.

Here's what we absolutely do NOT want or accept:

  • NO "Content Writers" or "SEO Experts"
  • NO Paid Posts
  • NO Do Follow links

We look forward to hearing from you and get you writing!

New to the site.
We have a small Architectural firm. Our CPA verbally stated that the growth of our company is now beyond her capabilities and needed to "fire" us. She created an IRS audit last year due to her lack of capabilities. So, we took our not yet filed 2017 taxes to a new CPA for review. Old CPA is now threatening us for non payment for the work she did do on our 2017 taxes. We told her we will not pay her invoice until our new CPA reviews her work. Now she is threatening to send us to collections. Does she have the right or is she crossing the line for a CPA? What verbiage can we use to convince her that we have to pay another CPA to review her work so that we are not set up for another audit? We will pay her something once the new CPA has done the review.
Thank you for any advice.

It's been a while since your post so the matter may be settled now, but it seems to me that the obvious solution is to first pay for the work that was done and then dispute it later if you have proper grounds. You don't use any "verbiage" to convince her of anything, you simply pay for the work you asked her to do for you.

I love this: "accounting professionals who want to blog, what we are NOT looking for are bloggers who think they can write about the accounting profession."

I bet you get no end of submissions from SEOs looking to build a quick backlink or two for their clients. I bet, also, that their comments on accountancy matters make for hilarious reading.

Here's the bottom line for older accounting career hopefuls:

I'm an active California CPA with a master's degree in business administration/accounting from a great school (San Diego State University). I have over thirty years’ experience in accounting and taxation in the IRS starting as a Revenue Agent and moving up to international tax specialist. I also taught financial accounting, managerial (cost) accounting and taxation at a local college as an adjunct instructor for nine years. In addition, I served as a panelist presenting topics on international taxation from an IRS perspective at symposiums sponsored by the University of San Diego law school.

I retired from the IRS in November, 2016 after over thirty-five years. During my retirement, I kept my CPA license active. After one year of retirement, I wanted to go back to work in the accounting and tax field.

For the last two years I've sent my resume to over 200 employers ranging from small CPA firms to accounting search agencies to local and state governmental agencies and to educational institutions and have not received even one interview. I've even applied to tax prep firms for minimum wage positions and have gotten no responses. This is in spite of the fact that we are nationally currently in a full employment economy and for the accounting profession, especially for CPAs, the unemployment rate is near zero percent.

The conclusion from my job search experience is that age trumps everything even in a full employment economy and in a profession where your expertise is needed by virtually everyone. Your age trumps your education, your credentials, your skills, your experience and your knowledge. I thought I had a lot to offer especially in a profession like accounting and taxation, where my expertise would be valuable to people in all walks of life. I feel that I'm being singled out, marginalized and looked upon as a worthless, irrelevant useless old relic.

Anyway, good job hunting folks.
