Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Certified Public Accountants with Tax Compliance skills, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $54K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $67K. Certified Public Accountants with Tax Compliance skills who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $79K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $89K on average.
