Accountant Salaries for States with the Highest Employment Levels

The accounting profession is a popular choice for career men and women because it is lucrative as well as flexible. Accountants have the ability to earn a significant income without being tied to a specific geographic area. They can work in almost any state in the country because all businesses, regardless of industry, need someone to help them keep track of their dollars and cents. However, accountants want job security as much as the next person and in order to have that, they want to live in states where their work is in demand.

The District of Columbia is just one of those states. It has one of the highest employment levels for accountants of any state in the country. It also has a significant average income for those in the field, with accountants earning $75,780 on average. The state of Colorado also has very high employment levels for accountants. Accountants in Colorado earn an average annual income of $67,160.
