Top 10 Cities for Accountants

Steve Berman | LedgerLink

5. Washington, DC


You don’t need to be a politician or lobbyist to have a home in our nation’s capital. In fact, D.C. is a great place for workers of all kinds, with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. The average salary in Washington is one of the highest of all American cities, and with an increasing focus on accounting fraud and governmental regulation, more accountants are needed all the time … especially forensic accountants.

Average Salaries for Accounting Jobs:
Accountant/Auditor: $75,830
Bookkeeper: $40,870

Population: 600,000
Unemployment rate (Nov. 09): 6.1%
High School Graduates: 84%
Bachelor’s Degree or Higher: 45%
Mean Travel Time to Work (in minutes): 29
Homeownership Rate: 44%

No. 4: The Windy City

    One cool thing about being an accountant is that a lot of times you can work for yourself. And after spending a few years in an office, I know that working from home doesn't suck.
