Recently I have started a spring tax internship at a mid tier firm. I chose tax because I enjoyed my tax class at school and figured that tax would be a little more intellectually challenging/interesting to me than audit. In the first few weeks it has seemed like all tax is is just data entry. If that's the case, not only does that make tax sort of boring, but it raises the concern that software will eventually make tax CPA's obsolete. Is there more to tax accounting than just data entry? Is it a good career to get into still? What does the future look like for tax CPA's?
