Some people say accountants are overpaid and some say they are not paid enough. Trying to settle this debate is difficult and some source of information would be helpful in this regard. This website provides some details as to the status of accountant pay for the year 2013.

Online website usually overstate what people are really making.  It also depends a lot what city you're in.  I'm a CPA only making $38k.  It has been a woeful career.

Your salary will depend a lot on many factors. The industry you are in, the company size, number of years of expirence, etc.

The range for accountants pay is very wide. Don't get upset my some salary survey.
