    You are quite welcome Sindhuja - it must be due to the identity thefts that they started using the PIN number.

    Anusha - hope you got your questions answered regarding taking the tax course. Since I had an accounting background when I came from India, it was easy for me to continue in the accounting line.

    Let me know if you need any help in this regard.

    Anusha - it is good that you are thinking ahead like this - if you are thinking of pursuing a career in the accounting field, it is a good idea to get a CPA down the road since it will open up many doors for you not just in tax, but also in auditing and other finance fields. There are a few steps that you will need to take to qualify for the exam - so, if you are ever thinking about it, let me know and I will be glad to help.

    Anusha - I dont have much experience with the banking sector. Not sure if I can help you there - maybe someone else in this forum will respond to you.

    Hello eveyone,

    Just went through the post and found it very informative.I have an accounting background so wanted some info about the CPA course as in the duration, fees of the course, institute, the scope in the US market and other important details. Also how lucrative is the H&R course. I heard it is very time consuming as in a lot of steps are involved and the returns are not that great.

    Please help, waiting for ur reply eagerly.

    Thanks & regards

    Mayura.

    Hi Sugandha - I have not taken the HR Block course, so cannot speak for that. I hear it is pretty good for those looking to get decent experience in tax preparation. As for taking the CPA exam, contact the local board of accountancy and see how they would evaluate your education from India. You can then see what you are missing and take classes in your local university to qualify to sit for the exam.
