As a CPA will I get to count money? While it is very possible that you will get to count money it is unlikely unless the business you are auditing has substantial inventory of currency. As you may know, in order to verify assets like inventory, a CPA will go out to the site and sample counts as part of an inventory. Assets like cash are usually held in bank or investment accounts and are verified by statement or confirm.
Will I be giving advice to those who have trouble with spending money? As a CPA you will have the opportunity to give all kinds of advice. Helping people with their personal finances is a rewarding process. Personal Financial Planning is an area of practice within the CPA universe and if this is an area of interest to you, then you can specialize in PFP.
Will I be holding everyone's tax money? You should not be holding anyone’s tax money.
