Where can you find legitimate work from home accounting jobs?
Tax Day (April 15) has come and gone and for most of us, that is a relief.
But maybe not so much for those accountants and bookkeepers who earn a secondary income from the mad scramble that many Americans make to get their taxes done on time!
However, the good news for those of you who are looking to either work from home full time or make a secondary income on a part time basis as an accountant or bookkeeper is that there are many legitimate work from home accounting jobs available, you just have to know where to find them!
And in fact, right here on this very page is a great place to start. just keep reading and below you will see a list of companies that regularly hire experience bookkeepers/accountants who wish to work from home.
I have a close friend of mine who works from home as an accountant in California and loves it because she is able to spend more time with her family.
Working from home is not for everyone of course, but I believe it is the wave of the future for many and especially so as technology makes telecommuting easier and easier.
Many companies small and large alike, are beginning to see the wisdom (aka the cost savings) of hiring telecommuting employees.
Work from home accounting jobs can be very rewarding and family friendly, however be aware that these telecommuting accounting jobs will require someone who can be very meticulous in keeping accurate and detailed records.
Although companies may have different requirements, you can generally be sure that most work from home accounting jobs will require you as the accountant to have experience in the following:
Office/Word Processing Software
Microsoft Excel (Spreadsheet) Software
It is also a good idea to apply to these types of work from home accounting jobs ONLY if you have plenty of experience in this field. If you’re just getting out of college, then perhaps working
for a “brick and mortar” business and building up your resume and experience is the smartest thing you can do for your career.
When you have built up your experience, reputation and your clientele then perhaps you can either ask the company that you work for to consider allowing you to work from home or perhaps you can take a look at some of the companies listed below, apply, and wow them with your depth of knowledge and experience!
In terms of what most of these companies are looking for, here is a list of requirements/experience that you should have when applying for any of the companies listed below:

Experience with payroll
