However, of late, these services have been badly affected due to the shortage of accounting and tax professionals. Many accountants and tax professionals have already left their vocation due to several reasons including demanding workloads, lack of work-life balance, burnout, and concerns about career growth prospects and job security in the face of automation and AI.
