What are typical accountant salaries? Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

A person graduating with an accounting or finance degree can now start out at $40-45K. If they got their 5 year degree and are now a CPA candidate, they can get $45-50K. CPAs can name their price and get it. Top earners can easily make $80-90K with only 5 years experience.
