The U.S. tax system has always been complicated. And it's going to get more complicated soon with the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act that passed in Congress.

Some accountants and Certified Public Accountants (CPA) make taxes their entire career. This tax game might help you decide whether that's a career for you. 


With this tax game you can pretend to be a member of Congress or maybe more like someone who works for the Congressional Budget Office. In this game you decide how much of each different kind of tax people should pay. At the end of it the game calculates if you have raised enough revenue to balance the budget.


You can review the game in the images below but to actually do the game click here.

Happy Accounting!
