Any decent MBA generally requires some good work experience whereas most MS programs do not. Most people go for the MS degree if they don't have enough credits to sit for CPA exam or to get another shot at big 4 recruiting. MBA with work experience gives you a chance for higher level positions.

Most MS programs are only one year (18 months if it has a built-in internship). A full-time MBA is usually a 2 year program. The curriculum will also be much different as an MS in accounting/tax is a very specialized degree. ~ 90% of your credits will be in accounting. An MBA in tax will still have the taxation courses but will also include courses on management, strategy, etc...
