Many combinations go against expectations for the type of career you can have in professional services. We’re here to meet and then go beyond those expectations, with the seasonal state and local tax senior associate role that lets you pursue passions instead of promotions.

Our seasonal state and local tax senior associates know what they are looking for in an accounting career: flexibility. These senior associates are brought in during the firm’s busy seasons, or other short-term periods driven by business need, to uphold standards, run client engagements and collaborate closely with staff across all parts of the engagement, and for multiple clients.

  • Deliver a full range of State and Local Tax services including tax return preparation and review, tax research, preparation of technical memorandums, drafting client correspondence, and counseling client in defending against state audits.

  • Conduct primary and secondary review of complicated State and Local tax returns. Review multi-disciplinary, multi-state reviews that analyze income, franchise, sales and use, payroll, valorem taxes, and others to identify optimal filing options, exemptions, credits and incentives, and corporate structures that can reduce the client's tax burden.

  • Other duties as assigned.

    QUALIFICATIONS

  • Bachelor's degree in Accounting and CPA. Masters in Taxation, LLM in Taxation, or JD a plus.

  • Three to five years of progressive State and Local Tax consulting and/or compliance experience in public accounting or a combination of corporate and public accounting experience.

  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills

  • Ability to manage and develop staff in a highly interactive team environment.

  • Strong leadership, business development, recruiting, training, coaching, and mentoring skills, coupled with excellent written, interpersonal, and presentation skills.
