Position: TAX ACCOUNTANT – Public Accounting

Love public accounting and tax, but getting burned out by the hours? What if you could keep doing tax work with clients, AND maintain life balance?

THE OPPORTUNITY:

Our client is a small CPA firm in central Ohio focusing on small to mid-sized businesses, not-for-profits, and individual business owners.

They are looking for an individual to join their team as a Tax Accountant. In this role, you do all the Tax Accountant stuff such as work with small business execs and their firms, consult on tax strategies, prepare returns, make sure tax payments are made accurately and on time, etc. Beyond that, you work with clients to help them run the organizations smoothly with a minimum of hassle from a tax reporting and compliance perspective.

What’s different from other Tax Accounting jobs? We interviewed the current staff:

“It’s a real family-oriented company. If I need to take my kid to the doctor, I can do it and adjust my hours without being made to feel guilty about it.”
“Busy season is still busy season, but I have so much more control over my schedule and work hours.”
“I like that we have a shorter work week at 37.5 hours and get overtime paid out or banked as time off.”
“There’s no politics here. Everyone is open and honest, no pretenses, and no games.”

“The Managing Partner sits just down the hall, and I see him all the time. His door’s always open and I can just walk in and talk about a situation or ask a question.”

“I came from a large firm where it was all about your boss making partner. Here, there are no ego’s – we all work as a team to help each other.”

“We do all sorts of team and community things, like charity golf outings and helping our not for profit clients with their events and initiatives.”

WHAT IT TAKES:
  • A passion for Tax Accounting and 5+ years experience doing tax and related work in public accounting.
  • Experience with Tax Accounting for individuals, small business, family business, LLC’s, S-corps, partnerships, etc.
  • You’ll be in a client facing role with a set of clients, so strong interpersonal and relationship skills are key to success.
  • The ability to dig into records and figure out ways to help the client. Adept at common software like UltraTax, Quickbooks, and Excel.
  • A degree in Accounting.
  • CPA preferred, but not required.
