Position: TAX ACCOUNTANT – Public Accounting (4+ yrs)

Love public accounting and tax, but getting burned out by the hours?  Looking for career growth leading to partner without killing yourself in the process?  

 
THE OPPORTUNITY: 

Our client is a small CPA firm in central Ohio focusing on small to mid-sized businesses, not-for-profits, and high wealth individuals. 

They are looking for an accounting professional to join their team as a Tax Accountant. In this role, you do all the things you would expect such as work with small business execs and their firms, consult on tax strategies, prepare / oversee 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.  They are open to a strong professional who can work in a hybrid or possibly remote environment.

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 anything in excess 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.”
A bonus is that the firm is looking for individuals who can grow and become a leader in the firm.  
 
WHAT IT TAKES: 
  • A passion for Tax Accounting and 4+ 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 or equivalent experience.
  • CPA / CPA candidate preferred, but not required.
  • Location in central Ohio to come into the office as needed.
