Position: TAX ACCOUNTANT - Public Accounting (1+ yrs)

Recent grad with internship?   Have a year or so in public accounting but want to get into a better situation?  Looking for career growth leading to partner without working crazy hours in the process?  

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 a professional to join their team as a Tax Accountant. In this role, you do all the things you would expect such as work with Sr. Tax staff, small business execs, and their firms, research and analyze tax strategies, prepare returns, make sure tax payments are made accurately and on time, etc. Beyond that, you work with truly collaborative and supportive group of folks focused on client satisfaction and helping grow the organization. They are open to a strong professional who can work on site or possibly in a hybrid 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.  
  • A passion for Tax Accounting and 1 or more years experience doing tax and related work in public accounting.
  • Ideally, tax accountng experience encompassing individuals, small business, family business, LLC's, S-corps, partnerships, etc.
  • You'll be interacting with external 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. Familiarity at common software like UltraTax, Quickbooks, and Excel.
  • A degree in Accounting or equivalent experience.
  • CPA / CPA candidate preferred, but not required.  Desire to grow as a professional is required. 
  • Location in central Ohio.
