Tax Senior

Some may think a job is just a job, but at Perkins & Co we believe in igniting possibilities by helping our employees develop a career that fulfills their ambitions. We hire great people and give them a great place to work. Our secret to keeping them around is a positive culture, strong community involvement and a dedication to continually increasing our competencies.

The Tax Senior is an integral role for the firm which allows one to develop critical skills such as reviewing work of other tax staff and providing constructive criticism/work notes in addition to preparing returns. This person will also be collaborating with Tax Managers and Shareholders to facilitate projects, obtain more exposure to complex tax issues and the opportunity to learn how to resolve them. This is a developmental role that allows the Tax Senior to expand and build the skills and knowledge that are necessary to become a Tax Manager.

Additionally, we are looking for someone who is not only focused on creating a strong deliverable for our external clients, but who is passionate about developing the people they work with and values an environment where people strive to consistently grow.

Note: Relocation assistance is available for this position. We are also open to exploring fully remote options so that relocating is not necessary.
