My client, a mid-sized CPA firm in NYC and one of the largest single office CPA firms in the region, is looking for a Tax Senior in its Research & Development Tax Credits Practice. This is a high visibility, working alongside Firm leadership & the Practice Leader
The firm continues to enjoy solid organic growth, and the R&D group has experienced amazing growth over the last 3 years. Now that the credit is permanent, they really need to ramp up staffing to keep up with the current workload, as well as the upcoming pipeline of new clients
Currently the R&D practice at the firm consists of the Practice Leader/Partner, and a group of 3 professionals solely dedicated to the group…they have more work than they can handle now that businesses will be utilizing the credit as an annual tax tool.
The internal growth potential is huge. It’s a chance to get involved in the growth of an integral part of the Tax group, work directly with Firm leaders, getting exposed to all facets of the tax work. Unlike at big firms where you might be specialized (i.e. trapped at your desk) writing up the research portion, the Practice Leader really wants people who want to work on the complete project, speak to the clients, take ownership, be the client face at IRS meetings, etc. Most importantly…he wants to groom the Practice’s future Partners.
This firm is very proud of its history of organic growth. They are a throwback to a time when Partners were Partners, not just employees. A time when you knew/saw your Managing Partner & Executive Committee and spoke with them on a daily basis…as opposed to answering to people/leadership in other states/time-zones. It is a mid-sized firm with big firm money/resources
Their culture has led to an abnormally high retention rate, which they can attribute to several factors, such as lifetime pensions, higher than average compensation, reasonable hours, upward mobility, free lunches every day for Sr. Manager level and up. In terms of work/life balance, according to area surveys/work hours comparison, they are less than most firms. In some cases, significantly less.
Main responsibilities for this role include:
Become/Stay current on R&D Tax credits tax law
Additional responsibilities include:
Eager to learn and grow quickly in the R&D tax credits space
Conducting research related to R&D tax issues
Minimum 2 years of exp with corporate taxation, C-Corps, S-Corps, Partnerships, SALT experience is a PLUS
Degree in Accounting or related field
Licensed CPA and/or JD/LLM and/or MST preferred or in progress
Big 4 experience a huge plus, as is large national firm experience. Examples: BDO, GT, McGladrey, Andersen
