This role is a corporate tax role and you will work supporting the tax team, contributing to the success of their service provision to their client base. You will interact with other areas within the Firm working collaboratively in sharing of client information and delivering of high-quality service.

You will be responsible for effectively managing and carrying out the production of corporate tax returns and computations for a portfolio of audit and advisory clients. Assist in tax advisory projects across a range of audit clients and OMB`s.
