About the Company:
ASE Group is a boutique CPA firm in Northern NJ, and we provide full-service accounting & tax solutions to small business owners in the NJ/NY/CT/PA area. We help business owners create strong and sustainable businesses by making the dollars make sense. Our firm is growing and we are currently seeking a Senior Tax Expert. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated self-starter to join a young dynamic team with great growth potential.
Candidates will be exposed to clients in various industries. Our clients typically live and/or work in NJ/NY/CT/PA, have a mix of self-employment income, capital gains/losses and/or rental property activity, and seek year-round advisory support. The candidate must have a “roll up your sleeves” attitude, be detail- oriented, and be able to effectively prioritize to manage multiple projects simultaneously.
In this role, you'll have the opportunity to assist clients through preparation of more complex federal and state individual (1040), Partnership (1065) and S Corp (1120S) returns, as well as through the review of tax review returns completed by junior tax accountant.
As part of our year-round commitment to clients, you'll also calculate quarterly tax estimates for clients, and communicate them via phone and/or email. For a select few clients, you'll also remit estimated tax payments on behalf of the client. As needed, you'll conduct tax research on a variety of tax topics and respond to Federal, state, and local tax notices.
As new clients join the ASE Group family, you may participate in new client onboarding, and will play a very active role in tax planning, tax strategy and tax advisory. Advisory includes things like formal quarterly calls with clients to review performance and life changes, communicating tax savings and strategies with clients, and assisting with entity selection consultations. On the tax resolution front, you'll handle tax resolution matters, ranging from installment agreements, to Offers in Compromise.
You May Be the Right Fit If:
You take pride in being a trusted advisor to clients, enjoy being a key player on the team, research matters independently to suggest solutions and have extreme attention to detail. You are organized, have experience preparing and reviewing complex tax returns, have managed staff members in the past, and are used to juggling multiple priorities and projects.
If you’ve been out of the workforce and/or have gaps in your resume, you’re still a good fit. Parent and need a flexible environment? Also a good fit.
EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, AND LICENSING REQUIREMENTS:
Bachelor’s or master’s degree in accounting, tax or finance
Active EA/CPA designation required
Minimum 5 years’ experience in accounting/tax/finance
