Company Information
Navigator Recruiting client is 43-year-old small CPA firm in Colorado offering audit and tax services to non-public companies in and around the Denver metro area. The company provides a team-driven working environment and an office environment where each individual is acknowledged for their contribution to the continued success of the company. Clientele make-up is 60% oil & gas and real estate and 40% other. The tax accountant will be expected to prepare individual tax returns and simpler business returns. In time and with training, the tax accountant will be given more challenging tax returns. (Our client does not have any not-for-profit or governmental clients.) The firm is seeking someone in a full-time tax accounting role to prepare tax returns.

  • Discretionary bonuses in April (after busy season) and December
  • Laid back relaxed small firm environment with easy-going management and people who work well together (no politics)
  • A lot of client contact
  • Preparation of federal and state (not many multi-state) individual, business and trust income tax returns
  • Preparation of book/tax adjustments for tax returns and financial statements
  • Preparation of year-end and quarterly tax estimates

  • Starting out, the tax accountant will prepare mostly individual tax returns and gradually will begin to prepare more business returns (mostly S Corp and Partnership returns) and there are several clients in oil & gas and real estate. Some of the returns are more challenging and some of the returns are very basic, so there appears to be a nice mix.
