POSITION CRITERIA NEEDED
Do you love taxes…like in your blood? We do too! : -)
We’re looking for a candidate who is strong in business returns (1065, 1120, 1120S).
We started in 2011, grow double-digits annually and currently have 20 high-performing team members serving our valued clients (80% female – including our tax and accounting managers).
And our tax team does zero QBO reconciliations…that is what we have an accounting team for. 🙂
We recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary in New Orleans flying every team member and their guest for a weekend of fun – paid for by Insogna CPA – because we care about our valued team members here.
In your Senior Tax role, you will review returns from other team members, be a liaison internally between accounting and tax teams, help with refining tax procedures so everyone is efficient, teaching junior preparers, assisting with tax research, and preparing some returns as needed. You have 5+ years of extensive tax knowledge (using Lacerte is preferred) with deep expertise in preparing 1120S’s, 1065’s, and some 1120C & 990’s, in a variety of industries, to help meet team objectives.

HOW INSOGNA CPA IS DIFFERENT
The pandemic did not affect the way we work here. In fact we still grew double-digits annually since 2011 because we have a great team who work with a great technology-stack that allows all of us to work flexibly from anywhere (CST).
Have you ever been frustrated by how your time is being managed in prior positions – or maybe the one you’re in now? We just never liked the ‘old way’ of managing someone’s time…We believe in a more trusting ‘open architecture’ that allows more freedom and a less stressful environment. You want to run errands in the afternoon…we don’t care, as long as deadlines are met and clients are highly satisfied.
Do you have tax customers you just do not like working with every year – but you are forced to work with them? Not to worry here…Insogna CPA has a ‘no a**hole’ policy and we’re happy to let clients go if they are or become one. We only work with people who we want to pickup the phone with and talk too when they call us. : -)
And we are not some ‘old-style’ firm where only partners talk to customers. All tax prepares work directly with taxpayers with the returns they are working with. We will get you immediately involved in understanding our technology, tax processes and hands-on experience with customer interaction.
Insogna CPA is a growing firm of 20+ people currently. So, if you’re looking to climb a corporate ladder of titles we are probably not the best fit. What we do offer is a caring and flexible work environment, career opportunities to grow with us as we continue expanding services and org-chart, ongoing (paid) training, and a great teamwork environment dedicated to helping one-another achieve goals.
Since we started in 2011, our Tax Department continues to grow in number and in volume of work, and we need an experienced tax expert to help us continue delivering excellent customer experiences. Insogna CPA is always growing, and we are proud to currently have a 80% female workforce (including our tax manager) helping valued customers with their taxes.
And with you helping prepare and review returns, we don’t just enter numbers on a return and send them out. We are successful because our in-depth tax knowledge of the tax code is a critical part to how we help people save money. As a fellow tax expert on this team, you will be analyzing the tax effect of complex decisions, reducing customer’s overall tax rates and maximize their deductions.
Overall, we’re looking for the best senior tax specialist who is friendly, caring, fits our culture, is very tech-savvy, loves helping others, and most importantly – deeply ethical.
As a senior tax team member, you have a strong ability to prioritize tasks and work on multiple assignments in a fast-paced tax environment. You are very self-motivated, well-rounded, out-of-the-box thinker, who enjoys contributing as a high-performing team member and you love leading a team to achieve professional and technical excellence.
Additionally you are on top of the latest tax code and researching tax code when needed to help communicate with your team and customer’s tax issues. You have strong verbal and written English communication skills. And you enjoy working independently (especially with being remote), and like being a team-player helping where needed. As you succeed in your role, you look forward to being met with increased challenges, responsibility, and promotion opportunities.
Insogna CPA’s success is because of the gifted professionals who commit their careers to our firm. Our commitment to you includes:
- Caring and Respect
- Remote/Flexible Work Arrangements
- Our tech-based solutions to work anywhere, on CST time zone
- Business casual dress – always (via Zoom and in-office)
- Competitive compensation
- 401(k) Plan with safe harbor matching
