Personal Tax Return Preparer

Some may think a job is just a job, but at Perkins & Co we believe in igniting possibilities by helping our employees develop careers that fulfill their ambitions, including those who enjoy working on a seasonal basis. At Perkins & Co we bring on the best and brightest seasonal employees to help us produce high quality tax returns for our individual client base. Our team of preparers and reviewers will work through a “pool” of tax returns by collaborating together and completing the work in the most efficient and effective way possible. As a seasonal employee, you get to expand your skills by working on a variety of interesting and complex returns while enjoying the camaraderie of our team and wellness activities, firm-wide celebrations, busy season dinners, and other Perkins Perks.

We are seeking someone who is passionate about providing a high quality work product and developing positive relationships with the employees they work with. We want someone who loves digging into the details of individual tax returns and shares our opinion that the more complex the 1040, the better. If you love tax season, February - April 15, and want to find a place to thrive year after year, we have a home for you at Perkins & Co. We have several open positions.

Training is provided in early January; position begins full-time around the beginning of February. Compensation is competitive based on experience.
