A tax accountant manager is a person who supervises the preparation of tax reports on monthly, quarterly, and yearly bases. The tax account manager helps to ensure compliance with existing federal tax laws, typically supervising a team of tax accountants for the company. The tax accountant manager will also normally be responsible for reporting tax expenses for official documentation purposes, as well as tax process auditing. Finally, the tax account manager helps the company with tax planning moving forward, helping the company control this expense as much as possible.
As a manager, this employee will typically work as the supervisor of an accounting team, who collect all data related to taxable transactions within the company. They also help to put together a clear and defensible report detailing the tax expense burden the company bears for that accounting period. Typically, the account team will break down these expenses and itemize them in great detail. The tax account manager will then include these in official reports to board members and financial officers within the company.
A tax account manager must typically have an accounting degree from a university and be a certified public accountant. Most companies also seek individuals with corporate tax accounting experience for this position. They may prefer those with some prior supervisory experience. A tax account manager typically works in an office environment during regular hours of the week.
