Experienced Tax Preparer (Alexandria)

compensation: Compensation will be between $40 - $60 per hour, depending on experience.
employment type: part-time

Murphy & Associates is a local boutique CPA firm in the City of Alexandria that has been in business for more than 37 years. We are seeking an experienced tax professional to assist in the preparation and review of tax returns. While there will be an emphasis on the preparation of individual income tax returns, job responsibilities will also include the preparation of small business and fiduciary income tax returns. Our clients are a mix of high-income individuals and retirees as well as small businesses and trusts. Our clients have been with us for many years, and we pride ourselves on our customer service.

The successful candidate will be an energetic self-starter with excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. The job requires an individual who is comfortable and skilled at communicating directly with clients on the telephone and via e-mail. Proficiency in the Microsoft Office suite of software is required. Knowledge of current tax laws and the ability to conduct research via the internet and reference manuals is a must.

Experience using Lacerte, or a similar type of tax preparation software is preferred. However, we are willing to train the successful candidate to help them gain proficiency using our software. There will be ample opportunity to increase one’s knowledge of the tax code and tax-preparation skills via collaboration with colleagues and firm partners.

This is a part-time opportunity, but the potential exists to grow this position into a more involved role over time. Our firm is extremely flexible, and we ask only that you work at least 40 hours per week during the peak busy seasons from February 15th – April 15th, and again from September 1st – October 15th. We have a smaller, less time-sensitive workflow during the Summer months that would provide an excellent opportunity to work additional hours. Compensation will be between $40 - $60 per hour, depending on experience.

This is an excellent opportunity for professionals returning to the workplace and for existing tax professionals at larger firms looking to downsize in hopes of achieving a better work-life balance. This is an opportunity that the right candidate can turn in to a multi-year position with a dynamic, family-friendly and highly-respected local CPA firm.

If interested, please provide us a cover letter and your resume.
