The opportunity: your next adventure awaits
EY’s National Tax Department (NTD) serves high-profile clients by providing a range of tax planning and tax-related advisory services. The combination of knowledge and experience forms the basis of our ability to assist clients in meeting their business objectives. The Exempt Organizations (EO) Tax Services practice operates within the NTD, and focuses exclusively on tax exempt organizations, including universities, health care systems, and high profile charities that are integral to the well-being of their communities. As part of the EO team, you will have the chance to help ensure these organizations maintain their tax exempt status, and are viable to serve their exempt purpose for years to come.
As a member of our EO tax team, you will learn about the business of tax exempt organizations, and understand how they maintain their exemption from paying taxes. However, as you progress within EY and our group, you will become a trusted business advisor to your clients, and will help these organizations grow. On top of this, you will benefit from being led, developed, and mentored by nationally recognized tax professionals who include some of the firm’s most senior tax talent.
As a Staff on our tax team, you will split your time among tax compliance, tax consulting, and provision review. This will involve preparing tax returns, responding to clients’ technical questions, and reviewing audit work papers – but only within tax exempt organizations. The EO tax practice also invests in the development of its team, with frequent virtual training, update calls, and in-person trainings to help individuals develop technical skills and learn about new areas of the law. Through your experiences, you will develop your skill sets and learn how tax exempt organizations are organized, operated, and perform their missions within their communities.
