Private Equity Tax Operations Manager
This position can be anywhere in the country
As private equity transactions close, our clients quickly transition from the deal to implementing operations plans to drive value, of which tax is a key component. Our clients also look to us to identify tax planning strategies and to develop and implement tax operations plans that create value for them. In your role as a Private Equity Tax Operations Manager, you will see this firsthand by being immersed in the evolving tax environment through teaming with our global private equity professionals to develop and oversee the implementation of post-transaction tax operating plans, prepare income tax filings, prepare and audit income tax provisions, consult on planning opportunities, and coach and develop your engagement teams.
