  • Responsibilities

    In our Financial Services Organization (FSO), we build a better working world by rallying together to solve the most complex challenges. We accomplish this by building trusted relationships, keeping an open mind, going all in, being bold and courageous, and taking risks worth taking. We help build a financial services industry in which financial institutions are trusted, customers’ financial goals are attainable, and the global economy is growing and secure. In today’s complex business environment, that means understanding the relationship between risk, the regulatory environment, and performance improvement, and applying our knowledge to help clients achieve their business objectives.

    Within the FSO, our talented tax professionals provide technical knowledge, business judgment, consistency and an unwavering commitment to quality service to clients all over the world. In today’s increasingly complex business landscape our clients’ businesses will only succeed if they’re built on strong foundations and grown in a sustainable way. At EY, we believe that managing our clients’ tax obligations responsibly and proactively can make a critical difference – wherever our clients are and whatever tax services they need.

    The opportunity As part of the Fiduciary/Trust Tax Services, you’ll be responsible for producing accurate tax reports in a volume-driven environment within deadline-sensitive time frames established by governmental agencies. With support from a highly talented team, you’ll be trained, coached and mentored with responsibilities growing incrementally as you learn and develop in the role. It’s a unique opportunity where you’ll be exposed to a variety of clients and projects so you can grow and develop, making your mark on the future of this practice.

    What to expect You’re likely to balance your time between multiple projects and responsibilities, supporting seniors and managers to help work through their individual engagements reconciling returns, e-filing returns, and validating data in the tax system. It’s all about working with multiple clients with different accounting systems, understanding these systems and understanding the nuances of how to obtain data. As part of that, you’ll need to learn how to read trust agreements, learn the compliance and information reporting rules, have a great understanding of technology, and be able to work in a team environment.

    Your key responsibilities

    • Reviewing and correcting account and transaction data bridged from client accounting systems to company licensed software application, which entails initiating and reviewing data scans and hard copy of account and transaction data
    • Using knowledge of tax law and software applications to correct data in various ways, including modifying tax coding and insertion of missing or corrected data
    • Reviewing source data and make decisions with regard to proper tax reporting of income, deductions, sales and beneficiary allocation using company systems
    • Participating in internal and external training in order to maintain and enhance knowledge of tax law and software applications
