Tax Research Specialist

Salary: DOE

Why we're here:

We’re on a mission to transform business tax compliance for small business owners. Businesses are paying billions in tax penalties every single year for filing forms or making payments after they are due. We aid small business owners by using technology in taking charge of their tax requirements with deadline tracking, budgeting, and so much more. We are not a tax firm. We are a technology startup putting the power back in the hands of the business owner. We want to completely upend the status quo that says only the rich can benefit from great tax support.

Who we are:

We are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Our team was built on this foundation, and we live into these values on a daily basis. We’re a people-first company that genuinely believes in work-life balance. We believe people are happier and more productive working fully remote. Our headquarters is based in Los Angeles, CA and we are venture-backed by Techstars, Mucker, and Slauson & Co.

How we work:

We divide work into teams. You will be able to connect with others to learn and grow because we don’t believe in siloed skills and teams. We are better as a whole if we all can contribute anywhere and everywhere our skill sets could be of value. The Tax Research Specialist will be a member of the Tax Research team.
