Tax Specialist Jobs in Illinois

Guide individuals and companies through tax-related issues. Tax specialists complete clients’ tax forms and audit their records in order to minimize liabilities and/or maximize returns. They have an in-depth understanding of federal, state, and local tax laws, and use this knowledge to ensure that customers maintain compliance and all necessary files in case of a dispute.

Tax specialists are highly organized and rely on their close attention to detail in order to track which records each client needs to submit. They must also monitor and meet all deadlines to avoid incurring late fees.
