We are representing over 20 well established, highly profitable CPA firms throughout the U. S. (most west of the Mississippi) with soon to be retiring Partners looking for a strong Tax Manager ready to move into a direct entry Partnership. The soon to be retiring owners of the firms have a large, well established book of business (generally between $500K and $2.5MM) consisting primarily of small businesses and individual tax clients. A CPA license is preferred, however some firms will also consider IRS certified EAs (Enrolled Agents.) The Tax Manager / Partner will be in charge of tax compliance, planning, review and preparation; and will supervise a small staff of Tax Accountants, bookkeepers, and administrative personnel. They will have direct client contact and responsibility for client representation with the IRS and state tax agencies. Requires candidates with both strong tax technical skills and a very good credit rating, as they will typically need to qualify for an SBA loan for 75% of the value of the practice. No cash is required as a private investor will typically put up the cash required, as well as add tremendous value in other areas, typically in return for a 15% limited equity position. Some firms will assist with both interview and relocation expenses, although local candidates are preferred.

S., including Ann Arbor, Burbank, Concord, Dallas, Fontana, Houston, Irvine, Los Angeles, Marina Del Rey, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Overland Park, Phoenix, Pleasant Hill, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco East Bay, San Jose, Sherman Oaks, Seattle, Ventura, and Westwood (West Los Angeles).
