Your mission:

  • Take the lead in all outsourced US federal, state and local tax filings. This includes forecasting payments, ensuring returns are accurately prepared, and making sure all filings are made in a timely manner. Elements of this may be taken in-house over time.
  • Process tax audits as and when they arise
