What does a Tax Manager do?
Tax managers are primarily responsible for accurately preparing and filing state and federal tax documents. In addition, tax managers develop tax strategies and policies that help the client or business maintain compliance with local and federal tax laws and regulations. Lastly, tax managers work to identify tax problems and propose solutions. Tax managers can work in-house for a business or work as a consultant for multiple clients.
Tax managers generally have a bachelor's or master's degree in accounting, business, economics, or finance. In addition, many states and all publicly traded companies require that tax managers have their Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license from the local state board of accountancy. Obtaining a CPA license entails education, accounting experience, and passing the Uniform CPA Examination.
