Tax Associate

for R.D. Barnett PLLC in Seattle, WA USA

Our team is seeking an exceptionally bright and self-motivated Tax Associate to support our team. We do not expect you to know all of the answers, but we do expect you to identify problems and form solutions. The solutions may not be the most effective at first, but overtime as your experiences broaden, so will the quality of your solutions.


The Tax Associate will be involved with the tax compliance processes for our entity and individual clients. This includes participating in pre-busy season tax planning, gathering information, setting up files, entering data, preparing tax calculations, drafting returns for review, reviewing tax returns, e-filing, paper processing returns for delivery, participating in tax research and consultation, audit representation, and other technical projects.


To excel at our firm and to find lasting satisfaction in doing so, you will exhibit these qualities:

  • Responsible. You have never been responsible for a late filing penalty.
  • Trustworthy. You have a high level of integrity, discretion, and independent judgement and you guard client sensitive information more effectively than 256-bit encryption.
  • Organized. You schedule reoccurring work to take place on the same day (maybe even hour) of each period and you regularly use your calendar to set reminders to follow up on items in advance of being asked.
  • Communicative. You are excited by the thought of emailing or calling a client directly and you have exceptional written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills.
  • Self-Motivated. You feel greater satisfaction in researching an answer over being told the answer.
  • Accountable. You understand that even the smallest of mistakes have extreme consequences, but does not stop taking measured risks.
  • Proactive. You are an analytical thinker able to remain one step ahead, anticipating potential problems and possibilities and providing solutions and support before they?re needed. 
  • Detail-Oriented. You have impeccable documentation skills and never let anything slip between the cracks. 
  • Flexible. You are able to adapt and move in an ever-changing, fast-paced, deadline driven environment. 
  • Service-Minded. You demonstrate a strong ability to deliver superior customer service and you offer to take out the trash, both literally and figuratively.
  • Enthusiastic. You are a team player with an energetic attitude, sense of humor, drive for variety, and have an appreciation for accelerated growth and in a fun fast-paced environment.

As we grow, what is needed today will be different from what is needed tomorrow; therefore, you will need to maintain flexibility with regard to their initial and future duties. Within this role, there is an opportunity for expansion of duties and title based on contributions made to the firm over the term of employment.
