VP of Tax


We’re looking for a VP of Tax or something. The title is a little hard to nail, but if the job you seek is meaningful, tough, and fulfilling work, we have the perfect role for you. We operate worldwide and in every state. It’s a lot of tax work and compliance. It’s a complicated structure and complicated problems. We seek someone who has started their career on the public accounting spectrum, and then moved into the corporate side and spent 10+ years being the actual person making the decisions about taxes and compliance.

When we ask you to “tell us about some of your war stories”, you don’t have to think about it and you’re probably already smiling at how you were able to stand up to and outsmart some of those agencies out there. You don’t think of yourself as a desk jockey, but as a smart, savvy corporate tax partner. You want the ball at the end of the game and you’re getting to the goal line even though the other team might be “bigger”, because you are smarter than them.

You’ll be the person here driving the decisions we make tax wise and ultimately a major part of those decisions. We’re not looking for a tax prep person to dump 1000 pages of returns onto a non-tax persons desk and ask for approval. You’ll be a very trusted partner in how we grow and run our corporate structure. We pay a LOT in taxes. We’re looking for someone to help us be as efficient as possible.

This position is coded as “Hybrid” which means after initial training and on-boarding which will take place in office, occasional remote work is available. However, this role will be expected to continue to work in our Post Falls, Idaho office 3-4 days/week.

Higher pay. Or just more profit for the owner and the ability for the owner to buy a really nice new pickup anytime wanted. You love all things business and you love connecting tax and compliance into a meaningful business strategy.

You like solving problems. You like organization and getting stuff done. You thought being a CPA at a firm would be amazing and then every time you hand someone a bill they are bummed… and you’re like, maybe if I am a partner at a firm and make money off of everyone else and only work on the premium clients I’ll be happier and then you realized, the premium clients are still bummed when you hand them a bill and you hopped online and by chance, you happened to stumble onto the weirdest Sr Tax Manager posting you’ve read and you now feel a little tingle… a little excitement like maybe just maybe Corporate Tools could save your soul and provide a fulfilling career where you have no cap to what you could do with taxes and actually help running a business.
