With three decades experience in executive tax search, it is important to teach you what happens behind the scenes as tax professionals reach out to find full-time, part-time, remote and gig tax jobs.

This article is intended to enlighten you about the perception and the reality of finding a tax job today.

You will learn from the perspective of tax professionals searching for a tax job; and you will learn from the perspective of companies searching for tax professionals. You likely have heard the phrase “perception is reality” but the actual truth is that perception and reality are very different.

The Oxford Dictionary states “Perception is the way in which something is regarded, understood or interpreted” while “Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to the idealistic or notional idea of them. Reality is the way actual events actually unfold in the real world.” There is the perception and there is the reality involved in finding a tax job and knowing the difference will give you a significant competitive advantage.

According to @Work, 61 million Gen Z’ers are about to enter the U.S. workforces and change it forever. Gen Z’ers have lived a much different life than millennials and their parents. They are a generation that does not remember a life without a cell phone in their hand.

According to Pew Research, 70 million baby boomers who are adults ages 54 to 72 are staying in the labor force at rates not seen in generations for people their age. All of these statistics tell us our cloud based virtual offices are the future for generations to come.

What To Expect From A Revocable Living Trust

Revocable Living Trusts

Living trusts, otherwise known as inter vivos trusts, are created during the lifetime of the person who created the trust, who is otherwise known as the grantor, trustor, or settlor (hereinafter, “Grantor”).  A Revocable Living Trust (“RLT”) can be established for a specified period of time, upon the occurrence (or nonoccurrence) of a specified event, or until the death of the Grantor.  The three essential parties to an RLT are the Grantor, Trustee, and Beneficiary.

The Trustee manages the trust assets for the benefit of the Beneficiary.  The Grantor of an RLT retains the absolute right, during his lifetime, to alter the terms of the trust, amend the trust in whole or in part, and revoke the trust in its entirety.  A revocable trust morphs into an irrevocable trust when the Grantor dies, or when the Grantor surrenders title to the property held in the trust during his lifetime and relinquishes the right to alter, amend, revoke, or terminate the trust.

The Tax Remote Workforce Has A Very Strong Future

REMOTE WORKERS

According to the 2019 AICPA Accounting Graduates Supply and Demand Report, there are fewer people entering the accounting profession. It is a good report but I have something to add to the report that we hear in the trenches working with tax and accounting professionals every day. There is a very high number of three to five year trained tax and accounting professionals who have something to say on their exit interviews from the top 100 accounting firms. We have been fortunate to hear their voices in private counseling sessions in addition from the firms themselves. We want to share this information with you because it is important. We believe this will be why the remote tax and accounting workforce will continue to grow stronger. This is very good news for tax professionals seeking remote work.

Here are eight reasons the remote tax workforce is growing.

1. Innovation of computers, phones, connections through video and audio have a major impact on the ability to work remotely. As the remote tax workforce grows on sites like TaxConnections, more companies and governments are now finding it easier to identify this talent.

2. Highly trained Baby Boomers tax professionals (Born 1946 – 1964) want to continue to work and are readily making themselves available for remote jobs today.

According to Gallop, about one third of today’s workforce comes from the 75 million strong and active baby boomer generation. Baby Boomer tax professionals have a very strong work ethic.
