Hiring: Tax Preparer / Bookkeeper

We offer an extremely flexible work environment – both in terms of schedule and work-from-home opportunities. With that, the person taking this job will need to be a self-starter and able to manage themselves. We are generally here as resources for when employees need assistance, but otherwise people generally go about their day-to-day autonomously. Anyone needing or wanting extensive oversight would not do well here. But for the right person/people who do not generally enjoy having a “boss” looking over their shoulders all the time, this position is a dream.
