Tax Attorney Job Description

A tax attorney is a lawyer who handles legal matters related to taxes and taxation. Tax is a very complicated area of law and tax attorneys must be knowledgeable about the intricacies of federal, state and local taxes and taxing regulations. Tax attorneys render advice on matters such as income tax, tax credits and tax deductions, state and local taxes, capital gains taxes, and the tax implications of corporate transactions such as M&A deals, banking deals, capital transactions and more. Because tax is such a complex and sophisticated area of law, many tax attorneys decide to get an LL.M. in taxation, which is a post-law school specialist degree in a given area of law.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
