Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
As a Senior-Level Tax Director, I offer a proven track record of success in cultivating strong teams for corporate tax accounting and other factions while driving improvement projects for companies across a wide-range of industries, including retail, technology, healthcare, and manufacturing segments. I offer added value by leading external audits and negotiating with government entities to ensure compliance and remove any incidents of findings.
I am highly adept at building and developing strong teams while significantly impacting financial performance through the development and implementation of innovative tax strategies that minimize federal and state taxes. Examples of my work include:
- Administered U.S. federal and state tax compliance, tax accounting (ASC 740) and planning for Company A and its subsidiaries nationwide. Led successful implementation of outside consulting projects with Big 4 accounting and consulting firms in order to drive tax saving initiatives.
- Managed the tax component of financial due diligence for 30+ mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures of stocks, assets, and various joint ventures associated with the company’s aggressive growth strategy.
- Directed several successful “no change” federal income tax audits as well as numerous state income and franchise tax, sales tax, use tax, and property tax audits for Company B.
- Established and enhanced the tax department’s policies and procedures within the guidelines of the organization’s structure while effectively adhering to all SOX documentation requirements.
Eager to take on my next opportunity, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. Also, I would like to meet in person to discuss your goals and how I can help you achieve them. I am available at your convenience. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to your call.
Sara H. Smith, CPA
