Willis Johnson & Associates (WJA) is inviting a Certified Public Accountant or an Enrolled Agent to join our tax department as a full-time contract tax preparer during the 2021 tax season. WJA is not a CPA firm, but is a Registered Investment Advisory firm. Our service to our clients is to provide a comprehensive financial plan for every stage of life, including vital tax planning and compliance. A seasonal tax contractor with WJA will have the opportunity to experience tax compliance and planning as it fits into a broader financial plan, without the usual sweat-shop tax season environment. This contract opportunity is ideal for a candidate who is available for seasonal work during January through April.
