About the Role:
The Tax Senior Associate is a key member of the team responsible for executing federal and state income tax compliance for 6500+ funds launched on the AngelList Venture platform. This involves sanity checking work that has been automated, preparing work that is still currently prepared manually, identifying and resolving exceptions, and addressing investor questions. The second part of the job is to help Belltower scale through product and process design. This requires understanding where our data currently is and how it is populated, understanding the relevant tax laws, and then defining how the tax rules should be applied to our data to arrive at outputs for tax reporting. This role is open for most locations in the US.
The Tax Senior Associate will report to the tax senior manager. The Tax Senior Associate will work with other tax team members, members of the engineering team, and other cross-functional operations teams.

This candidate has experience with preparing and reviewing federal partnership returns and reviewing partnership agreements. This candidate will have the ability to effectively communicate with investors and portfolio companies at high volume and with polished professionalism.
