Job Description:
Under the direction of a Supervising Tax Auditor, the Associate Tax Auditor is typically involved in auditing the more difficult and complex audits and may serve as a lead over less experienced auditors; makes appointments, meets with taxpayers and their representatives; analyzes complex business records, prepares appropriate audit reports, explains the audit findings and responds to tax inquiries. This position is designated as “mobile worker” per Board of Equalization Telework Policy. Meeting the training requirements for this position may require overnight travel for up to five consecutive nights. More than one position may be available. The position is in a high-rise building. All applicants will be considered; however, SROA/Surplus will be given priority. SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATION QUESTIONS: Associate Tax Auditors are Senior Sales and Use Tax Auditors. As such, they are required to have a good knowledge of Sales and Use Tax Laws, Regulations, policies and audit procedures. This questionnaire is designed to assist in assessing your qualifications for a position as a Senior Tax Auditor in the Sales and Use Tax Department of the Board of Equalization. Applications submitted without a completed questionnaire will not receive further consideration for this position. Please limit you response to no more than two (2) pages. 1) Because of their sales and use tax audit experience, Senior Tax Auditors audit medium to large businesses and similar size governmental entities to determine if they are in compliance with their reporting requirements under California Sales and Use Tax Law. Please list examples of your experience auditing large or complex businesses. Include the company, type of business, hours to complete and any major or complex errors or issues addressed. 2) Auditing larger businesses requires a good knowledge working with electronic data and statistical sampling to develop a test that will support your conclusion of whether a business has properly reported in a specific area. Please list examples of your experience, including the use of a computer audit specialist and the type of transactions and samples used. Please include any details on how you decided to pull or stratify samples in a large population. 3) Since Senior Tax Auditors audit larger businesses, they tend to become aged. Please describe some of the challenges you have encountered in your audits and the procedures you used to complete them in a timely manner. 4) Because of their expertise of Sales and Use Tax Law and audit procedures, Senior Tax Auditors conduct special projects, instruct law and audit classes for other auditors, train new auditors and prepare written legal advice for taxpayers.
