“Tax professionals have to raise their game continuously to take advantage of challenging opportunities. Adapting to constant change keeps us motivated and creates a stimulating work environment…I can assure you it’s becoming more and more challenging— and exciting—every day.”

-Mark Mendola, Vice Chairman & U.S. Tax Leader, PwC

PwC Tax

PwC’s Tax practice is on the cutting edge of one of the most challenging and intellectually rigorous fields, working with some of the world’s largest organizations on tax planning, global structuring, and tax controversy. At PwC, we solve problems, adding value to our clients and helping companies navigate an increasingly complex tax environment.

Who we are

In PwC Tax, you can build the career that works for you.

You will work across many areas of tax to help you broaden your compliance and consulting skills. Through wide-ranging assignments, you can determine where your greatest talents and interests lie. And as you move toward manager, you can deepen your specialized skills and experience in one of our highly specialized practice areas.

But you are not on your own. Tax at PwC is a relationship business. Careers are built in a team-oriented, open, and inclusive environment. Team leaders and coaches act as mentors, helping you make the most of your experiences so that you can grow, explore new opportunities, and achieve your potential.

What's ahead in the tax world?

In the tax profession, the use of data analytics for both compliance and consulting will soon become the norm; tax professionals will also be data analysts. Information that stood stagnant in paper files before can now be collected in seconds, freeing up our professionals to do strategic work by using data in new ways. We can now analyze entire data sets, as opposed to smaller samples, and make decisions based on them.

Over the next few years, we will fundamentally transform the way we go about tax compliance. This transformation will allow our professionals to focus more on the logic behind the data queries, fine tuning their analytical skills and enhancing their knowledge of technical tax and the client industry and its business process in their review of results. It’s about working smarter, and using innovation and technology to make that happen.
