A tax accountant typically prepares the year-end or quarterly returns and statements for their clients. However, they may also work with them throughout the year to give advice on how to lower their tax liability and to ensure that public filings are handled properly.
There are many laws and regulations that especially affect how a corporation or business may handle their tax returns, and a tax accountant is meant to stay current on this legislation. It is their job to ensure that all filings for that company, or their individual clients, are done in compliance with these laws. In some cases they may also act as an auditor to check these statements as well.
