Who we are
You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a large and growing professional services firm that still feels like a community. We employ over 2500 people across Canada, and we truly care about our colleagues, our clients and the communities where we work and live. That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a thriving organization that’s purpose driven and still want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is.

As an Analyst, US Personal Tax your responsibilities will include:
•    Preparing U.S. personal federal and state tax returns
•    Researching U.S. tax issues
•    Preparing file memoranda and client correspondence
•    Proactively resolve tax related issues with clients and other staff members through direct contact with them and researching and drafting responses
•    Identify and develop new opportunities for additional tax services
•    Provide exceptional client service

At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens!
