     supervisor, manager or partner.


 3. Completely prepare complicated tax returns with the ability to recognize complex tax     

     issues, including multi-state tax returns and other tax returns with high volumes of activity.


 4. Become proficient at tax research, including knowledge of the reference sources available         to the firm.


5. Plan and coordinate various phases of tax engagements, including budgeting time,

    monitoring actual performance against budget, preparing returns with the highest quality of

    accuracy and completeness.


6. Develop strong technical knowledge sufficient to prepare returns accurately and completely. 


7. Begin acquiring the skills necessary to develop quality client relationships and loyalty.


8. Prepare client billings.


9. Prepare fee proposals for prospective clients


10. Be a self-starter who is capable of meeting time constraints and client deadlines, managing

      workload, progressing projects independently and working with a dynamic team.

     preparation to supervise engagements.


12. Train clients on how to use QuickBooks.
