Our clients' businesses will only succeed if they're built on strong foundations and grown in a sustainable way. At EY, we believe that managing our clients' tax obligations responsibly and proactively can make a critical difference. Our talented tax professionals provide technical knowledge, business judgment, consistency and an unwavering commitment to quality service - wherever they are and whatever tax services they need.
Developing our people is an important priority throughout Ernst & Young. In the Tax practice, you have a unique development opportunity through our Diversified Staff Group, or DSG. Throughout your first 4-5 years with the firm, you'll have the opportunity to gain experiences in a variety of different Tax sub-service lines. This gives you the experiences you need to really find out where your interests and talents lie so that in your third year, you can start to become more specialized. Prioritizing your development in this way makes you the strongest tax professional possible.

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
