The Tax Technologist: Do you need one for your organization?

Episode 3 of 6

Tax Tech Today Thumnail

Episode Summary

As technology continues to evolve and impact the way companies do business, one division that is feeling these changes is the tax function. Tax leaders in an organization now need a sophisticated understanding of how technology impacts tax transactions, and executive management is demanding this level of understanding from their tax professionals.

This has given rise to two new kinds of professional titles knowns as taxologists and tax technologists. But there is a distinct difference between the two roles.

In episode three of the Tax Technology Today podcast series, our CTO talks to CIO Magazine about how roles in the tax office are poised to change, and what companies need to know to bring their tax staff up to date.
