ROTTERDAM — The state Department of Taxation and Finance is hiring temporary full-time employees at its new call intake center at ViaPort Rotterdam.
Applications for tax aides will be taken from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 26 at a booth near the mall’s fountain and guest services offices. The Taxation and Finance Department moved last month from a location in Albany to a new office in a portion of the former Macy’s store at ViaPort Rotterdam.
The open positions are for tax information aides, who work during the winter-spring tax season and who are expected to assist callers during the upcoming tax-preparation season.
The pay is $14.58 per hour, according to an announcement. Those hired will be expected to assist taxpayers with state tax issues and provide general information. The department said training is provided, and no previous tax experience is necessary.
Candidates will be expected to have basic computer skills and effective communications and customer service skills, as well as the ability to work under pressure, according to the department’s job announcement.
