Our Story

Our Founding Vision

Our Mission The mission of TaxTalent is to optimize the careers of tax professionals while working to build best-in-class tax departments with the leaders that oversee and support the tax function.

Our Founding Vision For over three decades, TaxTalent and TaxSearch, Inc. have been at the forefront of recruiting, retention and talent development for the tax profession. It all started in 1987 when Anthony “Tony” Santiago started a niche recruiting firm specializing in the tax profession.

His business vision was grounded in the belief that the career of a tax professional, aside from a person’s faith and family, was one of the most important aspects of life. Santiago realized that by helping professionals advance their tax careers, he would be improving their lives and families as well as those within his growing company of tax recruiters and supporting staff.
