Amgen's tax reporting group is part of a world class tax department that provides global tax planning, transfer pricing, tax reporting, and tax audit defense for the Company. The tax reporting group works closely with Finance, Accounting, and Treasury employees in Tampa and Amgen's Thousand Oaks headquarters to prepare Amgen's financial statement tax provision and its U.S. federal and state income tax returns.

At Amgen, our mission is simple: to serve patients. Our new Tampa Capability Center provides essential services that enable us to better pursue this mission. This state-of-the-art center serves as a base for finance, information systems, and human resources professionals to make a meaningful impact at one of the world's leading biotechnology companies.

This includes permanent and temporary differences, transfer pricing rules and the international aspects of the recently enacted U.S. tax reform provisions.
