What kind of work does the tax division of an investment bank do?

from Goldman's website:

"We're a team of specialists charged with managing the firm's worldwide taxes. We are responsible for tax compliance, financial reporting of taxes, tax planning, business advisory and management of taxing authority examinations. Our work contributes directly to the firm's success, and the division is ideal for creative and collaborative individuals who have strong ethics and attention to detail"

No one seems to talk about it much. Is this typical back office stuff? An accountancy job? How is the pay like?

Harum nihil fugit qui. Molestiae itaque eos eaque ut. Perferendis eaque harum magni reprehenderit. Laborum dolorem officiis soluta provident. Magni illum incidunt et.

Explicabo recusandae qui nihil eaque. Fugit et optio suscipit quidem commodi autem aut. Ipsam est veniam eius perferendis enim qui. Esse impedit at iusto dolor numquam fuga magni.
