bio

Image000

After nine years with a national firm and seven years as the retail tax manager for a national grocery wholesaler, I opened my own small firm in 2002. Since then I have kept nearly all of the retail grocery clients. Most satisfying is watching the retailers grow their businesses and knowing that I am playing my part in their continued success.

q & a

What characteristics do your favorite clients share?

Most of my clients are small business owners. While willing to take calculated risks, they are highly ethical and committed to reducing their tax burdens in a lawful and defensible manner. We accomplish this through research, education and early planning.

Why should a client hire you?

We are committed to your success and will help you develop solutions to tax issues which may arise. The Tax Code is ever-changing and we will assist you in keeping up with new laws as they affect your business.

Describe a time where you went beyond expectations when working with a client.

A couple of years ago, two of our grocery store clients in northwest PA were audited by the IRS for the Small Employer Health Insurance Premium Credit under the ACA. I flew out both times to represent the client (no charge for travel) and both audits resulted in no change. The credits involved were about $20,000 per year, a meaningful amount for small business owners.

What single project or task would you consider your most significant accomplishment in your career to date?

Most of my clients are pass-through entities, which means I prepare the personal returns as well. I use spreadsheets that reflect the income history for each year that the family has been a client. When I look at the progress of these business people and see their success in black and white on the page, it is satisfying to know that I am part of the financial team that made their success possible.
