Adam Sweet, J.D., LL.M.

Principal

Adam Sweet

I enjoy the process of understanding a client’s business deal in order to help the client match the tax implications to the deal. I always appreciate the moment when I am able to explain a tax concept in a way that a client with no specific tax expertise can follow.

OVERVIEW

Adam leads Eide Bailly’s Passthrough Entity Consulting group. He has extensive knowledge in the area of partnership tax, including interpreting partnership agreements, allocation and distribution provisions, and issuing compensatory equity. He is experienced with both the buying and selling sides of domestic and foreign joint ventures, as well as a variety of IRS controversy matters, including IRS exams and appeals hearings. Adam is also part of Eide Bailly’s Opportunity Zone and Paycheck Protection Program working groups.

Adam has a talent for distilling tax rules into concepts that can be understood by non-tax professionals. He is responsive and transparent with clients, and always takes an open ear to his interactions, listening carefully to understand all sides of an issue before reaching any conclusions.

Outside of the office, Adam is a family man who enjoys everyday moments with his wife and kids. When he wants to unwind, he loves getting outdoors for a run or a round of golf.
