My favorite part of public accounting is working with so many smart clients. I learn new insights every time I talk with them.
Joe is a problem solver and helps clients succeed by finding a tax-friendly path to their goals. He works primarily with closely held businesses and serves the agriculture, distribution and manufacturing industries.
Clients value Joe's knowledge. He's been a tax practitioner since 1984 so he knows numbers and how to reach the best solution for clients. Joe's extensive writing and teaching experience make him an effective communicator and advisor.
An Illinoisan by birth and an Iowan by choice, Joe is married and has two sons. His children were not beguiled by the glamor of public accounting—one is a professional musician in Chicago, and the other plans to study things other than accounting in college. Joe's been a blogger since before it was cool, authoring a tax update blog for 17 years. He enjoys travel, the outdoors, chess, music and history. He also loves northern Minnesota—don't worry, Joe, we won't tell Iowa.
