Partner

Tom E. Pruner

The best part of my job is working collaboratively with my clients to develop appropriate solutions to meet their needs.

OVERVIEW

Serving Eide Bailly clients since 1982, Tom has extensive tax and accounting experience. He specializes in trust and estate income taxation, estate and gift taxation and financial planning. He oversees the preparation and filing of more than 1,000 trust returns every year.

Tom likes to get to know his clients and their business objectives, so when you work with him you get a partner who will do his homework and have answers ready often before you even realize you have a question. He's also a think outside the box kind of guy who enjoys the challenge of solving his clients' most complex challenges.

When he's not busy at the office, Tom's busy at the golf course working on his swing almost as diligently as he works on your tax returns. He also enjoys biking and scuba diving, although rarely at the same time ... it's hard to find underwater bike trails anywhere in the upper Midwest.
