Joe B. Kristan
My favorite part of public accounting is working with so many smart clients. I learn new insights every time I talk with them.

After 38 years centered on tax consulting for closely held businesses and their owners, Joe is joining Eide Bailly's National Tax Office. Joe's responsibilities include communication, process improvement and training. He is a principal contributor to the Eide Bailly Tax News and Views blog, providing daily updates on tax reform and other tax news. Joe is a Certified Public Accountant and a member of the AICPA Tax Section and Iowa Society of Public Accountants.

Clients benefit from Joe's decades of tax experience and his ability to communicate lessons learned and current developments in non-technical language.

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 and have found success in other fields. Joe began tax blogging back in 2001. He enjoys travel, the outdoors, chess, music and history. He also loves northern Minnesota, Northeast Iowa and...Finland.
