As the leader of the firm’s state and local tax (SALT) group for Illinois, I help clients stay current on tax matters that impact their business and navigate the complexities of state and local taxes. My experience has taught me that the finer points of state and local taxes can be challenging for business owners. It’s rewarding to help people in this area, especially while working at Plante Moran where we have a culture of doing what’s best for the client.
I climbed an active volcano in Guatemala and looked straight into the lava pit — no tour guide, no safety rails, and no protective equipment. While it was clearly not a safe thing to do, I’ll never forget the adventure.
