Ernst & Young LLP announced today that Eric Oman has joined the organization as an Executive Director in International Tax Services after more than three years as the Legislative Assistant to US Sen. Michael B. Enzi (WY), a member of the US Senate Finance and Budget Committees. He will be based in Washington, DC, in EY’s National Tax Department.

“Eric’s work, particularly on international tax reform, enhances the ability we have to help our clients understand the likelihood of change and its implications,” says Michael Mundaca, Co-Director of National Tax for Ernst & Young LLP and Co-Director of the EY Americas Tax Center. “We are pleased that Eric is rejoining EY, bringing broad knowledge and deep experience to help clients keep up with these changes.”

Since 2010, Oman has provided Sen. Enzi with technical and legislative advice on tax issues considered by the Senate Finance Committee as well as advice on fundamental tax reform addressed by both the Finance and Budget Committees. In 2012, Oman assisted Sen. Enzi in authoring legislation to reform the US international tax system (S.2091, the United States Job Creation and International Tax Reform Act of 2012, 112th Congress).

He provided Sen. Enzi with information on tax accounting and financial reporting implications of tax legislation under Senate consideration. Oman was responsible for advancing the Senator’s tax and budget legislative priorities, including preparing legislation and briefing the Senator for tax and budget hearings. Specifically, he was responsible for preparing legislation to reform the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA) rules, modifying the due dates of several tax and information returns and providing authority to states to require collection of sales taxes by certain online retailers.

Oman began his career with EY in 1999, working in the San Jose, CA office before moving to Italy representing EY’s US Tax Desk as part of its international tax network. In 2007, he moved to the Washington, DC office where he focused on legislative developments affecting the US international tax rules and analyzing technical issues of tax provisions such as subpart F, the foreign tax credit regime and the interpretation of US income tax treaties.

Oman has spoken at industry conferences and authored a series of articles for BNA’s Tax Management International Journal.

Oman received his Bachelors of Science in Business and Masters in Business Administration from Indiana University. He is licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in the District of Columbia, California and Indiana.
