How Jim is building a better working world
“I lead teams that develop and leverage cutting-edge technologies to efficiently deliver complex wealth management tax reporting offerings. These offerings contribute to efficient and effective financial markets and assist taxpayers in completing accurate and timely tax filings.
“Accurate tax filings promote the efficient administration of our tax laws and provide taxpayers with information necessary to develop robust financial plans that are the most effective for their particular fact pattern so that over the short and long term they can meet their financial objectives.”
