How I help . . .

In two recent instances, taxpayers discovered that their previous advisors had missed critical and potentially costly tax election deadlines. Unfortunately, the standard safe-harbor deadlines under which the IRS could extend those deadlines had passed. We therefore filed requests for Private Letter Rulings with the IRS to get extensions to file these elections. After discussing the issues with the IRS Associate Chief Counsel and filing the appropriate requests with the IRS, the IRS issued Private Letter Rulings granting extensions of time to file the missed elections.

Q&A with Bob

What does above + beyond mean to you?
This means that we strive to be the best firm in our profession, and we dig deep to find the best solutions for our clients.
What does being a strategic ally mean to you?
A strategic ally is an advisor who gets to know you well in order to anticipate your needs.
What makes you unique?
Something that makes me unique is my past service as a Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) board member. I have served more consecutive time on the board than any other member in history. During my period of service, the PDGA and disc golf as a whole grew from a small entity and only vaguely known sport to a strong and growing international entity and well-known international sport.
What type of sports are you good at?
I am an Advanced League billiards (8 ball) player, and I am an Advanced Senior Grandmaster disc golfer.
What is your family like and what are some things you like to do together?
I’ve been married to my wonderful wife for almost 50 years, and we have 2 kids, 3 grandchildren and 2 step-grandchildren together. My wife and I own a time share, and we love traveling with the grandchildren whenever we get the chance.
