with special guest speaker Kelly Phillips Erb @therealtaxgirl
As featured in Forbes:
I focus on tax law including tax planning and tax controversy matters. My goal is to help taxpayers get compliant and stay out of trouble.
I earned my J.D. and LL.M. in Taxation from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia, PA. While at law school, I interned in the federal estate and gift tax attorney division of the IRS, and participated in the review and audit of federal estate tax returns.
I started writing using the moniker Taxgirl years ago and love making complicated information accessible to taxpayers and tax professionals.
I hate lists of awards but do have a few that I'm particularly proud of, including the Philadelphia Business Journal "40 under 40" and being named one of the Global Tax 50 by the International Tax Review for my "tireless and passionate tax reporting."
I love to travel with my family and spend much of my time explaining to the kids why we can’t move to Europe—this week.
