What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
“It is a challenge to keep up with all of the regulations of the tax code, which can require extensive research at times. I’m the type of person who wants to make sure I get it right for the client, so I’ll look to several sources before making a final recommendation. In most cases, there isn’t an example that matches the current situation being studied, so it is imperative to gather all available evidence and support for the situation.”
