Nick Stefaniak has been a CPA for more than 25 years, with a specialization in taxation.  He has dealt with personal & business taxes as well as non-profit taxation (public charities & private foundations).  His practice in public accounting focuses on compliance (preparing tax returns) as well as planning for the immediate & longer-term future.

Some of the most interesting planning has focused on conversions of traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs, deferred compensation, & entity choice (for example, how an LLC ought to be taxed in your situation).

Nick has worked in public accounting as well as wealth planning, where he applied his knowledge of income & estate / inheritance tax to succession planning situations.
