Jeff, who has almost 30 years of public accounting experience, joined KS&Co in 2005 to lead the firm's Corporate Tax Services practice. 

Jeff’s practice focuses on complete or partial tax department outsourcing for corporations.  Services offerings include income tax provision (aka “ASC 740”¸ “FAS 109” and “FIN 48”) assistance and review; income tax return preparation and review; federal, state, and international tax planning; and day to day consulting.  Jeff currently provides full or partial outsourced tax department services to more than 60 public and many more pre-public companies located in Southern California and throughout the West Coast.  The companies KS&Co serve range in size from multi–billion dollar organizations with established internal tax departments to start–up ventures with no internal income tax expertise. 

Prior to joining KS&Co, Jeff was a Principal with Ernst & Young LLP in San Diego where he served as the lead tax service coordinator for many of the area’s prominent companies, including numerous SEC registrants.  Jeff has provided a broad range of tax services to his clients including federal, state, and international tax planning and consultation, and tax return preparation and review. 

Jeff’s primary focus is Accounting for Income Tax (aka “ASC 740”¸ fka “FAS 109”).  At Ernst & Young, Jeff served as an area FAS 109 technical leader, was a member of the firm’s FAS 109 technical support network, and was a lead instructor for the firm’s Accounting for Income Tax and Sarbanes Oxley 404 for Income Tax training programs and seminars. 

Jeff began his career in Silicon Valley with Arthur Andersen and Price Waterhouse.  Jeff left Northern California after he was recruited by Ernst & Young to head their tax practice in Reno, Nevada.  After three years in Reno, Jeff relocated to Ernst & Young’s San Diego Office.  Jeff graduated Cum Laude from Marquette University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting.
