Melissa C. Mattox
Tax Manager

I’m a CPA because I love learning. Tax laws are always changing; every client is unique; and each decision provides a different result. Every day I come to work and it feels like there’s a new puzzle on my desk waiting for me to put all the pieces together.

Practical Experience

Breadth of experience. I oversee the preparation of nearly 500 tax returns every year, meaning I have helped thousands of businesses, individuals, estates, trusts, and non-profits comply with tax laws and save money.

Planning ahead. I have helped clients save thousands of dollars by planning ahead and recommending like-kind exchanges, purchase price allocations, cost segregation studies and other tax-saving techniques.

IRS veteran. I have responded to hundreds of letters from the Internal Revenue Service and other government authorities and successfully argued for penalty abatements, supported deductions claimed, and resolved numerous other inquiries.
