Last week congress passed the most comprehensive overhaul to the US tax code in decades.

Identity theft has become one of the fasted growing crimes in America. The Federal Trade Commission has found that 9.9 million American fall victim to identity theft every year. Many of us have personal experience being victims of identity theft. Last fall, my car was broken into and my purse, containing my driver’s license, credit cards, etc. was stolen. Not only was I scared for the safety of myself and my family, but I was now faced with significant financial concerns as the criminals attempted to purchase various items under my name.

I began as a Senior Tax Accountant and was later promoted to a Tax Manager, but most recently, I’ve been honored with the opportunity to join the partner group. Singer Burke’s focus on planning, client education, and teamwork have made me proud of developing within this firm, and the experience has galvanized me for years to come!
