The Bahnsen Group is very excited to announce the ongoing fortification of our entirely in-house Tax Services Department, dedicated to serving only the clients of The Bahnsen Group, with deeply integrated tax planning, consultative service, and tax preparation. Our vision for holistic financial services goes beyond rhetoric and is evidenced when our investment professionals, private wealth advisors, and tax consultants all walk the same hallways, sit in the same client meetings, and serve the same clients. This investment by our firm is a substantial move towards a better client experience, from significantly reduced client expense to a vastly improved tax planning and preparation process.

She received her Masters in Business Taxation from Golden Gate University, is a Certified Public Accountant, and is a Member of the California Society of CPAs and AICPA. Her twenty years of tax advisory experience and careful diligence in working with clients have already made her a true leader in our tax services offering.
