After graduating from law school, Mark took a position as an honor's hire at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel. During his time there, Mark was able to learn a great deal about the audit and tax controversy approach and tactics employed by the government. While at Chief Counsel, Mark worked on a variety of issues facing small businesses and the self-employed which included expense substantiation, foreign income issues, flow-through adjustments, fraud, summonses, collection due process, and various other issues facing taxpayers. Mark also took classes offered by the government to expand his knowledge on issues facing partnerships and S Corps as well as litigation strategy.
During his time at Chief Counsel, Mark learned a great deal. But he also realized that the thing he enjoyed most about the work was helping taxpayers work through often complex issues. It was these interactions that helped him realize that he would prefer to work with taxpayers directly rather than attempting to help after a lengthy and often fraught audit process. In his life, Mark has worked in a lot of different industries and with a great variety of people. Mark believes that this has positioned him to be able to clearly and effectually communicate with just about anyone.
In his free time, Mark enjoys traveling, cooking, hiking, and learning.
