Lancaster, Pa.-based IPA 100 firm RKL LLP has brought in Michael Bannasch to lead its state and local tax practice and Kirsten Deeds to lead the international tax practice.
Bannasch has nearly two decades of public accounting experience, largely centered on state and local tax consulting. He specializes in nexus studies, reverse sales/use tax audits, apportionment sourcing analyses, audit representation and M&A due diligence.
Deeds has 17 years of experience in international tax, specializing in U.S. taxation of foreign earnings, transfer pricing, U.S. and Canadian compliance and accounting for income taxes.
“When companies do business across borders, whether it’s another state or country, tax obligations automatically become more complex,” says RKL partner Wendy Lance, leader of the tax services group. “Tapping experts like Michael and Kirsten to lead these specialized tax practice areas allows us to not only help our clients manage compliance, but also proactively recommend strategies to strengthen their financial standing.”
