More About Paul

Paul Wallace, CPA, CFP®, provides integrated income tax, estate tax, investment management, charitable giving and personal financial planning services to high net worth individuals, families and their closely-held businesses.

Clients know Paul as an advisor who anticipates their needs and concerns, and offers solutions that save money and add security to their short and long-term financial situation. For example, Paul advises a high net worth family who was about to take its company public. Paul developed a strategy for contributing family-owned stock to a grantor retained annuity trust (GRAT) before the company went public, and before family members knew they should take any action with the stock. This strategy transferred wealth to the family’s next generation and without the cost of a transfer tax.

Paul serves clients in the real estate, construction and distribution industries, as well as nonprofit organizations. He helps nonprofit organizations and private foundations with financial statement and tax return compliance, budgeting, planned giving, tax-exempt financing matters, minimizing unrelated business income tax (UBIT) and management consulting.

In addition to being a CPA, he is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. Paul has provided expert witness testimony with respect to both income taxation and financial planning matters.
