Stacie Clifford Kitts, CPA

Tax Partner

“I have an almost obsessive need to make sure my clients retain the wealth they have worked hard to build. There is nothing wrong with paying your fair share. But it irks me when someone pays more simply because a so called professional gave them bad advice or ignored them all together. A good tax strategy is based on planning and know how. Remember, “hope” is not a strategy.”

With Haskell & White since: 2017
