“I’ve been a part of the SALT community since it’s beginnings and have had the privilege to help it become what it is today.”

Fred is a partner in HMB’s State and Local Tax (SALT) group. He provides Fortune 500 companies with comprehensive state and local tax planning.

Fred assists multinational and multi-state companies in formulating their tax reporting positions at the state and local level, helping them advocate those positions and, when necessary, resolve disputes in courts up to, and including, the United States Supreme Court. His practice spans planning for state and local income, franchise, sales and use taxes, as well as support with tax audits and litigation.
