For more than a quarter century, Robert M. Swaim has devoted his career to tax accounting. He has prepared federal, state and local tax returns for all types of clients — individuals, small and large businesses, and trusts. He has also represented taxpayers in IRS audits, defended them against aggressive IRS collections efforts, and helped resolve hundreds of tax problems.
He has even represented CPAs being audited by the IRS.
Tax problems can be complex. In some cases, such as those involving divorce or other legal procedures, state laws can factor into IRS decisions. To be successful, you need an experienced advocate — someone who knows how to research tax court rulings, IRS advisories, state court decisions and other important sources of information.
Robert describes himself as a “tax nerd.” His skill in tax research, his extensive reading of tax court and other legal rulings, and his firsthand experience with the Internal Revenue Service help him ensure that clients pay only the taxes they actually owe under the law.
Before turning his focus exclusively on tax work, Mr. Swaim was a corporate accountant and taught accounting at the college level. He has a bachelor’s degree in business from East Carolina University and a master of accountancy with a tax concentration from The University of Georgia.
Outside of work, Mr. Swaim spends much of his free time riding horses.
