Todd’s journey to Tax came while still in Law School. While concurrently pursuing his MBA an introductory course in taxation inspired him to blend his business and law degrees. Today, as the Director of Specialty Tax Services, Todd leads the team on a wide gamut of complex out of the ordinary tax projects.
The speed at which the business climate, factual business changes and tax law changes necessitates a fresh perspective on how to strategically review and structure matters to be the most tax efficient. The Specialty Tax Services group provides strategy, counsel and project work for a wide-variety of national and international businesses.
He teams closely with the firm’s Partners providing counsel and execution on matters that extend beyond compliance. Cost Segregation Studies, R&D Tax Studies and M&E Studies only scratch the surface of our capabilities. Lurie’s Specialty Tax Services partners with all the other firms’ groups to offer unique tax savings and reduction strategies for businesses and their Federal, State and International income tax, indirect tax, controversy support and compensation concerns. This close collaboration provides not only coordinated, seamless service, but delivers true dollar cost savings.
When not delving into the nuances of tax law, Todd is never one to sit still. He takes on everything from boy scout camping and fishing to climbing Mt. Fuji or promoting a rock concert for his favorite charity. He’s also a self-described lover of politics, as well as military history.
