The Wolf Group is excited to welcome Michelle Rizzo, CPA, MBA, to the firm!

Michelle specializes in assisting entrepreneurs and expanding multinational businesses with their international tax planning and tax preparation needs.

She regularly advises clients on the tax-efficient structuring of their businesses (whether inbound to or outbound from the U.S.), proper reporting of global income and assets, and tax savings opportunities.   Specific areas include Subpart F, Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI), Foreign-Derived Intangible Income (FDII), foreign tax credits, and Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporations (IC-DISC).

In addition, Michelle has been heavily involved in providing guidance and training related to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), including advice related to the §965 Repatriation Tax, FDII, and GILTI provisions.

Because many businesses are no longer tax-efficient due to changes brought about by TCJA, Michelle is advising business owners on GILTI planning steps they can take now, during 2018, to reconfigure their businesses to become efficient under the new tax laws.

Michelle has 15 years of experience in public accounting and financial services, with corporate tax experience in a variety of industries, such as technology, professional services, life sciences, and manufacturing.

She holds a BA in Business Administration from Delaware Valley University and an MBA from LaSalle University, and she anticipates receiving a Master of Studies in Law in Taxation from New York University in the spring of 2020.
