Michelle Rizzo

Manager-International Corporate Tax

Michelle is a CPA and International Corporate Tax Manager at The Wolf Group, specializing in assisting entrepreneurs and 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, Qualified Small Business Stock (QSBS), and Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporations (IC-DISC).

In addition, Michelle has been heavily involved in providing guidance and training related to the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (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 the TCJA, Michelle advises business owners on options 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.

In her role at The Wolf Group, Michelle works with middle-market entities, small businesses, and entrepreneurs, including both outbound and inbound clients.

When not in the office, Michelle enjoys outdoor activities, including hiking with her dog.
