Nicole LaCava

Sr. Manager, International Corporate Tax

Nikki is a CPA and Senior Manager at The Wolf Group, who specializes in assisting entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals, and multinational businesses with their international tax planning and tax preparation needs.

She regularly advises clients on tax-efficient structuring of international transactions, proper reporting of global income and assets, effective use of tax treaties, and ways to reduce worldwide tax burdens.

Specific focus areas include tax concepts pertaining to Controlled Foreign Corporations (CFCs) and other foreign entities, such as attribution matters, Subpart F income, and exceptions, Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI), Earnings and Profits (E&P) calculations, §962 elections, Previously Taxed Earnings & Profits (PTEP) ordering and calculations, and §986(c) foreign currency gain/loss calculations with regard to PTEP.

In addition, Nikki advises high-net-worth individuals with complex, cross-border issues or foreign asset reporting needs. In this capacity, she analyzes foreign pensions, grantor trusts, non-grantor trusts, business interests, and other assets to determine the proper US reporting requirements and helps clients navigate the IRS’s Voluntary Disclosure, Streamlined, and other Amnesty programs.

Before joining The Wolf Group in 2022, Nikki had nearly a decade of experience in public accounting and tax advisory, including 7 years supporting ultra-high-net-worth individuals as part of Goldman Sachs Ayco Personal Financial Management’s international tax division.

When not in the office, Nikki enjoys outdoor activities and spending time with family and friends.
