A rare opportunity to see the personal side of Tax

In a pandemic, where we are forced into isolation, Len gives us a rare opportunity to connect - through shared experiences. Given the nature of our practice, what we do and how much fun we have doing it, is often misunderstood. Len gives us a unique glimpse into the personal stories of some of the most respectable Tax practitioners in America to show us what a down to earth, humorous, and approachable bunch of characters they are. The conversations are fun, relatable and nostalgic at times - a podcast must!
