Baker Tilly Names Lynette Stolarzyk Specialty Tax Leader

CHICAGO (May 2, 2019) – Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) announces Principal Lynette Stolarzyk, J.D., LL.M., will lead the firm’s new specialty tax group.

In her new role, Stolarzyk will be responsible for driving growth and expanding the capabilities of Baker Tilly’s specialty tax group which brings together the practices of international tax, IRS practice and procedures, methods and credits, and state and local tax.

“We are pleased to have Lynette lead this specialty tax function for our firm and for our clients,” Joseph C. O’Neill, Baker Tilly managing partner of tax services, said. “Bringing together these technically complex practice areas within a firmwide specialty tax group provides our clients with distinctive, value-added tax services, helping them solve complex business problems and interpret evolving rules and regulations.”

Stolarzyk has extensive experience providing tax consulting and compliance services for public and private companies, as well as historic experience in academia as a senior lecturer and director of professional programs in accounting at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Over the last 20 years she has sat on both sides of the table, as an advisor and as a client, which gives her a unique perspective on how specialty tax services can address clients’ current needs and shape future opportunities. Last year, she was named to Finance and Commerce’s Top Women in Finance and Minnesota Business Magazine’s Women Who Lead.

“Our clients face complex tax issues that require specialized and multi-faceted solutions,” Stolarzyk said. “I am excited to take on this new role to further enhance the innovative and comprehensive tax services we bring to our clients, helping them respond to changing legislation and positioning them to be successful in the future and to continue helping our clients protect and enhance their value.”
