TITLE: Director of International Tax
LOCATION: Fairfax (Metro DC)
With nearly three decades of experience – much of it preparing tax returns for nonresident aliens, U.S. residents that are eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, and U.S. residents who control foreign corporations – Lynn Eller is the perfect choice to lead the firm’s international tax practice. Additionally, she pulls on her deep expertise of complex global tax issues to advise businesses expanding abroad as a program partner for the Virginia Leaders in Export Trade. She serves as a technical resource for international tax issues and presents seminars for her peers within PBMares.
Her knowledge of owner-managed businesses’ tax needs and hands-on approach to her work makes her a valued asset to her clients in a variety of industries, including professional services, real estate, healthcare, and manufacturing. She is particularly adept at helping business owners realize federal and state tax credits and incentives such as the research and development credit, foreign-derived intangible income deduction, and numerous state incentives.
She holds an Advanced Professional Certificate in International Taxation (APCIT) designated by the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD) which furthered her expertise in international tax from both a domestic and worldwide perspective. She also earned the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) credential, indicating her extensive expertise in assessing the tax implications of investments, retirement plans, insurance, and estate planning.
When not helping entrepreneurs expand their businesses globally, she loves traveling. In fact, she lived in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia for stints during her younger years. When COVID grounded her stateside, she focused her creativity on baking and bread making and looks forward to traveling to take classes and meet bakers in other countries. Meanwhile, she enjoys spending time with her extended family, including her two daughters, a fashion buyer, and a veterinarian.
