Stephanie Zaide Senior Tax Accountant Chicago

Stephanie Zaide
Founder, Senior Tax Accountant

I’ve been a proud small business owner and entrepreneur since 2009. In all, I have almost two decades of business and operations-management experience, starting from when I worked as an assistant manager in retail in my teens.

After several years in accounting and financial services, I decided to specialize in income taxation, business analysis and client services, all of which fit my personality well. The complex problem solving, focus, and attention to detail that the challenging field of income tax preparation demands are the reason why I’m truly passionate about what I do, especially when handling multiple tasks and perspectives simultaneously. My clients find me easy going, approachable, and level-headed, even under high-pressure situations, because I find the challenge of solving problems for my clients exciting.

Beyond the office, I love spending time with my husband and kids, and traveling the world with them. And, as you’d find when you visit my office, I am also an avid fan of Snoopy!

Romy Avila
Senior Tax Consultant

My career started with a real estate sales and property management company, where I managed its rental properties and supported its brokerage division. I quickly grew interested in the income tax side of the field, so learned all I could.

After over two decades of experience, I decided to specialize in tax preparation involving businesses and rental properties, both of which are popularly considered the most complex in our field. Having had several years of knowledge and experience in the property management side of real estate enables us to approach tax returns strategically with precision.

Fun fact: I hold a degree in Civil Engineering and worked toward my MBA while living in the Philippines before moving to Chicago in the early ’90s. I’m a big Chicago sports fan, and a huge fan cars, especially Lexus!
