Angelo Poletis, CPA


“If you can’t change circumstances, change your perspective.”

Angelo Poletis

When a client that was new to the firm called with a “quick question” about selling their business, Angelo and the tax team were able to offer a different structure to defer and potentially reduce income taxes for both the seller and the buyer. Recognizing that people approach issues from different perspectives, worked in the client’s favor.
