Jared Garfield works with individuals and businesses to find the best tax solutions for their situations. Whether it’s tax planning or tax controversy, Jared helps clients stay compliant with U.S. tax laws to avoid penalties and maximize their interests.

While Jared is working toward his law degree at the University of San Diego School of Law, he already has extensive experience in business and finance. He worked as an individual retirement account specialist, assisting customers with managing their financings and developing techniques to de-escalate challenging situations. Jared previously worked as an intern at the Taxpayers’ Rights Advocates Office in San Diego on the Tax Appeals Assistance Program. There, he conducted legal and factual research to help people with their California state tax appeals, drafted appeals briefs and client advice letters and communicated with opposing counsel to help clients resolve their cases.
While attending Brigham Young University in Idaho, Jared worked at the Research and Business Development Center, where his research work supported businesses and nonprofits looking to fund and operate a variety of entities, ranging from a children’s museum to a medical center. He also served as a teaching assistant in microeconomics.
