EisnerAmper LLP is welcoming a new leader to one of its practice groups, which serves both public and private companies, high net worth individuals or families, and other special-purpose and operating entities.
On Wednesday, the accounting, tax and business advisory services firm announced Miri Forster as principal and co-leader for its Tax Controversy Practice. She will be based in the company’s Iselin office.
According to Eisner Amper, Forster has more than two decades of IRS practice, procedure and tax controversy experience, specializing in tax dispute resolution services for public and private businesses, partnerships and high net worth individuals. Previously a principal in the same segment at a Big Four firm, Forster also served as an attorney-advisor at the U.S. Tax Court.
“Miri is a wonderful addition to EisnerAmper’s Tax Controversy Practice,” said Tax Partner and Practice Leader Walter Pagano in a prepared statement. “She has an unmatched combination of high-level experience, a proven track record of successful engagements, and an impressive network within the tax controversy ecosystem.”
Forster advocates for clients before the IRS Examination and Appeals Divisions on complex tax issues – both domestic and international – and obtains private letter rulings from the IRL National Office, EisnerAmper said.
Her work with clients includes voluntary disclosure of inadvertent income, international information return, withholding and payroll tax compliance errors. EisnerAmper said Forster is also involved with resolving IRS account issues, securing penalty abatements and refunds, and advising on dispute resolution matters.
Forster is a licensed attorney in New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C., a member of the American Bar Association, and serves on the executive committee of the New Jersey Women’s Network-to-Network Consortium.
