Marc Schwartz, J.D. CPA
Marc Schwartz is a dually licensed International Tax Attorney and CPA that serves as of Counsel to the Tax Law Offices of David W. Klasing as to the federal and offshore implications of international tax and estate planning and compliance. Also known as the “International tax nerd-in-chief”. He spends most days working with clients – U.S. and foreign individuals and businesses – providing practical strategic tax and business advice to help them successfully work across borders and achieve their short- and long-term goals.
Marc has lived and worked in the U.S. and abroad in both governmental and private sector roles. His diverse experience allows him to bring a practical global perspective to the individuals and businesses he serves. He began his career at a Big 6 accounting firm in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, where he built a strong foundation in federal, state, local, and international tax. He then transferred to one of the firm’s offices in Latin America where he continued to serve European, Asian, Latin American and U.S. clients.
After 10 years in large, global accounting firms, in 2005 Marc decided to branch out and start his own firm based on conversations with clients who wanted more flexibility in scope and pricing. He started by working with businesses in the “amorphous middle market” as well as start-ups and their entrepreneurial owners. Those relationships have grown, and the firm now works with clients of all sizes, both public and private, and individuals across the economic spectrum.
A geographically diverse client base has allowed Marc to gain significant experience with tax treaties, outbound/inbound planning, repatriation, foreign tax credits, real estate investments/FIRPTA, branch taxes and audit defense. In addition, Marc is a recognized author who contributes articles on international tax matters and legal issues to several trade publications.
Marc earned his BA from Colgate University, a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University and a law degree from Emory University. He is fluent in Spanish and can speak Italian and Portuguese nearly as well as a 4-year-old native speaker.
