Navigating Your Financial Life 
Through Effective Tax Strategies

When it comes to your financial life, it can be overwhelming to manage its various aspects, along with handling your many other life responsibilities. The occurrence of major life events or things beyond your control happen can really be impactful.   

By working with a financial and tax professional you trust, you will feel more confident about your financial future and have more time to focus on your passions in life.

I’m Sallie Mullins Thompson, a CPA/PFS, CFP, CDFA, and tax strategist, with over 2 decades of experience in the financial services profession. I help my clients with all elements of their financial lives, including transitions, such as the birth of a child/grandchild, divorce, wedding, and/or death of a family member.

My goal is to integrate the multiple components into a cohesive strategy that makes sense according to your needs and goals. Rather than working with several different firms, my clients are able to rely on one person for their financial guidance.

Since taxes are the biggest drag on you having the money you need, I quantify all tax ramifications for your financial decision-making. The result can be the enhancement of disposable income for savings, retirement, and legacy objectives.

My clients' best interests are always put first, while helping them to pursue their priorities, ambitions, and dreams. I work with families, business owners, and executive/professionals in the New York City and Washington, DC metropolitan areas.
