Founder and owner, Steve M. Windham, has been a CTEC-registered tax preparer since 2003, and an IRS/US Treasury Enrolled Agent since 2008.
As an Enrolled Agent, Steve is a federally-authorized tax practitioner with unlimited practice rights before the Internal Revenue Service. These are the same practice rights that a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and/or attorney would have before the Internal Revenue Service.
Steve also holds a Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Bank Secrecy Act E-file account that allows him to assist clients with filing an "FBAR" with the US Treasury for their non-US financial accounts, so that they will be compliant with US tax laws.
Steve holds two relevant graduate degrees, a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in International Taxation with certificates in U.S. Taxation and E-Commerce Taxation, as well as a Master of Business Administration (MBA).
Steve is a credentialed educator (Adult Education and Career Technical Education California teaching credentials), and he has taught various courses in accounting, bookkeeping, business math, financial crimes, QuickBooks (Online and Desktop), and taxation at the Adult School-level & Career Technical Education-level (Fairfield-Suisun Adult School), lower-division college level (Heald College) and university level (University of Idaho), as well as courses and workshops offered through Windham Solutions.
Since 2012, Steve has been engaged in international tax compliance for US expatriates abroad, as well as foreign workers and companies performing work in the United States, primarily with high net worth and high income individuals and businesses.
The team at Windham Solutions is uniquely positioned and qualified to help you achieve your accounting goals and bring you into compliance with the relevant tax laws, whether you are local or across the globe. Should you have any questions, please contact us.

Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.
Helvering v. Gregory, 69 F.2d 809, 810-11 (2d Cir. 1934).
Over and over again courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everybody does so, rich or poor; and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands: taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions. To demand more in the name of morals is mere cant.
