Tax Dirty to Me
Down with IRC, yeah you know me

1st & 3rd Tuesdays of every month

9am - 10:30 am PT

Join us at the Roundtable for small tax firm owners and professionals – where challenges meet solutions head-on. We face an ever-evolving landscape of tax complexities and firm management hurdles. This is your chance to sit with fellow 'Tax Pros in the Know', share pain points, and collaboratively unearth actionable solutions. Dive into spirited discussions on emerging tax issues, technology trends, and staffing strategies. Come to the table not just to talk, but to transform – because together, we can turn obstacles into opportunities.

Meet your host: Mary McDonald

Mary’s first, and by far favorite, award ever was the Queenly Award given to her at the end of a theatre class she took in kindergarten. Since that day, she has gone through life with a tiara, if not on her head, at least close to hand. She considers herself a poster child for the Your-Career-Is-Not-Set-In-Stone set
and knows sometimes you must go the long way ‘round in order to get to where you are supposed to be.


A CPA as a second/third/fourth/whatever career, Mary focuses on making sure her individual clients feel understood and represented. Her background as an elementary school teacher allows her to see the glazing over of eyes and undertake new approaches. She believes in celebrating wins and small victories
and is amazingly good at finding the silver linings. A core value she holds is people need connection and community. She is truly excited to be a part of RoundTable Labs where she can live that value and watch others thrive.
