About Ellis

We solve significant issues

• 20 million private businesses pay more tax than the law requires.
• Private businesses pay more tax at higher rates then the Global 500.

Those are significant impediments to optimal performance. The problem is obvious, their tax professionals are better than yours.

Find the evidence on our web site.

The distribution of capabilities you will find there applies to any profession from home run hitters to CEO’s. That’s a great reason for everyone in a position of significant responsibility to gather around him or her the best advisers he/she can find. A great resource is Robert Caro’s 1st book on Lyndon Johnson, who miraculously rose from extreme poverty to President of the United States by applying that advice to his own inner circle.

If you’re a CEO tasked with making your business work better, we should be in each other’s network. I have extensive experience from a Big a 5 accounting firm & 2 C suite positions at Global 500 firms to private practice in a tax strategy firm that focuses on making businesses work better in a variety of ways. Plus top level intellect.
Let’s connect.

We realize you’re working with your current tax & accounting professionals. Everyone is, but that doesn’t make it a good idea. The link above indicates it’s probably not.


Every dollar we save drops straight to the bottom line as another dollar of cash, profits, working capital & competitive advantage. We save more than we cost. Easily measured, concrete results. You can measure it yourself.

We don’t have a funnel vision on tax strategy. We devote much of our professional activities to business structures & organization, intellectual properties, interstate taxation, international taxation & advisory services.  

Right Brained Genius.  

I’m a right brained genius that can see & understand things most people don’t even see. The tax &  accounting results that this can produce are far beyond what the typical tax & accounting firm can provide.

Geniuses are noted for superior cognitive ability; creativity & innovation; for making connections between objects that most of us wouldn’t think of connecting; for keeping everything they know, suspect, have seen or read hovering in the back of their brain to call on when appropriate; and combining seemingly disparate facts into remarkable solutions. In the process of doing that, geniuses inevitably think abstractly and apply abstractions—that is, they/we become smarter. The solutions to complex problems sometimes appear instantly in the genius mind before the problem is fully defined.

“They display exceptional intellectual ability, creative productivity and originality, that is associated with the achievement of new advances in a domain of knowledge. Despite the presence of scholars in many subjects throughout history, many geniuses have shown high achievements in only a single kind of activity.” Wikipedia.

The theory behind right-brained or left-brained means one side of their brain is dominant. If you’re mostly analytical and methodical in your thinking, you’re said to be left-brained. If you tend to be more creative or artistic, you’re thought to be right-brained. The right hemisphere is associated with creativity, emotion and intuition. Intuition is very powerful in the hands of a genius level IQ.  That’s me.

Background Story.

The team I led I introduced the mag stripe card & digital transactions to the marketplace and jump-started the digital revolution that is still shaking the world today. We were so successful, we couldn’t handle the response. This was back in the batch processing and nightly file maintenance days. The volume was just too much, so we hired 25 coders & systems analysts to develop a system that processed transactions in real time. But a year later when we ran the first test, it took longer to run than the old fashioned file maintenance. To make a long story short, that resulted in restructuring the company and abandoning its leadership role up in technology. None of this even made headlines. It was so far off the charts they didn’t know how to report it.

Another background story.

After losing a race or Congress, I found myself on the banks of the Colorado River so I started my practice there. The internet was just becoming a thing, so I took advantage and built a national practice. Today we have clients in 46 states and 7 countries. All fueled by satisfied clients.
