At the start of his public accounting career, Jason Skrinak’s main responsibility was assembling and preparing corporate tax returns, but he soon realized that he was more interested in scrutinizing returns that had already been filed. Jason’s investigative instinct for examining past tax exposure and adjusting tax positions accordingly led to his specialization in state and local taxation.
Today, Jason leads RKL’s State and Local Tax (SALT) Practice and has built a reputation over his two decades in public accounting as a highly regarded tax consultant. Jason applies his deep expertise to identify and pursue tax-savings opportunities for clients, ensure their compliance across state and municipal borders and resolve controversies they may have with taxing authorities.
Thanks to the strong connections he developed throughout this career with legislators and state tax officials, Jason is often called to provide expert financial testimony at legislative hearings on a variety of state tax and finance issues. He also leverages these working relationships to advocate for clients and convey the business impact of certain policies. This unique combination of expertise and access allows Jason to add value to RKL’s engagements and produce demonstrable savings for the firm’s clients.
“I bring the taxpayer perspective to my review of tax policy to help improve the business climate in Pennsylvania.”
Jason resides in Lower Paxton with his wife and two children and enjoys attending sporting events, golfing and spending time with his family.
