For Mike Eby, serving his clients starts by understanding what drives their personal and business decisions. This curiosity and drive for connection is what initially drew him to the accounting field and keeps him inspired more than a decade later. Tax law and policy is full of specific provisions and caveats, but Mike knows that these details are meaningless until he can contextualize them into his clients’ unique circumstances.
As a Partner in RKL’s Tax Services Group, Mike takes an in-depth approach to helping privately held businesses in industries such as manufacturing, construction, retail and real estate implement tax strategies that achieve their unique goals and objectives. With broad expertise on federal, state and local regulations, Mike advises his clients on the most advantageous positions across the full spectrum of taxation.
In an era of generational transition and corporate consolidation, Mike is often consulted on business restructuring and acquisitions with the goal of developing an approach that is both profitable and efficient. He also has deep experience representing and advising clients in tax controversies, including taxing jurisdiction audits, state administrative board hearings and tax compromise negotiations.
Beyond technical skills, Mike strives to be someone his clients can confide in and considers the highest compliment to be when a business owner considers him an extension of the team.
“I’m inspired by the business leaders I’ve served over the years and how they conduct business in a way that uplifts others, whether it is their employees, customers or the community at large.”
Mike and his wife reside in Enola, PA with their daughters. He enjoys spending time with family, volunteering at his church and playing sports.
