Baltimore, Md. – Ellin & Tucker, the Baltimore-based public accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that Beverly Jenkins, E.A., has joined the firm as a tax principal. In her new role, Jenkins will help expand Ellin & Tucker’s notable real estate practice, which includes developers, property management firms and real estate investors. Jenkins brings to Ellin & Tucker more than 20 years of tax experience and extensive knowledge in the real estate industry, including two decades of practicing taxation at Ernst & Young.
“Our clients have sophisticated tax planning and compliance needs, and staying deeply entrenched in our clients’ industries is key to our ability to meet those needs,” said Ed Brake, managing director at Ellin & Tucker. “Bev’s unique skills and unmatched experience in real estate will help us provide an even more effective level of service and industry expertise to our clients.”
Jenkins is an expert in tax reporting, compliance and management advisory services for real estate firms, business owners and investors, as well as corporate partnerships. As Ellin & Tucker’s most recently appointed principal, Jenkins will leverage both her tax expertise and her elite status as an enrolled agent (E.A.) to support a diverse base of real estate clients.
Jenkins earned her E.A. status nearly 20 years ago. It is the highest credential the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) awards and it gives her the ability to represent taxpayers before the IRS and with unlimited practice rights. As defined by the IRS, this means Jenkins is unrestricted as to which taxpayers she can represent, what types of tax matters she can handle and which IRS offices she can represent clients before.
Prior to her current role at Ellin & Tucker, Jenkins was senior tax manager at Ernst & Young, where she developed a comprehensive understanding of businesses’ needs by leading tax projects for clients from beginning to end.
Jenkins earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Towson University, and received her master’s of taxation from University of Baltimore.
