I worked together with Rex in the State and Local Tax practice at KPMG, and since leaving the Firm have continued to seek out his advise and assistance with California tax matters. I was a partner on the east coast and never hesitated to reach out to Rex for help with a California matter. He was always very responsive and demonstrated a great knowledge of California taxation. The most recent issue he has worked on with me concerned California local business license taxes and the issue of how to apportion gross receipts for the license tax. This matter is still under appeal with the local jurisdiction. I would not hesitate to ask Rex for assistance the next time I need help with a California tax issue.
