Jessie Seaman, Esq., is a licensed Florida attorney and certified IRS Enrolled Agent. Jessie is joining Community Tax after spending over seven years at a leading national tax resolution firm. In her most recent position, she managed a fifty-person tax resolution department, consisting of attorneys, enrolled agents, and numerous support staff. In this role, she was responsible for the implementation of departmental procedures and policies, creation of new service offerings, along with all training and development. She has resolved thousands of tax resolution cases from the simplest stream-lined installment agreements to the most complicated business and revenue officer cases.
Jessie is a Florida Native and life-long resident. She grew up in Boca Raton and moved to Tampa in 2000 for her undergraduate studies. While attending the University of South Florida, Jessie studied abroad in Costa Rica and eventually graduated with a double major: B.A. in Philosophy & B.A. in Political Science. In 2006, she was offered a scholarship from Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, FL, where she graduated with a Juris Doctorate in 2009. During law school, Jessie interned with the ACLU, worked at Learn to Read, a local non-profit advocating for adult literacy, and was chosen by the Florida Coastal Academic Success Department to mentor incoming students on how to be successful in law school.
Jessie is a member of the Florida Bar, Tax Section, and Northeast Florida Enrolled Agent’s Society. She also enjoys teaching and has served as an adjunct professor teaching various courses including Business Law, State and Local Taxation, Contemporary Business Ethics, and an exam preparation class for the Enrolled Agents Examination. Jessie truly has a passion for tax controversy work, and found her passion in this niche field because it is ever-evolving, applicable to all, and in many cases unfairly enforced. As the daughter of small business owners, she is especially passionate about helping business owners understand and overcome their tax challenges. Jessie even helped form and operate a pro bono tax resolution clinic in North Florida to assist those tax payers who simply could not afford to hire professional representation for IRS and state tax issues.
Jessie enjoys all sorts of outdoor activities, including kayaking, golf, tennis…and the list goes on. She is ex-cited to explore all that Chicago has to offer! Please join me in welcoming our newest team member to Community Tax. We are excited to have her coming on board and look forward to her knowledge and experience as we continue our dynamic growth in the tax services industry.
