Jessie Seaman, Esq. & EA
Role at Community Tax
Jessie Seaman is a licensed Florida attorney and IRS Enrolled Agent. Jessie brings over 10 years of state and federal tax controversy resolution and representation to Community Tax clients. Jessie has a passion for tax controversy work 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 is a Florida Native, growing up Boca Raton and moving 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 and 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, National Association of Enrolled Agents, and National Tax Practice Institute Fellowship candidate. She is a leading voice within the tax resolution community. Most recently she was asked to be a lead Instructor at both the Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale national conferences for NAEA. She has also 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 helped form and operate a pro bono tax resolution clinic in North Florida to assist taxpayers who simply could not afford to hire professional representation for IRS and state tax issues.
Prior to joining Community Tax three years ago, she spent over seven years with a leading national tax resolution firm. She has overseen tens of thousands of tax resolution cases, from the simplest financial privacy plans to the most complex business cases.
