Tram Le – State and Local Tax Senior Manager

Tram Le is a CPA and licensed attorney specializing in tax strategies for growing multistate businesses. She works closely with clients in all aspects of state and local tax (SALT) issues and assists businesses in responding to notices and negotiating with state and local jurisdictions.

Tram serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas at Arlington, where she teaches highly technical SALT topics to graduate level students. She has several years of government financial and forensic auditing experience from work in the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

She also implemented forensic audit and investigation procedures, delivered government briefings and analyzed the tax law impact of proposed policy changes.

Prior to her government work, Tram specialized in SALT work with a regional firm in the Denver-metro area, where she worked with Judy Vorndran researching and managing multistate tax issues for businesses.
