Kelly Phillips Erb
Years ago, Kelly Phillips Erb found herself sitting in law school in Moot Court wearing an oversized itchy blue suit. It was a horrible experience. In a desperate attempt to avoid anything like that in the future, she enrolled in a tax course and loved it. So she signed up for another. Before Kelly knew it, in addition to her JD, she earned an LL.M Taxation. While at law school, Kelly interned at the estates attorney division of the IRS. At the IRS, she participated in the review and audit of federal estate tax returns. At one such audit, opposing counsel read her report, looked at his file and said, "Gentlemen, she’s exactly right." Kelly nearly fainted. It was a short jump from there to practicing, teaching, writing and breathing tax. Just like that, Taxgirl® was born.
