When it came time to choose a career, Jay Kim knew he wanted to work in a field where he could help people. Given his mathematical abilities, Jay decided to turn his passion into a career as a tax professional. Shortly after receiving his bachelor’s degree in Economics, Jay joined the Robert Hall & Associates team. Over the years, he demonstrated his technical expertise in the field of taxation and became a federally licensed tax practitioner, or Enrolled Agent. As an Enrolled Agent with Fellow status, Jay Kim is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service. This distinction allows Jay to help clients who have fallen behind on their taxes reduce their amount owed or negotiate an IRS installment agreement to get back on track. Outside of work, Jay enjoys watching sports, traveling, and spending quality time with his family.
