About Paulina Szuszkiewicz:

Paulina Szuszkiewicz (shoe-shke-vich) is a Tax Reduction Adviser and the co-founder of SmartCloud CPA, a CPA firm specializing in tax reduction planning. An average client working with Paulina can expect to save approx. $37,000 annually in taxes.

Tax reduction planning has nothing to do with tax preparation, financial planning, magic, voodoo, or Al Capone-esque tax evasion (though she is a Chicago native). It’s much less exciting and involves a lot of tax law and IRS compliance – but definitely worth learning more about.

Apart from work, Paulina loves to paint and has recently discovered a new technique called acrylic pouring. She has a dog that weighs 120lbs and recently moved from Chicago to Las Vegas, where she’s happily forgetting what rain and snow look like.
