If there’s one thing Bill Harbison knows, it’s construction. He started by installing HVAC after high school, spent years in construction management, and smoothly transitioned to tax consulting with a construction focus. Bill attributes part of his success to the sheer volume of Energy Studies he’s overseen in the last decade – he’s seen every scenario, addressed every nuance, and left no dollar behind. But more than that, Bill believes in a client-centric approach, striving to create the positive service experiences that taxpayers – and tax professionals — deserve.
