Kim Reeder joins KPMG as partner in state and local tax

KPMG LLP, the audit, tax, and advisory firm, announced that Kim Reeder, a leading practitioner with significant experience in state tax issues, is joining the U.S. firm as a partner in its state and local tax (SALT) practice. Reeder, based in the firm's Silicon Valley office, will initially be part of KPMG's Washington National Tax practice.

Prior to joining KPMG, Reeder was a tax partner at Baker & McKenzie LLP, where she assisted clients with state tax controversies at the protest, appeals, and settlement stages and counseled clients on corporate restructurings and reorganizations, transfer pricing, apportionment issues, and state tax amnesties and voluntary disclosure programs. She also was previously counsel at McDermott, Will and Emery, where she provided state tax controversy and planning services.

In her new role, Reeder will focus on assisting the firm's Western area clients with complex state income and franchise tax matters and helping build the state tax advocacy and controversy practices in the Bay area.

"We're extremely pleased that Kim has chosen to join KPMG," said Timothy Gillis, national partner in charge of KPMG's SALT practice. "Her extensive experience with California and multistate tax issues and her years of research on key state and local issues will allow her to bring a well-informed perspective to our clients on their state and local tax matters."

"A hallmark of KPMG's SALT practice is delivering outstanding client service through its technical excellence and industry knowledge," said Reeder. "I look forward to working with this great group of professionals to help clients in the Western area better define the role of tax in their business decision making."

Reeder holds a J.D., with honors, from the University of North Carolina School of Law and an M.P.P. in public policy from Duke University's Sanford Institute of Public Policy. She earned a B.A. in political science from Yale University.
