Sydney R. Smith, MBA CAA, is President and Founder of Sirius Tax Group. She is the Lead Tax Advisor as well as a Business Strategist, Consultant, and Startup Specialist. With over 25 years of combined experience in management, business consultancy, and tax preparation, she launched the firm with a sincere desire to assist a diverse client base, particularly with interests in Small Business, Entrepreneurship, and International Business.
Sydney has worked in tax preparation for seven years. Her consultancy background makes her a natural, dealing with the field’s quantitative aspects, and advising her clients in their best interest. Her knowledge and expertise allow Sydney to incorporate the life changes and the simplicity or complexity of her clients into their tax situation. Having obtained the select and prestigious credential of Certified Acceptance Agent in 2013 -- a credential given by the IRS in conjunction with rigorous forensic studies outlined by the Department of Homeland Security – Sydney quickly developed a following of clients from around the globe in obtaining their Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs), resulting in the nickname, "The ITIN Lady." This affinity to help clients has made her a natural in her capacity as a business and marketing advisor, with an eye on small business, entrepreneurship, and women-owned businesses.
