WORK EXPERIENCE AT GREEN & COMPANY

In 1983, Mr. Green left a “big four” accounting firm, Ernst & Whinney, to establish his CPA firm, Green & Company CPAs. The first clients of this firm were money managers and brokers in the foreign exchange market (an international marketplace). From 1983 until the birth of the Internet in 1995, Green & Company was a boutique firm catering to high-net-worth entrepreneurs.

In 1997, Green & Company led the revolution for online traders by adopting the new trader tax laws passed in 1997. The remarkable growth in the use of the Internet required that the company change its business model from a private boutique CPA firm catering to a small, wealthy client base to one that accommodated traders all around the country. Green & Company has grown consistently with quality control to meet the needs of our growing clientele.

Mr. Green started GreenTraderTax.com in early 1997, when Congress changed the tax laws to create new tax benefits for traders (Section 475 MTM tax loss insurance). GreenTraderTax.com has been the leader in the trader tax market ever since. 

Mr. Green was born and raised on Long Island, New York. He lived and worked in Manhattan from 1977 until the end of 1999. He now lives with his wife in Westport, CT, and New York City.
