Neal is the founder and sole proprietor of Wallace Consulting, LLC- specializing in small business services and individual tax preparation. As a tax professional, Neal has helped individuals, families, businesses, and nonprofit organizations navigate the world of tax law- often helping generations of families and successors to business clients. His years of experience and continuous training enable him to solve complex tax issues and to offer tax planning services.
Neal earned his Bachelor’s in Accounting in 1998 and his CPA in 2003. Prior to starting his own firm, Neal began his career at some of the nation’s top accounting firms, including BKD, LLP and McGladrey & Pullen LLP.
He enjoyed his work at these firms but saw a need for small business and individual clients to receive expert service at a reasonable rate. Thus, Wallace Consulting was established. Over the years, Neal has acquired several firms with current locations settled in Merrillville, IN, Gary, IN, and Crete, IL.
Professionally, Neal enjoys working directly with his clients, the challenge of identifying and solving problems and helping his staff grow into their full potential. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP).
Personally, he is passionate about sports- you may spot Saints or LSU gear in his office. Neal is a history buff and enjoys learning more about how society has developed. He also enjoys traveling- especially to a tropical location or to his home state of Louisiana.
