Harness Tax Adds Three New Advisor Partners and brings in a former Uber Exec to Accelerate Growth in 2022

Within 1 year of launch, Harness Tax brings in three more top tax teams onto its platform and taps a former Uber Executive to head up its fast-growing business aimed at serving technology employees, founders and investors.

New York, NY — November 17, 2021: Harness Tax, the tax branch of venture-backed fintech company Harness Wealth, announces Spritzer, Kaufman LLP, LexTax CPA, and Manteiga CPAs PLLC as their three new tax advisory teams. 

Additionally, Matt Powers, an early employee and former General Manager at Uber has joined the business to head Harness Tax. Matt has over a dozen years scaling complex, fast-growing businesses across diverse industries. In addition to Uber, Matt served as a senior executive at WeWork and started his career at Goldman Sachs. 

Harness Wealth launched in 2018 and its clients include employees, founders, and investors of major tech companies at every size, from early stage startups to post-IPO companies. They offer a holistic approach to financial, tax, and trust & estate planning advice, specifically geared to clients with substantial tech equity holdings. 

Harness Tax was launched in late 2020 based on client demand for more specialized, tech-forward tax services as part of Harness Wealth’s overall offering. 

Harness Tax has spent 2021 working with clients holding equity at companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amplitude, Better, Coinbase, Doordash, Squarespace, NextDoor, Stripe, ThredUp, UiPath, and Zoom given a booming IPO/SPAC market and the rise of complex tax issues across cryptocurrency, real estate, and relocation/work from home. 

With increased demand, there was a clear need for more experienced, specialized support from tax experts. “Harness Tax combines the best in human advice with a seamless digital experience,” says Founder and CEO, David Snider, “We have seen incredible traction with Harness Tax in our first tax season with the offering resonating strongly among our builder audience. The addition of these three teams and Matt as head will help propel our 2022 growth.” 

Harness Tax’s ability to appeal to and efficiently service tech clients is a huge advantage from a tax firm’s perspective. “We are excited to join the Harness team which is constantly innovating and enables us to deliver a best-in-class technology experience to our clients,” says Sandi Kaufman, Founding Partner, Spritzer, Kaufman & Co LLP.
