I love meeting and working with clients to help deliver value and tax savings. It’s nice to relieve them of stress in an area that most people haven’t experienced before.

Brian Ess is a Supervisor specializing in the state and local tax niche. His experience includes working with sales tax, income tax credits and incentives in all industries.

Before joining Henry+Horne in 2019, Brian worked for a Big Four firm and national firm in Kansas City. He received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Southern Illinois University and attended law school at the University of Missouri.

When he’s not working, you can find Brian walking his mini Aussie, Tyson, traveling, or doing “all things sports.” If he wasn’t a tax supervisor, he would like to be an astrophysicist.
