Staying current with client events helps Jon advise in real time, before major decisions are made that can impact a client’s cash flow or tax liability. He listens for opportunities to add value.

Jon Nelson joined Walter Shuffain in 2015 as a staff accountant and quickly worked his way up to manager in 2020. He provides audit, tax, and consulting expertise to clients in a variety of industries, with a primary focus in real estate and private equity. Jon works directly with a handful of the firm’s larger clients, focusing on providing an exception level of client service.
