Since 1998, McMillian & Associates has help small businesses to Fortune 500 companies capture State & Federal Tax Credits. McMillian & Associates (MCA) was started with a simple idea to help businesses. We’re passionate about finding more for companies by capturing every tax credit opportunity. We worked with over 1,000 companies across the country spanning all major industries.
Officially, I’ve been with McMillian & Associates (MCA) since 2002, but unofficially since the company started in 1998. Currently, I am the second-generation leader and President. My role is to steward the growth and purpose of MCA. I’ve been helping companies capture tax credits for more than 12 years.
I grew up with MCA and learned the way to do business from the ground up. I have learned and performed all of the roles of MCA. I love helping companies create a culture and process around maximizing tax credits. I love to help companies minimize tax credits by thinking intentionally with organization leaders, developing best practices, and creating smart systems.
My passion is to create new opportunities for companies. The tax credits we find can help companies invest into their culture and community, fuel growth, fund new equipment and technology, increase ROI on decisions, lower taxes, and much more.
My wife and I are new parents, so our daughter, Maddy, is at the top of our talking list! On the weekends, I'm always with my family spending time together after church, hiking, sharing a meal together, or watching a movie.
I love volunteering at my church, Buckhead Church, and
our family loves Lighthouse Family Retreat. The organization provides families dealing with childhood cancer with a beach trip, creating an environment to experience love, making lasting memories together.
