Donna Byrne is an attorney, Enrolled Agent, NTPI Fellow, and Oregon Licensed Tax Consultant. She first encountered tax issues in a course on forest economics at Oregon State University where she was a teen-aged forestry major. A few educational twists and turns brought her to Temple Law School in Philadelphia, where she discovered tax law for real. She joined the tax section of a large Philadelphia law firm, Morgan Lewis, but was quickly drafted to become an adjunct law professor, which resulted in a 23-year full-time teaching career.
She now holds the title of Emerita Professor of Law at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, MN, where she was a full-time law professor for a long time. (Emerita means they still liked her when she left.) Although originally hired to teach tax courses, she also taught Property, Estates and Trusts, and Food Law. She began preparing returns as a volunteer way back before computers.
Today, Donna owns Ash Creek Tax & Legal Services LLC in Monmouth, Oregon, where she has provided tax preparation, estate planning, and taxpayer representation since 2016. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
