Amie Kuntz is a self-described “normalish 30-something girl” from Des Moines, Iowa, who spends a good portion of her free time voluntarily thinking about tax. While some may tell her to “get a life,” Amie has made tax part of her life by blogging about her experiences and sharing her knowledge of business, insights on tax and updates on the tax law on her blog Living the Tax Life. She’s dabbled in most areas of the tax code during her 12-year career in tax, working in both public accounting and private company roles.
