Meet Liz Patterson
Liz is known at Van Osdol as a tax expert and is valued for her ability to explain tax implications to our clients.
Liz has an accounting background and prior to joining Van Osdol, she practiced at an aviation firm where she assisted clients with their aviation tax planning. In 2012, she deepened her tax expertise while working at H&R Block in their Tax Institute–providing information and analysis on real-world implications of tax policy and proposals to individuals and tax preparers.
Today, Liz spends most of her time counseling Van Osdol clients on matters including business formation, not-for-profit formation, tax policy, and estate planning. In addition, she assists clients with choice of entity decisions, contract review, gift and tax planning issues including preparation of Wills and Trusts, and tax controversies with the IRS. Liz also prepares federal and state individual, estate, gift, corporate, and generation-skipping tax returns as well as fiduciary income tax returns for estates and trusts.

After getting her Masters, she decided to pursue a law degree with a focus in Tax and Business Law. Liz attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law and received her Masters of Law in Taxation in December of 2010.
