Weaver recruits Shane Stewart from Ryan to be Director-in-charge of Indirect Tax and SALT
Shane Stewart has joined Weaver as the director-in-charge of indirect tax and state and local tax (SALT) services. He provides SALT services across the firm and is based out of the Dallas office.
Stewart focuses on providing multistate indirect tax services, including sales tax, use tax, gross receipts tax, fuels/excise tax, business/occupations tax, and statutory tax credits and negotiated tax incentives. “Shane’s extensive experience in SALT services will help Weaver to continue growing our practice throughout Texas and the United States,” said Mike Goral, partner-in-charge of state and local tax services.
Stewart brings years of experience in state and local tax matters involving evaluating sales and transaction tax compliance functions for clients operating in Texas, as well as in multiple jurisdictions. He has extensive knowledge in various industries including manufacturing, oil and gas, telecommunications, commercial airlines, government contractors, construction, retail, financial services and technology.
Most recently, Stewart worked at Ryan as a manager of sales and use tax. He led a team responsible for the recovery of overpaid taxes, developed transaction tax savings opportunities, and helped build relationships to drive firm growth.
“Shane’s depth of knowledge and experience in this area make him a good fit for Weaver,” said, Tommy Lawler, Weaver’s managing partner and CEO. “We know that our clients will significantly benefit from having him on our team.”
