A conversation with Abby Liebergen

Feb 23, 2021
By: Steve Hewitt

As you know, we’re committed to serving the dealer industry, and we’ve been growing our team of industry professionals. Recently, I had a conversation with the newest member of our team, and I thought it would be great to share it with you.

We are happy to welcome Abby Liebergen, Senior Tax Manager, to our industry team.

Q: Abby, welcome to Wipfli! Tell us a little about yourself.

A: Thank you, Steve! I have been in a public accounting tax practice focusing on automotive dealerships since 2009. I have a passion for family businesses and helping clients work through the intricacies that occur in that business setting. I also enjoy presenting tax updates at various statewide speaking venues. I live in Freedom, Wisconsin with my husband, Dan, and we have two young sons who keep us very busy.

Q: What made you decide to join the Wipfli dealership industry team?

A: I was drawn to Wipfli’s dealership team because of their extensive knowledge, industry expertise and specialization. They have an extensive reach and array of automotive clients, and overall, they are a great group of individuals. Their personal focus on client relationships and client advisory services made Wipfli a clear choice of where I wanted to continue and expand my career.

Q: What experience do you bring to the Wipfli dealership industry team?

A: I have extensive experience in year-end accounting, tax planning and tax compliance related specifically to the automotive industry. I have worked with automotive, powersport and implement dealerships for the past 12 years and developed a streamlined process to calculate year-end LIFO inventory reserve adjustments to best suit my clients. I look forward to contributing to the latest insights and opportunities for our current and prospective clients.

Questions about tax planning or other topics?

We’re really excited to bring Abby’s experience to you — and we look forward to her contributions to our clients’ success. She will share insights from time to time, so if you have any questions or comments for Abby or about our Dealer Conversations blog in general, please feel free to leave feedback in the comment section below or reach out to us.
