Our combined expertise, enhanced by Big 4 experience, allows us to excel in addressing our clients’ needs from both consulting and compliance perspectives, and maintain our high quality of service.

Former colleagues Brandon Vucen, CPA, CA, CPA (Illinois,) MST and Alex Manasuev LL.M. (Int’l Tax) NYU, have always shared a passion for and fascination with a complex and constantly changing subject: tax law. In particular, they could debate for hours the finer points of international taxes and tax laws and cross-border taxes and those tax laws. So when the opportunity arose, the two did not have to think twice about joining forces and going into business together to offer services in those highly specialized arenas, from headquarters in Toronto, Canada.

“Over the years, we have successfully addressed one sophisticated tax scenario after another,” observed international tax attorney Alex Manasuev, “while enjoying the challenge and the thrill of finding solutions for our respective clients. Thus our company tagline: ‘Unique solutions for a complex tax world.’ Commerce is global in today’s world, and small and medium size businesses typically have the same if not more complex tax issues that are faced by multinational corporations. Yet often they lack the resources of large corporations to address their tax needs in a timely and cost-efficient manner.”

Services offered by U.S. Tax IQ include U.S. tax planning, structuring and compliance with pre- and post-transaction support, such as due diligence and implementation. The company assists clients in resolving issues with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). One area of U.S. Tax IQ’s expertise is assisting professional athletes (such as NHL, NBA, MLS players) and coaches in addressing their tax planning and compliance needs.

“We are delighted to be able to focus on such special areas as U.S. taxation and cross-border tax solutions, in particular, for small to medium size businesses, high net worth individuals, as well as U.S. citizens and green card holders residing in Canada and outside the United States,” said U.S. Tax IQ principal Brandon Vucen. “Our combined expertise, enhanced by Big 4 experience, allows us to excel in addressing our clients’ needs from both consulting and compliance perspectives, and maintain our high quality of service.” “Plus,” Brandon added, “we provide our U.S. tax services and our cross-border services with a twist. Due to Alex’s Foreign Legal Consultant practice, we are able to offer attorney-client privilege and to address certain legal aspects on an as-needed basis.”

Both Alex Manasuev and Brandon Vucen were educated at some point in the United States, with Brandon Vucen earning a Multi-State Masters Diploma from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, then a Masters of Science Taxation from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. Alex Manasuev earned his LL.M in International Taxation as a Hauser Global Scholar at New York University School of Law. He is admitted to the State of New York Bar, The District of Columbia Bar. In addition, Alex Manasuev is admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court and is also a Foreign Legal Consultant authorized to practice U.S. law in Ontario (Law Society of Upper Canada, Ontario.) Between the two of them they speak five languages that include English, Russian, Serbian, German, and Spanish.

Alex Manasuev is widely published in the field of U.S. tax law, international tax, and transfer pricing. He also has been a featured speaker at various professional conferences. U.S. Tax IQ will have two offices, one in Oakville, Ontario and the other in Toronto, Ontario.
