About John Schachter

John Schachter is an Enrolled Agent and member of the National and Massachusetts Associations of Enrolled Agents. He is expert in tax issues facing small businesses, individuals, investors, and multi-national taxpayers and is not afraid of the government. He has been a valued member of the strategic and management teams of clients' businesses, a non-profit board member, and a featured speaker at association meetings. He has worked with small businesses and startups since 1989. A 1986 graduate of Yale University, he enjoyed a career as a singing, dancing trumpet player in a variety of touring and recording bands. Managing several small businesses started John off with the real-life experience that makes him diligent, loyal and sympathetic to his clients, most of whom are entrepreneurs of one sort or another. In 1993 he started a bookkeeping service catering to commercial photographers in the Boston area. Graduate studies at Suffolk University helped him ground his commonsense approach to accounting and taxation in rigorous theory. He is constantly studying developments in his field. His practice serves hundreds of clients in various US states and some foreign countries.

John lives in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts with Karyn Wergland, their son, his daughter and their cat. His brother is the celebrated Puppetmaster Jake.

For fun, John enjoys: jazz and classical music, reading, crossword puzzles, movies, plays, and working out.
