about chris

Chris Wittich started his career with Boyum Barenscheer in 2007 as an intern and became a partner in 2020.  He completed his MBT degree from the University of Minnesota and became a licensed CPA as he started his career.  He took a primary role in the firm’s response to the COVID legislation helping clients with PPP and ERC.  He works with primarily the salon industry helping empower business owners so they can understand their business and thrive on their own terms.

His passion for educating others is evident through the webinars and blogs posted on the firm’s website.  He carries that devotion into volunteering as he has been a tax season volunteer with Prepare + Prosper every year since 2001 when he was in 10th grade.

Chris is a proud 2014 AICPA Leadership Academy graduate and the 2015 MNCPA Tax Conference chair.  He has spoken at the AICPA Engage Conference, the AICPA National Tax Conference, and the MNCPA Tax Conference on a variety of technical tax and practice management topics. From 2019-2022 he served on the AICPA’s Tax Practice Management Committee.  From 2019-2023 he served on the AICPA’s task force to revise the Statements on Standards for Tax Services.  In 2022 Chris started serving on the AICPA’s Tax Executive Committee, the AICPA’s Tax Practice Resiliency Task Force, and the Filing Flexibility Task Force.

Chris grew up in Eden Prairie, Minnesota but now lives in Eagan with his wife, daughter, and cat.  In his spare time, Chris is busy playing golf or Ultimate Frisbee.  His nickname, Ravenous Tiger, dates back to his days in drumline in high school.

Free is a good price.
