Based in the DC office of Washington National Tax, Kim is the Tax Lead for KPMG’s Legal Operations Transformation Services practice in the United States. In this role, she advises clients on technology and process transformation for their legal functions, as well as tech, process, and data analytics improvements related to issues that hit tax and legal departments. Kim spends a lot of her time using tech and process to address Diversity & Inclusion issues, leveraging her experience as a member of KPMG’s Diversity Leadership Council. Kim is also the Tax Industry Lead for US International Corridors, advising clients on tax and operational implications of cross-border disruption from Tax Reform, BEPS, BEPS 2.0 and other developments. Her specific areas of planning and controversy include BEAT, cross border payments and withholding, and information reporting and transparency issues (e.g., under Country-by-Country reporting and Mandatory Disclosure Regimes). Kim is the host of a KPMG podcast series, “Destination Country X,” where she discusses policy and practical considerations related to cross-border tax and trade developments.

Prior to becoming KPMG’s LOTS Tax Lead, Kim served as KPMG’s national Inbound Tax Leader and national leader on FATCA for Non-Financial Industries, Country-by-Country reporting, and Mandatory Disclosure Regimes.  In those roles, Kim combined her technical international tax expertise with her tax controversy experience, to advise on the practical implications of the emerging transparency rules.

Kim was an adjunct professor with the Georgetown University LL.M. program for 11 years, teaching a mix of international tax classes, including international tax arbitrage and tax controversy workshop seminars. Kim is an instructor for the Practising Law Institute, teaching regular sessions on inbound taxation and BEAT. Kim regularly writes and speaks outside of the academic setting, as a featured speaker at the Tax Executives Institute and American Bar Association conferences (2011 through present), a member of the BNA Advisory Board, and a contributing author for BNA Bloomberg tax publications. 

Kim serves on the GW-IRS International Tax Conference Advisory Board and is a regular moderator and panelist for conference sessions.  A former chair of the ABA Tax Section Committee on Foreign Activities of U.S. Taxpayers, Kim led the Tax Section’s working groups on BEAT, FDII, and Cloud Taxation.
