Principal


Fredrik D Whitley

Fredrik D Whitley
Attorney at Law, Enrolled Agent

As the Principal at ACE TAX, Fredrik’s goal for every tax client is to help them understand how their tax returns can be a blueprint for making positive financial decisions going forward.  He firmly believes that the true value in having a professional prepare your tax return is in the advice and analysis that can come with it.  Anyone can plug in the numbers, but Fredrik can analyze what those numbers mean to you.

Fredrik’s experience goes well beyond your average tax professional.  He brings over twenty years of relevant tax, estate, and financial experience.  In addition to his tax work as an Enrolled Agent, Fredrik is a practicing Attorney in the areas of Estate Planning and Probate.  He also spent a dozen years managing one of California’s largest Deferred Compensation retirement plans.  The combination of these disciplines gives him a unique holistic view of the three main factors that can play into your tax return – finance, estate, and tax.

On the personal side, Fredrik is originally from Sweden and has put down roots in the Inland Empire with his wife Sarah and two children.  They have lived in the Redlands area for about the last twenty years.  He is an aspiring golfer, collector of California wine, and continually on the hunt for the world’s best taco.
