About Us:

Tyler Buck, PhD

Tyler Buck, president of Salem Tax & Financial, Inc., is adept at combining her knowledge of financial services along with her experience as a tax consultant and business accountant.  She started her career in Britain as a financial advisor with an internationl bank, specializing in retirement, investment, and succession plans for business owners.

In the nineties Tyler moved to Massachusetts and joined the corporate tax department of a British-American company.  After a company merger she was offered a position as the Senior Tax Accountant for the "Financial Times" in NYC.  Instead she remained in New England as the CFO of a tax software firm.  Early this century Tyler joined her former tax instructor as co-owner of Salem Tax & Financial.

Tyler is particularly expert in dealing with issues of New Hampshire residents who work in Massachusetts and other states, as well as those resident abroad. As a testament to the service and value thay receive, many of her clients who have moved to other states continue to return to her for tax preparation and financial advice. Her knowledge and expertise allows her to utilize tax law  to it;s fullest extent, resulting in the taxpayer paying the least amount of tax allowed by law.

Richard L. Travaglino, EA, MST

Rich Travaglino, company founder, was a graduate of Suffolk University in Boston, where he earned a Masters of Science in taxation (MST), and for a time also taught courses in taxation.  Rich's other professional designation is Enrolled Agent (EA).

An Enrolled Agent is a tax specialist who is granted a license by the IRS to practice and represent clients before the IRS. If you have a current or a past problem, an Enrolled Agent can represent you so that you don;t have to deal directly with the IRS yourself.  The license is granted after passing a two-day examination in taxation administered by the IRS. To maintain this professional status, Enrolled Agents must keep up with changing tax laws, and earn numerous continuing education credits each year.

Rich started his tax career in Massachusetts and came to Salem, New Hampshire in the early 1990's to work with the more complicated situations that apply to "multi-state" tax filers.
