Hylton joins from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) where he spent 30 years culminating in his appointment as commissioner of the small business and self-employed division.
He has held several prominent positions at the IRS, including serving as deputy of the criminal investigation division and as CI’s head of international operations.
He will use his years of experience at the IRS to assist the group’s clients as an ambassador for US small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) and help others become tax compliant.
Hylton said: “I’m incredibly excited to leverage my expertise acquired at the IRS to help America’s small businesses understand what tax incentives are available to them while ensuring our team approaches our client work with an eye towards compliance and the agency’s current practices.”
He will also join the leadership team of alliantNational where he will use his tax enforcement experience to advise clients on tax planning and controversy matters ranging from criminal tax matters, cryptocurrency compliance, international taxation, as well as audit defense.
Prior to being appointed as an agency commissioner, he also served for several years as both the deputy chief and the executive director of international operations for the IRS criminal investigation division.
