Amanda Manuel firmly believes in helping others to be the best version of themselves. Whether in the gym, on the trail, or in business and industry, encouraging others and helping them defeat the obstacles in their paths to success is what she strives for. As Samuel Johnson stated, “Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.” Amanda and the team at JCCS never want to see tax consequences or regulation and reporting requirements get in the way of a client’s dreams or ambitions. This is why she works to build relationships with open lines of communication, so she can use her expertise to break down those barriers, allowing her clients to thrive and continue doing what they do best.

Born and raised in central Montana, Amanda is grateful to work and play under its spacious sky. Her passion for fast-paced challenges in the great outdoors and summiting Montana’s mountain peaks matches her eagerness to attack the challenging projects and deadlines her clients often present. Using the team approach at JCCS, she often sees the most overwhelming undertaking simplify into achievable tasks that result in prompt satisfaction for both the client and the JCCS team. She recently worked with a client who had a large taxable event occur during the year. The team collaborated to prepare the auditing, accounting and tax planning pieces for numerous pass-through entities that all needed to come together in time to complete the individual tax return by the deadline. The client was able to remit the actual tax due, free from worry over significant interest and penalties that could have been charged if an extension was filed with an incomplete estimated payment.
