Steven A. Hueffner, CPA

Senior Manager

Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening than talking.

Steve Hueffner is a senior tax manager with extensive experience in wealth planning and income tax services for high net worth families. His experience encompasses gift, estate, and generation-skipping transfer taxation, trust compliance, and charitable planning –specifically around private foundations and charitable trusts. Prior to joining Topel Forman, Steve worked for nine years in the Private Client Advisory group at an international accounting firm.

Steve relishes fatherhood with his two sons, Henry and Gus.  When not attending his sons’ activities or family events with wife, Rachel, you might be able to hear him coming down the road on his Harley.
