Chris Pounds is the Vice-President of DSTax.

Chris co-founded DSTax in 2011 with Scott and worked with him to build DSTax into what it is today. Chris is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day delivery of consulting projects and compliance activities.

Chris has spent most of his career working with sales and use taxes. He began his career preparing sales and use tax returns for clients at a compliance boutique firm before joining the outsourcing practice of a Big 4 accounting firm where he first worked with Scott. Chris transferred to the firm’s SALT group a couple of years later to provide more value-added services to his clients. Chris left public accounting to become the sales tax manager at a large construction contracting firm, but quickly returned to consulting to provide sales and use tax services with a heavy focus on sales tax automation.
