Kylie White

B Comm Acc, B Bus Admin CPA
Partner
Kylie started with Callaghans as a starry eyed young undergraduate while still at university in 2001.  Since that time, her enthusiasm for tax hasn’t waned (don’t invite her to dinner parties), and she is now well versed in all areas of Callaghans, most of which she has worked in at some stage over the years.  Kylie has also been fortunate to work closely with Callaghans’ long term staff and previous Partners who passed on knowledge honed from the 40+ years that Callaghans has been servicing the Canberra region. Kylie specialises in individual taxation including advice relating to investment properties, capital gains tax, salary packaging and aged care finance advice.  She loves being able to work personally with clients and see the rewards of conscientious record keeping and tax effective planning come to fruition.  Over the last few years Kylie has branched into aged care finance advice due to her own experience in this area and is dedicated to helping others understand the financial complexities of the aged care system.
