Bart Patterson


The Tax Guy. When it comes to tax strategies, Bart leads the way for GoldenReserve® and our clients.

After playing college baseball at Eastern Michigan University, Bart took a job with Ernst & Young, LLP, focusing on tax planning. He eventually  made the move to a smaller firm, where he became a Partner, but he felt the constant grind of IRS deadlines pulling him further away from what was really important; providing his clients with proactive tax planning that could actually have a positive impact on their retirement. Bart made the decision to get out of public accounting and take his passion for tax planning and combine that with his love for helping people get the most out of their retirement. GoldenReserve® has provided him with the perfect opportunity to do both!

Bart’s clients will tell you that he’s great at taking complex tax and financial planning concepts and breaking them down, so they are easy to digest and understand.

Bart and his wife Ashley have two sons, Milo & Finn. Outside of the office, you’ll find Bart spending most of his time cheering alongside Ashley at one of his boys’ sporting events, and even jumping in to help coach when they need him.
