Sarah Thacker, born and raised in Austin, TX, is a dedicated attorney known for her expertise in tax law and her compassionate approach to helping clients through difficult times. She holds a BA in English from UNC-CH, a JD from Case Western Reserve University, and an LL.M. in Taxation from Southern Methodist University. Sarah’s career has been largely focused on responding to IRS “love letters” and litigating against them, a journey she began with a solid foundation working in CPA firms and teaching in the Accounting department at UT-Arlington. For the past 12 years, she has successfully led her own firm, achieving notable settlements with the IRS and NCDOR on behalf of her clients.

Sarah is passionate about organ donation, believing in its life-saving potential beyond traditional organs, including skin, corneas, stem cells, and bone marrow. A cancer survivor herself, she was told she wouldn’t live past 30 but has defied the odds. Her personal battle with cancer has given her unique insights into facing mortality and the importance of legal planning.

Influenced deeply by her grandfather, “Grumps,” a doctor who inspired her from a young age, Sarah's commitment to her clients is paralleled by her love for her family and pets, a chocolate lab named Dylan, and a yellow lab named Ryan. In her free time, she enjoys reading, watching sports, and playing the piano. Known for her tough, independent, and fun nature, Sarah is also an avid traveler with a particular fondness for Washington, DC, due to its rich history and numerous art museums.

Through her personal and professional journey, Sarah Thacker exemplifies resilience, dedication, and a profound commitment to improving the lives of others.
