    HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- WTAS LLC (formerly Wealth and
 Tax Advisory Services, Inc.) is pleased to announce the expansion of its
 leading tax practice to Harrisburg, PA. The Harrisburg location is the
 fourteenth WTAS office in the country and the seventh office to open or
 expand in the last eight months.
     The Harrisburg office has a full complement of tax professionals with
 over 130 years of combined experience and will be anchored by Scott
 Balestrier, Office Managing Director in Harrisburg with over eighteen years
 of experience in corporate tax. Top advisers in the Harrisburg office also
 include Chuck Chubb, a leading expert in accounting for income taxes with
 over thirty years of experience; Directors Ellen Harles and Marla Miller
 each with over twenty years of experience in public accounting firms and
 within the industry; and Managers Carol Beatty and Jean Peake who have deep
 expertise in tax return compliance and income tax accounting.
     "With our recent successes in Philadelphia, we felt it was imperative
 to have direct representation in Harrisburg to better serve the entities in
 that area. Our move is consistent with our strong commitment to the Central
 Pennsylvania community and providing unmatched service to our existing
 clients," said Scott Balestrier.
     "Our expansion to Harrisburg was based on an identified need in the
 area for tax expertise focused on business entities. Given that our
 competitors have consistently moved out of markets like Harrisburg in favor
 of larger locations, we recognized a clear need for high quality tax
 professionals. We've had an excellent response and are actively building
 the practice in terms of both clients and staff," shared CEO, Mark Vorsatz.
     The new office will focus on assisting business entities in the Central
 Pennsylvania market with all aspects of taxation including planning,
 compliance, income tax accounting, and mergers and acquisitions.
     The Harrisburg office is located at 5000 Ritter Road, Suite 106,
 Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 (717-610-4370). WTAS also has offices serving
 Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Greenwich, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., New
 Jersey, New York City, Palo Alto, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and
 West Palm Beach.
