Meet the Team
Jamie Ruiz, CPA
Jamie joined Bach, James, Mansour & Company (BJM) in 2020, bringing with him five years of tax experience at a large accounting firm in the Atlanta area. Initially attracted to BJM because he was seeking a better work-life balance, he was sold after learning about BJM’s expansion and growth efforts. Such efforts, he says, provide him the ability to venture outside of his normal practice area and to take on new challenges in the areas of tax and business development. Jamie joins BJM as a tax manager, but also assists in tax return preparation and other business projects as needed.
A self-described “utility player,” Jamie is well-educated in the tax code and maintains a commitment to staying up to date with ever-changing tax laws, regulations, and rulings. When asked to describe himself further, Jamie responded:
“I’m a team player who’s always willing to take on something new, help get a job done, or assist in solving a problem. Even if I don’t immediately know what the answer is, I’ll find out. I take pride in solving problems and finding the best solution available to our clients”.
In his previous role, Jamie was focused on real estate, where he managed and prepared complex tax returns for partnerships, closely held corporations, and high-net-worth individuals. While at BJM, Jamie will expand this skill set and will work towards bringing on additional clients across all areas of real estate. His tax expertise and advisory services cover most of the industry —including, land development and property management for commercial, multifamily residential, and retail projects. Jamie specializes in tax services for pass-through entities and helps clients navigate the complexities surrounding partner income allocations, capital account maintenance, like-kind exchanges, disguised sales, and most recently, opportunity-zone investments.
When he is not working, Jamie enjoys traveling, being outdoors, hanging out with friends, and listening to music with excessive amounts of bass. He and his wife live in Atlanta and are proud fur-parents for a rescued dog and a cat.
