Terms of the deal were not disclosed at press time.

The Strategis merger of 31 tax professionals with Smart and Associates’ offices results in the employment of more than 300 business advisory and accounting professionals across the U.S., including 53 in Strategis’ Schaumburg, Ill. and downtown Chicago offices. The combined firms will have offices in Atlanta, New York, and Philadelphia.
