Heather Benson

Senior Manager | CPA

Education: Fairleigh Dickinson University, B.S. Accounting, 1988

Heather helps her small and closely held business clients adapt to the changing business landscape and tax laws.

As a senior manager with more than 25 years of accounting experience, she ensures that her clients’ state and local tax reporting needs are addressed properly and thoroughly. Heather focuses on multi-state and local income tax matters, such as nexus issues, apportionment of income, state filing options, federal and state tax controversies, and voluntary disclosures.

An excellent and responsive communicator, Heather enjoys supporting her clients; understanding their accounting, tax, and management challenges; and acting as a decision-making resource. She helps clients identify exposure to state and local taxes as well as solutions to mitigate exposure and realize tax savings.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Heather now calls the beautiful Columbia River Gorge home. Prior to joining the Delap team, she was a senior manager at Isler Northwest in Portland.

Outside the office, Heather enjoys planning family gatherings and volunteering at her church. She also recently completed her yoga teacher training certification in order to take her yoga practice to the next level.
