Christopher Brown, CPA


Seamlessly integrating a background in management and a natural brilliance for accounting, Chris joined the Harris team after relocating from Virginia to Idaho in 2021. As an Experienced Accountant, Chris is responsible for preparing various tax returns for individuals and a wide range of industries. Especially skilled in net operating losses and tax research, he has also been responsible for preparing and presenting Continuing Professional Education sessions relating to the tax effects associated with the CARES Act.

Chris received his first degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from James Madison University; however, he always found himself attracted to the accounting aspects of the operation. After spending 20 years as a manager in the restaurant industry, Chris decided to pursue his aptitude for accounting and returned to James Madison University to attain his master’s degree in Accountancy.

Born into a military family, Chris was born in San Jose, California, and lived in 11 cities across the United States and abroad by the time he turned 18. A long-time sports enthusiast, he played soccer and track in high school and is an avid fan of the Kansas City Royals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. True to his roots, Chris loves to travel and most recently turned a cross country move into a week-long road trip with his wife, Bridgott, and their two dogs.
