McClanahan Tax owner Larry McClanahan
Hi, I'm Larry McClanahan.

I help people in the second half of life use smart planning strategies to save taxes in retirement.

With over 35 years of diverse business and management experience, I've worn many hats. I've been an Accountant, City Manager, VP & CFO for a private college, and CFO of a Canadian startup firm. Now, I own and operate both tax and wealth management practices focused on clients in the second half of life.

As an Enrolled Agent (EA) I'm licensed to practice before the IRS. I'm also an Oregon Licensed Tax Consultant (LTC) and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP®) professional.

Fun facts about me:


  • Growing up, my family had a pet raccoon named "Maxi."

  • At age 26, I was likely the youngest City Manager in Oregon, serving the City of Myrtle Point.

  • You probably wouldn't guess it from looking at me, but I used to "rock the house" on bass in church worship bands and a blues-rock trio called The Young and The Beautiful.

  • My 23andMe test revealed I have more Neanderthal DNA than 84% of people tested (at the time). Which explains a lot according to my wife.

  • Besides being quoted in national media, I've answered over 1,100 questions from the public on finance sites Investopedia, Nerdwallet, WalletHub, and BrightScope.
