Along with partner Ian Woodman, Byron Pederson runs Instant Tax Solutions, a diversified tax debt resolution agency.

Byron Pederson’s work experience encompassed a variety of fields, none of which felt quite right to him until he found his way to founding Instant Tax Solutions. Early in his adult life, Byron Pederson decided that he wanted a career in culinary arts. After working in an upscale dining establishment, he realized that he desired a more physically challenging role and turned to construction. As foreman for a subterranean parking structures builder, Byron Pederson gained the experience he needed to branch off on his own. He soon opened his own successful residential masonry business. Byron Pederson was enjoying life as entrepreneur but circumstances intervened and set in motion the events that led him to where he is today.
While Byron Pederson was busy with his own firm, he caught the attention of an outdoor design business who offered him a lucrative position in Quality Control. He worked his way up and became District Sales Manager of the company. However, as Byron Pederson grew as a business professional, so did his aches and pains from working the physically demanding jobs he so desired in his youth. Knowing that it was time for change, Byron Pederson made the decision to change careers once again and, now understanding the challenges that business owners face at tax time, he traveled to California for an intense tax-training program. Instant Tax Solutions was birthed in 2008 and has become one of the nation’s most respected tax firms with Byron Pederson leading the way.
Personally, Byron Pederson is active in his church as well as in a ministry program he initiated to help hopeless individuals with life-skills and employment training. He is a mentor and friend to the many people he has helped through the years. Eventually, Byron Pederson hopes to expand the ministry to assist other individuals in coping with major life transitions.
Byron Pederson and his wife have one son and a large extended family. The couple lives life to the fullest and credits laughter with their long-lasting relationship.
