Slayton Gilmore

CPA, Manager

I appreciate how much importance Smith and Howard places on its people. We work together as a team and career development is deeply ingrained in everything we do.


Slayton provides domestic and international tax consulting and compliance services to clients across many industries and at every stage of their business cycle.

Slayton has been with Smith and Howard since 2013, beginning as an intern. He is a manager in our Tax practice and a member of our Real Estate and Construction groups. Slayton’s main focus is on partnership taxation, with an emphasis on commercial and residential real estate. He helps evaluate and structure deals to optimize the owner’s/investor’s return and minimize tax exposure. Slayton has also amassed experience in fixed asset/depreciation considerations, including tangible property regulations, qualified improvement property rules and cost segregation opportunities. Within the firm, Slayton leads Excel training across all departments and has led new hire training for busy season in the tax department for several years.

Slayton is a proud, long-time resident of Atlanta’s bustling Westside. As an avid amateur DJ, music producer and drummer in his past life, he is often found tapping, whistling or humming his way through the day.
