After graduating from Eastern Washington University with a degree in Accounting and working in the industry for 7 years, Bruce founded the Company in 1972.  The success of the Company is a tribute to Bruce's passion for income tax preparation, income tax planning, and client service. He truly enjoys the challenge of legally minimizing income tax liability for individuals and small businesses in the community.  

When he is not doing tax returns Bruce enjoys playing tennis, driving his Kubota tractor, and spending time with his wife Vicki, his 5 children, and his 11 grandchildren.
