"Kurt has been doing our taxes for four years and is knowledgeable, responsive, quick and always gets us the best tax refund! He just moved his office from Ballard to West Seattle to work in his own neighborhood, and we're happy to have him here! With a small business, a home, investments and kids, having Kurt do our taxes is a huge weight lifted. He's quick to answer questions and is always up to date on the latest tax code. We highly recommend Pacific Tax West Seattle. Don't hesitate to hire Kurt!"
~ Sarah L of West Seattle
"Kurt is AWESOME! I have been working with him for many years and he always provides first class service! He is super thorough and is great with answering all of my questions every single year. Kurt takes the time to really explain and review your taxes with you in a way that makes sense to us non-tax people that is also fun and easy to understand!
Kurt will always look for ways to help you in the upcoming year as well when it comes to pre-tax contributions to help maximize future returns. I honestly accredit him for my higher 401k contributions which I was severely slacking on.
Kurt is the best!"
~ Rachel H of Kirkland WA
"Kurt has been doing my taxes as long as I can remember. Being in tech my income tends to be spikey with lot's of moving parts like RSUs and bonuses and he does a great job keeping me straight. I would recommend going to Pacific Tax West Seattle to anyone looking for an accountant who understands the way we work."

Eligibility for and the amount of the Recovery Rebate Credit are based on 2020 tax year information while the Economic Impact Payments were based on 2019 tax year information.
