Before opening his own CPA practice in 2004, he worked for a variety of accounting firms in Oregon, California, and Idaho. Consequently, Jim has experience working with variety of different sized businesses and individuals with both complex and simple financial concerns. Along with deep tax knowledge, Jim has particularly strong skills in QuickBooks, which he developed by both teaching QuickBooks classes over a number of years and consulting with clients in regards to their own unique, and sometimes complex, QuickBooks issues.
