My name is Richard Chiu, the founder of Gold Creek CPA, and a licensed Certified Public Accountant in Washington State. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelors degree in Accounting and a Masters degree in Taxation. I began my career at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Seattle where I worked in a tax projects specialty group primarily focused on conducting Research and Development tax credit studies for large public companies in the Northwest region. After two years at PwC, I had an amazing opportunity to join a tax group at a Seattle financial services company that served ultra high-networth individuals and families. Before I knew it, this position became the foundation of my career for over 13 years.
At Gold Creek CPA, I offer a broad spectrum of tax services for individuals, trusts, estates, partnerships, and tax-exempt organizations. These services include tax return preparation, tax planning and projections, tax research, and charitable planning. I also offer bookkeeping services to businesses of all shapes and sizes. My goal is to utilize my tax knowledge and accounting expertise to serve the individuals, families and small businesses in the local community.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two daughters, our dog and three cats (see the Testimonial page for pictures of the pup and kitties). I am also an active volunteer at the Seattle Humane.
