Tax Compliance

  • Federal tax return preparation

    Having over 12 years of tax compliance experience working with high-networth individuals and families has exposed me to a broad spectrum of extremely complicated tax returns. I am well versed in the preparation of tax returns which include individuals (Form 1040), estates and trusts (Form 1041), partnerships (Form 1065), S Corporations (Form 1120S), C Corporations (Form 1120), private foundations (Form 990-PF), gift tax (Form 709), Foreign Bank Account Reporting (Form FinCen 114) and Washington State Business and Occupations ("B&O") tax returns.
  • Multi-state income tax returns

    Income from various types of businesses and investments can span across state borders. I understand the complexities of multi-state income tax issues and can assist in the preparation of state income tax returns to comply with state filing requirements.
  • IRS and State tax authority representation

    Receiving a tax notice from the IRS or state taxing authority can be daunting to taxpayers. Being familiar with the general tax resolution process, I can work with IRS and state tax agents to help clients resolve tax issues effectively and efficiently.

Tax Consulting

  • Quarterly estimated tax projections

    Quarterly estimated tax projections is an important part of the tax preparation process that ensures your estimated tax obligations are met and reduces the risk of incurring estimated tax penalties.
  • Tax planning

    By making tax planning part of your overall financial or business strategy, I can help create a comprehensive, multi-year plan to minimize both your current and future tax liabilities.
  • Incentive stock option analysis

    Incentive stock options ("ISOs") can be complicated and can have numerous tax implications. I understand the balancing act of exercising ISOs and overall timing of selling ISOs to maximize growth in an investment portfolio while reducing ones tax exposure.

Financial and Accounting

  • Bookkeeping

    Meaningful, well-organized financial records ensure that your business operations will run more efficiently on a daily basis and are the foundation of a successful business. I cater the bookkeeping frequency that best suits your business or personal needs. I use cloud accounting software that automates data entry which makes it easy for you and I to collaborate and ultimately saves you valuable time to focus on growing your business.
  • Financial statement review

    I can assist you in the preparation of your financial statements in accordance with professional standards, however express no opinion or any other form of assurance on the underlying information included in them. The financial statements produced can be a useful tool for management for making financial decisions.
  • Financial statement compilation

    Financial statement compilation is based upon client information provided and used primarily for internal use.

Outsourced CFO

  • Part-time CFO

    An outsourced part-time CFO can save a small business owner a large sum of money without sacrificing any of the great benefits of having a finance professional on your side. As a part-time CFO, I can help manage cash flow, review and report financial information to management efficiently as well as perform other important finance-related tasks that can often fall under the radar at busy small businesses. All of these great benefits are provided to you without the high overhead costs of a full-time CFO.

About Gold Creek CPA

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 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 quickly turned into the foundation of my career for the last 12 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.
