Bob Nakamura has been preparing income taxes since 2012. Presently, he works on corporate, partnership and individual tax returns and prepares client accounts for audit.
As an Enrolled Agent he is a federally authorized tax practitioner empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury who represents taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). EA status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS and is recognized in all 50 U.S. states
Bob was born in Subic Bay, Philippines, the son of a Japanese-American US Navy serviceman and his Philippine wife. He lived with his family in Honolulu, Hawaii, before his father decided to settle their family permanently in Tacoma, WA to avoid the frequent re-locations that are common with military life.
Bob began his professional life working in administration for the Ernst Corporation, and later for the Washington Department of Corrections. While working, Bob completed most of his undergraduate courses in business and accounting at the University of Washington. Upon completion, Bob began part-time work as a bookkeeper and inventory control specialist with Foster Counting Service in Seattle.
In 2000, Bob decided to change careers, and obtained a license as a commercial electrician. During the long apprenticeship for that highly specialized position, Bob worked part-time as a bookkeeper for M.J. Feet, Inc. in Seattle. After two years, he was promoted to Assistant Controller and continued at MJ Feet until he completed his electrical apprenticeship.
Bob enjoyed the challenging work as a commercial electrician and worked mainly on new commercial buildings. After the financial crash in 2008, however, when commercial electrical work became scarce, Bob decided to return to school at North Seattle Community College to complete his accounting degree.
Working as a personal and corporate tax adviser is both satisfying and challenging. Each individual, partnership and company faces unique situations that often require complicated resolutions; a responsibility which Bob takes very seriously. Bob has been happily married since 1990. Bob and his spouse have lived in their tree-covered home on Magnolia in Seattle since 2001.They love to travel and over the years have complied a large collection of books, art and ethnic artifacts.
