CPAs Who Go Beyond Bookkeeping

Established in 1964 in Portland’s Hollywood district, this firm already offered extraordinary tax planning services. Since then, I have evolved our firm beyond the typical accounting solutions to include estate planning and wealth advisory because I wanted to take care of my family’s legacy wealth and help others do the same.

That’s why I show up for my clients, not just from January through April, but ALL year long. I’ve seen the disaster that is created as a result of bookkeeping that is kept separate from tax planning. And I don’t want that for you.

I enjoy connecting with my clients to understand what’s most important to them so I can help them make their dreams a reality, in this life and for the legacy they leave behind.

On behalf of my family and our amazing team at Downing & Co, I look forward to working with you so you can save in taxes today and ensure your legacy for the future.

Switching CPA Firms is Easier Than You Think

Switching from your current Portland tax accountant seems like a major pain in the butt…
But in reality, all it requires is a brief email with your current accountant/bookkeeper:
“It’s time for a new direction. Please send my books over to Downing & Company, LLC. Thank you for your services.”
Your accountant is professionally mandated to provide your books to whomever you request they go to. It’s really that easy.

We’ll start your journey through our proprietary client interview process to review your unique situation and develop actionable recommendations that meet or exceed your tax, bookkeeping, or estate planning needs quickly and conveniently.
