Glacier Peak Tax Services
Tom Rietkerk, owner, is authorized to practice before the IRS as an Enrolled Agent. An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), are generally unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
Tom has been preparing tax returns for over 30 years and has served as a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance advisor while in the military and most recently; in the 2020 tax season, he prepared over 200 federal and state tax returns. Additionally, he has extensive experience in rental properties, education credits, and 401K/IRA retirements plans.
After a successful 21 year military career and eight years in federal, state, and corporate practice, Tom stepped away in 2019 to spend more time with family and outside pursuits. He and his wife, Denise, have extensively traveled around the US to visit their kids and are hoping to return to international travel again in 2022. Their family was stationed in Germany for three years and Iceland for two years.
Tom maintains his registration as a Professional Engineer (Mechanical) and was formerly a Real Estate Broker in the State of Washington.
