Reid Tatsuguchi, CPA
Reid Tatsuguchi is a CPA, licensed to practice in the State of Hawaii since July 31, 1998. After working for several CPA firms in Honolulu, Reid founded Tatsuguchi CPA LLC, which he has operated for more than a decade.
The company initially began as R.G. Tatsuguchi & Associates LLC, which was later named Tatsuguchi CPA LLC. The company welcomed its first clients in October 2005.
Reid follows in the footsteps of his father, who also operated an accounting practice in Honolulu. Reid began preparing tax returns when he was 18 years old, working for his father’s accounting practice.
He initially focused on serving Japan-based businesses and individuals with operations in Hawaii. This later expanded to multi-state businesses and estate and gift tax returns. Currently, Reid focuses on serving small business owners who require accounting and payroll services as well as tax planning assistance.
“Every client’s needs are different and I enjoy taking the time to understand their unique business operations, so that I can provide sound advice to help them make informed decisions,” Reid said. “It’s a great feeling to know that I’m helping to contribute to their success.”
