Partner Profile: Thomas Liu
Thomas Liu is a tax partner who joined WNDE in 2018.
He was born in Taiwan, and came to California at age 12. He was drawn to the accounting profession, he said, “because I like law, and I like to find ways to minimize taxes.”
Thomas earned his B.S. in Business Economics from the University of California, Los Angeles and an M.S.T. in Taxation from Golden Gate University. He is a CPA with 18 years of experience in public accounting, primarily in the taxation area. His specialty is flow-through entities such as S corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, as well as tax planning for high-net-worth individuals. He is also experienced in the trust, gift and estate taxation areas.
He was most recently employed by Hall & Company, another Irvine accounting firm, for nearly 12 years before coming to WNDE. He chose WNDE, he said, because he knew people in the firm who told him “it is a nice environment and it allows for work-life balance.”
He is a member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the California Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is fluent in Mandarin and the Hakka Chinese dialect. He enjoys golf and activities with his children.
