Dwight Littlefield, CPA,  Principal of Littlefield, Fanning & Co., P.S.

Dwight provides a blend of tax planning, tax compliance, business consulting, and business perspective only years of real world experience can give for closely held and family-owned companies, and the individuals who own them. It is a passion and desire for an understanding of how successful businesses operate in a changing economy that keeps him focused on client issues.

For several years, Dwight worked for Pricewaterhouse Coopers as a director in their Washington DC national tax office. This rare combination of experience working with closely held and family owned businesses and deep tax knowledge has proven invaluable in his work serving these companies. He serves business clients in industries one would expect to find in the Pacific Northwest such as real estate, construction, technology, distribution, and ones not typically found in the Pacific Northwest like oil and gas.

When the work is done anything outdoors is fair game including hiking, skiing, or tennis with his wife Jennifer, their three children, and friends.
