Who We Are

bridges to

From our founding in 1985, Top Kohlbush + Hoem has provided a distinctive level of excellence, becoming one of the Northwest’s most respected local firms providing tax and accounting services.

Our founding partner, Linda Top, started the firm at a time when a woman-owned accounting firm was a rare commodity. However, she realized there was something missing in the accounting industry that larger, more established firms weren’t delivering to clients. She knew she had the vision and know-how to offer clients the services they needed to succeed.

Linda established the firm with an eye toward providing customer-oriented services, with employees who could take the time to get to know their clients in a way that larger firms simply couldn’t offer.

Your Business,
Our Passion

Turning your vision into value.

Top Kohlbush + Hoem works with a variety of clients — from individuals and small businesses to trusts, estates, and multistate companies. Clients come to us seeking our expertise on providing tax and accounting solutions that fit the way they live and do business, and they stay because we’ve earned their trust by becoming a valued partner in their financial lives.

Our core principles remain the same today as they were in 1985: Honesty, integrity, and a responsibility to serve our clients, their families, and our community. We honor those principles in every interaction we have, providing advice, education, and advocacy that allow you to make more strategic financial decisions.

From the start, the firm developed a very caring and nurturing attitude toward client service, and we’ve continued carrying on that attitude today.
