In 1994, Brian R. Kooyman started KOOYMAN TAX SERVICE in Marengo, IA. His business goal was to offer customers an alternative service to the high priced national firms.
As business grew in the Marengo office, a friend and Brian’s father helped him open an Iowa City office in 2000. Six years later the Iowa City office relocated to its current home in North Liberty. True to Brian’s original business goal, KOOYMAN TAX SERVICE fees are often 30 to 50 percent less than larger firm’s regular prices. He is able to do this without sacrificing quality of service by avoiding the franchise fees and overhead expenses associated with operating a national firm.
All of KOOYMAN TAX SERVICE preparers have at least 5 years of experience with many of them approaching 10 years or more. Brian is proud to say his service hires local professionals from other professions to assist work during the busy tax season, to include a manufacturing firm accountant, a teacher, a manager, a paralegal and a bank officer. Brian has prepared his own taxes since high school and professionally since 1994.
Brian and Kathy are the parents of three young adult children, Mike, Kristina, and Austin; and the proud grandparents of MaKenzie, Carter, and Drake.
