About PorterKinney, PC

PorterKinney is a premier accounting firm located in the Tri-Cities, WA which specializes in strategic tax preparation for individuals and businesses.

The firm dates back to 2006, when Chris Porter began operating a home-based tax firm and prepared his first tax returns on his kitchen counter. In June 2014, Walter Kinney left a large local firm to partner with Chris, and the company was named PorterKinney, PC.

Our tax and accounting experience covers a wide range of market segments, from farmers’ fields to physicians’ offices. On November 15, 2019, PorterKinney purchased the Kennewick CPA Firm Marple & Marple, which was founded in 1973 by Robert E. Marple, Sr. All eight full-time employees of Marple & Marple were rehired by PorterKinney, bringing with them a wealth of experience in tax and accounting.
