Rikki Patch, CPA

Rikki Patch joined DZA in 2004, bringing with her four years of experience in both public and private accounting. Her public accounting experience included preparing individual and corporate tax returns, filing quarterly and annual payroll taxes, processing W-2’s and annual reconciliations, bookkeeping, and preparing compilations.

At DZA, Rikki specializes in working with not-for-profit organizations. She enjoys helping not-for-profits tell their story while complying with federal regulations. This is an important role because it justifies a not-for-profit’s tax-exempt status.

Rikki is DZA’s IRS Form 990 specialist, filing more than 100 federal and state returns per year.

Outside of the office, she likes sewing, crafting, hiking, and chauffeuring her kids to their activities. Rikki also serves as the treasurer for her child’s soccer team and a Booster Club volunteer.
