Dedicated resources in the nation’s capital
RSM established its first Washington, D.C. office in November 2010, further demonstrating the firm’s connectivity with and commitment to key government agencies and organizations headquartered in the nation’s capital. The firm’s Washington National Tax (WNT) and federal practices reside at this location. In January 2020, RSM established its second downtown Washington, D.C. location by joining forces with Tate & Tryon, P.C., a Washington, D.C.-based accounting firm focused on serving the audit, tax and consulting needs of nonprofit organizations. Several of RSM’s key national nonprofit practice leaders are based out of our offices in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
