Nickell Tax & Financial Planning, originally Fred Nickell Tax Service, opened its doors over 30 years ago.


Fred Nickell, a retired pastor, began doing taxes out of his home in 1989.  He was looking for a career that allowed him to work only Part-Time and supplement his retirement income. 

In 1994, Fred Nickell Tax Service moved to 319 6th Street, Suite 1, Marysville, CA.

In 2006, Seth Fuhrer, Fred Nickell's grandson took over and incorporated, renaming the business Nickell Tax & Financial Planning.

Most recently, in June 2018, Nickell Tax & Financial Planning moved to it's current location: 610 C Street, Marysville, CA
