Published November 17, 2014

Washington, D.C. (November 17, 2014) – Troy K. Lewis, chair of the American Institute of CPAs’ Tax Executive Committee, will testify on Tuesday, November 18, at a hearing titled, Tax Relief after a Disaster: How Individuals, Small Businesses, and Communities Recover, which will be held by the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Taxation and IRS Oversight.

Lewis will urge Congress to pass permanent tax disaster assistance legislation, which would be automatically triggered by a declaration of a federal disaster, so that taxpayers would be fairly treated and have prompt access to relief. 

The hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. in Room 215 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building at First and C Streets, N.E., in Washington, D.C.

The AICPA’s testimony will be available on November 18 from Shirley Twillman at stwillman@aicpa.org.
