    Washington Tax Brief 

    One of the biggest challenges facing tax practitioners is keeping up with changes in tax law.  The AICPA Tax Advocacy Team, based in Washington, D.C., focuses a significant amount of their time on exactly that.  Our advocacy efforts support our members' interests by promoting sound tax policy and effective tax administration.

    The Washington Tax Brief is a webcast series offered by the AICPA Tax Section to help keep you informed on what is happening in Washington that may affect you, your practice, or your clients.

    This webcast series will update you on:

    • Current AICPA tax-related advocacy initiatives;

    • Proposed tax law changes and fundamental tax reform discussions;

    • Recent changes to IRS regulations and other guidance; and

    • Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) initiatives and priorities, such as Circular 230.

    Speakers:  Ed Karl, Vice President - Taxation, and Melissa Labant, Director - Tax Advocacy, and other AICPA staff with insights and knowledge to keep you informed and "in the know."
