Spotlight News

Annual Compliance Kit
Exclusive for Tax Section members, the 2016 Annual Compliance Kit is now available to help practitioners with the upcoming tax season. This valuable resource includes engagement letters, organizers, checklists, and practice guides.
Client Communication Materials Just Released for Tax Season
Whether it's potential changes in tax law or personal finance that are on clients' minds now, you can address them confidently with resources, such as brochures, tweets and talking points from the Tax Practitioner's Toolkit.
New & Updated SSTS FAQs
The answers to these frequently asked questions (FAQs) are based on guidance developed by the SSTS Guidance Task Force in response to questions that were presented during the SSTS public exposure period and since that time in administering the SSTSs. These FAQs are not rules, regulations, or official statements of the Tax Executive Committee issued pursuant to its rule-making authority and, therefore are not authoritative guidance.

The Tax Resource Library offers a comprehensive mix of resources to help CPA tax practitioners elevate their practice, stay current on trending issues, and maintain the highest ethical standards.

In recent years, dealing with the IRS has becoming increasingly challenging. Our IRS Practice and Tax Administration resource page is your one-stop shop for resources to help you navigate IRS procedure and feel confident that you are effectively serving your client's IRS issues.

We offer information, guidance, resources and practice aids to help our members navigate the multiple practice standards and ethics rules that govern tax practitioners, including the SSTSs and Circular 230, to help our members maintain the highest professional standards in tax practice.

Exclusive Tax Section Member-Only Content 

The AICPA is stronger because of dedicated Tax Section members like you. We appreciate you and your support. To show our thanks, Tax Section members will receive four complimentary webcasts each year that offer eight hours of CPE credit.

Tax Section Volunteer Opportunities 

We have approximately 280 volunteers serving across 15 volunteer groups, including committees, tax technical resource panels, task forces, and other working groups. Our volunteers are divided into three categories: advocacy, member service, and ethics.

These groups are an invaluable resource to the Institute as they provide guidance on complex and sometimes high-profile tax issues and serve as the subject matter experts behind the guidance and resources developed as a benefit of Tax Section membership. Visit our Community page for more information.

You must be a Tax Section member to apply to be a volunteer in the Tax Division.
