    Washington Tax Brief 

    One of the biggest challenges facing tax practitioners is keeping up with changes in the tax law.  The AICPA Tax Team, based in Washington, D.C., focuses a significant amount of their time on exactly that.  Our tax advocacy efforts support the public interest and our members by advocating for 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 of what is going on in Washington that may affect you, your practice, or your clients.

    This webcast series will update you on:

    • Proposed tax law changes and fundamental tax reform initiatives

    • Recent changes to IRS regulations and other guidance

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

    • Current AICPA tax-related advocacy initiatives

    Speakers are members of the Tax Team and other AICPA staff with insights and knowledge to keep you informed and "in the know."
