||One of the biggest challenges facing tax practitioners is keeping up with changes in the tax law. The AICPA Tax Team, based in Washington, DC, 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 of in Washington that may affect you, your practice, or your clients.
This webcast 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 division and other AICPA staff with insights and knowledge to keep you informed and "in the know."
Save the Date! Our next Briefing has been scheduled for June 2014.
Tax Section members will have the option of attending this event for free, without CPE.
