Tax Reform: Then and Now - Exclusive Video
Will the past predict the future? Hear from Larry Gibbs, IRS Commissioner during the Tax Reform Act of 1986. In this three-part interview, Edward Karl, AICPA VP-Taxation, talks to Gibbs about how the tax reform effort happened, and what we might expect to see play out in today’s tax reform environment in the coming months.

When it comes to running and managing a successful tax practice, you need the right tools and resources. We offer guidance, practice aids, and tools specifically designed to help CPA tax practitioners excel in their practices.

In recent years, dealing with the IRS has become increasingly challenging. Our IRS Procedure and Tax Administration page is your one-stop shop for resources to help you feel confident that you are effectively serving your clients' IRS issues.

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

Tax Division Volunteer Opportunities 

We have approximately 280 volunteers serving across 15 volunteer groups, including committees, 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.
