NCCPAP Takes Its Tax Ideas to DC

Representatives of the National Conference of CPA Practitioners visited the White House, Congress and the Internal Revenue Service during meetings in Washington, D.C., last week – and they weren’t there for the photo opp.

The 20 members brought with them their ideas on a number of tax-related issues, including identity theft, required minimum distributions, deduction of long-term health care premiums, tax preparation fees, rental deduction parity for S corporations, early retirement plan distributions, and the need for the IRS to have the authority to regulate tax return preparers.   Read more ...  NCCPAP May 11 in DC

The National Conference of CPA Practitioners and the Texas Association of CPAs Announced a Strategic Alliance at TACPA’s Spring Meeting on Friday, May 5, 2017
TACPA board secretary M.R. Yousuf, immediate past NCCPAP president Sandra Johnson, current NCCPAP president Stephen Mankowski, and TACPA vice president Marc Core
The alliance will give TACPA access to NCCPAP’s resources and national reach, while giving the latter a major base in a state it had not been very active in recently. Both groups focus on serving CPAs in public practice at small firms.“In simple terms, they’re going to be functioning similar to our different chapters, except that they’re going to maintain their own identity,” NCCPAP president Stephen Mankowski told Accounting Today. “They want to leverage NCCPAP from an infrastructure perspective – for instance, they’ll be able to make major enhancements on their site, like forums, better calendars, and tracking of continuing education, which are all items we have in place already on our site.”
