Our advocacy work focuses on issues at the state and federal level, which affect small CPA firms and the middle-income and small business clients we diligently serve. Whether we’re on Capitol Hill or meeting IRS representatives, NCCPAP members not only provide valuable advice to government officials and representatives, but insights which are valued. In fact, because we represent CPA firms who are “on the ground,” NCCPAP members are often invited to weigh-in at Senate Roundtable discussions and IRS liaison meetings.
