Tenenbaum, Esq., CPA, LL.M. and Principal/Founder of Tenenbaum Law, P.C. of Melville, NY has been invited to present a number of critical topics at ATS 2020, NCCPAP’s Annual Accounting and Tax Symposium on November 10, 13, 18, and 19. She has participated as a featured speaker for all 18 years—since its inception!

According to Ms. Tenenbaum, “The Tax Symposium is unique in that it brings together top thought leaders and practitioners at a single event. Although I’ll miss seeing my friends and colleagues in person, I appreciate that our co-chairs have worked exceptionally hard so that we can still gather (albeit remotely), exchange ideas, learn from one another, build relationships, and form strategic alliances.” Karen has been a proud member of NCCPAP for over 30 years, including Past Chair of the Tax Liaison Committee of the Nassau/Suffolk Chapter. She continues, “It is a wonderful organization dedicated to educating tax professionals and advocating on behalf of its members, their clients, and the public with respect to tax laws. It is an organization where practicing, experienced practitioners help one another on a regular basis. You can always pick up the phone and get sound advice from a colleague.”

This year’s impressive lineup of speakers includes over 60 knowledgeable thought leaders on a wide variety of topics. They are experienced presenters who are skilled at educating and engaging conference attendees. Ms. Tenenbaum’s sessions at this year’s symposium include: Five Degrees of Perspective on NYS Residency and Hear Directly from the IRS about IRS Tax Collection.
