Welcome to my new monthly online newsletter THE TAX PROFESSIONAL!
The purpose of THE TAX PROFESSIONAL is to discuss and debate issues of interest and importance to the profession of preparing income tax returns – such as certification and credentials, dealing with the IRS and state tax agencies, due diligence requirements, ethics and obligations, regulation, representation, tax law complexity, etc.
It will also report on events, products, and online resources – books and publications, blog posts and websites, conferences, conventions and education, forms, schedules and worksheets, technology, etc. – related to the tax preparation profession.
THE TAX PROFESSIONAL will not deal with specific tax deductions, credits, loopholes, or strategies – i.e. educational how to articles on DPAD, FBAR, installment sales, like-kind exchanges, etc. – except where it directly affects the tax preparation profession via required additional due diligence or other time-consuming work outside the scope of actual tax return preparation.
Fellow tax professionals are welcome to respond to the commentary and articles that appear in THE TAX PROFESSIONAL via either a “Counterpoint” response or a Letter to the Editor, to submit guest commentary and articles on issues related to the tax preparation profession, and to bring my attention to events, products and online resources that may be of interest to tax pros.
Submission of Counterpoint and Letters to the Editor must be professional in nature – i.e. no personal attacks – and well-written. The publication of any submission will be at my personal discretion as editor.
I also want to know what you think of THE TAX PROFESSIONAL and welcome suggestions for improvements, additions and topics for discussion.
Send your submission, comments or suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “The Tax Professional Submission” or “The Tax Professional Comment” in the “subject line”.
THE TAX PROFESSIONAL is also accepting paid advertising – acceptance again subject to my personal discretion as editor. Email inquiries to me at email@example.com with “The Tax Professional Advertising” in the “subject line”.
