Interactive guide makes it easy to track legislative and executive changes that could affect CPAs and other tax and accounting professionals.
Trump Tracker for CPAs.— With the 2016 presidential election wrapped up and Donald Trump in office as America's 45th president, the executive changes and tax reforms proposed during President Trump's campaign are making their way through the legislative hierarchy. Meanwhile, accountants, tax professionals, and the general public speculate about the potential impacts. In response, Surgent, the leading continuing education provider for CPAs and tax professionals, has launched its
"Surgent is all about making the jobs of CPAs and other tax and accounting professionals easier. That’s why we’re so excited to launch our Trump Tracker for CPAs," said Amy Plent, JD, Senior Vice President of Continuing Education Curriculum for Surgent. "CPAs want to be totally up to speed on developments their clients may ask about and if there is one thing CPAs don’t have this time of year, it’s spare time to be reading up on legislation. So we’re doing it for them. Our interactive guide simplifies the process of tracking the specific legislative and executive changes that are most likely to affect tax and accounting professionals and their clients. We provide up-to-date status summaries of each proposed change, broken down into clearly labeled categories based upon the current status of the proposal. With this new tool, getting the latest relevant information is as simple as clicking on an area of interest."
Surgent’s Trump Tracker for CPAs covers such hot-button topics as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Repeal/Replace efforts, the Estate/Gift Tax, the Net Investment Income Tax, the Alternative Minimum Tax, and more. Per Surgent’s Trump Tracker, repeal of the Net Investment Income Tax is currently working its way through Congress. This effort was included as a provision of the American Health Care Act (ACHA) legislation, which has been introduced to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. That legislation is working its way through the committee process in the House of Representatives now. For the latest updates on ACA, view the ACA Repeal and Replace line in Surgent’s Trump Tracker.
Concluded Plent, "Our Trump Tracker is geared toward all accountants and tax professionals. Through this easy-to-use online visualization, followers have access to the latest news on proposed changes, including exactly where they are in the legislative process and what step will be next. We encourage interested CPAs and tax preparers to visit the Surgent website to learn more."
