National Taxpayer Advocate (NTA) Nina Olson recently released her 2016 Annual Report to Congress. In the report, Olson recognized the quality work of TSCPA’s Federal Tax Policy (FTP) Committee by referencing its appeals letter to the IRS in May and specific FTP committee member testimony from the NTA San Antonio public forum in August.
TSCPA members Jaime Vasquez, CPA-San Antonio, and Jim Smith, CPA-Dallas,* were both quoted in the annual report from their public forum testimony regarding problems within the Taxpayer Advocate Centers and the Taxpayer Advocate Service. Congratulations to the FTP Committee on this well-deserved recognition from the NTA!
