 Message from NSA President

Marilyn M. Niwao, J.D., CPA, ATA, CGMA


Help NSA Help You!

To All Tax Practitioners and Taxpayers:

For many years Congress and the IRS have been shifting the heavy burden of making our nation’s tax system work onto the shoulders of tax practitioners. Retroactive tax laws, deteriorating IRS service, and undue IRS demands during tax filing seasons now increasingly define the world where tax practitioners work. Members of our hard working profession are frustrated and have been asking for help for years. NSA has listened and has taken the initiative to develop a Tax Practitioners’ Bill of Rights as a first step towards reversing this trend. (See http://www.nsacct.org/blogs/julene-joy/2015/06/16/nsa-proposes-tax-practitioners-bill-of-rights.)

To give Congress and the IRS a sense of how serious the current situation is and to express support for the Tax Practitioners’ Bill of Rights, NSA has launched an electronic petition available online where tax practitioners and taxpayers can add their names in support as well as offer additional comments. The more people who sign the petition, the more weight it will carry when NSA presses for changes with Congress and the IRS. That is why I am asking for your help now. Please join me in spreading the word and signing the petition. The petition is available at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/nsa-bill. Please share this petition with your fellow colleagues and any taxpayers you know who might agree with the Tax Practitioners’ Bill of Rights.

Thank you for your support!

Very truly yours,

Marilyn M. Niwao, J.D., CPA, ATA, CGMA
