NJCPA Thanks Members of Congress for Urging Additional Relief for Taxpayers and Practitioners

As we move closer to federal filing deadlines, the New Jersey Society of CPAs continues to push for meaningful relief for taxpayers and practitioners from the IRS.

Recently, 42 U.S. Senators and 65 U.S. Representatives signed a letter to Commissioner Rettig asking why the IRS has not taken certain actions, including suspension of additional notices, IRS statutory authority on suspending additional notices, delaying implementation of K-2/K-3 requirements and targeted penalty relief for taxpayers.

New Jersey Senators Menendez and Booker and Representatives  Pallone, Pascrell, Sherrill, Smith and Watson Coleman signed the letter urging the IRS and Treasury to implement recommendations from the AICPA and state societies that would ease the burden of this tax season.

The NJCPA joins the AICPA and Members of Congress in advocating for meaningful relief for taxpayers and practitioners during this tax season. “The IRS has acknowledged the challenges and frustrations of this tax season, and thanks to the work of our members and many others, they’ve taken steps to ease some of the burden. But we know that more can, and should, be done,” said Ralph Albert Thomas, CPA (DC), CGMA, CEO and executive director of the NJCPA. “We’re continuing to advocate on behalf of members alongside the AICPA, Members of Congress and many other organizations to urge more significant relief.”
