The Sean Brock Foundation provides resources, educational assistance and scholarship to the families of fallen or wounded service members. The nonprofit organization is named in honor of U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Sean Lee Brock, who put his education on hold in 2004 when he was deployed to Iraq for a second term.
Brock died on Feb. 2, 2005, from injuries sustained in battle.
CalCPA is proud to be a co-host of this event.
Event proceeds will be split between the Sean Brock Foundation, which awards scholarships to the families of fallen or wounded service members, and the CalCPA Los Angeles Chapter, which awards scholarship to local college/university students studying accounting. Last year the chapter awarded $30,000 in scholarships.
So, get your teams ready for some friendly competition and help raise scholarships funds! And check out the Facebook page for run updates.

Tax on services continues to be a topic of discussion in the Legislature. A recently introduced bill, SB 640 (Hertzberg), proposes to enact a sales tax on services—including those provided by CPAs. While the bill does not articulate how such a complex shift in the tax burden would be accomplished, the introduction of this legislation keeps the issue on the radar within the public policy arena—particularly as tax reform conversations heat up.
Similar far-reaching tax on services proposals were introduced in 2015 and 2016 by Sen. Hertzberg, but both bills died in the Legislature when they failed to meet legislative deadlines. These proposal have been characterized as a way to broaden California’s tax base to address a volatile stream of tax revenue. However, the proposal would impose an extremely complex shift in the tax burden to raise billions in new tax revenues.
We know there’s more to your life than the tax forms, deadlines and rules and regulations that you spend time with at the office. And we want to tell your story—or the story of a member you may know.
Our monthly Final Entry feature in California CPA takes a look at the person behind the license. Over the years we’ve featured members who race cars, play in a band, devote time to nonprofit causes, have taken on physical endurance challenges, surf, DJ and make wine.
So, what’s your story?
If you’d like to participate or want to recommend a colleague, contact managing editor Damien English with details and we’ll set up a short interview.
