President's Message

Help CalCPA Grow

January 10, 2018

By Megan Boldizsar

I don’t know about you, but I’m really busy between work, volunteering for CalCPA and hanging out with friends and family. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and forget to take the time to meet new people, learn new things and just have fun. My New Year’s resolution is to carefully pick something that will improve my skills, give back to my community and help grow CalCPA. The chapter board had all of this in mind when planning events for the upcoming year, which begins May 1. Events will be focused and fun! We want to show our appreciation and honor those who work hard to achieve, such as our bright scholarship winners and newly licensed CPAs. Stay tuned for all the details. In the meantime, let’s all look to 2018 and make it a great year!

Behind the License

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 carsplay in a banddevote time to nonprofit causeshave taken on physical endurance challengessurfDJ 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.

IRS E-Services Moves to Secure Access Protection

As of Dec. 10, all tax professionals and payers who wish to use e-Services must create an e-Services account using a more rigorous identity proofing process called Secure Access Authentication.

Any e-Services user who has not previously created a Secure Access account through Get Transcript Online, IP PIN tool, View Balance or by exception processing in recent days must validate their identity through this more rigorous process. This also includes all TIN Matching users and users who received Letter 5903 last December and authenticated by telephone.

This new process is not optional on the part of the IRS or its online users. The change is being made to meet federal information system standards.
