Post-Tax Day Golf Invitational

February 21, 2018

By Bryan Carpenter, The “Craft Beer CPA”

 Taxes and deadlines are a fact of life. If you’re looking for a fun way to decompress, blow off steam and enjoy yourself (for a change), then head to Rancho Bernardo Inn on April 18. We’ve organized a casual and entertaining afternoon of golf with fellow professionals, including CPAs, EAs, attorneys, financial advisors, bankers and risk professionals. Come celebrate the end of busy season at our Get a Grip! Post-Tax Day Golf Invitational. Interest in this event is high and spaces are filling up fast, so reserve yours today.

Hope to see you in April!

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.
