While legislators were in their districts during the summer recess, CalCPA members took advantage of this break to reconnect with their state representatives and build upon the foundation laid during CPA Day earlier this year. During the last week of July and away from the fast-paced Capitol, CalCPA members met with their local representatives and their staff to continue to develop their relationships and to reiterate the professions opposition to the institution of a sales tax on business services and the importance of responsibly addressing conformity of state tax code to new federal tax laws.
While aspects of these issues have been raised to legislators at CPA Day and through the course of the legislative session, these key issues will not be going away and have the chance to move relatively quick next year. Additionally, it is important that we continue to reiterate these points and provide a face to the issues. With tax on services growing as a threat and major tax conformity provisions expected in 2019, tying the impact of these policies to their districts and community provides helpful context for the Legislature to consider.
These efforts help position the CPA profession as thought leaders uniquely qualified to assist legislators in creating fair, effective and efficient tax policy that is practical and administrative for all California taxpayers.
Thank you to all those who participated. Without member support, CalCPA cannot be as successful in its advocacy program.
