The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and InvestmentNews have teamed up this tax season to offer online answers to tax questions submitted by financial advisers.
Readers of the weekly newspaper will be able to submit tax questions to InvestmentNews for consideration. The answers will be provided by a panel of CPAs who are members of the AICPA's Tax Division.
"Our members were delighted to be asked to participate in this InvestmentNews project," said Tom Ochsenschlager, AICPA vice president–taxation. "They see it as a way to use their expertise as a public service during tax season."
Suzanne Siracuse, publisher of InvestmentNews, said, "A similar question and answer opportunity on our Web site on year-end planning was such a success with our readers we decided to offer readers a chance to ask tax questions." Members of the AICPA's Personal Financial Planning Section answered the year-end planning questions.
"Ask the CPA Q&A" on InvestmentNews' Web site will run through April 15. The questions and answers will be archived on the Web site.
