Is it possible to have a favorite tax regulation?  This week we asked our participants to share a favorite (or not so favorite) regulation or tax code. Check out the interesting responses below.

Here are some highlights from the latest Top 100…

Let’s hear it for Mr. Nerd Enterprises, Seth David, who advanced 54 spots to land at #19 on this week’s Top 100 Leaderboard! We’d be hard pressed to find anyone in the tax and accounting industry who hasn’t heard of Seth – QuickBooks Online expert, teacher, animal lover, CFO, Explainer in Chief to startups and small business owners who need to master complex financial concepts. Seth is deeply embedded in the accounting technology ecosystem, and a go-to for opinions on new and existing apps. He’s also a really nice guy, a friend to many, imminently approachable (back when we used to have in-person conferences), and most of all a willing helper to accounting pros and business owners everywhere. We’re honored to have Seth’s continued participation in the Top 100 Leaderboard!

Moving on up: Kelly Gonsalves @totallybookedny up 152 points from 207 to land at 55.

Newest to the Leaderboard: Travis Raml, CPA and Albert Campo, CPA

How the leaderboard works: The Accounting Top 100 social media leaderboard uses an algorithm that scores and ranks users based on five separate metrics, each of which is weighted according to its perceived value. These five metrics are calculated every two weeks and combined to form a Power Score: a 1-100 value based on Rise.Global’s Relative Scoring Method. This Power Score determines a user’s rank on each new leaderboard release.

Want to see yourself rank even higher?

Remember, a new leaderboard with updated rankings is generated every two weeks, so keep up the great work on social media and watch your ranking climb!

Avalara’s Accounting Top 100 leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) is assembled using a list of accounting professional users that’s curated by manual entry as well as by Rise.Global's internal Twitter search functionality. We reserve the right to change scoring metrics used for ranking and to exclude anyone from the list, in our sole discretion. The Leaderboard is not an endorsement, recommendation or sponsorship of any of the accounting professionals on the Leaderboard, and we do not make any representation or guarantee of their ability or reliability. Assessments by different methods or based on different information may yield different results. The Leaderboard is only a starting point to gather information about accounting professionals, and you should not rely on it to decide whether to hire an accounting professional.

I was actually on the list before? Figured I was one of the newcomers. Glad to make it though!

The leaderboard was "soft launched" over a month ago, so you were likely included in the initial user list while everything got up and running. Newcomers are those in the Top 100 who signed up in-between leaderboard releases. Glad you made it as well!

Well, I have gone from 343 to 240 as of April 29th on the #accountingtop100 list. Maybe one day I will see @drquickbooks of "always sunny" and shut down Seattle next to 99 other accountants (many of whom I know and follow) after I share a few more gifs which are supposed to help increase your rank.
