MNCPA Legislative Issues

Our 2016 issues

Federal conformity (Last updated 7/11/2016)
In previous years we have achieved some significant and incremental conformity to AMT and the estate tax.

Minnesota Department of Revenue residency factors (Last updated 7/11/2016)
The MN residency rules were adopted in the 1980's and are in need of updating especially with recent MN Supreme Court cases citing the location of professional advisors as a criteria.

Not for profit gambling audits (Last updated 7/11/2016)
Legislation has been introduced to eliminate the annual audit requirement for certain not for profit gambling charities.

Patent Assertion Entities - ''Patent Trolls'' (Last updated 7/11/2016)
Because Congress has not acted, more states are opting to pass laws to regulate these businesses at the state level.  Legislation in Minnesota would prohibit bad faith assertions of patent infringement.

Tort reform (Last updated 7/11/2016)
Tort reform and accountant liability statutes impact the way the CPA profession operates. It can impact your ability to work with clients or recruit perspective clients.
