Our current issues

New Federal conformity (Last updated 12/16/2016)
In previous years we have achieved some significant and incremental conformity to AMT and the estate tax.

New Minnesota Department of Revenue residency factors (Last updated 12/16/2016)
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.

New Taxpayer Bill of Rights (Last updated 12/16/2016)
Changes and updates to the current taxpayer bill of rights will provide some additional protections and certainty for those trying to comply with the law.

New Tort reform (Last updated 12/16/2016)
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.

State level tax preparer regulation/registration could result in CPAs needing to register in multiple states and would contradict CPA mobility regulations.
