IRS Commends AICPA for Service to Small Businesses


The Institute received an IRS citation of excellence for helping small business taxpayers. At the National CPA/IRS Tax Issues Meeting in November, AICPA Tax Division technical manager Benson Goldstein accepted the award from Kevin Brown, commissioner of the IRS’s Small Business/Self-Employed Operating Division. The IRS applauded the Institute’s “outstanding team effort in delivering products, services and education” to small business taxpayers and said the AICPA has been instrumental in facilitating communication between its members and the service. The citation praised the AICPA for its significant contribution to the launch of the IRS’s disaster relief pilot program, noting that the Institute was the first national practitioner organization pledging to assist taxpayers at local disaster recovery centers. AICPA President and CEO Barry C. Melancon said, “This is a great tribute to our volunteer members, who have dedicated many hours of their time to participating in these programs and working with the small business community, as well as to the hard work of committed AICPA staff.”
