Einhorn Named Tax Executive Committee Chair


Alan R. Einhorn, national director of the Quality Assurance Group for Deloitte Tax LLP, is the new chair of the Institute’s Tax Executive Committee.

Einhorn’s work with Deloitte includes ethics and professional standards and taxpayer and preparer responsibilities. He is also involved in coordinating the firm’s tax quality assurance reviews and reviewing the firm’s tax quality assurance guidance.

Einhorn began volunteering at the Institute in 1987. Highlights include his three-year chairmanship for the AICPA Tax Forms Committee, his membership on the Tax Practice Responsibilities Committee and his work for numerous task forces. He had been a member of the Tax Executive Committee four years before becoming chair.

Einhorn received the AICPA Tax Section Distinguished Service Award for 2007–2008 for his efforts to urge Congress to equalize the standards for taxpayers and tax preparers.

The Tax Executive Committee establishes tax policy for the Institute and functions as a clearinghouse for the work produced by other AICPA tax committees and technical resource panels regarding technical and administrative issues that affect taxpayers.
