2020 tax software survey

Featuring Alistair M. Nevius, J.D.

Hardly anything about 2020 could be considered normal, and the annual tax software survey of AICPA member tax preparers by the JofA and The Tax Adviser is no exception. For perhaps the first time ever, the survey had to couch its questions about tax season in the present tense, for the simple reason that, with the IRS's postponement until July 15 of the April 15 return due date, tax season was not yet over, as it usually is when the survey is deployed.

In this video, Alistair M. Nevius, J.D., editor-in-chief, tax -- AICPA Magazines & Newsletters, discusses results of the annual survey.
