FICPA thanks Congressmen who are urging the IRS to grant additional taxpayer relief

As we move closer to federal filing deadlines, the FICPA continues to push for meaningful relief for taxpayers and practitioners from the IRS.  

Recently, 42 U.S. Senators and 65 U.S. Representatives signed a letter to Commissioner Rettig asking why the IRS has not taken certain actions, including suspending additional notices; clarifying IRS statutory authority; delaying implementation of K-2/K-3 requirements; and granting targeted penalty relief for taxpayers.  

Florida Reps. Gus Bilirakis (lead signer), Charlie Crist, Greg Steube and Daniel Webster have signed the letter urging the IRS and Treasury to implement recommendations from the AICPA and state societies that would ease the burden of this tax season. The FICPA has also reached out to Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, asking them to sign the letter as well.  

The FICPA joins the AICPA and Members of Congress in advocating for meaningful relief for taxpayers and practitioners during this tax season.  

“The IRS has acknowledged the challenges and frustrations of this tax season, and thanks to the work of our members and many others, they’ve taken steps to ease some of the burden. But we know that more can, and should, be done,” FICPA President & CEO Shelly Weir said. “We’re continuing to advocate on behalf of members alongside the AICPA, members of Congress and many other organizations to urge more significant relief.”
