AICPA members staff USA Today hotline. (CPE news).
Congratulations and thank you to the CPAs who made this year's Web-based USA Today tax hotline a big success. CPAs from across the country went online from their offices to answer tax questions from the paper's readers on Mar. 7 and 8. The paper added a related component this year--a tax chat with a CPA each Friday for the month preceding the hotline. Questions about the 2001 tax rebate topped the list of readers' inquiries. Other questions asked by many taxpayers related to stock losses, charitable deductions and pension plans. The resulting coverage in the Money section of the newspaper on Mar. 8 splendidly showcased the CPA profession in a nationwide print publication that is read by more than two million Americans each day. The AICPA coordinates staffing of the hotline. For more information, contact Shirley Twillman at 202/434-9220 or e-mail email@example.com.
