CPAs Go Online for USA Today Tax Hotline.
Congratulations and thank you to the CPAs who made this year's USA Today tax hotline, in its new, Web-based format, a rousing success. CPAs went online from their offices during the paper's live hotline on Mar. I to answer tax questions from more than 800 readers. CPAs also worked "behind the scenes" to answer questions e-mailed to them by USA Today staff. The hottest topics included questions about stock losses, stock dividends, education credits and pension plan income. The resulting coverage on the front page and in the Money section of the newspaper the next day 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. CPAs interested in volunteering for next year should contact Shirley Twillman at 202/434-9220 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
