Volunteers needed for 2002 USA today tax hotline.

CPA volunteers are needed to staff the USA Today tax hotline on Thursday, Mar. 7, 2002. Each year the national newspaper and the AICPA team up for a tax hotline that offers readers an opportunity to get immediate answers from the tax experts. CPAs get the chance to provide a valuable public service during tax season, and the profession is showcased through coverage of the event in the following day's paper.

The paper will again use the Web-based format it used for the 2001 hotline. USA Today notifies its readers of the upcoming tax hotline in the newspaper and on its Web site and invites them to e-mail their questions to the paper. Volunteers who work the live online "chat" are asked to answer questions online for an hour from their own computers. Other CPAs participate by answering readers' questions e-mailed to them by USA Today staff before the hotline takes place. These questions and answers help form the newspaper's follow-up story on Friday.
