Tax Professional Success: 3 Reasons Tax Reputations Rise  

Kat Jennings, TaxConnections CEO

With years of experience educating tax professionals how to succeed in the tax profession, I learned a lot building www.taxconnections.com. What I want to share with you are the three strategies to focus on that will have a huge impact on your tax professional career. Implementing these strategies will have you rising above the competition. There is a saying  “evolve or get fossilized” and it is the perfect reminder that a new generation tax advisor is evolving online. There are tax professionals making smart marketing moves online and you need to learn who is out in front and how they do it.

Here are the actions tax professionals take that are having a huge impact on their tax careers and future in the profession.

Write Tax Blog Posts – Tax professionals writing and posting blogs are getting all the attention from readers. Our readers are hungry for tax posts that are educating them.  Blogging is an ideal way to educate others and build relationships with a steady stream of prospective new clients and fans. Blogging opens minds and doors for you; greatly increases referral business and it builds trust for your tax expertise. Tax professional bloggers who draw the most attention write in a language people can understand. Many of the Fortune 500 to Fortune 5000 CFOs and CEOs who have retained me to find them a tax expert have asked me privately “Find a tax professional who can explain tax issues in a manner I can understand.” TaxConnections does an excellent job of positioning our members who write blogs right in front of corporate executives around the world.

Tax Professionals – Tax Question Of The Week

Each Friday we publish a tax question from one of our site visitors who arrive from more than 190 countries and territories around the globe. This week we have an interesting question for our tax professional members with international experience.

“We are a trading company located in Bahrain. Most of our purchases are from UAE and payments via Telex Transfer. After implementation of TAX in UAE, suppliers are adding 5% Tax in our invoice and we are forced to include this amount in TT.

We cannot charge this money to our customers because we are not in UAE. Are we considered as the end user in UAE TAX LAW? Is there is any chance of exemption?”
Please provide your comments below to the CEO who seeks the help of our tax professional members. We greatly appreciate your insight.

Corporate Tax Provision: Want To Know What Financial Statement Auditors Have Increased Their Focus On?

Webinar, Corporate Tax Provision

(Complimentary Webinar – Friday, July 20th 2018 at 8:00AM PDT)

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to learn from one of the most knowledgeable corporate tax provision instructors in the country.  TaxConnections brings you another webinar on the corporate tax provision with Nick Frank, Tax Prodigy CEO as the instructor. 

With the enactment of the Tax Cuts And Jobs Act there are three areas that tax professionals need to prepare and focus on since there is increased focus from auditors. We know this because we are talking to companies who are informing us of these trends. Here are three areas Nick will prepare you for given the increased attention by the Auditors on them:

  1. Uncertain Tax Benefits – Expect more uncertain tax benefits arising from the uncertainty around the operation of the new law.
  2. States – States are going to be more significant and there will be more variation between states as they adopt different parts of the Tax Cuts And Jobs Act.
  3. SOX Controls – For most companies, the Tax Cuts And Jobs Act will cause the most significant changes in the process ever. Companies need to demonstrate that adequate controls are in place and that changes were made appropriately and accurately.

This complimentary webinar is specifically for corporate tax professionals or for tax professionals in CPA firms doing the tax provision as an outsourced provider. Attend this webinar and you  will more prepared than other professionals who will be scrambling to catch up later this year.

July 4th – Independence Day In The United States

Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July is a U.S. Federal Holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies at the time (Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts Bay, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations) regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence. Here is what John Hancock said:

“We must be unanimous; there must be no pulling different ways; we must hang together”. ~ John Hancock, July 4, 1776
