As the CEO of www.taxconnections.com, and an internationally recognized expert in executive search for tax professionals, I want to alert you to important trends we are observing in our retained executive search services division. Most tax executives we work with generally do not respond to online ads or submit their resumes to resume portals when companies have an open tax role. Tax professionals are generally not comfortable sending their resume into a resume portal to an unknown person only to receive an automated messaging system and never to be heard from again. They value their privacy when it comes to considering other opportunities. This trend places companies at a huge disadvantage when searching for corporate tax expertise for their organizations.

Will it pass? We don’t know and can’t predict. The only thing we can be sure of is that whether the MFA passes or not, sales tax nexus is and will continue to be a very relevant, complex issue demanding attention by businesses large and small and their CPAs.
False Belief Number One: If The Marketplace Fairness Act Passes, Everyone Will Have Nexus Everywhere. Nexus Will Be Obsolete.
We are actually hearing this statement in one form or another from many CPAs and other professionals. While we could agree that the physical presence aspect of nexus has been under pressure since the Quill case and that the pressure appears to be increasing every year, we can not agree that nexus would be obsolete. The MFA still has many questions that need to be answered. For example, if the MFA does pass in the House, what modifications will be made and what will the final version look like? Will all the states participate? What will be the minimum threshold? Read more
