As a CPA, you’re faced with a steady stream of new regulations, laws and industry developments. There was a deluge of changes to the tax code and a flood of important court decisions that can directly impact your clients. From rulings that clarify payment of payroll taxes for reclassified workers to changes in the treatment of IRA distributions for combat troops, the tax code continues to get more complex and chock full of special provisions.

You are also responsible for meeting the complex needs of your clients and/or company in a timely manner without compromising the quality of your services.

"Many CPAs feel like it’s a full-time job just trying to keep up with all the changes,” said Sandy Levine, Vice President of Marketing Services for Bisk Education. “And in the current economic climate, with Congress passing bills and special legislation such as the Housing Assistance Tax Act, HIRE Act, Health Care, it’s crucial to have a convenient, quick way to keep pace – without taking time away from your clients."
