Members like you have been working tirelessly to support small businesses and help our country’s economy. You don’t have to face these challenges alone.
Since the start of the pandemic, the AICPA has doubled down on efforts to support the profession and the work you are doing to support your clients and employers.
As your trusted member organization, we serve you, keeping you up to date with changing government guidance and ensuring you have the practical help and resources to do your job.
Advocacy and practical resources
- The government needs to support businesses and employees — we shared nine actions the government must take and we asked Congress to modernize tax provisions in response to the pandemic.
Modernizing tax provisions included allowing deductions for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) expenses and providing a small business tax credit that would allow businesses to invest in technology and support virtual offices for staff.
- You need to focus on the important work of helping businesses without having to worry about excessive deadlines. We worked to secure tax filing and payment deadline relief so you can.
- A coalition of 3.7 million businesses, collectively employing more than 78 million people and led by us, sought to protect and stabilize our nation’s economic engine during the period of crisis. The coalition recommended that PPP applicants use the gross payroll approach in calculations.
