NJCPA Leaders Meet with New Jersey Congressional Delegation

Last week, leaders from the NJCPA met with nine members of the New Jersey Congressional Delegation or their staff to discuss the pressing issues facing the accounting profession.

The topics discussed included efforts to: 

  • Address current customer service levels at the IRS, which have reached the lowest level in decades.
  • Provide taxpayers with targeted COVID-19 tax penalty relief from the underpayment of estimated tax penalty and late payment penalty for the 2020 tax year
  • Grant the IRS authority to issue disaster relief in a timely manner in response to state-declared disasters
  • Recognize accounting as a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) profession
  • Support legislation that requires the Comptroller General to make an annual presentation to a joint meeting of the House and Senate Budget Committees. The Comptroller would discuss the United States Financial Statements so that members of Congress understand the country’s true fiscal position, not just the annual budget.

We look forward to continuing our meetings with the New Jersey Congressional Delegation and will keep you posted on any developments.
