The first session of Team Tax is next week and we’re proud to be bringing you up to date, relevant CPE with speakers from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. The CPE team is working on printing the Tax Guide participants will receive.

SCACPA is the only organization in the state the protects and promotes the CPA profession. With tax season quickly approaching, we’re going to be kicking off a campaign to spread awareness about the differences between an accountant and a CPA, and why choosing a CPA is a smart long-term financial decision. We know choosing a CPA is the right decision, don’t you?
