The ever-changing landscape of tax and audit means it helps to rely on guidance from trusted voices. The South Carolina Association of CPAs is proud to offer as a member benefit when-you-need it instruction from nationally recognized experts.


SCACPA is excited to announce it has partnered with Melisa Galasso, CPA, of Galasso Learning Solutions. With over 15 years of experience in the accounting profession, Melisa closely monitors regulatory bodies for changes in auditing and accounting guidance and serves as a subject matter expert in implementing the updated guidance.

Melisa designs and facilitates courses in advanced technical accounting and auditing topics, including not-for-profit and governmental accounting. She also administers essential professional development, public speaking, and business skills.

Look for Melisa to be a speaker on audit topics at the SCACPA Spring Splash and Fall Fest accounting conferences in 2019 as well as many seminars and rebroadcasts.

In addition, Galasso Learning Solutions will also provide for SCACPA members audio and video blogs on changes impacting the Profession.

For samples of the course topics Melisa offers, please visit the Galasso Learning Solutions website.


With The South Carolina Tax Team, CPAs who provide tax advice and compliance services can find informed commentary on IRS actions, U.S. Tax Court decisions and legislation of interest. You can better learn how to interpret the tax code every time the Tax Team reviews the rulings and actions that are setting precedents.

Most importantly, E. Lynn Nichols, CPA, is ready to answer your questions throughout tax season. Nichols is on hand for live chats during livestream presentations and will answer comments about guidance provided in his series of recorded video demonstrations, available exclusively through the SCACPA YouTube page.

For Lynn’s comprehensive analysis of how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 changed tax law, he has recorded a three-hour video of “199A After Final Regulations”, which debuted on Feb. 15, 2019.

“What changed? That’s an important question if you prepare 2018 federal income tax returns. New tax law is not just about lower rates, it changed the tax law that will affect the 2018 returns.”
