"The liaison dinners are a terrific opportunity!
The types of questions asked and the
responses given provide great insight into
the thought processes and decision-
making criteria of the practitioners as well
as the taxing authorities."
Kathie Sumrow
CSCPA Federal Income Tax Committee member
"I've been attending these dinner meetings
for several years and always find value in
the opportunity to network not only with
peers dealing with various IRS matters, but
also with IRS representatives with insight
and knowledge of the IRS viewpoint on
some of these very same issues."
