Legislative Accomplishments

2023-2024 Session

Act 64 of 2023 incorporates the federal grantor trust provisions into Pennsylvania law, and significantly enhances tax compliance and simplifies the filing process for Pennsylvania residents. This harmony with federal standards will not only alleviate a burden on taxpayers but also contribute to a more efficient and equitable tax system for the state. Signed into law on Dec. 15, 2023. 

House Resolution 253 designates Nov. 13 through Nov. 17, 2023, as CPA Week in Pennsylvania. The resolution honors PICPA and its 20,000 members for promoting economic growth in Pennsylvania and providing important services to hundreds of thousands of taxpayers and businesses. Adopted on Nov. 14, 2023.

Rep. George Dunbar (R-Westmoreland); Peter Calcara, PICPA vice president of government relations; Rep. Keith Greiner (R-Lancaster); Jen Cryder, PICPA CEO; Rep. Ben Sanchez (D-Montgomery), and Rep. Nick Pisciottano (D-Allegheny) celebrate the passage of House Resolution 253 commemorating CPA Week and the valuable services the profession provides to the Commonwealth.
