Details and Agenda

Join Pittsburgh Chapter's New and Improved Tax Committee!

In an effort to increase member engagement, the former Local Taxation and Government Committee has been restructured. Renamed "Tax Committee," this entity will have four focus subgroups: Federal Tax, State/Local Tax, Non-Profit Tax, and International Tax.

The Executive Committee is planning new initiatives in each of these areas, and has already planned for a tax expert from Montreal to give an update on Canadian federal income tax. More details about this event coming soon!

If you are interested in joining the new and improved Tax Committee or have questions, please contact Kristen Nixon at knixon@picpa.org.
