Reading Chapter Reps Needed for Berks County Partnership

Volunteers are needed to serve on the Business and Community Advocacy Council (BCAC). BCAC is a diverse group representing all business types in Berks County. The opportunity for exposure to the Berks business community is huge. The group is passionately pro-business. The BCAC agenda is to help the Berks business community work as freely and efficiently as possible. For a CPA, the opportunity to gain insight from the other businesses in the room is invaluable. It is important for us as CPAs to share with the group how we see taxes impacting the business community and offer solutions where appropriate. This group ties in well with our PICPA government affairs branch, and Peter Calcara, PICPA vice president - government relations, has very much appreciated the access our partnership with GRCA provides to local legislators.

Wilson School District BPMT 2020 Estimated Tax Reduction

As of May 18, 2020, the Wilson School Board passed a resolution to reduce the 2020 estimated MBPT tax to at least 75% of the 2019 MBPT tax liability. For taxpayers who have already filed and paid their 2020 estimated tax, a refund for 25% of the estimated tax due and paid can be obtained by completing and submitting a refund request form which can be found on the district's website.
