The continuation of the federal government shutdown has caused much uncertainty for CPAs and taxpayers alike. Because the federal government is still partially inactive, NCACPA wanted to provide a few resources and links to help guide CPAs and taxpayers through this unprecedented busy season.
Included is a blog post that helps reinforce practitioners’ messages to clients to continue gathering and preparing tax information, despite shutdown uncertainties. You’ll also find an article about the recent IRS announcement regarding penalty relief.
