The 4pm Annual Meeting is followed by the installation of officers and directors. We are sorry that the current situation prevents us from physically meeting. MaSEA continues to work to support all members.
At the MaSEA Annual Meeting, Dave Tolleth, (Phd, EA, NTPI Fellow, and past president of NAEA & NJSEA), will deliver the NAEA update. His message provides an essential foundation for the MaSEA Strategic Plan. His message is also important to every NAEA member to understand the initiatives and deliverables of our national association.
The keynote address this year is delivered by the President of the Center for Taxpayer Rights Keith Fogg. Before retiring from Harvard Law School Professor Fogg won a unanimous decision from the US Supreme Court and against the IRS. Boechler Law Firm in Fargo, ND was assessed $19,250 in penalties for problems with its 2012 tax filing and filed a late Tax Court petition. The US Supreme Court reversed lower court decisions and allows that a taxpayer with good reason is allowed to file late. Due to this ruling much litigation is expected to follow with regards to expiration date statutes. Not only are participants allowed a review of the case as it evolved, but also insights as to ramifications of what will come. One free IRS CPE is available from this presentation.
I encourage members to attend the annual meeting, celebrate the accomplishments of the year gone by and welcome our newly elected Board of Directors. The current board worked well this year to better serve the membership. The group kept a focus on the best interests of the Society. The MaSEA Board of Directors is excited to share the details of several grEAt upcoming FY23 planned events. The complete agenda and registration information will be on our MaSEA website.
Note that the Annual Meeting itself is free to all members. Please register prior to June 5th for the annual meeting to assist us with the Zoom capabilities. Information about Zoom event and login credentials will be sent out in advance of the meeting. Please log on around 3:55 pm to make sure everything is working. We are sorry that we will not be holding education events on this day but please watch for new programs in the near future.
I look forward to meeting everyone at the event.
