    Hello fellow Members! Happy Holidays from all of us at the MASEA Board! What a year! We have had ups and downs, some sadness and some joy! As the year comes to an end, I wanted to reflect on how technology has helped us keep in touch with our families, each other, and clients. Zoom, seems to be the saving grace this year, as technology moves us forward into the 21st Century! Netflix entertained some of us, others learned new hobbies like playing a guitar or some of us read awesome books.

    Thank you front line workers for being there for us! I personally have family that put their lives at risk every day to make the world a safer place for us. Where would we be without these brave folks?

    I want to say that Thirsty Thursdays have been a success for the last three months. Once a month we get to spend a little time together and meet each other and I have enjoyed meeting members, who I may not have had the chance to meet otherwise.

    The Zoom Thirsty Thursdays have allowed people from across Massachusetts to meet other members and talk about interesting topics. We get together on Zoom in a casual atmosphere. You can drink from the safety of your own home and not worry about driving. We have had exciting conversations about cats, dogs, employees, kids, vacations, and shared many war stories about clients. Some of these stories might even make great material for standup comedians or sitcoms. It is not just business as usual, it’s a relaxing social event.

    I invite you all to join us in the new year to discover what Thirsty Thursday is all about. Once again, I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Great New Year! 

    Please remember to stay positive and test negative!!!!!

    Every year the United States Tax Court allows members of the MaSEA to attend a live Tax Court calendar call. A truly exciting experience for all because some judges will conduct a brief Q&A for our members at the end of the session. This provides for an outstanding volunteer experience in which our members gain valuable knowledge of proceedings.

    Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the United Tax Court will not allow live sessions this year in Boston. All sessions will be held virtually.  We have reached out to the United State Tax Court for directions on how to proceed this year and they prefer that members wishing to attend the United State Tax Court, do so by listening to a live audio stream of the United States Tax Court Calendar call held on November 2.  

    We have provided a link for anyone who wishes to attend. Click here to access the audio stream.
