Thank you to everyone who planned, attended, sponsored and presented at the 2020 TXCPA Annual Tax Conference on Tuesday, November 10 & Wednesday, November 11, 2020. Due to COVID-19, this normally live event was moved to a virtual platform and our committee scrambled to rework the entire conference in a short period of time. The reviews were fantastic and we’re thrilled TXCPA members from across the state were able to participate. We look forward to working on next year’s event!
And what a lineup! We had nine wonderful speakers on a variety of topics, including Steven J. Tillinger’s famous Federal Tax Update for the first time. Thank you to all the presenters who make this event bigger and better each and every year!
