Oct. 22 — The American Institute of CPAs will continue to push Congress to pass extenders legislation as one of its top priorities in the weeks ahead, the incoming chairman of the AICPA's Tax Executive Committee told Bloomberg BNA in an interview.
The AICPA announced Oct. 22 that Troy K. Lewis, a CPA and chartered global management accountant, is taking the helm of the committee and will head the AICPA Tax Section during a two-year term.
