NSA Launches Social Network to Discuss IRS Tax Forums and Other Tax Issues


ALEXANDRIA, VA - June 28, 2011 — A new social network for tax preparers has been launched by the National Society of Accountants (NSA).

The “IRS Tax Forum Network” at www.irstaxforum.org facilitates real-time discussion among tax preparers about new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules regarding federal tax return preparation.

Much of the interaction involves the live IRS Tax Forum events taking place in six major cities across the United States this summer.

It is a free resource and open to anyone who wants to participate. Anyone can view content on the IRS Tax Forum Network, and those who want to post content, send messages, or reply to messages can create an account and profile. NSA is also encouraging speakers to blog on the site and urging people to talk about the sessions and other tax issues. Exhibitors are also invited to join the community.

When you complete a profile on the “IRS Tax Forum Network”, the system matches you up with anyone else who also selected the same forum so attendees can find and connect with each other.

 “NSA members and many other tax professionals have questions and need information about the new IRS tax preparation rules, and not all of them will be able to attend one of the live forums,” says NSA Executive Vice President John Ams. “This allows them to connect in real time, discuss their concerns, and get the answers they need.”

The Network went online in June before the first IRS Tax Forum and will remain active at least through Fall 2011. Dates and locations for the IRS Tax Forums are:

June 28-30, 2011 – Atlanta, GA

July 12-14, 2011 – Orlando, FL

July 26-28, 2011 – Dallas, TX

August 9-11, 2011 – San Jose, CA

August 16-18, 2011 –Las Vegas, NV

August 30 – September 1, 2011 – Washington, DC Area
