Nominees for the 2013 Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards

Meet the Nominees for the 2013 Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards

Nominations for CPA Practice Advisor’s 10th annual Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards are now closed. Over the past decade, the Innovation Awards have become the pinnacle of recognition for technology vendors serving the tax and accounting profession.

Presented each year at the California Accounting & Business Show and Conference in Los Angeles, the Awards honor technologies that have the potential to significantly impact the tax and accounting profession. This can be through improved client service or internal firm workflow processes, or via technologies designed for small businesses that enhance client productivity or collaboration.

Each year, a total of five Innovation Award Winners and five Innovation Award Finalists are recognized based upon judging by the Awards Committee, which is comprised of the editorial staff at CPA Practice Advisor, thought leaders among the profession, and the publication’s Editorial Advisory Board. Board members include accounting and tax professionals from various sized firms across the country who are engaged in a variety of practice areas.

The awards are not ranked or divided into categories. Instead, all nominated products and services that meet the submission requirements have the opportunity to be selected for any of the five awards. 

The nomination period for the Innovation Awards will be open until early April, and this page will be updated periodically to allow professionals to see what technologies are being considered for this year’s awards. More information on the nomination process, or to make a nomination, is at:
