The nomination period is currently closed for CPA Practice Advisor’s 2020 Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards.

Now in their 17th year, CPA Practice Advisor’s annual Tax & Accounting Technology Innovation Awards have been the pinnacle of recognition for technology vendors serving the tax and accounting profession. The awards recognize outside-the-box thinking in product development, breakthrough technologies, state of the art design and implementation, and cutting edge concepts that help accounting professionals and their clients be more productive and profitable.

AWARD SELECTION PROCESS

Each year, a total of five award winners are announced, based upon the voting of the Awards Committee. Additional technologies are also recognized as Award Finalists. The awards are not ranked or divided into categories. All nominated products and services that meet the submission requirements have the opportunity to be selected as award winners or finalists. The Awards Committee is comprised of the editorial staff at CPA Practice Advisor, thought leaders among the profession, and the publication’s Editorial Advisory Board. These members include accounting and tax professionals from across the country who are engaged in a variety of practice areas.

RULES FOR NOMINATION

Anyone can nominate a product or service for an award (vendor, user, third-party). There is a nomination processing fee of $295, which covers the costs of evaluation and logistics. Each product or service can only be nominated once. If you nominate a product or service that has already been nominated, your nomination fee will be returned. The selection process is determined by the subjective opinions of the members of CPA Practice Advisor’s Awards Committee and does not use outside votes or user testimonials during the process.

Award nominations will be initially screened for compliance with the following conditions of eligibility for the awards. Those not meeting these conditions will be removed from the nominee pool. The awards are traditionally presented at a special ceremony during the Los Angeles Accounting & Finance Show. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, the presentation of the 2020 awards may be conducted at a different venue or virtually.
