Protecting Practitioners

NSA constantly monitors developments at the Internal Revenue Service and on the Hill



NSA constantly monitors developments at the Internal Revenue Service and serves as your eyes and ears inside the IRS. Located minutes from downtown Washington D.C., NSA attends regular meetings with IRS officials, and works to influence IRS practice, procedure, and operations to promote the interests of practitioners and your clients. You can play a major role in this work by keeping NSA apprised of problems you experience in dealing with the IRS.

NSA is the leading organization protecting and enhancing the practice rights of small business accountants. At the federal level, NSA lobbies the U.S. Congress and federal agencies to support legislation to improve the tax code, lessen regulatory burdens, and promote the interests of small practitioners and their clients.

At the state level, NSA works with our affiliated state organizations to promote and protect the use of earned credentials and to safeguard your right to pursue your chosen profession. The NSA State Regulation and Oversight Committee (SROC) provides technical and other assistance to affiliates and can analyze pending legislation to assess the impact on independent accountants; help draft testimony for legislative hearings and rule making proceedings; and provide advice on lobbying tactics and strategies.
