    USCPA官网报道:USCPA税收执行委员会主席 Troy K. Lewis——注册会计师,全球特许管理会计师(右)与 Edward Karl——注册会计师,全球特许管理会计师,USCPA税务部门副主席,在新奥尔良州举办的USCPA春季会议上发言关于纳税人的服务需求和美国国税局“未来国家倡议”,纳税人辩护服务处在周二将会听取税收执行委员会主席 Troy K. Lewis(注册会计师,全球特许管理会计师)的发言。在解决优先级以及指导“未来国家”的发展方向上,国税局应该依赖注册会计师的独特视角来指导税收征管改革——周一,USCPA的税务部门领导在新奥尔良州举办的会议上对协会理事会成员提议。

  The Taxpayer Advocate Service will hear from USCPA Tax Executive Committee Chair Troy K. Lewis, CPA, CGMA, on Tuesday regarding taxpayers’ service needs and the IRS’s “future state initiative.” And in addressing priorities as well as directing its “future state,” the IRS should rely on CPAs’ unique vantage point to help guide tax administration and reform, the USCPA’s tax leaders told the Institute’s governing Council in New Orleans on Monday.

  Lewis和 Edward Karl(注册会计师,全球特许管理会计师,USCPA税务部门副主席)在一个名为“税收大转变”的会议上告诉理事会成员们,国会议员对USCPA的领导们表示感谢,因为他们在税务问题上发表见解,其中包括了去年由理事会确认的问题。

  Members of Congress also have thanked USCPA leaders for their insights on tax issues, including those identified by Council last year, Lewis and Edward Karl, CPA, CGMA, the USCPA’s vice president–Taxation, told Council members in a session titled “The Shifting Landscape of Tax.”

  由于不满意美国国税局给纳税人和税务专业人士提供的拙劣电话服务,以及对其过时系统也不满,促使了去年春季会议上提出的解决路径,即呼吁一个客观透明的论坛,以建议如何使国税局的功能更为现代化。为此,今年二月,Lewis连同其他会计师事务所税务委员会成员会见了国会议员们,也见了国税局专员John Koskinen。Lewis说,如同“春融”一样,让注册会计师的声音传达到决策者耳中的努力,已经初见成效。

  Dissatisfaction with the IRS’s admittedly poor telephone service in assisting taxpayers and tax professionals and its outmoded systems prompted a resolution from last year’s spring Council meeting calling for an objective, transparent forum to propose how a modernized IRS might function. To that end, in February this year, Lewis, along with other CPA tax committee members, met with members of Congress and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen (see previous coverage). Lewis said the effort appears to have led to a “spring thaw” in getting CPAs’ message through to policymakers.

  “这是我们的机会,我们要抓住它。”Lewis说。

  “It was the opportunity we had, and we were going to seize it,” Lewis said.

  Lewis继续为注册会计师们与客户发声,周二在华盛顿,他将参加一个由国家纳税人权益维护办公室的Nina Olson主持的论坛会议。该会议是收集全国各地公众、编制者还有其他利益相关者见解的其中一环——这些见解是针对长期可操作计划的,国税局将之称作“未来国家倡议”。

  Lewis has continued to provide a voice for CPAs and their clients and on Tuesday is scheduled to participate in a forum in Washington hosted by National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson. The session is one of a series around the country to gather insights from the public, preparers, and other stakeholders on the long-term operational plan the IRS refers to as its “future state initiative.”

  从最近的成员“述职”会议和面向所有USCPA成员——对接下来税收旺季,关于电话服务咨询、国税局信函、以及其他问题的更广泛调查中,Karl描述了一些初步的发现。

  Karl described some preliminary findings from both a recent “debriefing” meeting of members and a broader survey sent to all USCPA members following tax busy season that asked about telephone service, IRS correspondence, and other issues.

  “其中一点十分明确,”他说。“我们收到很多成员的来信表示,券商发行[表格]1099s的延迟,在今年是个严重问题。”USCPA对这一问题还会持续观察。在调查中一些成员也评论道,他们看到今年在解决纳税人身份盗窃问题上,出现越来越多的挑战,Karl说。

  “One thing was crystal clear,” he said. “We heard from a lot of members that the delay in brokerage houses issuing [Form] 1099s, was a big problem this year,” one that the USCPA will look into further. Some members also indicated in comments in the survey that they saw growing challenges in resolving taxpayer identity theft this year, Karl said.

  Lewis说道,在过去一年内,他在国会前提出过两次,倡导国税局扩大其保护个人身份识别号码项目。该项目目前仅提供给身份遭受过盗窃,或在三个试点地区居住的纳税人。

  Lewis said he had testified twice before Congress during the past year to advocate that the IRS expand its identity protection personal identification number program, which currently is restricted to taxpayers who can prove they have been victimized by tax ID theft or reside in one of three pilot jurisdictions.

  在纳税人身份安全方面取得的一个成功就是,据12月通过的(《2016财年综合拨款法案的Q部分》,公法114-113)《路径法案》新规定,注册会计师可以获得一定的信用;在《工资和税务报表》W-2表格中, 允许社会安全号码截断,Lewis说道。

  One success in taxpayer identity security for which CPAs can claim some credit is a new provision of the PATH Act passed in December (Division Q of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, P.L. 114-113) allowing truncation of Social Security numbers on Forms W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, Lewis said.

  “我们一直倡导了这么长时间,最终在这方面获得许可,就像银行或其他任何人,允许雇主截断纳税人的W-2报税表上的敏感信息,”他说。

  “Included in there was permission, finally, that we’ve been advocating for so long, to allow employers to truncate, just like a bank or anyone else, sensitive information on a taxpayer’s W-2,” Lewis said.

  注册会计师也可以在国会税收改革中发挥作用,两人都说。然而,实际上改革受到了阻碍,部分原因是政治动态阻碍了广泛的改革,并且很可能在今年的总统选举中继续这样做。改革进程的另一个方面是,国会已经倾向于部署以前提出的建议,即在一个被称为“得分”的过程中,提高收入来抵消支出。

  CPAs can also play a role in congressional tax reform, both men said. However, actual reform is hampered, they said, partly because political dynamics have thus far prevented broad reform—and will likely continue to do so during this presidential election year. Another aspect of the reform process is that Congress has tended to deploy previously floated proposals that raise revenue to offset spending, in a process known as “scoring.”

  “对之前的提议保持关注是十分关键的,即使早期曾经失败过。”他说。

  “It’s critical that we keep our eyes on previous proposals, even if their earlier passage failed,” Lewis said.
