Assurance Manager Advocates for Virginia Tax Conformity Legislation

Brett Sinsabaugh Advocates for Tax Conformity Legislation with the VSCPA

Keiter Business Assurance and Advisory Services Manager, Brett Sinsabaugh, was featured in the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountant's (VSCPA) Member Spotlight highlighting his efforts in passing tax conformity legislation and why advocacy has always been an important part of his role with the VSCPA.


“Member Spotlight: Brett Sinsabaugh Immerses Himself in Advocacy” Excerpt:

At a relatively young age, Brett Sinsabaugh, CPA, finds himself a grizzled veteran of the VSCPA’s advocacy efforts. Now he’s putting his experience to the test in the Society’s most challenging campaign in some time.

Sinsabaugh and the VSCPA are working hard to pass tax conformity legislation for the 2018 filing season, a task made more complicated by the specter of tax reform. (The issue is still up in the air, and you can help us get it through the General Assembly using our VoterVoice tool or by joining Brett at next week's CPA Assembly Week.) But even independent of that issue, Sinsabaugh relishes the opportunity to share his knowledge with the legislators who make financial decisions that affect every Virginian.

“Being a CPA, we get the benefit of being in a specialized industry and holding such specific technical and practical knowledge and expertise, that can be used to help support certain legislation impacting the public and profession,” he said. “Our voice is important to promote CPA’s interests, educate lawmakers who make financial related legislation for their constituents, and increase awareness of issues that are important to the CPA profession.”
