On July 26, 2018, NAEA member Phyllis Jo Kubey, EA, CFP testified before the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Taxation and IRS Oversight at a hearing focused on IRS reform. The hearing, “Improving Tax Administration Today,” gave Phyllis the opportunity to speak on behalf of over 55,000 enrolled agents and offer a view from the tax professional community on changes needed at IRS to improve service to all who interact with the agency. Ms. Kubey stressed that IRS reform must be predicated on a stronger customer-service orientation, include necessary congressional funding and oversight, and provide authority to set minimum standards for return preparers.
