More than 100 members of the Georgia Society of CPAs recently visited the state Capitol to press elected officials on legislative issues.

Attendees at the GSCPAs’s annual CPA Day shared a networking breakfast followed by an update on legislative issues. Among the politicians in attendance were Georgia Senate Finance Committee chairman Judson Hill, House Ways and Means Committee chairman Jay Powell, and each member of the Georgia CPA Caucus: Rep. David Knight, Rep. John Carson, Rep. Howard Mosby and Rep. David Wilkerson.

Hill shared his thoughts on House Bill 742, an annual update to the Internal Revenue Code, and Senate Bill 280, a bill that aims to cut the state income tax from the current 6 percent. Attendees also received a detailed presentation on fiscal notes and tax reform by Fiscal Research Center Senior Research Associate Bob Buschman.

“CPA Day makes a real connection between our members and their elected officials,” GSCPA CEO Boyd Search said in a statement. “CPAs are uniquely qualified to act as a resource to Georgia’s legislators and to provide insights on the issues that are facing the profession and those important to the business world and the general public.”
