Were You a Tax Hero This Season?
There are many definitions for what a hero is—from the obvious person who runs into a burning building, to the everyday hero that goes out of their way to help someone in need. Were you a tax hero this season or know someone that was? Did you put everything aside to help a client at the last minute, volunteer in the community as a tax professional or have someone help you out that you were grateful for this tax season? Was NATP part of your story? I want to hear about it. We may even feature your story in future editions of Chapter News. Email your story to me at email@example.com.
California: Are you following us on Facebook? We've got big ideas for our page, you don't want to miss out!
Florida: First, catch up with your sleep—then think about coming to Daytona Beach for up to 16 hours of CPE, May 18-19. Read all about it in the April newsletter.
If you've never attended a Florida NATP Conference, there's still time to sign up for a free registration to hear Beanna Whitlock in Daytona. See pages 10 and 11 in the newsletter. Your Chapter Board members are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new ones in Daytona.
See you there!

New Jersey: The NJ Board is excited to announce the dates and topics for our May and June seminars.
The May 16 seminar will be held at The Hotel ML on Route 73 in Mount Laurel. We will spend our morning with Patrick McCormick, Esq. He will cover international taxation, including residency issues, applicable tax treaties, an overview of FBAR and penalty assessment and finally planning options for those with international ties. The afternoon will be a line by line explanation of the PA 40 and related forms presented by Kathryn Bowman from our neighboring state of Pennsylvania. It will be a very informative day and will provide 4 CPE.
June 8 will see us getting together in Iselin at APA Hotel Woodbridge. This will be a full day of learning the ins and outs of Partnership Returns presented by our own Marilyn Ayers and Sherril Diamond. What better way to review all the issues that we came across during this tax season when our clients brought in their new partnership venture. Hope to see many of you at one or both of these educational opportunities.
