Let Congressional Leaders Know COVID Penalty Relief is Needed

Social Media Campaign Requests #COVIDPenaltyRelief

Sept. 7, 2021

On September 7 and 8, AICPA, the Texas Society of CPAs and several partner organizations, are launching a social media campaign to encourage individuals to share their stories. We want to know how IRS penalties have made an already difficult 2020 and 2021 even harder.

The continued push for penalty relief supports a forthcoming federal bill that offers targeted relief from the underpayment of estimated tax penalty.

Please check AICPA social media channels on Sept 7-8 for shareable content or share your own stories and tag @AICPA on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

You can also tag the @TXCPA,  IRS (@IRS), a news outlet (e.g. @WSJ), and your member of Congress (Find your member of Congress and their Twitter handle).
