100 Most Influential People in Tax and AccountingI am honored to be included on the list of Accounting Today's 100 Most Influential People in Tax and Accounting for the sixth year in a row. The magazine contains one-sentence explanations of why each of the folks made the list; here is mine:
In seven years, Caron has gone from an upstart exploring social media to one of the most important sources of tax news in any format, with close to 3 million visitors in 2010.
I am flattered to be on the list with such high-powered people in the tax and accounting worlds, including:
- Max Baucus (Chair, Senate Finance Committee)
- J. Russell George (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration)
- Dave Camp (Chair, House Ways & Means Committee)
- Orin Hatch (Ranking Member, Senate Finance Committee)
- President Barack Obama
