100 Most Influential People in Tax and Accounting

Top 100 Cover I 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
