The 100 Most Influential People In Tax And Accounting

Top 100I am honored to be included on the list of Accounting Today's 100 Most Influential People in Tax and Accounting for the tenth year in a row:

In the years since Caron was one of the few pioneering tax bloggers, a veritable host of others have sprung up, but none can match his authority, his comprehensive approach, or his willingness to doggedly, persistently pursue the long-term unfolding of the scandal around the IRS's targeting of conservative groups.

Accounting Today also quoted me in a sidebar on "The Quest for Work-Life Balance":

I fear that I have achieved work-life balance because work is my life! But seriously, it is a gift to be able to do a job that you love, so that the time you spend does not feel like “work.”

I am flattered to be on the Top 100 list with such high-powered people in the tax and accounting worlds, including:

  • Tim Christian (Incoming Chair, AICPA)
  • James Doty (Chair, PCAOB)
  • Lynne Doughtie (Chair & CEO, KPMG)
  • Cathy Engelbert (CEO, Deloitte)
  • George Farrah (Executive Editor, Tax & Accounting, Bloomberg BNA)
  • J. Russell George (Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration)
  • Russell Golden (Chair, FASB)
  • Orin Hatch (Chair, Senate Finance Committee)
  • Stephen Howe (Managing Partner, EY)
  • John Koskinen (Commissioner, IRS)
  • Barry Melanson (President & CEO, AICPA)
