John E. Van Allen recently served as a featured speaker for a webinar hosted by the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (“PICPA”).  The webinar discussed how Act 52 of 2013 affected the Board of Finance and Revenue (“Board”).  John was joined on a panel by a new Board member and others.  The panel addressed procedural changes for practice before the Board, the new role of the Department of Revenue, the hearing process and new rules regarding Board decisions and orders.

The webinar also served as an opportunity for the panel to discuss the opportunity for attorneys and CPAs to jointly represent clients before the Board, particularly the opportunity for CPAs to act as expert witnesses.
