AICPA awards two Oustanding CPA in Government Awards
The American Association of CPAs has awarded Kurt Kawafuchi (Hawaii) and Robert Scott (Texas) its 2008 CPAs in Government awards. Mr. Kawafuchi has streamlined the tax process and simultaneously improved taxpayer assistance, sped up refunds and improved collections on unpaid taxes. Scott researched the Texas Municipal Retirement System and found that previous actuarial assumptions were unrealistic. As a result, employer contributions have been increased and the system is considered much more viable.
Congratulations to both winners; may many other CPAs in government find other ways to protect taxpayer dollars while providing better services to the citizens.
