The AICPA recently submitted comments

regarding administrative relief for Section

the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).
The AICPA recommends that Treasury
and the IRS:
■ Provide a process to obtain relief for late

tions 965(i) and 965(h) upon the triggering
event of a section 965(i) election;
■ Allow reasonable cause or section 9100
relief for late filed or incomplete transfer
agreements under section 965(i)(2); and
■ Provide a process to obtain relief for late
or incomplete elections under section
965(h). ■

AICPA THANKS HOUSE
SPONSORS OF FSN RESOLUTION
The AICPA has announced
its strong support for the
bipartisan H. Con. Res. 68,
the Fiscal State of the Nation
resolution introduced by
Representatives Kathleen
Rice (D-N.Y.) and Andy Barr
(R-K.Y.) with 102 additional
co-sponsors.
AICPA believes that
the consolidated federal
financial statements and the

Government Accountability
Office (GAO)'s audit report
provide valuable information
on the financial condition
of the federal government,
but obstacles remain that
the government has not
yet overcome, preventing
the GAO from rendering
an opinion on the federal
consolidated financial statements. ■

· Ryane William Hoffman, Manhattan High School, Kansas State University
· Jack Andrew Horoho, Warsaw Community High School, Purdue University
- West Lafayette
· Thomas Lutter, Lower Moreland High School, University of Delaware
· Daniel Molyneaux, Kiski Area High School, University of Pittsburgh
· Megan Wegner, Port Washington High School, University of Wisconsin - Madison
The AICPA Foundation will again be offering scholarships for the 2020-2021 school
year, with details through www.StartHereGoPlaces.com starting on December 1, 2019.
