Tax Blogs

best-tax-blogs-700x500I hope, as a CPA working in public accounting, you are reading several blogs on a regular basis.

I also hope that your accounting firm is writing a tax-focused blog for your clients. CPA firms have so many knowledgeable tax professionals who have so much to share.

WalletHub wants to find the “best” blogs and has identified 50 finalists, from industry titans like TurboTax to one-person dynamos like the Tax Girl.

Although I do not blog about tax, I do blog about running a successful, growing, profitable tax practice. So, I have been included in the 50 finalists.

If you find value in my blog and want to vote for me, you can vote here.

If nothing else, look over the various finalists and see who you want to follow in the future!

Self-Improvement From Reading Blogs

Some things haven’t changed. People better themselves by reading. Yes, books but these days it definitely includes blogs and other online business resources.

I know you want your team members to continually learn, advance, and improve – you know, “sharpen the saw” as noted by  Habit 7 from Stephen R. Covey.

blogger_logoSuggest a few bloggers for them follow. Don’t know who to suggest? I bet your team members already know several that help them with their career – ask them.

Here’s an idea – Check out a blog on HBR written by Bryan Garner, a leading authority on writing, usage, grammar and style. Most CPAs could improve their writing skills and might learn some things from a blog like this.

Here’s a listing of top tax blogs.

The resources are endless…… take advantage of them.

You Are What You Read – CPA Leadership Report

I always want to be sure you, as a key person inside your CPA firm, are reading, reading, reading. Of course I mean CPA practice management articles, newsletters, and blogs. But I also strongly encourage you to read about a VERY wide variety of topics – anything that interests you.

For example, reading an issue of National Geographic while on an airplane gave me an idea for a recent blog post, Public Accounting Doesn’t Need Princesses.  I get a lot of ideas (and helpful information) from FAST Company magazine and from their online presence. Check-out my post titled, Expand Your Universe, where I encourage you to  become more creative. I reference the FAST Company blog post, Desks, Where Creativity Goes To Die.

One of the best sources of current reading and trends in CPA leadership is CPA Leadership Institute. Are you a member?

CPA Leadership Report is the monthly review of the most important management and leadership articles in the accounting press. It includes electronic links to publishers’ websites, where you can find the original, complete articles. Their editors review more than 35 publications every month and present them to you in one spot.

I wanted to remind you about this because CPA Leadership Institute is providing a discount if you join before the end of April.
