You should be able to expense your AICPA membership. I do

No, if you pay for it yourself

It's like $200. Tax write off, so that's like $150 after taxes. I think it's worth it. You get good offers on life insurance and it's not that expensive.

You can get discounts on a number of things like travel, car rentals, health/life insurance, etc.

Pretty sure pwc automatically pays for your aicpa membership. Why do you pay it yourself?

Leaving next year

You don't have to pay for it. PwC will cover it for you.

Do you lose your cpa if you don't pay?

@PwC 3 🤦‍♀️

I thought it was a legit question since the state board grants the license, not AICPA

lol sorry, I did not mean to be rude. And no, you are not required to have either state or aicpa membership to have your license.

Tax question for you all. So I just received my stimulus and only got $95. At first I was confused because I made less than $60k salary for 2019 but remembered I did a Roth conversion end of December 2019 for around $25k. So it looks like they are counting that as income all for 2019 even though it is an accumulation of income from all my prior years of work. Is there anything I can do or do I just need to accept the $95 rather than the full $600?
