November 28, 2023 is #GIVING TUESDAY!
Legislative Action Fund (LAF)
CSEA advocates for the rights of both Enrolled Agents and taxpayers before all state and legislative and regulatory agencies year-round. While our continual advocacy efforts are aimed at legislation and regulation that protect the rights of EAs to practice in California, we also advocate for efficient and effective tax administration.
The Legislative Action Fund (LAF) was formed in 1985 to battle against legislative actions which might inhibit the rights of Enrolled Agents to practice their proven skills. Since then it has grown to include proactive efforts to promote legislation in support of the interests of EAs and their clients. Contributions to the LAF provide much-needed financial support for these efforts.
Charitable giving is often a major component in estate planning. Legacy giving allows you to direct and control those gifts. LAF is accepting legacy giving and has put together useful information for those interested.
