Accounting Week in Tennessee: Sept. 20-24, 2021

September 20, 2021

In 2001, Governor Don Sundquist designated the third week in September to be “Accounting Week in Tennessee.” The resolution states, “Men and women who choose the accounting profession deserve special recognition for the vital services they bring to Tennessee taxpayers and businesses.”

As uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) continue to serve as trusted advisors to Tennessee’s business community and individual taxpayers.

“Tennessee CPAs have been essential in helping small businesses to better understand the American Rescue Plan and working alongside them to access the funds necessary to sustain their businesses. With high standards of knowledge, ethics and professionalism, it’s easy to see why CPAs are critical to Tennessee’s economic recovery,” said Kara Fitzgerald, TSCPA President & CEO. “As we work to recover, we want to recognize and celebrate Accounting Week in honor of the impact CPAs have had on their community.”
