Press Release

NEW YORK  (June 27, 2014) – Camille Siano Enders could be considered to have one of the toughest jobs in New York State’s tax department. As the department’s Taxpayer Rights Advocate, she's paid to listen to and resolve the issues encountered by thousands of tax practitioners when advocating for for their clients. To find out how this “advocate’s advocate” can help you, attend the Foundation for Accounting Education’s Tax Planning for Individuals Conference, at the New York City Bar Association, on July 9.
In January 2013, Siano Enders was named to the position where she serves as a mediator between the state Tax Department and the taxpayer. She is only the second person to fill the post since it was established in 2009. An independent organization within the department, the Office of the New York State Taxpayer Rights Advocate is committed to helping New York State taxpayers by balancing taxpayer assistance against enforcement efforts.
The office:
  • Provides free and independent assistance to taxpayers.
  • Assists taxpayers whose tax problems are causing undue economic harm.
  • Helps taxpayers who have been unable to resolve protracted tax problems through regular channels.
“Now that the office is well-established and a great team is in place, my job is to further its work. One of my first priorities has been to increase the accessibility of the office to taxpayers who are not yet aware of our services,” she said in a 2013 interview the New York State Society of CPAs’ Trusted Professional newspaper.
New tax laws equal new tax strategies that keep even the best accounting and legal experts hard-pressed to keep updated. Thus conference organizers, members of the New York State Society of CPAs, have a planned a full-day of speakers, workshops and updates on several other hot button tax issues including:
  1. Generational Wealth Transfer
  2. Tax Effects of Obamacare
  3. International Tax Issues related to FATCA
  4. Retirement Planning Issues
The conference will be held from 8:15 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the NYC bar association’s offices at 42 West 44th Street. The event will also be available via a live webcast.
