Top Tax Experts to Follow on Twitter

The massive set of changes to the tax code passed in late 2017 gave the accounting community a lot to chew on. In fact, several months after the changes, tax experts across the country still are finding new wrinkles and analyzing what everything means to individuals, charities, and businesses large and small. And many of these conversations are happening on social media.

Some of the best places to find a regular source of in-depth commentary are on tax blogs like these 10 we’ve featured. But small business owners can also find a lot of insight from various tax experts on Twitter – many of whom dole out both short-form information in tweets, as well as links to longer explanations about more complex tax issues.

The following are some tax experts to follow on Twitter to stay up on the latest tax news and insights.
