Created with a Commitment

MSATP was founded in 1959 when proposed legislation threatened to limit the recognition and resources to those practicing accounting. Since then, we have worked hard to provide advocacy and education to a wide range of members including CPAs, EAs, CFPs, accountants, bookkeepers, and tax preparers.
