MSATP is dedicated to creating and fostering an environment where
small to mid-size accounting firms and tax professionals can thrive.

We do this in three ways:

Community Building

MSATP works to build relationships amongst members by hosting networking events, publishing job opportunities, connecting those looking to buy or sell their practice, and more.


From courses about starting and growing your business, regulatory ethics, tax laws, and exam preparation, we offer a variety of programs that meet CPE requirements and build competency.


We are actively committed to protecting the rights of Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents, Registered Tax Preparers, and other accounting, bookkeeping, and tax preparation providers at the federal, state, and local level.

The Power of Membership

We offer a variety of membership subscriptions to match the unique needs of our community. Whether you are a principal, associate, student, or educator, find out how membership can enrich your career and support your professional goals. Learn More ›

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.
