Let’s talk about something that’s been making headlines recently—the shortage of qualified accountants in the world of corporate taxation.

Taxes are already a labyrinth riddled with intricate tax codes and state-specific regulations. But this challenge is further compounded by the current shortage of accounting staff plaguing businesses across the country.

Tupperware, the company that revolutionized your kitchen storage, had to delay their annual report due to a lack of accountants. However, this scenario is not unique to Tupperware. About 70 companies have postponed their annual reports this year, a 40% increase from last year. This trend underscores the urgent need for a solution that can address this problem effectively and efficiently.

This is where tax managed services, such as those offered by DMA, come into play.
