Top 100 Must-Follow Tax Twitter Accounts For 2018

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Some of the best conversations about tax and tax reform in 2017 weren’t found in conference rooms or the halls of Congress: They were on Twitter. Twitter is a great way to stay on top of tax news, tax information, and tax policy all over the world. You can instantly share links, data, policy updates, and photos – or simply lurk and watch your feed (though it’s certainly more fun when you engage). Think of it like a virtual cocktail party: you can network and exchange stories at your convenience – only you don’t have to dress up if you don’t want to.

Just in time for the new year, here are the top 100 must-follow tax Twitter accounts for 2018:
