What is the Oregon Association of Tax Consultants?
The Oregon Association of Tax Consultants (OATC), formed in 1972, is open to all tax practitioners in Oregon. The purpose of the Association is to organize tax practitioners to work toward the common goals of protecting our right to practice and to provide the education and guidance to better serve our clients.
The Oregon Association of Tax Consultants (OATC) is not associated with any
school or other profit-making group. OATC exists only to provide benefits to the taxpaying public, and to the tax professionals of Oregon.
