Tax News says goodbye to our longtime Editor April 2021 Tax News

Elinor Bickell, FTB’s longtime Tax News Editor, is moving to a new position within FTB. Elinor has been the Tax News Editor for over 12 years now and the entire Tax News Staff wishes her much success in her new role as an Information Technology Specialist.

Elinor accomplished many things with Tax News by focusing on the wants and needs of the tax professional community. She built relationships with internal business areas, IRS and our sister state taxing agencies, and external stakeholders. Elinor developed innovative ways to reach our tax professionals through new mediums such as Tax News “Flashes,” social networks, and short informational videos. During her tenure, Tax News subscribership increased from 8,000 to 36,000 tax professionals, received internal accomplishment awards, and gained external recognition.

Elinor’s shoes will be difficult to fill. Thank you Elinor for a job well done!
