The Michigan Women's Tax Association

The Michigan Women's Tax Association ("MWTA") was founded in July 2006, when a group of tax lawyers, accountants and tax professors came together and formed the non-profit organization.


Our Mission is to provide educational and networking opportunities for women in the Michigan tax community, and to promote the full and active participation of women within all tax-related areas in the state. We are a diverse group of CPAs and accountants, tax lawyers, professors, government officials, students, and members of Michigan industry.

We offer our annual conference in October, two holiday luncheons for tax professionals, two CPE ethics seminars in May with locations in the Detroit and Grand Rapids areas. MWTA also invites members and friends to several wine and cheese events at various law firms, accounting firms and other venues in the Detroit and Grand Rapids to benefit The Michigan Women's Tax Foundation which offers annual scholarships to women pursuing further education in the field of tax.

This year we have partnered on several events with the MICPA.

MWTA is a growing organization, and is committed to supporting the professional efforts of "tax" women across the state.
