The Kentucky Department of Revenue (KYDOR) frequently sends out notices to taxpayers that they owe additional taxes because a particular expense or itemized deduction has been disallowed, for example. This is a frustrating practice for tax professionals and taxpayers alike for many reasons; mainly because it is often more cost effective for our clients to pay the tax than pay our fees to protest or respond to these notices. It is the reality we all know and live by, as does the KYDOR.

A powerful new artificial intelligence (AI) bot, ChatGPT, is causing quite a stir in the business world, including in the accounting profession. Using a wide range of internet data, ChatGPT can help users answer questions, write articles, program code, and engage in in-depth conversations on a substantial range of topics. What makes ChatGPT sensational to some, besides the headlines of it passing the Bar Exam, various medical exams, and MBA exams, is its ability to hold human-like conversations with users. Essentially, AI developers designed neural networks in the technology to function similarly to the human brain. Because language is full of nuances and contextual differences, earlier versions of AI programs had not achieved as much success in this area. This article looks at what the bot does well, and what it does not.

I have heard and read news reports about ChatGPT and decided that I would try it out for the first time. I searched ChatGPT in my Google search and it directed me to openai.com. It asked me to create a login and then under the product tab I selected ChatGPT. I was working on The Kentucky CPA Journal so I decided to ask the question "What is the biggest challenge for CPAs in the United States for 2023?" Read on to see the answer it provided.
