Ethics has long been considered a cornerstone of the accounting profession. But just how new accountants are to be trained in ethics and how ethical behavior is to be enforced in practice are difficult questions that continue to vex regulators and professional thought leaders.

    Jun 29, 2022
    In response to the Federal Reserve’s recent efforts to cool inflation by raising interest rates, the higher cost of obtaining mortgages has slowed down the housing market. The increases have added hundreds of dollars a month to the typical mortgage payment in a market where home prices have already been skyrocketing, meaning that some potential homeowners can no longer afford to buy.

    Jun 27, 2022
    Issuing her midyear report to Congress, National Taxpayer Advocate Erin M.

    Jun 24, 2022
    Major U.S. banks have been cooperating with the Department of Treasury in its efforts to prevent cyberattacks by engaging in a simulation exercise involving role play and shared information. The concern arises from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine; Treasury believes that Russia could engage in a cyberattack against U.S. banks. And even if minor banks or third-party service providers are targeted, such an attack could imperil everyone in a highly connected system.

Recently, there has been a series of changes related to states expanding their sales tax.
