The Latest From Our Publications


Read the December 2018 Issue on

CPAJournal.com

Once again this year, our December issue includes selected results from the annual Rosenberg Practice Management Survey. The survey includes an analysis of how New York firms differ from their counterparts across the country. There are several takeaways: revenue growth remains solid, though slowing; merger activity is up significantly; income per equity partner was up modestly overall but negligibly at medium-sized firms; the average age of partners continued a slow decline, with the exception of the largest firms; core audit, review, compilation, and write-up services faced continued pricing pressures; and the percentage of female equity partners still lags behind the percentage of female staff.

    Jan 18, 2019

    Lilly Ledbetter, a speaker at the NYSSCPA’s Women’s Leadership Conference today, made headlines when she took her employer, Goodyear, to court over years of pay discrimination. While the court ruled against her because she didn’t file her claim in time, the aftermath prompted the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law in 2014. Since then she said she has talked to many women across the world and has concluded that the kind of discrimination she experienced is a worldwide "epidemic" that won't go away unless people, especially women, actively fight.

  • Speakers: TCJA Means Treating Nonprofits More Like For-Profits
    Jan 17, 2019
    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has a number of provisions that both directly and indirectly affect not-for-profit organizations, but a pair of speakers at the Foundation for Accounting Education's 41st Annual Nonprofit Conference today said that the targeted provisions seem to focus on narrowing the gap between rules that govern non-profit and for-profit organizations.

  • Fiduciary Income Tax Planning: Income Taxation of Trusts Under the New Tax Act
    Dec 19, 2018

    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) represents a broad-based change to the U.S. tax code, touching on virtually every area of taxation, including of course fiduciary income tax.
