There is Nothing Quite Like the Scrutiny of Single Audits
It’s Time for Your Federal Tax Update!
Internet Based CPE
Publisher's Note
Rob Nance, Publisher Google, Amazon, and Proctor & Gamble’s pet care division are just a few of the dog-friendly companies across the land. Their policies go far beyond a “Take Your Pet to Work” day. I’ve always wondered how problematic this is when pizzas are delivered to the office. I once saw an Irish setter grab a large pizza box off a table at a summer picnic, pry open the box, and eat the entire pizza in about 30 seconds. It was an impressive 30 seconds.

Is your accounting firm or company dog-friendly or pet-friendly? We would really like to talk with you or someone else at your place of employment for an upcoming story on this topic. Please let me know about your workplace, even if you don’t want to participate in the article.

Guard your pizzas.
