Excel Self-study: 16 Hour Package
The Best of the Best in Blogs
Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor Just in time for the end of Busy Season, aka the beginning of The Rest of The Year, we here at AccountingWEB have discovered that next week is National Organize Your Files Week. There was some debate among our bloggers as to whether National Organize Your Files Week should follow (as it does) or precede National Archive Your Files Month (February), as well as discussion about initiating a National Burn Your Files Week to encourage participation in the paperless office trend (although itís possible that might conflict with National Donít Pollute Month), but in the end, we opted for focusing on organization, or perhaps embracing the disorganization. There are other timely topics addressed by our bloggers as well. The AccountingWEB Bloggers Crew is made up of experts from all corners of accountancy and accounting technology. You can stay on top of trends and news and hear what the experts have to say when you follow the AccountingWEB bloggers.

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
Managing Editor

Well my friends, we are getting close to the end of tax season. Just a few hundred minutes left until midnight, April 15.
