Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor We're getting ready for a new year on AccountingWEB, wrapping up the year-in-review and clearing our offices and desks for our own upcoming busy season. Our bloggers are winding down the year as well, and several of these voices of AccountingWEB have chimed in with their own type of online holiday caroling in the form of last-minute thoughts to carry you through to the new year.

More than two dozen experts from various areas of the accounting profession around the globe form the members of AccountingWEB's Bloggers Crew, sharing their insights, expertise, and personal experiences on a regular basis with our readers and encouraging your response. This e-newsletter includes a small sample with some ideas and advice to share with you as you prepare for the year ahead. Best wishes from all of our bloggers, and we'll see you in 2011!

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
Finally, a Viable Alternative to QuickBooks Accountants World
There are a host of reasons you may not want to use QuickBooks®. But until now, you probably felt like you had no alternative. Not anymore. Welcome to award-winning Accounting Relief.
Sally Glick: 'Tis the season to be jolly!
Most of you are probably plowing through mounds of holiday cards or watching your inbox fill up with e-cards. Yet the holiday season affords us the opportunity to spread good will and reach out to the business community with a different approach than any other time during the year.
Allan Boress: 'Tis the season to fire clients!
Gift giving is one of the major ways our firm motivates and retains quality employees and clients. One of the best gifts we give our people is firing clients. Who do we select, how are they chosen, and how is the separation executed?

Presented by John Springfield, MCP, PMC, CCH Product Manager, Workflow Solutions
Hosted by Gail Perry, CPA, Editor-in-Chief, Sift Media
This session will discuss how firms can further increase efficiency by leveraging technology. With a digital workflow, firms can retrieve and send a file to a client right away eliminating phone calls, and endless searches for the proper documents.
Maria Calabrese: Wish lists of employees
Every employer tries to make his or her employees happy by giving them what they want (within reason). Employers welcome new ideas and thinking outside of the box. And, boy, do these ideas fall into the "thinking way outside of the box" category.
Brian Strahle: State and local tax year-end planning
As your company or clients discuss year-end planning, I want to remind you that this is a good time to address state and local tax issues and opportunities.

Leita Hart-Fanta: More toys for the police
It is political suicide to tell the police chief that he can't have a new toy that will shave a few seconds off of emergency response time. But I have to wonder if we are paying too high a price for this service in dollars and in privacy.
William Brighenti: IRS is on its way to see who's been naughty and nice
You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout, I'm telling you why: The IRS is coming to town. He's making a list, and checking it twice. He's gonna find out who's naughty and nice.
