New York CPAs Contribute Time to Disaster Victims

Members from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants have set up an information table at 110 Maiden Lane, part of the downtown New York area disaster relief center.

According to Franklin H. Federmann, CPA, head of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) Special Disaster Task Force and a member of the Society’s Board of Directors, CPAs will man the table each day to answer questions regarding insurance, tax returns, pensions, small business start-up, and they will help victims complete Federal forms.

Those who cannot go to 110 Maiden Lane may call the NYSSCPA Hot Line at 800-NYSSCPA and they will be contacted by a CPA.

"CPAs are anxious to share their expertise in these financial areas with those businesses and individuals in need now." said Federmann. "We could not sit by in the sidelines; the Society decided to become actively involved in this disaster recovery effort."

In addition, the NYSSCPA Cooperation with Community Business Committee has also planned a special Seminar for Small Business to be held on October 23 at the Society’s office, 530 Fifth Avenue, 5th Floor. The free seminar will include information on insurance and taxes for small businesses involved in the World Trade Center disaster. Anyone interested in registering for the seminar should contact Lois Whitehead, public relations manager at the NYSSCPA, at 212-719-8405 or by e-mail.
