THIS WEEKS RESOURCES
  1. AICPA Launches Online Resource for the IT Community

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants unveiled a new Information Technology (IT) community Web site that contains resources, tools and guidance for CPAs interested or practicing in IT.

  1. Tax Preparation Support Program: The Next Firm Practice Area?

When it comes to understanding income tax options, nearly one-fifth of employees do not fully comprehend how their W-4 forms impact their taxes and paychecks according to a newly released survey. The survey emphasizes the need for educating employees and employers -- especially those new to the workforce -- on the subject of taxes and their implications.

  1. AMT Deduction for Home Mortgage Interest Clarified by the IRS

Qualified housing interest, which generally is deductible for alternative minimum tax purposes, includes interest paid on a mortgage that has been refinanced more than once, the Internal Revenue Service confirmed late last week.

  1. Survey Finds Workers Average Only Three Productive Days per Week

Unclear objectives, lack of team communication and ineffective meetings are among the top time wasters that workers around the world say make them feel unproductive for as much as a third of their workweek on average, according to results of an online survey announced last week.

  1. IRS Issues Guidance on Truck Sale Excise Tax

The Internal Revenue Service this week issued guidance intended to help truck dealers determine whether a truck body is subject to federal excise tax.
