The Year Ahead
Accounting Today
December 1, 2016
New year, new president, new changes, new challenges and new opportunities: 2017 promises to be an interesting 12 months. To help you start getting a handle on what it might mean for your practice, your firm and the accounting profession as a whole, we’ve turned to two different groups: a panel of experts in the field, and a large group of accountants themselves. This year’s experts are: Joanne Barry, executive director and CEO of the New York State Society of CPAs; Crosley+Co. founder Gale Crosley; California Society of CPAs CEO Loretta Doon; and others.

As New Yorkers Participate in Giving Tuesday, NYS Tax Department Reminds Them of Added Benefits
NYS Department of Taxation and Finance
November 30, 2016
The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today reminded taxpayers to follow established guidelines when claiming charitable contributions on their personal income tax returns. Millions of New Yorkers donate to charities, especially around the holidays. In 2014, the most recent year for which tax data is available, more than two million New York taxpayers claimed $32.9 billion in charitable giving for a total tax savings of $599 million.

Michelle Staebell (Rochester)

Rising star in CPA society is a Woman To Watch
Democrat & Chronicle
November 23, 2016
When Michelle Staebell enrolled in an accounting class during college, she discovered the career path she wanted to pursue. “I always enjoyed math but I didn’t know what I could do with a math degree. Taking that accounting class helped me realize that numbers truly had a purpose in life and I was hooked.” Numbers have played an important role ever since for both Staebell, as the owner of CPA firm Towner Taxes and also for the hundreds of low income and elderly taxpayers she volunteers to help every year with VITA of Livingston County.
