Agenda:             Joe Kenyon and Ginger Knutsen from Schechter Dokken Kanter (SDK) will be following up on last year’s outstanding presentation on forensic accounting.  The presentation will include, among other things, a general discussion of fraud schemes, the factors that cause fraudulent behavior, the red flags of fraud, and a few example fraud investigations.

Notes from the February 20th Meeting:  

  • Josh Johnson presented “Estates of Jones and S Corporation Tax Affecting”, a brief overview of the Estate of Jones v. Commissioner case with a comparison and contrast with previous historical tax affecting cases.  Thanks, Josh, for the tremendous presentation!
  • We will again be working with the local chapter of the ASA to plan a joint Summer Social.  Last year’s event at TopGolf was a great success!  We’d love to have your input on this year’s plans.  Be looking for a brief survey to come to your email address soon.
