How Trump's TCJA Caused Him to Lose

David Leary has a theory... that Donald Trump's tax cuts way back at the beginning of his presidency were ultimately what caused him to lose this election, and an Excel error leads to voter fraud accusations. In other news, we'll talk about why Walmart's abandoning shelf-scanning robots, how to double your client conversions, and just what and Square earnings are telling us about the future of cloud accounting. In PPP news, we'll discuss how a judge ordered the SBA to reveal PPP loan data it sought to obscure, while evidence of PPP fraud mounts. We'll also talk about the income tax surprise waiting for remote workers in 2021, and why California fined KPMG $1.3M for cheating scandal. All this and more, right now!
