4,000-Year-Old Case of Tax Avoidance

On today's episode, we're checking out how Excel influencers are taking TikTok by storm, and raking in major bucks for their trouble. Then, we'll shoot 4,000 years backwards, and examine one of the first written descriptions of tax evasion, or avoidance. Also, NASBA is going silent on CPA exam performance, but we've got tips from Liz Kolar on how to keep prepping students for the Evolution. We'll look a case of warehouse work paying more than entry-level accounting work, and talk about Grant Thornton's ploy to bring in people with bigger, better perks! We've got news from the Thomson Reuters Synergy Conference, and why they're delaying release of a new product. Just in time for regular tax season, Claudell is back! We'll see what she's been up to, and get the details on the TurboTax Live Full Service offering. In app news, we've got Xero updates, word from Microsoft Teams, Apple, and much more!
