  • Accounting Internships Are a Win for Both Students and Schools

    Everyone knows that a prized internship is a benefit to future CPAs, but it is also a win for the college that set such a program up on campus. In a wide-ranging discussion on her spring 2018 Pennsylvania CPA Journal feature with Dee Palaschak, Marge O’Reilly-Allen, associate professor and chair of the accounting department for Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J., talks about what students hope to get out of an internship, why firms like to set up internships during busy season, and how, for students, meeting a partner is like “meeting Nick Foles.”
  • E-filing Now Mandatory for Municipal Authority and Authority Nonprofit Reports

    The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) now requires municipal authorities and authority nonprofits to file their annual reports online. Karen O’Neill, local government policy specialist with the DCED, provides more details on the entities this impacts and e-file instructions. Pam Baker, CPA, managing partner with Barbacane Thornton & Company, provides further perspective on this big change, and highlights the benefits and challenges for CPAs who work with these authorities.
