    • Compensation Issues – Revisited

      We are more than halfway through the retirement plan audit season and we have noticed a number of common errors occurring with compensation. I previously discussed these issues in my blog series “Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 1” and "Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 2," but we want to revisit the issue, since we are seeing this error occur on a rather consistent basis.


    • Back to School with Charity Navigator

      School has officially started across the country, and it looks like students won’t be the only ones who will be graded out of 100 points this year. Charity Navigator, a nonprofit organization that evaluates charities in the United States and compares them to charities with similar causes, recently changed their rating system from a 70-point scale to a 100-point scale.


    • Tax Extenders Passed by Congress
