Financial Fitness Friday

As a member of the Florida Institute of CPAs (FICPA), I wanted to let you know about a terrific opportunity we have coming up. On Friday, Nov. 5, 2010, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., volunteer FICPA members will be available to answer financial-related questions – free of charge – to Florida residents.

According to The National Foundation for Credit Counseling’s 2010 Consumer Financial Literacy Survey Final Report, about 4 in 5 adults agree that they would benefit from advice and answers to everyday financial questions from a professional.

• Are you part of Florida's high unemployment rate?
• Do you have a budget in place? Have you put it into action?
• Are you expecting an addition to your family?
• Have you been thinking about withdrawing from or increasing your contribution to your retirement funds?
• Did you recently start or are ready to graduate from college?
• Are you a recent empty-nester?
• Are you aware of any year-end tax breaks that could affect you?
• Did you start your own business this year?

Our certified public accountants are qualified professionals who can help answer questions you have about these and any other life and financial changes you’re experiencing.

I hope you can take advantage of this once-a-year event, free to Florida residents.
