Please note that some of these posts may be outdated and further updates are linked in the article.

1: Four levels of audit opinions

The first page of audited financial statements is the auditor’s report. This is an important part of the financials that shouldn’t be overlooked. It contains the audit opinion, which indicates whether the financial statements are fairly presented in all material respects, compliant with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and free from material misstatement.


2: Commission fraud: When salespeople get paid more than they’ve earned

Many employees — from retail workers to sales staffers involved in complex business-to-business transactions — receive part of their compensation from sales-related commissions. To attract and retain top talent, some companies even allow employees to earn unlimited commissions.

4: What do the 2023 cost-of-living adjustment numbers mean for you?

The IRS recently issued its 2023 cost-of-living adjustments for more than 60 tax provisions. With inflation up significantly this year, many amounts increased considerably over 2022 amounts. As you implement 2022 year-end tax planning strategies, be sure to take these 2023 adjustments into account.


5: Married couples filing separate tax returns: Why would they do it?

If you’re married, you may wonder whether you should file joint or separate tax returns. The answer depends on your individual tax situation.

In general, it depends on which filing status results in the lowest tax. But keep in mind that, if you and your spouse file a joint return, each of you is “jointly and severally” liable for the tax on your combined income. And you’re both equally liable for any additional tax the IRS assesses, plus interest and most penalties. That means that the IRS can come after either of you to collect the full amount.


6: Virginia Raises Minimum Wage

Virginia’s state minimum wage has increased to $11.00 per hour effective on January 1, 2022, which is $3.75 more than the Federal $7.25 minimum wage. Virginia last saw an increase in minimum wage in May of 2021 when Governor Ralph Northam raised the wage to $9.50.


7: Virginia Announces 2022 Pass-Through Entity Tax Rules

Virginia released the draft guidance on their pass-through entity tax for 2022 and beyond. The tax allows pass-through entity owners to pay tax at the entity level instead of their individual return, which can effectively work around the state and local tax deduction limitation. Virginia allows this work around for 2021, but the guidance has not yet been released. Virginia is allowing public comment on these rules, so they may be subject to change.

Fixed-date tax conformity in Virginia will move forward for 2022 after Governor Glenn Youngkin signed an emergency conformity legislation on February 23rd, 2022. This bill (HB 971) will ensure most aid granted through pandemic-related loans and grants will not be treated as taxable income by the state of Virginia. It advances Virginia’s date of conformity with the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) from December 31, 2020, to December 31, 2021, and is effective immediately.
