In an economic downturn such as the one that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic, not-for-profit organizations can feel pinched in two ways. People who have lost jobs or fear losing them may be less likely to donate to the NFPs at a time the services offered by the organizations are needed most.

Strategies and models must be changed to find new opportunities and deal with the challenges presented on multiple fronts. Amy West, CPA, CGMA, the CFO of AHRC in New York City, shares advice on how to adapt and find new paths during tough times. West also is a member of the AICPA Not-for-Profit Advisory Council.

Cannabis for medicinal or recreational use is a fast-growing business, and the advisory opportunities for accountants in the industry are also growing. Along with those opportunities are emerging issues on the regulatory and risk fronts. Ron Seigneur, CPA/ABV, the managing partner of Colorado firm Seigneur Gustafson LLP, shares more on the topic, including what to look for in proposed federal legislation.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

- An explanation of the difference between cannabis, hemp, and marijuana.

- More on the cannabis-specific guidance for accountants offered by the AICPA and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

- The professional risks to consider before adding clients from cannabis-related industries.

- The COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on cannabis businesses.

- Why legalization in some states does not mean those states become cannabis epicenters.

- How legislation could change the landscape for cannabis businesses.

This podcast episode follows up one posted on Aug. 20 about President Donald Trump’s memorandum directing Treasury to defer the withholding, deposit, and payment of workers’ 6.2% Social Security or Railroad Retirement tax for the last four months of 2020. Since then, Treasury and the IRS have issued much-anticipated guidance on just how the deferral applies and how the taxes are likely to have to be repaid.

Ed Karl, the AICPA’s vice president–Tax Policy & Advocacy, described the memorandum in the first podcast episode. Now he returns to describe what the guidance in Notice 2020-65 provides — and what it still leaves unclear. He has also written a post on the AICPA Insights blog titled “Employee Payroll Tax Deferral — Is It Workable?” that outlines what CPA advisers can tell their business clients with employees about the deferral.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

-The notice puts the responsibility for deferring — and repaying — the taxes squarely on employers.

-Although the notice doesn’t say so directly, it is clear that employers do not have to participate in the deferral.

-The deferred taxes must be ratably repaid in the first four months of 2021 from wages and compensation of an employee whose payroll taxes were deferred. But what about an employee who leaves the job before that happens or a business that goes under? Employers “may make arrangements to otherwise collect” the taxes from the employee. The notice doesn’t elaborate on how they might do that, so we hypothesize.

-We assess efforts that are afoot in Congress on the one hand to forgive the deferred taxes entirely and to overturn the president’s memorandum on the other.

Finance executives in the United States are more confident about their own businesses than about the overall economy. Why is that? And what is the hiring outlook for companies for the next 12 months? Ken Witt, CPA, CGMA, a senior manager for management accounting and member engagement at the AICPA, provides further detail and analysis on the quarterly Business and Industry Economic Outlook Survey, the last before the Nov. 3 presidential election.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

- How finance leaders view the domestic economy and their own businesses.

- Why election season brought about a change to the list of top challenges this quarter.

- The component in the CPA Outlook Index that ranks higher than others by a wide margin.

- The business sectors showing improvement and the ones that continue to struggle.

- How the pandemic may be changing the real estate needs of businesses.

This episode explores the huge implications for state and local taxes raised by workers more often untethered from the employer’s physical location, sometimes in another state. And now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, remote teleworking has become the rule for many professions.

Eileen Sherr, CPA, MT, and Mo Bell-Jacobs, J.D., bring us up to speed. Sherr is a senior manager with the AICPA’s Tax Advocacy team in charge of the AICPA State and Local Tax Technical Resource Panel, or SALT TRP, and Bell-Jacobs is a senior manager at RSM National Tax in Washington and a member of the SALT TRP.

In this podcast, we touch base with Ed Karl, the AICPA’s vice president–Tax Policy & Advocacy, to discuss questions the AICPA Tax Executive Committee has raised in official comments to Treasury and the IRS concerning President Donald Trump’s Aug. 8 memorandum ordering Treasury to defer the withholding, deposit, and payment of payroll taxes imposed by Sec. 3101(a) — better known as the employee portion of Social Security tax, currently 6.2% of covered wages and compensation — and a comparable rate of tax under Sec. 3201 — that’s the Railroad Retirement tax — for Sept. 1, 2020, through the end of the year. We’ll explore the range of issues that Treasury and the IRS face as they implement this order and what it all could mean for employers and employees.

The culture of a workplace, be that in a company or an accounting firm, determines how employees and customers are treated, says Stephanie Creary, an identity and diversity scholar and professor of management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. To assess how racism is a factor requires open, frank conversations and leaders willing to listen and learn what they probably didn’t know.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

- Starting conversations about racism with Black Lives Matter and police violence may not be the most effective thing to do.

- An expert or coach can facilitate conversations about racism, help people work with their emotions, and create learning environments.

- It’s necessary to customize diversity and inclusion training based on the roles and positions people hold in the organization.

- Programs that succeed in recruiting and mentoring Black employees involve everybody in the organization.
