Philadelphia Woman Engages in Passionate CPA Awareness Campaign in a Pizza Parlor

We Regret to Inform You That National Pizza Day Has Come and Gone
Just before midnight last night my phone reminded me that February 9 is National Pizza Day, an event celebrated year-round at accounting firms across the country. Why February 9?

You’re Not Alone If You Think Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 Tax Plan Is a Gimmick
At a minimum, the Cain plan is a distributional monstrosity.

Area Man Sentenced to Serve Pizzas in Lieu of Jail for Sales Tax Fraud

After Jacobbi turned over a check for $25,000 — part of the $104,295.31 court officials said he withheld from the state between March 2004 and the end of May 2008 — the judge ordered the weekly pizza deliveries as a form of community service.
“I will leave the choice of toppings up to you,” he told the nonplussed restaurant owner.
Not that we don’t appreciate the judge’s creative sentence but shouldn’t the people at the mission get to choose the toppings?
