  1. Redbook App “Lite” and “Pro” now available!

    We’re proud to announce our new Redbook Lite and Redbook Pro App’s are now available at iTunes! The new App’s replace our previous Redbook App which was designed for the ver. 2001 Redbook. “Redbook” is the friendly name used for the Financial and Program Cost Accounting and Reporting for Florida Schools provided by the Florida Department of Education (DOE). Redbook is a uniform general ledger codification system prescribed by the DOE. The Redbook Lite App was designed to provide the user an efficient lookup tool to find general ledger expense codes conforming to DOE standards. The Redbook App allows users to quickly wheel through the various objects and functions to easily identify the code combination. Once selected, the user can option to read the narratives behind each code combination. The Redbook Pro App includes all the functionality of the Lite App but expands usability to include Asset, Liability and Revenue Sections of the Redbook. We encourage you to visit the App store at iTunes and search for “redbook codes”. The Redbook Lite is available free and the Pro App is offered at $4.99. Both were designed for the iPhone and iTouch and can be used equally well on the iPad and iPad Mini.

  2. Tax-exempt Organizations Helping Hurricane Victims:

    The IRS announced an expedited review and approval process for organizations seeking tax-exempt status to provide relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy. To benefit from this streamlined approval process, new organizations should enter “Disaster Relief, Hurricane Sandy” across the top of their Form 1023 [Application for Recognition of Exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code]. However, the IRS added that existing charities “are frequently able to administer relief programs more efficiently than newly formed organizations, since they tend to already have fund-raising and distribution infrastructures in place.” The Federal Emergency Management Agency website at www.fema.govand the federal government’s primary web portal at www.usa.gov list organizations that assist Hurricane Sandy victims.
