Welcome to this month’s issue of KnowledgeApplied. In this issue, we open with the first in a series of articles by Bill Morgan, a principal at WNDE, on fraud detection and prevention.  Bill has also authored a health care tax alert, which provides important information relating to the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare.  Our profile this month is of Joe Ludin, one of our audit managers.  Our tax tip this month discusses taxable and non-taxable income, with special input offered by Christina Wenk, one of WNDE’s senior tax managers.  And finally, our firm keeps growing, as is evidenced by our recent hiring of three new managers.


Thanks for reading,
Dave Doran
Managing Partner
