The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship was enacted in 2001 to provide educational options to make scholarships available to children whose household income qualifies them for free or reduced-price lunch. In 2010, the Legislature added a new provision, 1002.395(8)(e), that requires participating schools receiving more than $250,000 in scholarship money during the fiscal year July 1 to June 30 to file an accountability report. This accountability report focuses on the use of the scholarship money and the financial procedures and controls in place at the schools. That report, in the form of Agreed-Upon Procedures, is to be completed by an independent and current, Florida Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
The Agreed-Upon Procedures are developed and revised jointly by all state-approved nonprofit Scholarship Funding Organizations that have provided more than $250,000 in Tax Credit Scholarships in the year prior to each biennial review. The first review of the Agreed-Upon Procedures was completed in February 2013 and revised Agreed-Upon Procedures were provided to private schools and the state education commissioner on March 15, 2013. The revised Agreed-Upon Procedures below were developed in accordance with the standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountantsin Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements (AT Sec. 201) and following the input of accrediting associations that are members of the Florida Association of Academic Nonpublic Schools.
Each school receiving more than $250,000 in a fiscal year, July 1 to June 30, is required to submit an original copy of the Independent Accountant’s Report on Applying Agreed-Upon Procedures to the Scholarship Funding Organization that provides more than half its scholarship receipts by September 15, following the end of that fiscal year. Faxed copies will not be accepted and will be discarded upon receipt. In return, the Scholarship Funding Organization must report to the Commissioner of Education by October 30 of that year: 1) A school’s failure to file the Independent Accountant’s Report on Applying Agreed-Upon Procedures; and 2) Any material exceptions set forth in a school’s Independent Accountant’s Report on Applying Agreed-Upon Procedures.

Most professions have their own lingo, and accounting is no different. What is different is that you have a vested interest in understanding what your accountant tells you about your financial situation. So, here’s a quick primer on common accounting terms—some business-related, some general—to keep you in the know:
There has rarely been a winter when we so badly needed to see (and feel) spring. Depending on where you live, this could mean bluer skies, warmer temperatures, time outside and…gardening! For those who live in a climate where spring doesn’t always mean it’s warm enough to garden outdoors, consider creating an indoor planting box for flowers, veggies, herbs or all of the above.
While “under a blanket on a cold winter day” isn’t the worst place to work, it’s a good idea to regularly assess your remote working environment—especially if you don’t have a full home office setup—to decide if anything needs an adjustment or upgrade. Here are four important points to consider:
