Scammers prefer gift cards, but not just any card will do


Gift cards are an easy way to give. Reports to the FTC’s Consumer Sentinel show they’re also an easy way to take. About one in four people who report losing money to fraud say it happened when a scammer tricked them into giving the numbers on the back of a gift card.1 Gift cards are far more frequently reported than any other payment method for fraud,2 and the numbers have reached staggering new highs compared to past years.3 In the first nine months of 2021 alone, nearly 40,000 people reported $148 million stolen using gift cards. And because the vast majority of frauds are not reported to the government, this reflects only a fraction of the harm these scams cause.

Middle Market Conditions Remain Solid


The Chamber’s and RSM’s 2021 Q4 Middle Market Business Index (MMBI) showed a slight decline in business conditions for middle market firms in Q4.


Why it matters: The data reflects the slowing economy, though the middle market is optimistic about the six months ahead.


Our take: â€œThis quarter’s survey demonstrates the resiliency of the middle market. Despite continued inflationary pressures and supply chain difficulties, more than half of middle market leaders expect revenues and earnings to increase in the coming months.”

SBA Administrator Announces Plans to Elevate the Office of Women’s Business Ownership


“In 1972, there were a little over 400,000 women-owned businesses in the United States. Today, there are over 12 million proving that women entrepreneurs have become the fastest growing and one of the most impactful segments of the business community,” said Administrator Guzman. “While there has been historic progress in women’s entrepreneurship, significant disparities still persist, impacting women entrepreneurs’ access to resources and opportunity, especially in the face of the economic challenges posed by COVID. That is why I am proud to advance the mission of the Office of Women’s Business Ownership and reaffirm our commitment to America’s women-owned small businesses.”

Tax Policy’s Bipartisan Roots

I always begin my classes in Federal Income Taxation by reminding my students that the tax law is the primary link between people and their government—they all will have to wrestle with the tax law.


In 2020 an unprecedented 159 million Americans voted in the presidential elections. The IRS that year received nearly 170 million individual income tax returns, many for two or more people—and if we add business and non-income tax returns, the number of returns swelled to 240 million. Far more people file tax returns than vote.

Pierden su Fuerza las Empresas Digitales y se Afectan sus Valores


Desde que comenzó la pandemia, los consumidores se han visto obligados a adaptarse y adoptar nuevas formas de comer, hacer ejercicio, entretenerse, estudiar, trabajar, comunicarse y vivir la vida. En su mayor parte, estos hábitos han sido forzados; estos rápidos cambios tienen importantes implicaciones que van desde los detallistas hasta las empresas de consumo. Muchos de los cambios a largo plazo, en el comportamiento de los consumidores, no serán duraderos y otros permanecerán con nosotros como parte de nuestra nueva normalidad.
