Members of the New York State Society of CPAs are donating their services to businesses and individuals affected by the World Trade Center disaster. Since early October, the society has staffed an information table at 110 Maiden Lane in New York’s financial district. There, CPAs help victims complete applications for federal disaster assistance and share their expertise on matters related to insurance, tax returns, pensions and small businesses. Telephone consultations are available by calling the society at 800-NYSSCPA. ( www.nysscpa.org )
