Go Braless Day
Do you know that today is Go Braless Day? Encouraging women to Go Braless on Oct. 13 to Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer. We at Richardson & Associates will support this cause with our actions by going without support –“pun intended” and with deeds by donating from the following link. Join us now!
Breast cancer disparities for African-American women are startling. In 2014, breast cancer mortality was 44 percent higher for African-American women in the U.S. than Caucasian women. This is unacceptable and Susan G. Komen is working to change these outcomes. - See more at: http://ww5.komen.org/?gclid=

Judging A Taste of Cincinnati
I was honored to be asked to Judge the 2012 A Taste of Cincinnati. I know this will be one of the best Taste of Cincinnati in a long time. I was asked to judge the seafood category and man I had some great dishes to taste.
Thirty area restaurants served more than 80 dishes to some of the most discerning taste buds in Cincinnati USA on May 7. They were competing at Best of Taste, the region's most prestigious annual culinary competition and precursor to Taste of Cincinnati. We - named the Crab & Shrimp Dumpling with Noodle from Arloi Dee Thai Bistro as the Best Damn Dish. The award is for the most votes via blind taste tests of all the dishes entered into the competition, as a former owner of A Taste of Sherri’s that dish was great. I Also liked the fish and chips. And Mahogany’s, Shrimp and Grits, if you get to the taste of Cincinnati earl,y make this your breakfast dish it had bacon bits with shrimp, a really different and good dish!
Congratulations! Richardson & Associates has a new CPA.
Our Tax manager - Zhongfang has been with us for 2 years. Congratulations! Zhongfang has become a Certified Public Accountant as of March 15, 2012.

The Cincinnati Enquirer spotlighted Richardson & Associates in the business section of the Sunday's newspaper on Sept 11, 2011.
" An audit is usually not a pleasant experience - unless your accountant saves you more than $5,000. I hired Richardson & Associates to conduct an audit for Parents for Public Schools of Greater Cincinnati(PPS) fiscal year-end in September 2010. I knew PPS could face an IRS penalty for a deadline mix-up, but Sherri Richardson, founder of Richardson & Associates, showed me ways to save the penalty and found cost-savings strategies, too. Richardson not only reviewed PPS' books, but also analyzed PPS website, donation outreach and operations to maximize its potential. Richardson & Associates took the time to work with us on so many levels, They gave us many avenues where we could improve. It has really made a difference."
