With a little less than half a year until the holiday season, now is the perfect time to take action to ensure that your audience can save the best gift for last: starting a new year with no holiday debt. Members of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) have suggestions for your audience including how to plan to ensure financial success this holiday season.
