IRS ERISA Audits
Most 401K, Profit Sharing or Pension plans with over 100 participants require an annual audit to be attached to the IRS form 5500 filing. Jonlyn & Associates can provide the necessary ERISA compliant financial statements and report.  This audit is usually done seperately from your corporate audit, so we can work with your current CPA firm as most firms no longer want to perform these audits.

Illinois Charitable Non-Profit Audits
Many Non-Profit organizations need to have an audit for the Illinois Attorney General along with the IL AG990 tax form.  Effective 2009 the IRS has changed the 990 and 990T tax forms.  501(c)3 charities of any size must now file an annual tax return, even if they had little or no activity. John Pezzullo and Katie Bachi have both attend the IRS and Illinois CPA society training sessions on these new forms and requirements which are effective for the current tax year.  Jonlyn & Associates can provide the necessary compliant financial statements, reports and tax returns.  The audit, if required for your Illinois AG 990, is usually done seperately from your corporate audit, so we can work with your current CPA firm.
