Frequently Asked Questions Am I required to use the Vehicle Mileage Log (State Form 13696) or can I create my own form? It is acceptable to create your own Vehicle Mileage Log as long as long as your form captures the same information as the State form. How long after I have been audited do I have to keep my files? SBoA requires all accounting files be kept for three (3) years after their audit. What is the Performance Bond and what is required for the audit? The Performance Bond is liability protection against potential employee fraud. A copy of the Performance Bond is needed at the time of the audit.
FAQs contd My grant carryover is $4.64. Do I have to return such a small amount? You will be invoiced for any amount under $100.00. If your grant carryover is under $100.00, you will need to request a transfer with your Regional Director for that amount to be moved into the Project Income fund. Is lodging tax exempt? Hotels have the legal right to charge Indiana sales tax. If a hotel chooses to charge you State sales tax, the cost will have to be absorbed within your office. If a hotel does not charge you State sales tax, then you can just pay what you have been charged.
FAQs contd Can two (2) funds be used to separate the grant years? Yes, we prefer that it is done that way to isolate the carryover from one year to the other. Can I write on the Auditors report in order to make adjustments? Absolutely! The question you have is probably the same question that everyone else has.
Phrases to Remember Dont Panic! I know all about that, I just dont remember. Your mistakes do not make us look better. A person cannot correct something if he/she doesnt know its wrong. It is possible to disagree with respect, to be wrong with integrity, and to be right with humility. The question you have is probably the same question that everyone else has.
