Tallahassee, FL – It's the fifth year of Financial Fitness Friday. Gina Jordan tells us how anyone can receive free advice from an accountant.

Have a question about an IRA conversion? What about estate taxes? Maybe you just need a financial checkup. Free help is available to anyone in Florida on Friday, November 5th.

Brenda Hubbard with the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants says their CPA's will offer their services at no cost between 9:00am and 3:00pm.

"We always want people to do year-end tax planning. That's one reason we have this event in November, and a couple of things to look at this year are home improvements that are environmentally friendly; giving money to charity is always a good one to look at; adding to your retirement account."

Many of the institute's 19-thousand members statewide will be participating. They will take questions on their hotline and via email.

To ask a question, call (850) 224-2727 x554 or 800-342-3197 x554.

Email questions can be sent through their website at www.ficpa.org.
