Fiat Chrysler Worried Government Shutdown Could Delay New Products

Unless you’re employed by Uncle Sam, you may not have noticed the current government shutdown impacting your life by any meaningful margin. That, of course, has not kept the media from spending the entire month scaremongering and trying to place blame (Spoiler: It’s everyone’s fault, as these shutdowns happen anytime Congress has to agree on a new budget, […] The post Fiat Chrysler Worried Government Shutdown Could Delay New Products appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Fed shutdown underscores why to adjust payroll withholding

Today should be payday for hundreds of thousands of federal government workers. The partial government shutdown, however, means they're not getting their money. And even though the White House, Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service say that the 2019 filing season will open at the end of January as it has in years past and that refunds will be issued, there's no guarantee that things will go smoothly. We are, after all, talking about Uncle Sam's operations. Can IRS meet refund challenge? T...

Tax Day 2019 is April 15 and April 17

We still don't know when the 2019 tax filing season will start. But that uncertainty has no bearing on the tax deadlines we're all expected to meet, even when some of Uncle Sam's offices are closed or operating with fewer staff than normal. The Internal Revenue Service usually begins accepting and processing returns around mid- to late-January. Meeting that traditional opening date already was going to be tough. The agency has been in crunch mode this year with the added work to make sure forms...

How can a bankrupt republic run the world?

The annual budget battle is at its peak and Washington continues to flaunt its remarkable dysfunction. In coming years this fiscal irresponsibility is likely to drive U.S. foreign and military policy. The U.S. government has no more important duty than defending the nation. However, providing for the “common defense,” as the Constitution puts it, is remarkably easy. America has vast oceans east and west and pacific neighbors north and south. Today only Russia, with an arsenal of nuclear-tipped m...

Tax and financial lessons from the government shutdown

I'm getting a lot of feedback about the partial government shutdown, specifically about the pay status of Internal Revenue Service (and other federal) personnel who will report to work next week and those who are furloughed. More than 420,000 federal employees who will work will do so without pay, according to a report from the Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee. The additional 380,000 furloughed workers head home to wait out the closure, again without pay. Those 800,000 or so fe...

Tax cheats get audit break during government shutdown

Tax refund delivery isn't the only tax function that likely would be delayed if the federal government is shut down for an appreciable length of time. Tax audits, or examinations at the Internal Revenue Service calls them, also will be sidelined if fewer agency employees are at work. A lot of folks say that's not a problem. I get it. Nobody likes tax audits, even — maybe especially — when you haven't intentionally done anything wrong with your tax filing. But audits are a key component of taxpa...

5 common tax myths could cost you thousands

Fact: Taxes are confusing — and it doesn’t help that there are so many myths that swirl around the subject. It makes sense though. There’s no class in high school on how to do taxes, and the subject is LOADED with heated beliefs and emotions. People did start a literal revolution over it after all. However, knowing how to separate fact from fiction is crucial to avoiding an audit and penalties, and getting the most out of your tax refund. Let’s debunk the 5 most persistent tax myths that you...

Allegiances

The Rt Rev Matthew Gunter Bishop of Fond Du Lac, The Rt Rev Matthew Gunter recently posted a reflection on the Feast of Christ the King; “Centered on Jesus V: If Christ is King . . .”   He begins by reminding us that this relatively recent addition to the Church’s calendar (1925) arose from a desire to counter the early twentieth century’s violent embrace of secular ideologies such as nationalism, fascism, and communism. “Pope Pius,” Gunter writes, “rightly recognized this as antithetical to ...

Turkey Day thanks and taxes

It's turkey time! Thanksgiving spread photo courtesy Zeetz Jones via Flickr CC. Happy Turkey Day! I hope you and yours are having a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. It's subdued at our house this year, just the hubby and me. My mom is spending the day with some extended family. Plus, due to some dining issues created by recent oral surgery, our menu — OK, my menu — is limited to mashed potatoes and gravy. That means the hubby gets to pig out for the both of us. But I'm thankful that I can ...

Let Us Give Thanks for Wild Turkey and Uncle Sam

Wild Turkey Feathers. This is a repost from Nov. 2008 Let us give thanks to the Wild Turkey, America's largest ground-nesting bird.Back when my grandfather was born, the Wild Turkey was teetering on the edge of extinction. Today we have more Wild Turkeys in America's woods than existed in pre - Columbian times.How is that possible?Good question. But before we get there, let's dwell a little bit longer on the miracle.You see, it generally requires a lot of forest -- 2,000 acres or more -- to...

Thumbing through the IRS' medical deduction (or not) list

Since I'm still recovering from my medical procedure last week, I'm following doctor's orders and taking it as easy as possible. Translation: More milkshakes! But I'm nothing if not a slightly obsessive-compulsive creature of habit. So I did want to get a Saturday Shout Out piece up today. Solution: I'm combining both medical directions and blogging impulses and recommending related tax reading today. Specifically, I'm going to the source, the Internal Revenue Service, for its comprehensive lis...

Is commercial real estate a good investment – Part 2

Last week we massaged the merits of investing in commercial real estate. Some of the scenarios: Why not, a liquidity event, a sale of the business that occupies, a mismatch of risk, a dispute, and finally aging owners. “You’ve achieved a nice portfolio over the years with timely purchases, well-timed trades up, and careful management of the occupancy, income and expenses. But you are tired! Akin to captaining a ketch – tiny tweaks and tightening take time and talent. In order to capture the wind...
