Beat The Tax Bill With A Tax Plan

This Too Shall Pass Filing your tax return usually isn’t much of a chore. If you’re like most people, you e-file it and call it a day. (Maybe you cross your fingers in hope that teenage Russian hackers don’t steal your identity.) If you’re old-school, you trudge down to the post office to snail mail a paper return. But if Representative Gwen Moore’s new bill passes, filing might get a little harder.Tax Bill  Moore represents Wisconsin’s Fourth District, which includes Milwaukee and several working-class suburbs.

Take This Tax and Shove It

Country music has a long history of celebrating outlaw behavior, which naturally extends to celebrating “outlaw” performers. Plenty of fans have heard the album Johnny Cash recorded of his first prison concert at California’s San Quentin penitentiary. But Cash’s fellow country icon Merle Haggard, who recently passed away at age 80, was there to hear the concert live — because he was actually serving time in the joint!

Words like “hero” and “icon” get tossed around pretty casually these days. But the world lost a true card-carrying legend with the passing last week of boxer Muhammad Ali after a long and public battle with Parkinson’s disease. Ali first gained fame in the ring, of course, floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee. But he made his real mark, and redefined the power of an athlete’s reach, when he picked a four-year fight to battle induction into the United States Army. Now his estate could be poised for a different and equally expensive sort of battle —

Diane Gardner guest starred on the amazing video podcast, StandOut  –  with Cheryl Tan Click Here To Watch  It’s certainly not easy to start over. Just ask Diane Gardner, an accountant who has had to do it more than once. After the most recent reinvention, she realized she needed to make some big changes to her business model or her business just wouldn’t survive.

Have a Coke and a Tax Strategy

When most of us hear the word “tax,” we immediately think “IRS.” It’s natural to associate those three-letter words with each other (even if “IRS” is an acronym and not a word). But our friends at the IRS are hardly the only tax collectors with their hands out for your money and to change your tax strategy. State and local governments need (love) money too, and they don’t have as many options for raising it as Uncle Sam. So every now and then, someone makes headlines with a plan to tax something new. tax strategy  Philadelphia’s incoming mayor Jim Kenney

Barry Good! Income Tax Humor

Humorist Dave Barry entertained millions of readers with his nationally syndicated column from 1983 to 2004. Along the way, he earned a Pulitzer Prize for commentary, inspired a television series (Dave’s World), and even, after mocking the cities of Grand Forks, South Dakota and East Grand Forks, Minnesota, earned the honor of having a sewage pumping station named after him.
