It’s Tax Season

Okay…so First,
Farewell Mr. President and First Lady Obama thank you for eight glotious years

…and Second…

IT’S—-TAX ———-Season 2017 !!!!

FlashBack**** On December 18th 2015, the President signed into law the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, HR 2029, PL 114-113 (the “PATH Act”), which extends or makes permanent over (50) fifty expiring tax provisions relting to businesses and individuals. This Year….the PATH Act  extends key tax provisions for businesses and individuals. So make sure that your Paid Tax Preparer knows the latest on Tax Seasib 2017 Tax Provisions for Businesses including the  Work Opportunity Tax Credit; Depreciation & Expensing Provisions; Energy Credits and Deductions; What’s new with S Corporations;  International Tax Provisions; Individual Income Tax Provisions; Deductions for  State and Local General Sals Taxes in Lieu of State and Local Income Taxes;  Non-Taxable IRA Transfers to Eligible Charities and Exclusions from Gross Income of Discharge of Indebteness. Just remember…It’s always Good to Know before you Go!

So…What’s Happening this tax season? The Health Insurance Marketplace.

To all my author/writer friends and family. …don’t delay. To family and friends from city to city and state to state…the same message applies. Don’ forget-your Health Insurance Coverage. So check with your Insurance Providers  for your Health Care Coverage Statements for you & your DEPENDENTS (Form 1095-A) (Form 1095-B) & (Form 1095-C). These forms show the total premiums that are paid to your selected companies. Just like you need to provide your W-2 or 1099 form, you also need to provide your tax preparer with the 1095 forms (A) (B) or (C) when you sit down to have your taxes prepared. Remember, if you do not get…or don’t have  healthcare, during the mandatory enrollment period, they you may have to pay a penalty. So before you jump up and get the pre-filing bug, take a moment and make sure you have all the documents needed before filing.  Don’t go out and jump the gun with Any and Every Joe Schmo to have your taxes done without making sure that-that person goes over what’s needed this year; AND before they lock you in…committing you to a bunch of unanswered questions and a bunch of hidden fees.

Alright Now…What’s New this tax season?

Not that it’s all new …but You need to know the RULES for Claiming a Dependent on Your Tax Return, so make sure that your Paid Tax-Preparer has your best interest in mind and that they know the Rules.   If you are Itemizing, make you know what is deductible and what is not. If you are  ‘Self Employed”  make sure you know or are  told what the general self-employment tax rate is for  the year or prior years are.

If in doubt…visit your local H & R Block Office…Our Tax Professionals are more than willing to provide you with a Second Look at your prior (2013, 2014, 2015 )Year Tax returns. Special Tax Benefits for Armed Forces Personnel, The Military Family Tax Relief Act; Taxable and Nontaxable Income; Disability Claim Tax Considerations and more.

APRIL 18th is the final date for this season…so just putting it out there.

This is my absolute favorite quote from a reader who left a review for Killertrust
Daring Characters…Review– First off, I loved the fact that the book’s setting was in Cape Girardeau. I also liked Rhetta and her husband because they seemed like they were on the same wave length. I would say that Rhetta is definitely a daring character and someone that I would enjoy hanging out with. Highly recommend it!
This Author & book continues to receive 5 Star Reviews….

With only the best of intentions she has stumbled into a murder mystery
April 19, 2015   Rhetta has done it again! With only the best of intentions she has stumbled into a murder mystery. Thank goodness for her husband, and crew of friends who help her solve the crimes, just in time to save lives. Excellent read

Courting Murder...When Judge Rosswell Carew makes the gruesome discovery of two corpses on a river bank in the Missouri Ozarks, he’s plunged into a storm of deadly secrets that threaten both him and his fiancee, Tina Parkmore. Unsatisfied with the way the authorities are conducting the investigation, Rosswell, who’s always nurtured a secret desire to be a detective, teams up with an ex-con, Ollie Groton, to solve the case before the killer can murder again. Rosswell uncovers a maze of crimes so tangled that he must fight his way to a solution or die trying.

River Mourn…Judge Rosswell Carew’s fiancée is still missing. Because her last call to him came from a payphone in Sainte Genevieve, Carew arranges to hold court there so he can pursue his search for her. When he witnesses someone who resembles Tina tossed from a riverboat ferry, he’s plunged into a nightmare world he never knew existed. Rosswell is astounded when he discovers that what he saw and the fate of Tina are intertwined. Unable to convince the local authorities that something deadly is going on, Rosswell teams up with his faithful research assistant Ollie Groton to discover the truth. The excitement never lets up until the last page.

Bill Hopkins blends high stakes with hi-jinks in this harrowing adventure set above the mighty Mississippi, as quirky Judge Rosswell Carew tracks a criminal with a deadly, and personal, agenda….
Leslie Budewitz, Agatha-winning author of Books, Crooks & Counselors: How to Write Accurately About Criminal Law & Courtroom ProcedureBill Hopkins has transplanted Judge Rosswell Carew and his “research assistant” Ollie to river country …. A fun read filled with intrigue, hidden passages, and people who seem to live forever.  Allan E. Ansorge, author of Bay Harbour and Victor Verie mysteries.

Bloody Earth... After he witnesses the prosecutor tumble to his death on the steps of the courthouse in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Judge Rosswell Carew immediately suspects his archenemy Nathaniel Dahlbert of murder. None of the authorities believe Rosswell because of his troublesome background. When he teams up with his reluctant “research assistant” Ollie Groton, unknown hiding places, untold secrets, and unsolved crimes push Rosswell to the brink. If he can’t convince the cops who the murderer is, his own life, along with the lives of his family and friends, may also come to a grisly end.
