It’s summer time! Don’t forget to protect your beautiful skin! Here are some DOs & DON’Ts

~Don’t forget to apply at least 30 SPF sunscreen.

~Do apply sunscreen more than once when you’re spending the day under the sun.

~Don’t be fooled by the sunscreen bottle labeling of waterproof. The water does wash away some of the sunscreen. Which allows the harmful UVA & UVB sun rays to penetrate your skin.

~Do have FUN outside in the sun! ☀️🏝🕶

More IRS News….

IRS announces that, starting July 15, it will begin examining hundreds of high-income individuals and private foundations. In my reading of this news I was unable to see how they will be defining “high-income individuals”. Why are these two (individuals and private foundations) in the same sentence? Well, the IRS is of the opinion that there is an important link between the two as most high-income individuals are involved with one or more private foundations. More particular, the IRS believes that there could be what they call “prohibited transactions” between them! Oh, heavens.

In addition, another tax agency (TIGTA) stated that they believe there is likely over $46 billion to collect in back taxes from these high-income individuals.

Most of you know that audit rates have been particularly low in the last decade. That can’t last….no way. I am not advocating a rise in audits!! Nope. But history has proven that when audits decrease, tax cheating increases. There’s an amazing correlation there!

I have NO empathy or sympathy for those who cheat on their taxes. The “tax gap” in this country is gigantic. The “tax gap” is the amount of taxes that should have been paid but haven’t been paid. Currently, the “tax gap” is around $400 billion. Seriously. That is incredible. Now, obviously, not all of that is from “cheaters”. But, nevertheless, a large portion is.

And, never forget, that a portion of the high taxes you pay are only because of that “tax gap”. So, you and I are subsidizing the cheaters. That doesn’t sit well with me. So, my zero tolerance stance is, in my humble opinion, very well justified.

There are some serious rumblings about this new round of tax relief about to be loosed on us. Once the “kids” finish fighting over it we will be able to read it and learn it. How hard could it be???!!!

Food For Thought From Mast Brothers Towing

Check your insurance coverage on your vehicle. A lot of people only have liability insurance on their vehicles, and no towing coverage. This can get expensive fast if you have a crash. Usually the difference between having liability insurance and full coverage is not a large jump in cost, and you are covered.   Also making sure that you have towing coverage will save you during a break down or accident. Towing also usually covers lock outs and jump starts.  Check with your insurance provider and make sure you are covered. An accident is just that, and they are never expected. Be prepared. Helpful hints provided by your friends at Mast Bros. Towing.

What does the Coronavirus Pandemic Mean for Your Job Search?

As companies move to remote work to fight the coronavirus pandemic and an increasing number of workers are being laid off or furloughed, you might be wondering if you should continue to send out resumes or just assume that no one is hiring for the foreseeable future. It’s true that economists are predicting a recession, but career experts say it’s best to keep networking and applying, provided you change your approach a bit to acknowledge these are uncertain times.
