Tax Tips for the Blind

Anyone whose field of vision falls at or below 20 degrees, who wears corrective glasses but whose vision is 20/200 or less in his best eye, or who has no eyesight at all, meets the legal definition of being blind and is eligible for certain tax deductions.

What is Form 4255: Recapture of Investment Credit?

When is a tax credit not a tax credit? When the IRS takes it back. If you're in the situation where you have to file IRS Form 4255, you might have to pay back a tax credit you've earned in prior years. This process, known as recapture, occurs if you claim a credit -- in this case, a credit for a specific type of business investment -- and then no longer qualify for that credit.

The Most Important Tax Forms for ALEs (Applicable Large Employers)

In 2015, some parts of the Affordable Care Act specifically apply to businesses, in particular, large employers. The Employer Shared Responsibility provisions affect companies with 50 or more full-time employees or an equivalent of part-time or seasonal workers. These companies are called Applicable Large Employers, or ALEs. 2015 is considered a transition year as everyone gets used to the new normal for workplace health plans.

Employer Sponsored Health Coverage Explained

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is simpler than some people may give it credit for. The basic rule to remember is that everyone must carry Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) or pay a penalty. Employers with 50 full-time employees or more are obligated to sponsor plans for their workers to help them meet this requirement.

How to Report RSUs or Stock Grants on Your Tax Return

Restricted stock units (RSUs) and stock grants are often used by companies to reward their employees with an investment in the company rather than with cash. As the name implies, RSUs have rules as to when they can be sold. Stock grants often carry restrictions as well. How your stock grant is delivered to you, and whether or not it is vested, are the key factors when determining tax treatment.

It's all about the "Fiscal Cliff" and ending Bush's tax breaks and Obama wanting the plus 250 grand earners to lose the tax break. Simple fact is congress is made up of millionaires and they don't want to raise their taxes. They also want the break for their millionaire campaign donors and PACs. He has to renew the breaks for everyone or let it expire for everyone. The super rich have "Tax Accountants" to move their money around to avoid paying taxes
Better yet push all career politicians over a cliff.
Maybe if Romney didn't keep changing his stance and hadn't come across as a self righteous snob who showed nothing but contempt for the middle class, maybe half the voters would not of voted against him.

Wouldn't make a big difference as the world banks and oil barons run the nation. Presidents are but mere pen puppets. If Frogs had wings they wouldn't bump their assses too.

I find it most interesting that all the administration and the Republicans talk about is cutting Social Security and Medicare. Medicare the seniors pay for. Social Security is paid by all working Americans, so please tell me why our president and congress are not cutting those that have for years and years refused to work, and if anything the illegals that pay nothing but send money back to their home countrys and what benefit is that to America? Why are we still sending foreign aid to countrys that want to kill us? Why have we not forced countrys that owe us money to pay it back as you can be assured the chinese want theirs back. Why do we allow government employees that are considered non essential to continue to have a paycheck for a non essential job? Why do we have fees and licenses that inhibit business and it is just another tax? Why are we still paying to keep the United Nations when member states are in arrears? Shall I add more?
