    President Joe Biden invoked his trademark whisper on Monday afternoon when he lamented that it's 'not right' billionaires pay less in taxes than 'a firefighter and a teacher.' He opened his speech by recalling his father previously stating, 'Don't tell me what you value. Show me your budget -- I'll tell you what you value.'  The commander-in-chief was addressing Americans from the White House after unveiling his $5.8 trillion spending plan for the next fiscal year, which also includes a new tax on billionaires and aims to ease supply chain bottlenecks, beef up American cyber-defenses and reduce the crime wave that's currently plaguing many U.S. cities. The president also took aim at his political rival when he complained of the 'fiscal mess' that former President Donald Trump left the country in at the end of 2020.  'The wealthy and corporations will finally begin to pay their fair share,' Biden said toward the beginning of his address. He then empathized with everyday people who have been hit hard by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and out-of-control inflation, which hit...
    Chicago city workers who don't have their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, a group that includes about 2,800 cops, will be placed on nondisciplinary no-pay status on Sunday after the city won another court battle over its mandate last week. The city will consider disciplining workers on a case-by-base basis, said the office of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Friday. 'All city employees, including Chicago police officers, who fail to comply may also face disciplinary action, up to and including termination. These decisions will be addressed at an individual and department level, and are being undertaken in a manner that will not impact public safety or the continuity of everyday government operations,' her office said. About 2,800 Chicago police officers and 300 firefighters remain unvaccinated, according to WGN.  As of December, 6,621 officers had applied for religious exemptions, but 58 percent were still waiting for an answer. Only 1.5 percent of the requests had been granted. Chicago is facing a shortage of police officers as crime continues to spike in the Windy City, with robberies and murders outpacing last year's...
    RYAN KAVANAUGH has accused Dana White of paying UFC fighters the same amount of cash he pays Triller's 'ushers'. Fighter pay in mixed martial arts' premier promotion is one of the biggest talking points in the sport, with fans and athletes alike believing combatants are underpaid. 4UFC boss Dana White has been accused of not paying his fighters enoughCredit: Getty 4And boss Ryan Kavanaugh has accused White of paying what he pays 'ushers' at Triller eventsCredit: GETTY Kavanaugh is part of that group and vocalised his discontent at the portion of the yearly revenue UFC fighters receive during the inaugural Triller Triad Combat Show on Saturday night. He said: “I did ask him (Dana White) if he wanted to come to learn how a proper production is done because, you know, Dana’s idea of a proper production is throw up a little rusty ring. "He will pay his fighters what we pay our ushers. "You know, throw one little fight, have a guy knock the guy out, call it a night. "This is what a production is… and I thought...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Three weeks after a self-imposed deadline, state lawmakers still haven’t reached an agreement on the details of the $250 million for frontline worker bonuses, leaving some frustrated. The working group was supposed to strike a deal by Sept. 6, but still are working through disagreements about who should qualify and how large checks should be. READ MORE: Where Have All The Workers Gone? And When Are They Coming Back? Mary Turner, president of the Minnesota Nurses Association, said she isn’t surprised the deadline passed and that some of her coworkers in the COVID-19 unit doubt that any checks will ever come. But with cases rising and the delta variant spreading, she hopes the money comes sooner rather than later. Through tears, she said it’s not about the dollar amount, but the recognition “hero” pay would bring. “We just need validation that what we did and what we’re continuing to do is appreciated. And that’s what this would do,” Turner said. “At this point, this would be a much-needed boost for our morale.” The co-chairs of the working group expressed...
    We can have all the things, but we have to fight for them. Well how about this.  x"The federal government is not a family. And it's not a small business. And it's not a local government. And it's not a state government," @RepJohnYarmuth says at Rules Committee hearing. "We can spend whatever we need to spend in the interest of serving the American people."— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) August 23, 2021 Rep. John Yarmuth isn’t just any old congressperson. He’s chair of the House Budget Committee, and having this basic truth said out loud—“We can spend whatever we need to spend in the interest of serving the American people”—is progress. It’s especially key for a budget leader right now as Congress is putting together the budget reconciliation bill for President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better, the plan that could truly be transformative for America. It’s essential that the deficit peacocks are answered—like Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin, who continue to insist that the number is too big even though they won’t say what needs to be sacrificed. Stephanie Kelton, former chief economist on the...
    Constantine Johnny | Moment | Getty Images The IRS may be extending the deadline to file your annual taxes for 2020 to May 17, but there's no time like now to get started on them — no matter your circumstances. Perhaps you owe money that you don't currently have. Maybe your life has been turned upside down and doing your taxes is the last thing you want to do. But don't even think about not filing a tax return. "It's a terrible idea," said Nayo Carter-Gray, founder of 1st Step Accounting, of not filing. "It's one of the worst things you can do." Lisa Greene-Lewis, a tax expert at TurboTax, concurs. "It is definitely a bad idea," she said. "File the return even if you can't pay what you owe." Let's start with the penalties. If you don't file your return, you'll be assessed a penalty of 5% of the taxes due per month, up to a maximum of 25% of the unpaid amount.More from Smart Tax Planning:Here's a look at more tax-planning news.

    DENVER (CBS4)– Coronavirus has changed our lives in many ways including how we pay for things. Many businesses have gone cashless out of safety concerns and that has hurt more than 7 million people who don’t have bank accounts. (credit: CBS) While some of them don’t trust banks or have credit problems, according to the Federal Reserve Corporation, most don’t make enough money to maintain a minimum balance. Laura Rodriguez is among them. Her neighborhood grocery store is one of the places that has switched to plastic only. “So, we have to drive an extra 20-30 minutes to get to stores that do take cash,” said Rodriguez. She says life is hard enough with six kids doing online school in a pandemic without having to worry about whether a business will accept her money. “I couldn’t believe in the United States that I couldn’t pay with cash.” (credit: CBS) State Rep. Alex Valdez is in disbelief, too. “And I thought, ‘Wow, is this already not a law where you have accept to cash as payment?’ and as it turns out,...

    ARLINGTON, Texas — If Blake Snell winds up in New York at some point during his active athletic career, I’m pretty sure he’d be good for either the Yankees or the Mets. I am 100 percent certain he’d be great for The Post. The left-hander, who will start Game 2 of this World Series for the Rays at Globe Life Field on Wednesday night, ranks as good enough a pitcher to have won the 2018 American League Cy Young Award. He also ranks as compelling enough a quote to regularly draw headlines, and not the types that would make him a bad teammate or employee or any such liability. “I just think a lot of people don’t talk about us because there’s other teams to talk about,” Snell said Tuesday before Game 1, “but when you look at this team, it’s a very fun team to watch, very fun team to talk about. We just don’t have the [Mike] Trouts or things like that, or the [Mookie] Betts and [Cody] Bellingers and [Clayton] Kershaws. We don’t have that just because...
    RALEIGH -- Streaming services are very popular right now and scammers know that and are taking advantage of it.This particular scam targets Roku customers and it happened when an ABC11 viewer purchased a new Roku and went online to register it. Instead of clicking on the legit Roku website, they clicked on a website not affiliated with Roku that offered to help set up the device. When he put the activation code in, he got this error with a number to call. You don't have to pay a fee to set up your device for streaming services. When he called the number and gave the representative his password and device information but then was asked to pay the $87 activation fee, and that's where the scam comes in as there is no activation fee to set up a Roku.Roku does have a warning on their website about this scam and it doesn't just happen with Roku, but any company that requires an activation as it's very easy for scammers to create copycat websites.To prevent getting ripped off always make...
    Q: My husband, granddaughter and I were traveling Interstate 680 using the carpool lane. The signage said FasTrak, and another sign said HOV 3 or more. We don’t have FasTrak because we don’t travel those roads frequently. We were three in the car but got a ticket in the mail. Isn’t there carpool access anymore? Carole deCordova A: Yes, there is. But you need FasTrak transponder to use the carpool/express lanes. You may not use it often, but you’ll be glad you got one when you have it. Carpools and other eligible vehicles travel toll-free or pay half-price tolls. Solo drivers pay full tolls. Q: My FasTrak transponder slips off the windshield more than it should. When will better ones be available? Susan H., Berkeley The adjustable FasTrak Flex transponder. (Metropolitan Transportation Commission)  A: Not sure, but an app company in Southern California is offering another option for FasTrak service that enables you to get rid of the transponder.
