2021 tax filing season fast facts
"There are some big changes to be aware of starting with those stimulus checks. First of all, they're not taxable income. However, about 12 million Americans didn't receive the benefits that they were eligible for, remember. These are the checks that went out last year for up to $1200.600 dollars, and about 12 million Americans didn't receive them. So if you made up to $75,000 as an individual or $150,000 as a married couple, you can file for the rebate recovering credit on the taxes for 2020. That will allow you to receive the benefits you were eligible for. If you didn't get that check in the mail, unemployment benefits Those are taxable. So you do have to file those on your income taxes. But another thing to consider is that in this last year there was a significant amount of fraud. We're told on unemployment benefits, which means if you get a 10 99 g form in the mail It doesn't look right to you. It's for benefits that you didn't receive. You want to immediately contact your state government and let them know that you believe someone else has filed benefits in your name. These air, not benefits that you will be taxed for if they were filed fraudulently, But you do have to let your state government no. And then make sure as you're filing your taxes that the state government sends you the form the true and accurate form that belongs to you finally worked from home. Ah, lot of people did this in the last year. The people who are eligible to keep it as a deduction on their tax forms are those who are self employed. If you're an employee Even if you spent money to work from home, But you're an employee of a company. Unfortunately, you can't claim those benefits if you're self employed, and you exclusively uses space as a workspace from home. You could make sure to take those deductions.

Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020
"Regardless of a vaccine for so many americans. This is emergency time. We're so close. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and yet people are going to the hospital now. Businesses are getting closed now and without financial relief a lot. More people will lose their jobs some getting ready to spend their first winter in homeless shelters but this week you're also seeing some hope in washington that a deal can get done for the first time in months it seems. Lawmakers are close to passing another round of support. Compromise is within reach behind the scenes. There was clearly some bipartisan cooperation. Happening for example many democrats wanted direct stimulus checks sent to americans will it now appears some republicans and perhaps even the white house itself may be on board with that idea. Some workers have gotten sick. Have sued their employers for not protecting them better from the virus. Republicans wanted to shield corporations from that type of lawsuit. Mitch mcconnell is no longer saying that really has to be included. But they're so lots of hangups lots of reasons. This could be sunk so this morning. I don't want to talk about the partisan back and forth. I wanna ask a simple question what happens. Congress does not pass a code relief. Bill what are the consequences days weeks and months from now. Abc's chief business and economics correspondent. Rebecca jarvis is here rebecca. Can you smell it the stakes for me at the capital this week will brad incredibly important. It is make or break. It's life or death. I'm just day by day trying to figure it out day. Bonday that in the pocket of for example a single mother like angel recently spoke to in detroit who works in a hospital makes minimum wage. Therein has three school age. Children were that school. As of last friday is no longer available to her in person. The choice of work and kids shouldn't be a choice. I want to be the best mom i can be. This could be the difference between her being able to afford to pay for childcare to have someone come to her home or to even drop her children off at daycare or her potentially having to quit her job because she has no other alternative to care for her children and at the same time work so it's been challenging trying to keep going to work and prevent being far low or fire to keep you know inconsequential our lives and our lifestyles. But at the same time some nights. I go to sleep. And i'm like why am i going to work. What are the domino's that would actually fall. Just nothing happened like. Can you walk me through how that would play out from. The halls of washington to small business will two things especially are hammering. Small businesses and many small businesses in this country happened to be independent restaurants. They have not given us money and they have shut us down. We cannot survive. My staff cannot survive in one case particularly in california. You have a number of restaurants who've been told to close their doors because of the spike in cova cases now that we are going to close the outside. It's of our employees go home. And how are they going to pay their bills in new york while restaurants can remain open and they can serve primarily outdoors. They have a tipping point because things have just gotten so cold that as goldman sachs estimates about forty degrees. Is the tipping point where people are no longer going to be interested in dining outside while we're there in new york. The summer has just been a disaster to scott freezing cold after thanksgiving and the world has just completely fallen apart. Earlier this year in september the national restaurant association pulled all of its members and said how many of you can make it. The next six months without any additional aid from the government forty percent of the national restaurant association members. These are small independent restaurants across the country. Said they weren't gonna make it six months without help. That was three months ago. We're already in the territory where they weren't sure they were going to be able to survive. We see all these posters that were all in this together but it doesn't seem like we are when a particular industry as being targeted stricter than others for many of them. they're using their home as collateral their mortgage as collateral. What does it mean if they go out of business it means they could lose their home. It also means that their retirement savings for for many small businesses. The retirement account is the business itself. You've seen from j. p. morgan for example. They're now estimating the first quarter of next year. We'll see negative economic growth Moody's they're saying at this point that without help from the government we will see a double dip recession. And that's really what we're talking about here brad. What's you're not just envisioning like stays really bad. You're envisioning a scenario where it could even get a lot worse really suddenly affecting everyone with a potential deal rebecca here. I'm sure the average person would just take what they can get. But when you talk to economists business leaders are there things that need to be in this deal to avoid that disaster scenario. You just talked about well brad. According to a group of more than one. Hundred and twenty-five economists including jason furman who's a former top economic advisor to president obama. Those direct cash payments to american families are incredibly important. I need the help. My kid's name to eight other people's kids. The the the thing about stimulus checks is that they're one of the fastest ways to get people money that money gets spent immediately and it gets spent immediately in ways that can help give the economy a little bit of juice at a time where people have been pulling back but once you start looking at what various analysts in what economists are calling for. They're saying at this point sooner rather than bigger is better in fact If you look at what. Bank of america's chief economist is calling for right now. She wants to see money for testing for the vaccine and contact tracing pandemic employment insurance. That's the employment insurance for gig workers and people who have lost coverage because they've already extended out all of the benefits because they've been collecting benefits for too long and then direct aid to small businesses. Moody's mark zandi adds to that list. Rental assistance among the programs ending soon is the cdc eviction moratorium. If it expires it will lead up to five million tenants facing eviction in january the beginning of winter. I've never been in this situation ever before my life. I've never had to come out to beg for help. And even calling any of this stimulus is sort of a misnomer. It's really about relief. So that people can just get to the other side.

U.S. Unemployment Rate Fell to 13.3% in May
"Dr for more than seven hundred points after the labor department's me unemployment report was far better than anticipated ABC chief business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis two and a half million Americans went back to work in the month of may the unemployment rate instead of going higher came down to thirteen point three percent those are still elevated levels of unemployment and joblessness in this country but the re hiring has been widespread in areas like leisure and hospitality retail education and healthcare they all added jobs in the month of may on Twitter president trump called the numbers a stunner and later in the rose garden we had the greatest economy in the history of the world and that strength let us get through this horrible and that may be called the numbers a rocket ship analysts had been expecting the unemployment rate this month to be around twenty percent instead it came in at about thirteen and a half percent of the American work force Jim Ryan

Coronavirus: Rise in US unemployment leads to food bank queues
"Never seen that so many people right now many people finding themselves for the first time in the sobering images there of long lines at food banks as households across the country grapple with the economic effects of coronavirus many Americans are getting some relief as those much awaited stimulus checks are beginning to arrive via direct deposit for more let's bring in ABC news chief business and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis and ABC news senior White House correspondent Cecilia Vega nice to see you both this morning and Rebecca I want to start with you and those images of those incredibly long lines at food banks the C. E. O. of feeding America said she's never witnessed the system being more strained they've actually had to turn people away that's clearly a result of those seventeen million people in the last three weeks flight filing for unemployment so how much worse can this get what were the numbers are mind boggling but the images are also a stark reminder of the fact that half of this country doesn't have emergency savings and when we see numbers like that seventeen million layoffs in the span of three weeks you start to understand how these projections the forecasts which sounded completely unbelievable a month ago fifteen percent thirty percent unemployment in this country you start to see how that becomes more realistic and what we've seen throughout this crisis is that initially the most acutely impacted industries were the ones that laid off their employees hotels restaurants airlines which clearly had issues with lockdowns but now we've seen a larger ripple effect of Martha to areas like retail even doctors offices which aren't seeing the same number of people coming in the door because they're afraid of getting sick are now having to make decisions about whether to keep employees or leave them off so Rebecca when you factor in the terrible have health risks and the economic risk which is exactly what president trump is trying to do now what are the metrics being used for the business world well the business community is looking to law enforcement they're looking to the healthcare community to understand how things would potentially reopen but the biggest companies in America since day one of these lockdowns have been looking at how they might conduct themselves going forward they're looking at social distancing their looking at working from home but of course that isn't going to work for every employee when things do begin to reopen if you look at China for example as a template for how things might look here and of course there are a lot of differences between the U. S. the openings when you get back to normal it is messy and uneven you don't see everything there's no switch that gets turned on Martha where the whole world comes back to life and everybody goes back to work day one you do see where there is more pent up demand for example maybe at the hairdressers at the doctor's offices at the dentist you see the re openings there and people start to resume but for retail for malls those are areas which when the analysts look at what the future holds it is going to be a much slower opening and the big question now when it comes to getting back to work is childcare a lot of schools are now out for the rest of the year so what do those families do about their child care if they're called back into the office privacy and surveillance this is something you just discussed with Mr Bossert the idea that we now have to have a conversation as a country about our privacy and the surveillance that might be necessary to track this and then finally there is the question about monitoring whose job is that going to be our companies and a lot of companies are thinking about this are they taking this on or is the government taking this on

another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Energy prices spike after Saudi oil attack, US blaming Iran
"Begin tonight with President trump and what he said late today on the possibility possibility of US military action against Iran after that massive attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia one of the world's largest facilities targeted there and unprecedented it'd blow to the world's energy supply drivers here in the US will see this too in gas prices administration officials quickly pointing the finger at Iran the president at one point tweeting tweeting the US is locked and loaded but tonight what he said when asked is Iran behind this and will the US strike ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Carl was in the Oval Office asking the questions after the attack on the world's largest oil refinery in Saudi Arabia today's a day a restrained response from the President War with anybody. I'm somebody they would like not to have war attack produced an inferno so large the smoke was visible from Outer Space Senior Administration official tells. ABC News attack involved nearly a dozen cruise missiles and at least twenty armed drones launched from Iranian soil within our secretary of state. Mike pompeo pointed the finger directly at Iran tweeting. Iran is now launched an unprecedented accidents attack on the world's energy supply today. The president was less definitive evidence proof that Iran was behind the attack that way as soon as we find out definitively. We'll let you know immediately. Following the attacks President Trump tweeted the United States was quote locked and loaded depending on verification but today he said this that was an attack on Saudi Arabia and There wasn't an attack on us but we would certainly help help them. They've been a great ally. Do you still think it's the responsibility of the Saudis to defend themselves. Oh I think it is certainly the responsibility of them to do a big big deal of the defense. The fact is that the Saudis going to have a lot of involvement in this if we decide to do some think I think they'll be very much involved and that includes payment and they understand that fully the iranian-backed who the rebels in Yemen have claimed responsibility wants ability releasing a propaganda video of drones flying over the Saudi refinery Iran for its part insists. It had nothing to do with it. Let's revisit missile wrong. I think I'll have a stronger message or maybe no message at all when we get the final results of what we're looking at but right now it's too soon to say this plenty of time. You know there's no rush. Giancarlo this live at the White House tonight and John the president had tweeted the US is locked and loaded but today it did seem there was a much more cautious tone with you shortly. David he talked quite a bit about the strength of the US military and the US the ability to have military response but this did not sound like a president eager to get involved in another conflict in the Middle East all right giancarl leading us off on a Monday John John Thank you the price of oil has already soared across the globe how soon will driver see it right here in the US in gas prices at the pump. Let's get right to ABC's chief business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis with US slop tonight as well Rebecca well David oil prices spiked immediately on that news up fifteen percent today the biggest one day surge in more within a decade in for consumers that means higher prices at the pump anywhere between ten and twenty five cents higher in the coming weeks in particular higher prices in California neo which relies more heavily on imports from Saudi Arabia. The big question going forward is how quickly Saudi Arabia can bring production back on on line and whether this conflict escalates the United States is still the world's largest energy producer but this is a global market David and what happens in the Middle East impacts prices and consumers here.

"Okay i think that some of the worst advice or maybe even the thing that i see creative entrepreneurs do before they really get out and into their business like into the grind of their business is feeling like they have to spend money to make money and you hear that all the time you've got to spend money to make money and i think in some cases that's true like whenever you get to a point that you're scaling but i think that whenever you are first starting out you just need to make some money and so one of my mantras is just make one hundred dollars today and i feel like that can really get you into the flow and and make you really creative about getting that one customer or selling that one piece of jewelry or whatever it is that you're doing you just need to get one out there to start off with you don't need to have beautiful branding you don't even need have a website yet you don't need a higher publicist you just need to get that one client and so that's a mistake or you know a piece of advice i see people falling down and it gets them in debt sometimes they're branding out something and spending thirty thousand dollars on an entire branding package for for a career that they realize they don't even like once it's launched so i would say you know on the flip side of you have to spend money to make money as just get that one client or sell that one thing and think about just making a hundred dollar deal today it doesn't have to be six figures it doesn't have to be seven figures just get out there and do it so to the skeptic who says okay kathleen.
