"How many times did we hear Right Oh yeah right Racist sexist homophobic xenophobic Islamophobic you name it And unfortunately there are people like that Well and people like Rick said who are polling on this stuff and turning it into talking points How about president Obama Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we had that allowed you to thrive Wait for it Somebody invested in roads and bridges If you got a business that you didn't build that Somebody else made that happen You didn't build that basket of deplorables high class problem Jeannie this is how Washington works right It is And since we want to make it bipartisan let's not forget like Mitt Romney's binders full of women They've got them on both sides You know I would just say that in this case unlike in the case of Romney or Clinton or Obama you have the chief of staff So I think it's a real sort of error on his part to be retweeting This is why they say be very very careful and stay off Twitter This is not something that Joe Biden said Rose is something his chief of staff said But you know let's take a step back The Republicans want to frame themselves as concerned and many of them are about people you know in the working class But let's look at the policies coming forward and this is what Democrats have to do The one thing the Republicans did when they took The White House and had Congress is they passed tax cuts for the wealthy You have Democrats here now and it doesn't look pretty It's a lot of sausage making but what they are working on is trying to pull that back and to do the work that is needed for all Americans including the lower in the middle classes I mean that's why we are debating things like extending the child tax credit You know issues involving paid family leave So Democrats have to get back on their message which is their focus is on the lower and the middle classes the president has promised not to increase taxes above a certain amount And Republicans can make this case about inflation and I think inflation is critically important But Democrats can respond to this and they have to show that they are really focused on inflation as well High class problem ricketts exactly the opposite of what Joe Biden is.

Wall Street Journal Explains the Reality of the Democrat '$3.5 Trillion' Bill
"The Wall Street Journal a couple of months back explained exactly what's going on here They said the budget resolution fact sheet Democrats circulated includes only a bare bones description of the bill's major programs for tax credits new entitlements healthcare climate and housing Some categories include this revealing caveat quote the duration of each program's enhancement will be determined based on scoring and committee input That's Washington speak for admitting the budget will be built on phony assumptions and gimmicks Democrats know they're proposed tax hikes and dubious pay force will not come close to fully funding every major program that President Biden has asked us for As Schumer claimed Their plan is to include every program but start small and pretend they're temporary This will let them skirt the budget reconciliation rule that spending can not add to the deficit outside a ten year budget window without triggering the 60 vote threshold to pass the filibuster rule So even in this they play with the books they play with the numbers They're righteous and compassionate rather than Ponzi schemers that should go to prison Every one of these bastards should go to prison
Biden wants to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations. Here's why that's going to be hard
"Biden has said he wants profitable corporations to pay their fair share in taxes but under the latest tax legislation some companies would still be able to pay nothing. According to the democratic proposal approved this month by the house ways and means committee the top corporate tax rate would jump from twenty one percent to twenty six point five percent but our reporter richard rubin says the bill doesn't address the reasons that profitable companies sometimes don't pay taxes the company that aren't paying taxes or paying. None are often doing things that the government is encouraged them to do by giving them tax breaks the do it so for example that includes investing in equipment where you get a full and immediate deduction it includes doing corporate research so that you are you get a tax credit for that and i think what democrats are doing is they're saying look we know there's some companies out there that don't pay taxes and are profitable but we're not going to solve the equation for that. We're not gonna fix eight on that we're going to address what we see. Is maybe bigger issues. And they're going to focus on trying to encourage companies to do things that democrats want them to do invest in solar power invest in low income housing. And they're not willing to give up those goals. In order to fully address. This idea that every profitable company has to pay something in taxes. But a white house official. Says that.

The democratic party is ruining the united states of america because it's controlled by the left and the left ruins everything touches to deny that is to engage in wishful thinking and it's inexcusable means. You don't have the courage to say the left is is evil. The left is evil. The left everywhere is evil. Not liberals liberals are my eve liberals often lack courage politically. They're often wonderful individuals. I love some of them personally but they won't acknowledge because it's very hard to stare at evil to destroy america. The last best hope of mankind is that's not evil then. I need a definition of evil. So i'm very specific. And what. I mean by evil in this case. They're destroying this country. Intentionally taxpayer payers should understand. The magnitude of the benefits is the wall street journal editorial about the the The new entitlements that they are giving for children basic income for families with children basic income for all families before the expansion the average child credit for a family below one hundred percent of the poverty line was about nine hundred. Seventy five dollars now. It's five thousand. Four hundred twenty one dollars that comes on top of their transfer programs such as food stamps and the earned income tax credit. The child entitlement will reach well into the middle class which is part of the political goal of course at the end of democracy when people understand. They could vote for politicians. Who will give them money. That's it it's over then nobody votes for what's better for the country they vote for. How do i get more money.

Who, of course, don't pay their fair share of taxes. And we're going to give all these new Government welfare programs. And by the way, not a single one of those programs has a work requirement or an education requirement. There will be completely dependent on the state. The worst part of it to me is just the factual lies by To say that you have lots of corporations who don't pay any taxes. Lots of rich people, quote unquote who don't pay enough taxes. Their fair share, and we have to level the playing field. Look at. I don't want to level the playing field. I want to raise the playing field. I want to expand the pie. I want ordinary middle income blue collar wage earners to get more wages. To have better equipment and technology so they can be more productive. Then their family incomes will go up, all of which happened following the trump tax cuts. The Biden tax increases are going to reverse everything here. I mean, it's just the idea that $400,000 Nobody under $400,000 don't pay higher taxes. Well, think of it. This. First of all the joint tax committee shows that that's untrue. That people there's a little bit you're right below and the 30,000 that has something to do with the implementation of the child tax credit. But the main thing here is People around 100 or $200,000. $300,000 You know you're talking about families. Families we're talking about. It could be two incomes.

Infrastructure, Jobs and Climate Change
"So i wanna start with your giving us an overview of the infrastructure. Plan as you understand it you know what do you what do you see is specifically in it. And what do you think the priorities are. Well thanks so much john. And it's a pretty comprehensive plan. And i think the general theme to keep in mind for your viewers is. This is very much a jobs plan. But there's no question in the minds of anyone who's read or in the administration that the belief behind the plan is that it at the same it deals with really four interwoven challenges that the administration is facing and of course the first is the post pandemic reality. The second is the economic downturn. The third is the climate crisis and the fourth is inequality and racial equity and the disproportionate environmental harm and other harms had replaced on low income communities and communities of color. No not putting those in any kind of priority. They're all of the utmost important but the general theme is that the road to economic recovery is through climate action and so it isn't infrastructure. A jobs plan. But there's no question that it very very intentionally addresses the climate crisis in a number of ways and know that the bite administration signaled his plans. He's been remarkably consistent with messages of last summer. If you saw the the biden clean energy biden plan he had a whole blueprint around clean energy and environmental justice and he has come through with flying colors in this plan. You know first and foremost it really is a building up of the clean energy sector the job-generating clean energy sector and the lesson from two thousand nine. As you all know now from the stimulus that then vice president biden worked on it. It just was simply not enough. Finding it wasn't enough finding it wasn't enough where the energy sector so this is gonna largely come through in the form of an array of renewable energy tax credits various forms and which are wildly popular and successful Those are really important. We'll certainly get the support of the business and there's something called a direct pay provisions that is important to renewable energy developers for those who may not have the adequate tax equity to benefit from a tax incentive. That's built into the into the whole thing at this point. I want to say that. There's something called justice. Forty which is outlined from the very beginning. President biden made it clear that forty percent of the benefits of his investments would go to underserved frontline disadvantaged communities

The white house is hoping to turn to its economic agenda marketplaces and dealers on the line with more of those priorities. That's right david. The white house is looking to pass more than four trillion dollars in domestic spending. Which includes that bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that biden is arguing is even more pressing after hurricane ida devastated the gulf coast and left some of the northeast flooded and he approved major disaster declarations up north. And he's also touring the damage in new york and new jersey today. And you know that he's going to be pushing that build back better agenda in the process and the bulk of the spending would come as a budget reconciliation package. It's called with the price tag of some three and a half trillion dollars with a t but sounds like summer worried about spending too much. Yeah that's exactly right. That's spending would effectively direct toward different social programs. Things like family services health. lots of environmental programs. Now senator joe manchin of west virginia. He's a pivotal democrat. Whose vote is key to getting anything through the senate. He's already said that. He's worried about the government racking up so much debt but the biden team is confident that he's going to be persuaded now. Biden's also continued to argue for a higher corporate tax rate to help pay for community. College paid family the expansion of child tax credit as well but in terms of capturing the spotlight afghanistan and pandemic. These are not going away. That's exactly right. They're not and it's really biden's hope that he can shift focus to his economic priorities but that could be easier said than done especially after two important pieces of the cove in nineteen relief.

TikTok Is Making Tax Policy Cool
"Dylan last month. You wrote about the tick-tock response to the child. Tax credit which are the monthly payments of up to three hundred dollars that went directly to parents in need during the pandemic. So what is it about these checks that made them so me mobile so i think The most important part of it is that the checks were not universal where nearly universal for the people being targeted.

And if it could affect your future tax refund so let's start out with a primer on what it is exactly the child tax credit. It's not new. It's something that's been around actually. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety seven however due to covert relief known as the american rescue plan of twenty one the credit has changed significantly for a limited period. If you have kids you're probably familiar with the child tax credit. But if you're like me and you don't have kids. The credit may be news to you. So let's talk about it. The child tax credit is a federal benefit for qualifying tax payers with one or more qualifying dependent children. It puts more money back into the pockets of families. By reducing the amount of tax they owe or increasing their tax refunds. Unlike a tax deduction attacks credit works very differently. It cuts your tax bill on a dollar for dollar basis and that makes it a lot more valuable than a tax deduction. Let me give you an example. Let's.

Both of which are under the age of six which is a deciding line. I was interested in on what the impact was going to be. And then obviously you have two older kids so this child tax credit when i say tax credit what does that. What does that mean to you. I look at it. As it's a credit i get on my tax return every year for having kids but i really don't know what that means. Yes so actually. That's pretty much spot on prior to nineteen ninety-seven people who had kids just had to deal with it in nineteen ninety-seven they. they pat. The government passed the first child tax credit which was four hundred dollars. A kid basically came off of your adjusted gross income as long as your kids were under seventeen so it was just a flat. Four hundred dollars per year per year. Okay but not very stimulative but again you know if some if i was walking down the street and there was four one hundred dollar bills laying on the side of the road.

It shouldn't let taxes go up working families. We shouldn't let child. Poverty continue to stain the conscience or dragged down our economy. And so i say to my colleagues in congress this tax cut for working families is something we should extend not end next. You joining us now. Is lauren egan white house reporter at nbc news. Thanks for joining us. Learn thanks for having me. The expanded child tax credit. The first wave of monthly payments have started hitting bank accounts already. These payments were included as part of the american rescue plan. The biden administration is very happy with these say that this could help reduce child poverty by as much as fifty percent. Lauren tell us a little bit more about these monthly payments. Now that's right these. Are you know some listeners might be familiar with them. They have existed in the past but these are now expanded. It's going to be more money and it's going to include a more people so before if you didn't file taxes or you didn't have any income you were left out of these benefits. That's all changed now. So that's why the white house is really touting this saying that these payments are going to have the the potential to cut child poverty in half which is a huge change from how the tax credit you used to work before but still you know the program faces some challenges you mentioned. The eligibility has changed. But you still have to sign up for it. You still have to go onto the web portals and all that to be able to claim this money and the white house's acknowledge that this is one huge downside of this program if you don't file taxes then you have to go to the irs website and submit all of your information You know an ira or government website. You're familiar with how cumbersome they can be so that's going to be significant challenge. Another problem with it is that right. Now it's just an english show and not speak english as a first language dot going to be challenging as well and then a third challenge is just some people. Don't know that this program exists. You saw president biden on thursday. Gave a big speech about the child. Tax credit vice president harris also talked about it. But if you don't know that this program exists and it's pretty hard to get someone to go and actually sign up with the irs. Thirty nine million families are eligible. And who have already filed taxes or received the stimulus payments. They're already in the system. They don't need to do anything but they estimate that there's four million to eight million eligible children that are at risk of missing out on this because you know of a number of reasons. These families need to go sign up for that. So lauren walk us through whose qualifying. How much money are we getting. What are the changes. So any person who claims independent who seventeen years or younger qualifies for this tax credit and depending on how old your kids are. That's gonna depend on how much money you get. Your child is six years and younger. And you're going to see a little bit more money than if they're six to seventeen and the irs determining your kids age depending on how old they are in this calendar year so for example if your child turns eighteen and twenty twenty one they are not going to be eligible for this payment and there's also an income cap so you're gonna get the full benefit if you are a single parent who makes up to one hundred and twenty thousand dollars a year or your joe beyeler who makes a hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year and the payment start to taper out the more money you make with really phasing out once you're above that four hundred thousand dollar income threshold features of this obviously is that their monthly payments. You can also opt to get it as a lump sum at the end of the tax season and all. But that's one of the things you know. Nothing is simple when it comes to taxes. Unfortunately and that's one of the things that could trip some families up depending on the tax filing that used. If you made more money you know these prepayments that they're making here could kind of bite in the but later on so again. Oldest information has to go to the irs so if you for example how to kid this year and you think that you should be getting credit. Let's say you got married. You lost the job anything like that. That could impact. How much money you getting. You have to file this all with the irs. Now for family changes at for example if you had your first kiss year. Dot can't be uploaded with the irs until later on in the summer there's two different irs portal's one of them is just to register your tax information so there are non filer. That's going to be a separate portal. Then family changes that you might want to register with the irs. Obviously having two different. Irs government websites only makes us a more complicated and more challenging process to folks. The white house did release a new website. What she asked now puts us at three different websites really a new website this week to try and streamline some of the information so many folks who are confused about what they need to do. The white house does have a new landing page. That tries to help people sort through this but as you mentioned anytime we're talking about taxes the irs is never ever easy these expanded credits end. In december president biden has called for a four year extension to all of this would need congressional approval. How does that look. I mean is there support for something like this. Yeah that is a great question and we don't have the answer to that right now. White house press secretary. Jen psaki was actually awesome about this. During thursday's briefings whether or not biden would accept a spending package. That's being negotiated right now with senators if you would accept something that didn't have the extension to it and she said that biden was open to changes to his proposal. Which kind of leaves the door open for there to not be that four year extension but a lot of progressives democratic progressives have said that they want to make this permanent not just a four year extension. This needs to be permanent. This is just a huge wave of money. That's going to be going to a lot of families up to three hundred dollars per kid per month for some folks so this is going to be a huge challenge in battle. I think we're going to see on capitol hill and the coming days as we continue to talk these infrastructure and spending package negotiations lauren. Egan white house reporter at nbc news. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks for having me..

"The one thing to note is that the the digital media tax credit takes about a year it used to be about a year and a half to two years to get approved a but they've cut it down to about a year and that means that you could have claim shred within that year. So you're going to have to identify. What potential shred that. You're gonna be cleaning and subtract that from the digital media because you can't double dip for both so either you're claiming for For digital media or you're claiming for shred now when you're developing educational products for children under twelve. Most likely it's not going to be eligible for shred so most of your development is gonna go under digital media. Also the digital media tax credit covers a lot more labor than what shred would be eligible. So if you have illustrators Restorers like people who are artists. That wouldn't typically be eligible under shred. Those all can be eligible under the digital media tax credit again. It can't be one thing is in. This is probably again is that it can't be a not for profit. You have to being taxes. You have to be a a canadian or a canadian corporation. that is at his for profit. So eligible eligible expenditure. So we'll get into this real quickly. I'm -tario labor expenditures and one thing. We'll get into the eligibility of subcontractors because there is a little finicky kinda ruler so must be paid to individuals that reside in terrible and it must be. They must be directly attributable to the development of the of the product itself. That you're developing so again that's vague. But that can include a lot of people it conclude pretty much anyone who's on your payroll who has touched the product types of development of the product paid for services rendered at a permanent establishment on interior and incurred in the three year period prior to the completion of the products. So it's something. I didn't touch on so what you can do. When you're claiming for a product because this product based so what that means is you can claim it what you've completed the product. Once the product is launched. The good thing about the digital media tax credit is you can go back up to three years and captured all of those costs that relate to the development of dot product from the fiscal year that it launched so if it launched in july. Or let's say we're we're in april launched in april this year. You back three years in claim all those costs going back to april three years ago now.

I've i'm encouraging people to go ahead. See if you qualify. See if your wages are down if you were shut down partially shut down you know it. I think your explanation helped me in the definition of what partially shutdown is so. Want to especially thank you for that because we you know we were concerned. You know even if you're not gonna get a check tomorrow because it doesn't look like you're going to know that it's out there at least get it balled. Yeah get a final and unfortunately it's going to be a weight and the credit will come back to in the form of paper check from the. Irs coming through regular mail so will yet snail mail so this is all gonna take some time to really process now twenty twenty one credits could be applied towards your current payroll taxes and you could choose to take advantage of it that way if you would like to but you need to be absolutely sure that you are qualified and that you know. The math is all done correctly in. I would recommend to people who are just at that twenty percent cuss like they're fully open and they're not quite sure if they're going to be twenty percent undergoing head and get through the quarter and do your books for the quarter then take a look at it and then take advantage of the credit and but if you are partially closed in twenty twenty one you can still take advantage of it as you go so taking advantage of the money right now might be the way to go for folks who absolutely no qualified. Today i'm going to thank you for democrat down for me in layman's terms. 'cause i'm outta pocket. You know i'm not doing this everyday now. You so helpful.

"You qualify if your business essentially runs the same and you have remote employees. That cuts out of mine. So i if it says you have office employees. They work on computers. You heard about this coming. Government did saying everybody else to go home but you guys basically picked up your laptops and plugged in to ethernet at home and started working from there and you really didn't miss a beat in revenue was all the same. The no you wouldn't qualify but if you're new was down how much could you qualify under that scenario in that scenario last year you'd have to be down more than fifty percent see it wasn't you know i've got companies. That aren't qualifying. It seems like it'd be so easy to qualify this. Not so i just keep restaurants. Just keep begging me in the head and bars that they would automatically qualify being. I haven't seen a restaurant or a bar that hasn't qualified. Okay all right all you wish. Toronto owners and bar owners out there and anybody that was shut down and saw a reduction in revenue. At least check it out. Now who this say. Somebody does their payroll on quickbooks. They are not. They are not wise enough to use a payroll. Just say what should they do. Let's just say they have a tax person. They go once a year to see so they don't have an adviser and they're doing quickbooks themselves. They like quick books to the payroll tax returns with gusto or someone of those gusts does not touching this stuff. Some of the payroll companies are not touching. This is in that right. that is right. We've heard that from a lot of people who are ringing our phones that our clients payroll company seemed to be saying figure out the numbers yourself and give them to us and then we'll file your adjusted returns but for the client to do the math. It gets very very complicated in this is why so you are able to take advantage of the credit. If you received the ppp loan in two thousand twenty but you can't double dip so if you have your forgiveness window of the time that you received ppp money you need to carve out the amount of your loan in the amount that you claimed for payroll so you got a loan for one hundred thousand and sixty percent of that was cleaned and went toward payroll for your p. forgiveness so you have to carve out sixty thousand dollars from the rtc credit as far as those wages because you can't claim that ppp wages and the rtc wages in the same year. See that makes sense to me. You can never double dip. Yeah you can never double-dip But it it does make sense but when you actually sit down to do the maps for somebody who does their own payroll through cookbooks gusto. They really are going to have to sit down with it and comb through the numbers. I recommend engaging with a professional to take a look at your payroll journals and the taxes paid and your and your forgiveness window because all of those things need to be considered while you're figuring out your credit i could see where people would just getting a lot of tr- they could get a lot of trouble in china do anything bad just by calculating it wrong in the backfires on them sudden. Somebody's go knock at the door and want their money back right now. I saw something interesting.

"tax credit" Discussed on The Frug Life
"From San Diego California. It's the Frugal Life podcast with your host Ricky Hershey. A lot of times people ask me as a CPA. What are some ways I can save money on taxes. Like what are the best deductions to look at after explaining to them? I'm not the kind of CPA that works on taxes. I explained. Well typically deductions require you spend an additional dollar to save $0.30 on taxes while actually $1 * your marginal tax rate and savings spending more on deductible items isn't going to net you more cash. Typically however with tax credits each dollar of credit reduces your tax burden by a dollar my guest. Justin is going to talk about an awesome credit the R&D credit, which might help you save big on your taxes. Thanks for inviting me on the show Ricky. I'm glad to be able run this segment to give a little background about myself. I am an educator turned entrepreneur. I taught for six years and just had an issue to bring more value to the world. Not the teachers don't bring a ton of value. But personally I needed to grow and find something that pushed me further. I started in flipping houses and eventually found my way to insurance and taxes. I found a niche within a tax industry that is just simply being missed by a lot of business owners my business helps profitable tax pain small to medium-sized business owner understand and use the research and development or R&D tax incentive out of all the R&D credits claimed 85% of those are claimed by America's biggest companies meaning only 15% of the credits were too small or medium-sized businesses. However, it's not because these businesses aren't qualifying. It's just they aren't claiming them. We help them claim them. On average we get back our clients 10 to $30,000 a year depending on the size of the business the number of employees and the type of work being done. That number can be much larger as well. We've had some get back hundreds of thousands of dollars here a few examples to highlight the potential of this incentive dental practice. We got back $74,000 a software developer job at $60,000 chiropractor. $25,000 Keller Williams Real Estate principal broker Miss Downing $800,000 a Chick-fil-A franchise owner hundred and ten thousand dollars with that much money being talked about the next question. I usually get is how do I qualify? There's something called the four-part test but I found it, this business owners more than it helps them. So we have business owners ask themselves the following questions if they answered yes to two or more of them. There's a high probability that qualify. So here are the questions wrong. Do you offer employee health insurance without receiving Wellness incentives? Do you custom design your Solutions over an off-the-shelf solution? Do you perform any design work? Do you have any other Publications out of city or state do you export products to other countries or have wholesale components to your business? Do you perform any training for yourself or your team via the Internet in the last five years have you upgraded or improves your website initiated any type of social media campaigns changed adjusted or improved your eCommerce software made adjustments to your business model changed your procedures or your processes lastly taken any risk within your business. Again. All you have to do is enter. Yes to two of those questions. You might be at a point Ricky. We are listeners like you say to themselves how have I never heard of this or why hasn't my CPA told me about this because I think my business would qualify before I can answer those questions. I think it's important to learn a little wage. About the history of this incentive to better understand why you haven't heard this from World War Two to nineteen eighty the US share of the auto economy went from 80% to 20% in 1980. Japan became the world Auto industry leader the spark to change the US want to keep their minds the best Minds on us soil. They wanted to be leaders in the world economy and one solution for doing that was to provide a monetary incentive to get businesses to innovate invent and create. Thus the R&D tax incentive was born from 1981 to 2015 disincentive expired and changed or fifteen times only United States biggest businesses could afford to keep up with it and use it in 2015 the path act permanently put the R&D Crown the tax code and opened. It's available and small businesses. Not just the big boys yet, even though it's been five years since its availability. We are still seeing 85% of R&D credits being used by the United States big dog. Japanese small businesses around the country are missing out on tens of thousands dollars a year and potentially hundreds of thousands dollars a year by not using this incentive with that background we can now broach the subject of why hasn't my CPA told me about this honest answer is I don't know but I have two possible solutions as to why first we like to simplify it this way. There are two sides of the tax code sent number one is pay as little as possible to deductions expenses Etc. Most CPAs understand are masters of this side of the tax code side. Number two is the credit rebate incentive side, which is just as large and complicated aside number one get far fewer CPAs understand and master this side of tax code. We are just one of many R&D tax credit firms Nationwide we help fill in the Gap where other CPAs don't feel as comfortable or knowledgeable. We've also found that many CPAs are reactive versus proactive mean a CPA can't help you tweak things to better qualify until it's too late another common question, I guess. Is will this spark and on it anyone or any business can be audited anytime regardless of what you are doing with that said the R&D incentive will not be the reason you get it on the process of qualifying for the credit requires a pre-audit from an IRS agent. They won't give you the money unless you qualify the whole process takes about 1 to 3 months to review from an actual person. The question to ask yourself is why would they call an audit on something? They just spent three months reviewing to see if you qualify a business owner would need to contact an R&D specialist firm. I would highly recommend using affirm that first month does a free qualification check this ensures that you don't pay a penny until you know, if qualify and for how much second I would recommend using a company that only charges a percentage of what they find that way the Box comes from the main sound if you want to work with my company go to ww.w Big Life Financial birth. It's here. You'll get a free e-book to further expand your knowledge of the credit and set an appointment to speak with an R&D specialist. Again. That is w w Big Life Financial research credits.
