President's Day: Implementing AMERICA FIRST Policies While celebrating President's Day, I am extremely thankful for those individuals in difficult leadership positions who desire to better our nation. America needs a leader who loves the U.S.A. and will act on the best interests of THE PEOPLE, one who will get this country back on track. Decisions made, may not be some of the population's popular choice but you can't please all the people all of the time. As Americans living in a constitutional republic, we can agree that past outcomes have affected how we live today and why we remain free to make our own decisions. To all President's in the past who have left an indelible, positive mark, I simply say THANK YOU, for your contributions to the United States of America! Happy President's D...

 Imagine what it used to be.This is the back view of a building in Judsonia.  Looking at it and thinking back, you can almost picture a nicely curved back entry and 3 nicely curved windows. The tornado was in 1952 but the building is still standing.  The back seems to be in better shape than the front!

Live in Mount Laurel, NJ? Here is a quick story about IRS Tax LienWhat Happens When You Don't Pay Your Taxes to the IRSImagine you have a piggy bank where you keep all your treasures. But one day, you forgot to share some of your treasures with a friend, like you promised. That friend is like the IRS, which is a group that collects money for the government. When you don't share your treasures (or pay your taxes), the IRS says, "Okay, until you share like you promised, I'm going to put a sticker on your piggy bank. This sticker tells everyone that I get to take some of your treasures first."This sticker is called a tax lien. It means if you try to buy something big, like a bike, with the treasures from your piggy bank, the IRS gets to take some of those treasures first. It also means tha...

These penalties are designed to encourage compliance and timely filing and payment of taxes.Late Filing Penalty: If you don't file your tax return by the due date (including extensions), the IRS can charge a late filing penalty. This penalty is usually 5% of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month that a tax return is late, up to a maximum of 25%. Late Payment Penalty: If you don’t pay the taxes you owe by the due date, the IRS charges a late payment penalty. The penalty is generally 0.5% of your unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month after the ...
