Oakland Tax Preparation Specialists, Liberty Tax Service, Reviews Tax Changes for 2011 Filings


Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2012

Liberty Tax Service, Oakland’s tax preparation specialist reviews 2011 expiring and filing tax measures. Liberty Tax offers this review for some of the more significant tax measures to keep in mind now and for future tax planning.

Some of the tax measures in effect through the Tax Relief Act of 2010 continued through 2011. Be aware of tax deductions that are expiring, such as the Making Work Pay Credit, Malkeet Singh of Liberty Tax Service said.

For tax measures expiring in 2011, taxpayers paying the AMT, who are eligible for tax credits, can still claim the credits to offset their AMT bill. These include credits for child and dependent care expenses, elderly or disabled, education and mortgage interest. For 2011, the AMT exemption amounts are $ 48,450 for unmarried individuals and $ 74,450 for a married couple filing jointly.

Through 2011, taxpayers who itemize their deductions and live in a state without a state income tax may deduct their state sales tax or their state income tax, whichever is more advantageous.

Qualifying higher education expenses, such as tuition and fees paid for an individual, a spouse, or a dependent are again deductible as an adjustment on Form 1040. The allowable amount is up to $ 4,000. Also, through 2011, eligible educators who have spent their own money for qualified classroom supplies can deduct up to $ 250 as an adjustment on Form 1040, regardless of whether they are able to itemize deductions. Any amount exceeding $ 250 may be claimed as an itemized deduction.

Mortgage insurance premiums are deductible as interest through Dec. 31, 2011. Some home improvements made this year through Dec. 31, 2011, to a primary existing home qualify for a deduction of up to $ 500. These include insulation, metal and asphalt roofs, non-solar water heaters, and windows and doors. The credit is reduced by any residential energy credit taken after 2005.

For small business tax breaks in 2011, small businesses can expense up to $ 500,000 of the first $ 2 million of business expenditures considered section 179 expenses. New businesses can deduct up to $ 10,000 in startup expenses on their first tax return in 2011.

The Patient Protection Act increases the additional tax on non-qualified distributions from health savings accounts (HSAs) from 10 percent to 20 percent and from Archer MSAs from 15 percent to 20 percent, effective after tax year Dec. 31, 2010.

For tax measures expiring in 2012, taxpayers who itemize their deductions can deduct the full amount of their itemized deductions, regardless of their adjusted gross income through 2012. Taxpayers can also deduct the full amount for exemptions, with no income restrictions or phase-outs through 2012.

The American Opportunity Credit is available again in 2011 and 2012 for taxpayers claiming higher education costs, including required course materials. The credit will allow the taxpayer to claim up to $ 2,500 of the cost of college tuition and related expenses.

For 2012, small businesses can expense up to $ 125,000 of the first $ 500,000 of business expenditures considered section 179 expenses.

Homeowners experiencing short sales and foreclosures will get a break for debt-forgiveness tax consequences. Instead of treating cancellation of debt as taxable income on the foreclosure of a principle home, no taxes will be levied on discharges of indebtedness of up to $ 2 million dollars for married taxpayers filing jointly and up to $ 1 million dollars for a married taxpayer filing a separate return through tax year 2012.

The maximum individual capital gain tax rate of 15 percent remains in effect for 2011 and 2012.

This pre-conditioning process works aggressively on heavily soiled conditions of grease, soil, and food which ensures soil removal from deep inside the carpet. The pre-spray process increases the power and efficiency of the cleaning solutions helping restore carpets, upholstery and rugs to their original color in high-traffic areas.

The Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method used by the Hayward, Ca. carpet cleaning company Speedy Steamers, is a method used for extraction and for steam cleaning of carpets. This method is much better than carpet shampooing. The Hot Water Extraction process forces a hot water based cleaning solution into the carpet under high pressure, then sucks it back out of the carpet along with the dirt. This is the only cleaning method classified as “deep cleaning”. All the others are considered “light surface cleaning” because they cannot remove soil deep in the pile.

Carpeting is a major investment in any home, and regular cleanings are necessary to keep it looking new. Just as the clothes we wear need regular washing to keep them fresh and hygienic, carpets require periodic cleaning. Accumulated soil and grit are major causes of reduced carpet life, and enable destructive and health harmful mites and bacteria to work unchecked. Cleaning costs are minimal when compared to the cost of replacing carpets and furnishing, so regular cleaning makes economic sense too.

San Francisco Family Law Specialists of Heath Newton Counselors at Law Answer Five FAQs About Alimony in California


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

The San Francisco divorce attorneys of Heath Newton LLP have recently discussed some of the most commonly asked questions regarding alimony cases in California on its family law blog at http://www.heathnewton.com/blog/.

Question 1: How is alimony calculated in California?

Answer: Typically during the initial stages of the divorce process in California, the most common formula is: 40% of the higher earning spouses income minus 50% of the lower earning spouses income equals the spousal support amount.

As the divorce course of action progresses, many other factors are taken into consideration including standards of living, duration of the marriage, earning potential on both sides and more.

Question 2: How long does alimony last in California?

Answer: Duration of spousal support is determined on a number of factors, mainly length of the marriage. If a marriage lasts for 10 years or more, it is considered a long-term marriage and spousal support is usually set for a fixed period of time, with a conditional termination date or indefinitely.

A marriage lasting less than 10 years is considered a short term marriage and the duration of spousal support typically lasts about half of the the marriage length. For example, an eight year marriage would garner 4 years of spousal support.

Question 3: Can California spousal support be modified?

Answer: Yes. Unless there was an agreement established barring modifications in the divorce proceedings, as life situations for either party changes, requests can certainly be made and fulfilled.

For example, if the payee of spousal support has a loss of income, a case can be made to reduce the amount of spousal support received by the other party.

Question 4: Does Alimony End if My Spouse Gets Remarried or Cohabitates?

Answer: In most cases, marital settlement agreements or court orders mandate that alimony responsibility ends upon death of either party or the remarriage of the receiving spouse.

Question 5: Can Alimony Be Paid in a Lump Sum, Instead of Monthly?

Yes. It is quite common that both parties want to end things with a clean break instead of having to keep up with monthly payments and add more stress to their day to day lives. If both parties come to an agreement on this, a lump sum is an easy and fair way to go.

To learn how California community property and marital law apply to your individual situation or if you want to learn more about prenuptial agreements, we invite you to consult with one of our qualified family law attorneys. Email info(at)heathnewton(dot)com or call (415) 398-1290. We look forward to hearing from you and, again, congratulations on your pending marriage we wish you, and the person you love, a happy future.

Garage Cabinet Manufacturer Trains New Garage Organization Specialists


South Beloit, Ill. (PRWEB) February 12, 2013

It was one of the largest training classes to date for garage storage system manufacturer, RedLine Garagegear (http://www.RedLineGaragegear.com). Nine individuals representing six established businesses from both the United States and Canada were present to learn all they could about some of the companys standard operating procedures on January 21-22, 2013. Some of the things discussed during those two days were: the design software RedLine uses; how to place an order; and how shipping will work.

We work really hard for those two days to ensure that the new agents are ready to start designing and selling our products right away when they return home, said RedLine Garagegear National Director of Sales and Research Bill Garrity. We spend a lot of time working in the software the agents will use to create 3D designs. The comprehensive design software encompasses all visual details of the garage environment.

The robust design software the manufacturer uses to create 3D garage cabinet layouts for customers to view and approve is widely considered the best in the industry. The agents are able to add windows, overhead doors, electrical outlets, and a host of other items to fully recreate the customer’s garage on a computer screen. RedLine Garagegear also currently boasts over 500 cabinet choices including a few specialty cabinets (i.e. garage closets, corner cabinets, lockers, etc.) that new agents must become acclimated with.

Its really important that the agents are familiar with the cabinet options because most homeowners come to them not really knowing what their options are, added Bill. In many instances the customer is counting on the professional to make suggestions and steer them in the right direction when it comes to designing a custom closet or garage storage system.

The newly trained agents will be the exclusive carrier of RedLine Garagegear garage cabinets in their area. Some of them will also add the line of closets manufactured by RedLine Closet Systems to their offerings. Components from the closet line can be used to create nearly anything from custom entertainment centers and bookshelves to storage systems for closets, pantries, laundry rooms, or mud rooms.

The dealers are established in six locations throughout North America where RedLine does not currently have an agent. The manufacturer sets up protected territories for each dealer giving the business an opportunity to be successful without unnecessary competition. RedLine Garagegears agent network has expanded to over 60 dealers and sells its products direct to consumers in areas where no dealer is available.

Starting from the East Coast the new agents are: Lance Lamborghini in Sagamore, MA; Working Spaces in Trent Wood, NC; Garage Makeover, LLC in Harrisburg, PA; Space Concepts in Rochester, MN; RedLine Garagegear of Arkansas in Little Rock, AR; and finally, our neighbors to the North will have Leisure Life Spaces in St. Agatha, Ontario.

Were really excited to expand our agent network, said RedLine Garagegear President Troy Greenberg. The local showroom is really where folks are able to see our products up close. Thats where we are best able to differentiate ourselves from the other options out there.

RedLine Garagegear and RedLine Closet Systems are the child companies of Greenberg Casework Company Inc. The parent company has been building custom cabinetry and casework since 1985. Over the course of nearly three decades Greenberg Casework Company Inc. has manufactured everything from store fixtures to reception desks. Another child company, GCC Coatings (http://www.PowderCoatMDF.com), is the wood powder coating arm for the manufacturer. When not applying powder on wood for its sister companies, GCC Coatings offers its powder coated wood services to other manufacturers.

RedLine Garagegear is expecting continued growth ahead in both the agent network and overall sales. With each added dealer the garage cabinet maker gets closer to its goal of organizing every garage in America. Business owners interested in jumping into the expanding garage organization or home storage system market would be wise to look into the dealer opportunity offered by RedLine.
