Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans are breathing a very big sigh of relief, and not because their very slim playoff hopes remain alive for another week.

They finally won again.

Kerry Collins threw for two touchdowns and 237 yards and Chris Johnson ran for a TD and 130 yards as the Titans snapped a six-game skid by beating the Houston Texans 31-17 on Sunday.

With the win and Indianapolis downing Jacksonville 34-24, the Titans (6-8) stayed in the playoff hunt for another week with their first victory since October 24th. They also avoided being swept by the team that replaced them in Houston for only the second time.

New Withholding Details Now Available on IRS.gov

Internal Revenue Service - IRSWashington, D.C. – The Internal Revenue Service today released instructions to help employers implement the 2011 cut in payroll taxes, along with new income-tax withholding tables that employers will use during 2011.

Millions of workers will see their take-home pay rise during 2011 because the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act Of 2010 provides a two percentage point payroll tax cut for employees, reducing their Social Security tax withholding rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent of wages paid. This reduced Social Security withholding will have no effect on the employee’s future Social Security benefits.

The new law also maintains the income-tax rates that have been in effect in recent years. «Read the rest of this article»

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The economic data were mixed, but generally consistent with a continued expansion. Retail sales rose more than expected in November, while figures for September and October were revised higher. Industrial production rose moderately, as a drop in auto production was offset by gains in other manufacturing sectors. Residential construction figures were mixed, but single-family activity improved. Consumer inflation figures remained low.

As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee left the target range for the overnight lending rate unchanged (at 0% to 0.25%), kept it’s conditional commitment to keep short-term rates low for “an extended period,” and did not alter its asset purchase plans ($600 billion by the end of Q211). In its economic assessment, the FOMC noted that the recovery “is continuing,” but “at a rate that has been insufficient to bring down unemployment.” Congress approved the tax cut package. European debt worries continued to simmer. «Read the rest of this article»
