Do I Need to File a Tax Return This Year?

 

Internal Revenue Service - IRSWashington, D.C. – You are required to file a federal income tax return if your income is above a certain level, which varies depending on your filing status, age and the type of income you receive.

However, the Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers that some people should file even if they aren’t required to because they may get a refund if they had taxes withheld or they may qualify for refundable credits.

Tennessee House Convenes Second Session of 107th General Assembly

 

Redistricting plan passes following intense negotiations
 
The Seal of the State of TennesseeNashville, TN – The Tennessee General Assembly kicked off the second year of the 107th General Assembly this week and passed a constitutionally required redistricting plan to adhere to new census numbers, said Rep. Joe Pitts.
 
“I voted against this legislation because the voting public deserved the opportunity to see the redistricting plan that will determine their House District in the Tennessee House of Representatives for the next ten years.  Taking a few extra days to publicize the new district lines would have greatly improved the process and plan, and would have enabled me to vote for the plan. The lack of public input on issues of importance that only come around every ten years should always be a great concern.” said Rep. Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville). “My focus now will be on creating jobs here in Tennessee and improving the public education system for our students and teachers.”

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

The economic calendar was thin. Retail sales disappointed in December, rising just 0.1%. However, sales rose 0.3% if one excludes the 1.6% decline in gasoline sales (which reflected lower gasoline prices). In addition, November sales were revised slightly higher. Auto dealership sales advanced 1.5% last month. Sales of building materials rose 1.6%. Core retail sales, which exclude autos, building materials, and gasoline, slipped 0.2%, but still advanced at a somewhat fast pace in 4Q11. Jobless claims rose sharply, but it’s not unusually to see large week-to-week swings this time of year (due to the difficulties in seasonal adjustment).

Expectations for Europe varied, with some concern about the pace of reforms in Greece and rumors of possible downgrades of European sovereign debt. A three-day weekend may have limited the amount of risk-taking in the U.S., weakening share prices. «Read the rest of this article»

Martha White®Nashville, TN – Over the past few years, bread puddings have emerged as the decadent darling of trendy chefs and cooks.

“These rich new versions of the classic bread pudding are a far cry from its humble beginnings,” said Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “Bread pudding was the creation of frugal cooks looking for ways to use stale bread and make the most of their eggs, milk and sugar. Bread puddings have been made for hundreds of years all over the world, so a Southern version made with biscuits was bound to happen.”
