    New York : Organizations that ensure the financial security of vulnerable groups alerted taxpayers to orient themselves on credits such as Entry to Work that can exponentially increase the amount of the refund when they file their tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The “Earned Income Credit” (EITC) It is one of the most mentioned in the tax season since it grants up to $ 6,660 dollars to people who have children and are of low or moderate income. Because the EITC is a refundable tax credit, it can reduce the amount a taxpayer owes to zero or increase the amount of the refund. More than $ 62 billion in EITC Last year, more than 25 million taxpayers received more than $ 62 billion in EITC; while the average amount for the credit was $ 2,461. A family with three or more children could receive up to...
    Experts say it is possible that the U.S. may achieve herd immunity against the coronavirus as early as July. In a video for MedPage Today, Dr Monica Gandhi, of the University of California San Francisco, said the nation will only be able to curb virus spread between vaccination coverage and natural immunity. There are currently 27 million confirmed cases of the virus, suggesting 8.2 percent of the population has been infected. But Makary and Gandhi say they believe that the true figure lies closer to 30 percent of Americans. Most experts say at least 70 people will have to be immunized or infected for the country to see true herd immunity.  Between the number of infections and the 13 percent of Americans who have already received at least one vaccine dose, Gandhi say we could see herd immunity by the summer.

    The federal deficit is up more than 60% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to the same period last year, rising to a record-breaking $572.9 billion amid increased spending and declines in revenues. The Treasury Department's report found that the deficit from the first three months of the budget year was $216.3 billion more than the beginning of the prior year. Outlays for the period ended at $1.38 trillion, representing an 18.3% jump, according to the Associated Press. Revenues, on the other hand, slipped .4% to $803.37 billion. December alone saw a record $143.6 billion deficit. After the coronavirus pandemic slowed economic activity in spring 2020 and the government spent trillions of dollars on economic relief packages, the year ended with a $3.1 trillion deficit. At 14.9% of the country's gross domestic product, debt represented the largest share of GPD since World War II. ...
    A message from hardware maker ASUS regarding pricing on motherboards and graphics cards has the PC gaming community bracing for higher prices in 2021 as exemptions to Donald Trump’s import tariffs on Chinese products expire. In a statement reported Tuesday by WCCFTech, ASUS announced MSRP changes reflecting “increases in cost for components, operating costs, and logistical activities, plus a continuation of import tariffs.” The statement from Juan Jose Guerrero III, a technical product marketing manager for ASUS, first appeared in the company’s Facebook group. It has since been removed. News Brig has reached out to an ASUS representative for additional comment. The Trump administration in 2018 imposed tariffs on billions of dollars of Chinese goods, leading many companies to ask for, and receive, temporary waivers to the import tariffs. Tariffs are not a tax collected from the exporting country or its manufacturers; they are paid by the citizens and the...
    A day late and four deaths after rioters overtook the U.S. Capitol, the Army announced on Thursday the authorization of 6,200 National Guard members from seven states to support law enforcement in the capital. “Yesterday was a horrible and shameful day in our history,” Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said at a press conference, hosted by Washington D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, while praising the mayor’s and Metro Police Department's leadership in regaining control of the Capitol after Capitol Police were overcome by supporters of President Trump who were protesting the election results. McCarthy said the Guard members from Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York will be in place by the weekend. “Obviously, it was a failure, or you would not have had police lines breached,” Bowser said of rioters entering Congress, but she declined to admit that she should have requested additional National Guard support.

              U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) and U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) criticized U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) and U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) “for holding COVID aid hostage for months.” The two U.S. senators from Georgia emailed a joint statement Monday. “After months of Democrats playing politics with Americans’ health and livelihoods by blocking additional relief for our families and small businesses, we finally have a path forward. During a crisis, we need proven leaders who can get things done,” the two senators said. “Together, we are delivering nearly $1 trillion in additional aid to the American people on top of the $3 trillion already disbursed. Over $47 billion has already gone directly to Georgia’s families, farmers, front-line workers, schools, hospitals, and more is on the way.” Perdue and Loeffler said they, among several other things, secured additional funding for the Paycheck Protection...

    The expensive recount effort in Wisconsin may have backfired on Donald Trump’s campaign. The president’s campaign, echoing his unfounded claims of voter fraud and massive irregularities, pushed for a recount in the two largest counties in the swing state. As The Independent reported, that effort has now come to a conclusion, with Joe Biden the apparent beneficiary. As the report noted, the count in Milwaukee County was completed on Friday night and Dane County completed its effort on Sunday. The end result was a net gain of 87 votes for the the Democratic candidate, closing the door on any chance Trump may have had to swing the critical battleground. The report noted that Trump’s campaign spent $3 million to pay for the recounting, as state rules require campaigns seeking a recount to pay for it themselves. Trump has pushed forward with a series of legal challenges aimed at flipping the...

    AMC Entertainment, the country’s largest movie theater chain, said Tuesday that it is looking to raise more cash as the coronavirus pandemic continues to hammer its business. The cinema chain, which plans to sell up to 15 million shares, said in an SEC filing that it expects revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30 to plunge 91 percent to $119 million from $1.32 billion, a year earlier. Shares of AMC fell over 9 percent in early morning trading on the news. AMC, like rival cinema houses, temporarily shut down in mid-March amid the pandemic.

As a result, the struggling chain has scrambled to keep the lights on, recently raising close to $55 million...

    A striking aspect of the 24 percent decline in India’s GDP in the first quarter of 2020-21 compared to the previous year’s first quarter is the decline by 10.3 percent in public administration, defense, and other public services. This is a sector where the GDP is estimated not by the “output” of the sector but by the government expenditure incurred under these heads. The decline in the GDP originating in this sector therefore means a decline in public expenditure. This is surprising for two reasons: first, it shows that government expenditure, instead of being “counter-contractionary” has been “pro-contractionary”; second, during the lockdown caused by the pandemic, one would expect government spending on health care to go up, and thereby raise the overall government expenditure, instead of the fall we are actually observing. When there is a lockdown, and output contracts, it is incumbent on the government to increase its expenditure. The rise in expenditure reduces the...

    (CBS Sacramento) — The nation’s unemployed received some good news last week. Those who qualify for the additional $300 in weekly federal unemployment benefits under the Lost Wages Assistance program (LWA) may receive up to six weeks worth of benefits. (Projections are based on current spending rates in individual states along with Department of Labor and state calculations.) That’s potentially twice as long as the initially announced three weeks. Put another way, it’s up to $1800 in additional payouts rather than the previously promised $900. The program, announced by President Trump in early August, was designed to follow the first round of stimulus, known as the CARES Act. That legislation added $600 in weekly unemployment insurance payments from the federal government to whatever individual states provided. Those payments eased the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. They ran out at the end of July, and Congress remains deadlocked on a...

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday afternoon that up to nine additional nations could join a peace deal with Israel in the near future, including Saudi Arabia. “We have many other countries [that are] going to be joining us and they’re going to be joining us soon,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn. “We’ll have, I think, I mean I think seven, or eight, or nine. We’re going to have a lot of other countries joining us, including the big ones.” “It’s not something that my critics thought was possible and now they say, ‘wow, that was a good idea,'” Trump continued. “I will say, it’s gotten rave reviews.” About a minute later, Trump added: “I spoke with the king of Saudi Arabia, at the right time I do think they will come in, yes, I do. This is a very big and very historic moment.” President @realDonaldTrump's leadership...

County supervisors unanimously approved an ordinance, on Tuesday, that allows city and county officials to cite people who don’t wear masks, or don’t keep a distance of at least 6 feet.

    (CNN)US states and localities have used less than 25% of the funds allocated by Congress to address coronavirus relief efforts, according to a new report from the Treasury Department.The report underscores an issue that bedeviled state and local officials in the wake of the passage of the $2.2 trillion emergency economic relief package -- that strict federal rules designed to ensure the funds are spent on Covid-related expenses has kept much of the money bottled up in local coffers, even as these places face huge budget shortfalls.It also comes in the middle of an intense debate over distributing more funds to states. Democrats, in a $3 trillion House-passed relief measure, would send an additional $1 trillion to states and localities. Senate Republicans, in their proposal introduced this week, moved to add flexibility to the current federal rules, but added no new funds.Congress agreed in March to disburse $150 billion in...
    The Trump administration is escalating the federal response to violent protests in Portland, Oregon. The U.S. Marshals Service has begun an additional 100 deputy U.S. Marshals to the city, where rioters are clashing with federal officers on a nightly basis while targeting federal property, the Washington Post reports. U.S. Customs and Border Protection may also send an additional 50 agents into the area, but a decision on that idea has not been finalized. Portland has been a hot-spot of protests for more than 60 consecutive days, beginning after the Memorial Day death of George Floyd. Increased vandalism and violence in recent weeks has concerned federal authorities that the present number of federal agents and local law enforcement officers may not be able to contain the increased aggression of rioters. Federal officers have been hurt by "mortar style" fireworks launched at them and stunned by lasers flashed...

    By RACHEL LA CORTE, Associated Press OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Employment Security Department Commissioner Suzi LeVine said Thursday that just under 35,000 people are waiting for resolution of their claims for unemployment benefits, and that questions around their claims should be resolved by the end of the month.
