    That assumes that having a death tax at all is appropriate. I believe in Canada they have no death tax but do tax capital gains at death. That seem to be a lot more fair system. People pay a tax...

    The Law & Legislation Scorecard that has been posted shows 9 proposals from David Greifinger. At this point, 3 have been passed by the committee, 1 has been tabled until next year, and 5 are still...

    Also, my 35th Annual Meeting. I started here in Reno in 1981.

    It is true David G is suspended although the betting is it will be short lived. Unfortunately, it keeps him from discussing this week in the L&L Committee the latest reforms he proposed. Worst case,...

    Just before 2000, the top marginal rates also went up while both the first George Bush and Clinton were President.

    I think it likely to be more of an impact on football in D2 and D3 than D1. Even if the pool of HS players diminishes, there will be enough to fill the spots in D1. And football is not the revenue...

    The average tax rate is the tax you pay divided by your entire AGI. It is not your tax bracket which is your marginal tax bracket - the tax you pay on your last dollar earned.

    I was in 5th grade in a Catholic school. A sister came in and told our teacher that JFK had been shot. A short time later, we were sent home early. We did not find out that JFK had died until we got...

    He is 61 years old and is certainly vested in a Nike retirement plan. He probably does not need to coach again. But he may want to.
