"Making Work Pay"
The reduced withholding amounts will be in effect for the remainder of 2009 and 2010. You will not be required to complete new Forms W-4 to take advantage of the reduced federal withholding percentage.
You will likely notice, based on your marital status and number of dependents claimed for bi-weekly payroll, anywhere from $20.00 to $40.00 MORE in your net pay this week (and it will continue for 2009 and 2010). If you wish to NOT have this extra amount as "take home" pay and wish to resume having more taxes paid in to get a larger refund at next year's tax filing (2010), then be sure to let me know and I can provide you with the proper form to complete.
There will be no change to New York State tax withholding, as far as we know now.
I think my boss may be incorrect on that last point - sadly state withholdings will be going up, not down.
Anyway, here is your "tax cut," which is actually a "tax credit."

He's the classic "me" player - egotistical, mouthy, greedy, self-centered, with little regard for his teammates or the well-being of the team.
As a Bills fan, I expect that even T.O. isn't capable of destroying a franchise in one year. From a purely football perspective I think he's going to be a huge addition to our offense, but at what expense? T.O. has to know that his antics won't be tolerated here... if he doesn't he'll soon find out. The thing about T.O. is that he came from small town Alabama and an undistinguished athletics program (Tennessee - Chattanooga). He must have been really eager to shed his humility.

A most interesting development. It is good to see the Red March continues across Latin America, comrades! Possibly the only capitalist nation left south of our border (or, as some say, anywhere in the Western Hemisphere) is now Brazil - they just recently began expanding their offshore drilling, and this is the country with the highest application of biofuel in the world? In any case, this is no bullpoop - yes, Maruicio Funes, former CNN International correspondent and candidate for President of El Salvador is the current leader of the same Communist regime that the Reagan Administration fought back in the '80s, and he considers himself to be "El Salvador's Barack Obama." As the piece points out, he's even co-opted "si se puede." If you're curious, you can check out "Chairman" Funes on Facebook.
2. Barack Obama - Worst Gift Giving President In History?
This ain't political - let's lay out the facts and you can judge for yourself. Prime Minister Gordon Brown is a peculiar man to be sure, but he displayed deep consideration and thought in his array of gifts to the 44th President of the United States upon their first diplomatic meeting.
Please consider the following. The first gift - an ornamental desk-pen holder crafted from the timbers of a 19th century British anti-slaving ship, the HMS Gannet, which was subsequently renamed the HMS President. (That is such an amazing and meaningful gift not just to Barack Obama but to our nation, that I can barely stand it). The second gift - the framed commission for the HMS Resolute, a ship that our own U.S. Navy towed from the Arctic to London for the British. The same boat whose timbers were fashioned into the desk of President Rutherford B. Hayes, a gift from Queen Victoria, which is the desk that currently sits in the Oval Office. The third gift - a first edition of Sir Martin Gilbert's 7-volume biography of Sir Winston Churchill.
President Obama's gift in return? A 25-DVD collection of America's greatest films.
C'mon. Prime Minister Brown could have picked that up from Wal-Mart on the way to Andrews AFB. Barack Obama, what the hell is wrong with you? The British press is aflame with insult, and how could you blame them? This has nothing to do with politics - I have to say, I'm ashamed at that one. God bless the British and their sense of history... I can't think of another nation whose people could conceive of such thoughtful things to present to our President, much of which has to do with our long history together. We're close to the British and as far as diplomacy goes, in their eyes this was the diplomatic version of a glove-slap. So I'll diss the President in British fashion - in my view, Obama "bottled it!"

I've been listening while I work. I don't know why I can recognize Gloria Allred solely from her hairstyle. What controversial legal case in California is this lady NOT a part of?
