    The Internal Revenue Service on Friday said that it is delaying by one year a new tax reporting requirement targeting Americans who made more than $600 online through third-party payment apps like Venmo or PayPal. "The IRS and Treasury heard a number of concerns regarding the timeline of implementation of these changes under the American Rescue Plan," said Doug O'Donnell, the acting IRS commissioner. "To help smooth the transition and ensure clarity for taxpayers, tax professionals and industry, the IRS will delay implementation of the 1099-K changes." This is a developing story.

  • Order with GE (General Electric) paid for and told it will arrive 6-12 weeks. It's been 5 months. No end in sight. Should I file with the Attorney General?

    I made an order with GE August 5. Paid for a combo microwave/oven. Mine is 12 years old and the microwave stopped working. I had the tech out and he told me he can repair it but when the stove goes they do not make parts for it anymore. Suggested I might just get a new one. My kitchen has it such that my old combo microwave/oven is set in a cabinet that has no room for expansion on either side. Hence I am forced to buy the only combo microwave/oven that fits, and that is GE's product. So I...

    Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is among a group of 59 influential conservative power brokers who signed an open letter pressing Republican leaders in the House and Senate to delay their internal conference leadership elections. “The Republican Party needs leaders who will confidently and skillfully present a persuasive coherent vision of who we are, what we stand for, and what we will do. Many current elections are still undecided. There should be no rushed leadership elections,” the letter says.

Photo: Fox NewsBut don’t try to take matters into your own hands, moms. According to the New York Times, pediatricians “strongly advise” against trying to make baby formula at home. Some are rationing food or driving to stores hours away only to find empty shelves. Others are heading online to look up homemade baby formula recipes that use anything from powdered goat’s milk to raw cow’s milk. But...

    Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for companies with 100 or more employees officially went into effect on Monday and companies are scrambling to figure out how to force employees to comply. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is sitting on its hands, refusing to rule, and compelling employers to enforce Biden’s totalitarian mandate.National Law Review:On December 15, 2021 a three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled that the lower Louisiana federal court only had the authority to block the mandate in the 14 states that had actually filed suit. The following day, a federal court in Texas...

    Novavax on Wednesday issued a statement reinforcing its position that its vaccine will be ready for global use this year, following a POLITICO report on Tuesday that it had fundamental manufacturing issues that would delay its ability to contribute to the global fight against Covid-19. The company said it plans to file “within the next couple weeks” in Europe, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and to file for emergency use in the U.S. by the end of 2021. Novavax did not address the assertions of two people with direct knowledge of the company’s processes that it has...

    New York Times ^ | 05/11/2021 | Katie Thomas
    Novavax, one of the first players in the race to vaccinate the world against Covid, delivered disheartening news on Monday, saying that its highly protective vaccine would not be authorized in the United States or Britain until at least July, and that it would not reach peak production until the end of the year. The delays, announced during an earnings call with investors, are the latest setback for the little-known Maryland company, which was granted up to $1.6 billion from the U.S. federal government last year and whose product has shown robust results in clinical trials. Despite these wins, the...

    A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump rejected what he called a “creative” lawsuit on Thursday. It was a suit that Georgia’s assistant attorney general warned would cause the Peach State’s largest disenfranchisement since the Jim Crow era.“To halt the certification at literally the 11th hour would breed confusion and disenfranchisement that I find have no basis in fact and law,” U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg declared at the end of a roughly two-and-a-half hour hearing.The celebrity attorney making the breathtaking request was L. Lin Wood, Jr., who also represented former U.S. Congressman Gary Condit and the alleged victim...

    1. A motion to delay certification of GA vote based on a flawed recount was denied this evening by Atlanta Judge Steven D. Grimberg. The oral ruling was unclear but he may have overreached to dismiss my claim that election was unlawful due to @GaSecofState consent agreement. 2. The recount issue was separate from unlawful election issue. Sounded like Court thinks a GA voter has NO standing to challenge unlawful federal election. Lawyer for Sec. Of State suggested only state AG could do so. What? AG represents @GaSecofState. Makes no sense. 3. GA voters have rights. It is OUR right...

    On Friday, President Donald Trump pointed to the chaotic primary election in New York's 12th Congressional District as a portent of what the nation might expect should Democrats succeed in their scheme to vastly expand mail-in voting for the general election in November. Though the primary was held on June 23, a clear winner is not known due to a large number of absentee ballots that were disqualified by the state's Board of Elections.

    Goldman Sachs is warning that the presidential election could see delayed results, and is therefore recommending that clients hedge their market bets through December in anticipation of heightened volatility through November. “Given the several-week delay in finalizing the results of the 2000 presidential election ... the elevated volumes of mail-in ballots used in recent primary elections, and potential for increased mail in ballots this November, we see heightened risk that election-related volatility could extend beyond Election Day,” Kostin said in a note to clients Tuesday night. Kostin said options market traders seem to believe the next president might not be...

    Gov. Roy Cooper backed down Tuesday from a promise to announce a school reopening plan by July 1. Instead of the much-anticipated decision, his office sent a statement at 8:30 p.m. saying his Wednesday news conference "will not include an announcement on how statewide K-12 public schools will open this coming school year." The delay comes less than six weeks before schools are scheduled to open Aug. 17 for 1.5 million North Carolina students. Local school districts were poised to roll out plans this week. "Our basic plans are ready to go," Iredell-Statesville Schools board Chair Martin Page said Tuesday....

    Constitution Center ^ | 04/10/2020 | by Scott Bomboy
    As America battles the COVID-19 virus, speculation has started that a prolonged public health crisis could delay or even postpone this year’s presidential election. So how would the Constitution deal with such an unusual situation?In general, a combination of state or congressional actions could delay elections but not postpone the selection of a president and vice president. The only hard deadline spelled out in the Constitution is the end of a president’s term and a vice president’s term on January 20 of the year following a general election. (That same deadline applies regardless of term limits imposed on the president...

    Clinical trials are key to effective treatments, even if it means LONG DELAYS IN THE USE OF the MAJORITY OF PATIENTS WHO NEED THEM, said Dr. William Schaffner, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “There are any number of drugs in the laboratory that seem to have some kind of anti-viral effect,” he said. “That’s very intriguing. But there’s a long distance between what works in the lab and what works in humans.” But some experts are pushing back against the hype, warning that none of these...

    President Donald Trump’s longtime adviser Roger Stone will be sentenced Thursday despite a request by the defense attorneys for a delay, a federal judge overseeing his case ruled Tuesday.“I think that delaying this sentence would not be a prudent thing to do under all of the circumstances,” said Judge Amy Berman Jackson in a Tuesday telephone conference with lawyers. Jackson’s decision comes after all four prosecutors in Stone’s case resigned over the Justice Department reversing their recommended prison sentence of 87 to 108 months for the GOP operative. Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday condemning both the former prosecutors and Judge...

    The Harris County Toll Road Authority plans to take a three-week pause in construction on the new Houston Ship Channel Bridge along the Sam Houston Tollway so engineers can agree on a solution to a possible design flaw found nearly 20 months into the project. The $1 billion bridge — the costliest infrastructure project in the county’s history — was designed by the Dallas office of FIGG Bridge Group. The company, based in Florida, came under scrutiny when its Tallahassee office designed a pedestrian bridge that collapsed in February 2018 at Florida International University, killing six. FIGG and its consultants...

    Just my two cents, but I think the impeachment delay tactic was necessary to support the premise of the case - Motive, not about anything else like Pens, or fear. As we've been told by the mainstream media "narrative", Trumps actions were not about trying to get truth about the illegal doings in Ukraine and its role in the Russia hoax, but about digging up dirt on Trump's rival. Since there has been no Democrat candidate selected, two things need to happen prior to the formal impeachment hearings to begin. One, Joe Biden needs to be named the DNC candidate,...
