Q: Finance, Personal Finance
Do you have a good saving tip that you are willing to share?
A: If you still use your landline and you don't want to give it up, you might want to consider going on the pay as you dial plan. Most phone lines don't even promote it anymore because they lose money on it. Because most people use cell phones they don't use their land lines as much any longer. I have saved $10 a month doing this. It's not much but it helps.


Q: Finance, Tax Planning
What are the tax benefits of the new stimulus package?
A: The IRS issued revised federal withholding tables and Advanced Earned Income Tax Credit tables that

will lower the amount of federal income tax withholding, and businesses are to utilize them no later than

April 1, 2009.

The credit is 6.2% of earned income, up to $400 per person per year for singles, and up to $800 for

married couples. The credit phases out for higher wage earners.

50% bonus first-year depreciation for assets purchased in the current year.

Businesses under $15 million in gross receipts for 2006-2008 can carry back 2008 losses for 5 tax years.

Asset expensing continues its $250K ceiling through 2009.

Work opportunity credits have been expanded to include both veterans and disconnected

youths (16 to 25) who are unemployed.
