Checking charges highest at credit unions, Moebs finds

first_imgCredit unions are earning more monthly service charge revenue per member checking account than banks and thrifts are, according to a new study from financial institutions analytics company Moebs Services.Members pay $12.90 per month on average in service charges on checking accounts at credit unions, compared to $8.95 a month at banks and $3.52 per month at thrifts. The overall average was $9.06, according to Moebs Services. The data included account maintenance fees, minimum balance fees, overdrafts, ATM charges and other regular service fees; it did not include debit card swipe fees.“In the long run, those financial institutions who have good control of their expenses in checking could be the real winners,” Moebs Services economist and CEO Michael Moebs said. “And, the credit unions might be the last ones standing.”However, the study data suggested that checking accounts still aren’t money-making endeavors for most financial institutions.

Tax deductions not allowed for PPP loans, reiterates IRS

first_imgThis is placeholder text continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr This post is currently collecting data…center_img The IRS last week published a revenue procedure providing a safe harbor for taxpayers to deduct eligible 2020 expenses from this year’s taxes under certain circumstances. The agency reiterated that taxpayers who received a paycheck protection program (PPP) loan cannot deduct otherwise tax-deductible expenses if the payment of the expense results in forgiveness of a covered PPP loan.The new procedure notice allows for a deduction in the 2020 tax year for eligible 2020 expenses if the taxpayer expected the loan to be forgiven and is then denied in whole or in part, or does not apply for loan forgiveness.However, PPP loan recipients cannot claim a deduction for any otherwise deductible expense if the payment of the expense results in forgiveness because the income is excluded from the gross income of the borrower under the CARES Act. This is true, even if a borrower paid otherwise eligible expenses in 2020 but does not receive loan forgiveness by the end of 2020.The IRS in May released the notice clarifying the non-deductibility of PPP-covered expenses. It referenced a section of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) that prevents double tax benefits. As forgiveness of PPP loans is excluded from the taxpayer’s gross income, the IRC disallows any otherwise allowable deduction of expenses that are forgiven to prevent the double tax benefit of the borrower.last_img read more

Boys play with trucks, girls play with dolls: new study finds gender is biological

first_imgLifeSite News 14 February 2018Family First Comment: You mean boys and girls are different?!?! Heck! According to a new study, differences between boys and girls are biological and not fluid, as transgender theory claims.Research revealed in the Infant and Child Development Journal concluded that gender preferences in children are not so much the result of their environment and upbringing as they are intrinsic within the child.Sixteen studies composed of 787 boys and 813 girls were documented. Researchers found that consistently “boys played with male-typed toys more than girls did, and girls played with female-typed toys more than boys did.”This finding won’t surprise most parents, but it defies prevailing transgender theories that say gender differences are simply a “social construct.”The same innate gender preferences were observed in a variety of contexts. “No significant effect of presence of an adult, study context, geographical location of the study, publication date, child’s age, or the inclusion of gender-neutral toys” made a difference, the data showed.The scientists concluded that the data from these studies indicated “gender differences” have a “likelihood (of) biological origin.” In other words, before you were born you were a boy or a girl, and that’s not subject to change.“The consistency in finding sex differences in children’s preferences for toys typed to their own gender indicates the strength of this phenomenon and the likelihood that has a biological origin,” the study says.Just as what one sees in an ink blot or instinctively associates with a suggested word can indicate one’s internal psychology, so a child’s free, self-directed choice of toy can indicate his or her innate psychology. Researchers say such choices “appear to be the product of both innate and social forces.”The study also found male gender differences increased with age. “Older boys played more with male-typed toys … than did younger boys,” but “the same pattern was not found in girls.” Researchers speculated that this observation may be because of increasing social pressure on girls to break from innate stereotypes.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/new-study-shows-gender-is-biological-unchangeable?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com&utm_campaign=e0199ff936-ProFamily_2_15_2018&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_12387f0e3e-e0199ff936-402922169&mc_cid=e0199ff936&mc_eid=8c4ab97e14Keep up with family issues in NZ.
