With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Borrowers in thirteen states who have student debt canceled under the Biden administration’s plan may still be taxed hundreds of dollars next year on their forgiven loans.
President Joe Biden announced major reforms to student debt last week, including how borrowers making less than $125,000 a year (or up to $250,000 as a family) may have up to $20,000 in loans canceled for Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 forgiven if they did not receive a Pell Grant.
Thirteen states, including New York and Virginia, treat forgiven debt as income, which means it is subject to state taxes. This means borrowers who have their student loans forgiven may end up owing hundreds of dollars, according to an analysis published Thursday by the Tax Foundation , a nonprofit policy organization.
The Tax Foundation’s Vice President of State Projects Jared Walczak said that the maximum likely tax liability would double for those who have $20,000 in debt forgiven. For two states — New York and Wisconsin — Walczak’s analysis did not include the rare case in which the maximum tax amount would change for someone who may qualify for loan forgiveness based on 2020 earnings only to enter the top-income bracket this year. State Maximum tax if $10,000 in debt is discharged Maximum tax if $20,000 in debt is discharged Hawaii $1,100 $2,000 According to the White House , more than 60% of borrowers are Pell Grant recipients, which means they will have to pay the higher tax rate.
The federal government normally treats the discharge of indebtedness as taxable income, but under last year’s American Rescue Plan Act, forgiven student loans will not count as federal taxable income until 2025.
Walczak noted that his analysis “should never be construed as tax advice,” as states have yet to issue direct guidance on how to treat […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
