Miscellaneous tariff bill keeps Nebraska manufacturers competitive

One of the bright stars, though, remains our ag economy, driven by expanded trade and finding new markets abroad for Nebraska products. 

As an advocate of increased international trade and a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, I am committed to reducing taxes and tariffs to increase trade and American competitiveness in a global economy.

In the past, Congress acted to close our borders, believing doing so would protect US manufacturing and producers. 

Multinational manufacturing and international supply chains have evolved, though, and we now know free and fair trade is economically advantageous for America and Nebraska.

To keep pace with our international competition, Congress developed the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) to temporarily suspend previously levied import taxes on necessary manufacturing inputs which are not sold or available in the US  Suspending these tariffs reduces the cost of US manufactured goods, making them more affordable and attractive to domestic and international consumers.

The reduced cost of production benefits consumers both here and abroad, protecting jobs at home and reducing our trade deficit.  The largest category of goods imported into the United States is not consumer goods, but capital goods used to create value-added finished products. 

For example, Nebraska manufacturers import raw materials not found in the US, and then export their manufactured products to consumers around the world, benefiting our local economy.

The MTB process also fosters more competition between domestic producers because prohibitive tariffs can prevent smaller start-up businesses from gaining a foothold in an industry.

The MTB supports an estimated 90,000 jobs, increases US production by $4.6 billion and expands US GDP by $3.5 billion.  Congress must renew the MTB by the end of this year to expand opportunities for US manufacturers to benefit from suspended duties on imports. 

Failure to act only benefits foreign manufacturers who do not face the same punitive tariffs.

In the past, the duty suspension process has been conducted with little transparency, raising concerns the bill could be open to earmarks or limited tariff benefits to a single entity. 

However, I have supported an updated process developed in the Ways and Means Committee to increase transparency and ensure the MTB is in accordance with House Rules and the earmark moratorium.

The MTB provisions now are fully vetted by the public, the independent International Trade Commission and the Executive Branch before being included in the final bill. 

The additional steps ensure the proposed tariff suspension would not be limited to a few entities, but instead available to anyone wishing to import the product.

Despite the unprecedented transparency of this process, some continue to call for Congress to cede this authority to the Executive Branch.  Providing more unchecked authority to an already bloated Executive Branch, however, would be misguided. 

The MTB process promotes good government, allowing Congress to carry out its constitutional responsibility to “lay and collect taxes and duties,” under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, while providing an open process for individuals to submit public comments.

Given the weak state of our economy, Congress should use any and all means to reduce burdens imposed by government to encourage private sector growth and jobs. 

Congress can accomplish this goal in part by passing an MTB before the end of the year to give certainty to manufacturers and promote American exports and competitiveness.

Pleasant Hill may borrow money to pay off part of pension debt

PLEASANT HILL — Pleasant Hill is considering whether to borrow money to pay off $4.1 million of its pension debt, a move city leaders say could save more than $700,000 because of lower interest rates.

The debt in question is part of the citys share of unfunded liability in the California Public Employees Retirement System, or CalPERS, as of 2005. That was the year CalPERS merged all retirement plans with fewer than 100 employees into risk pools, including Pleasant Hills public safety and miscellaneous employees plans. The share, known as the side fund, is the difference between the amount set aside to pay future pensions and the actual benefits employees had earned at the time.

Cities have been paying off their side funds at an annual interest rate of 7.75 percent. On June 30, CalPERS reduced the rate to 7.5 percent.

Just as homeowners have taken advantage of low interest rates to refinance their mortgages,

the City Council is considering taking out a loan, in the form of a bond, to pay off its public safety side fund. Other cities, including Walnut Creek and Martinez, have already paid off all or part of their side fund obligations.

Pleasant Hill currently owes $4.1 million for the public safety side fund and $2.8 million for the miscellaneous employees side fund. Payments for the funds are included as part of the employers CalPERS contribution rate. If nothing is done, the public safety side fund is scheduled to

LSK May Go to Court to Block Elections Law

The contentious Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill is not out of the woods yet with lawyers yesterday hinting at the possibility of seeking the intervention of the constitutional court to stop its implementation.

All the options are still open, Law Society of Kenya vice chairperson Lillian Omondi said after presenting a petition to Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Eugene Wamalwa.

Wamalwa pledged to get back to LSK after two weeks. These are matters that need consultations as you are aware that the bill is one of the most contentious pieces of legislation that the Tenth Parliament have dealt with, said Wamalwa. We would wish that all the laws that we enact fall within the confines of the constitution, Wamalwa added.

President Kibaki is set to sign the Bill into law this week after Parliament debated and agreed with his earlier objections regarding academic requirements for MPs and party hopping. Omondi accused the AG Githu Muigai and the Parliamentary Committee for Justice and Legal affairs of ignoring LSKs recommendations on tabling the Bill.

LSK is concerned about the changes to the Vetting of Judges and Magistrates act 2011 which transfers the exercise of vetting magistrates to the Judicial Service Commission. The JSC, which is made up of interested parties, will obviously not be in a position to honestly and fairly carry out these activities in a transparent manner, Omondi said.

Are Investment Management Fees Tax Deductible?

I often get asked, “Are investment management fees tax deductible?” The answer is not a simple “yes” or “no.” Like many tax questions, the answer is “It depends.”

Investment management fees are a tax-deductible expense. They can be listed on Schedule A under the section “Job Expenses and Certain Miscellaneous Deductions.” Line 23 includes investment expenses. These expenses get added into unreimbursed employee expenses, tax preparation fees, safe deposit boxes and other qualifying expenses.

Unreimbursed employee expenses can include professional dues, required uniforms, subscriptions to professional journals, safety equipment, tools and supplies. They may also include the business use of part of your home and certain educational expenses.

All of these miscellaneous deductions are totaled. You only receive a tax deduction for the amount that exceeds 2% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) from line 38 of your Form 1040. If your cumulative expenses are under 2% of AGI, you will not get a deduction.

For most of our working clients, their miscellaneous deductions fall far short of the 2% AGI threshold. But when clients retire, they are much more likely to qualify.

If your expenses are close, you gain from lumping most of your expenses every other year. For example, if your AGI is $100,000 and your miscellaneous expenses average $2,500 a year, in most years you will only get a $500 deduction. But if you can pay the same bills in January and December of one year, you might be able to have $5,000 in deductions one year and zero the next. That means you could have a $3,000 deduction every other year. In next year’s 28% tax bracket, this would save you $560 more in taxes.

Even if you can’t deduct investment management fees directly, you can still pay a portion of the fee with pretax dollars. Investment management fees can be deducted directly from the accounts for which they were charged.

Many fee-only advisors charge a percentage of assets under management. But they can also prorate those fees back to the accounts they are managing. For traditional IRA accounts, the fee is not considered a withdrawal and therefore is not a taxable account. The fee is considered an investment expense. Thus this fee is being paid with pretax dollars. And the cost is discounted to clients by their marginal tax rate.

I’ve seen advisors take their entire management fee from IRA accounts. I don’t think that is warranted by the letter or the spirit of the tax code. Any fee taken from an IRA account should be justified as a fee for the management of a pretax account. You can’t simply start paying your bills from an IRA as a nontaxable withdrawal.

Similarly, any management fees paid directly from an IRA account should not be listed as a miscellaneous expense on Schedule A trying to qualify for an additional tax deduction. Only expenses paid from a taxable account should be listed as a miscellaneous expense.

There is no advantage in trying to pay the entire fee from a taxable account in an attempt to boost your deductions. If you pay $2,500 in management fees, it is better to pay $1,000 from an IRA with pretax dollars than to pay for it separately to get a $500 tax deduction. Any amount paid from an IRA is equivalent to getting that same amount as a tax deduction.

The REAL Most Expensive Business Schools In America

Jack Duval on flickr

This is part of our comprehensive ranking of the Worlds Best Business Schools.

Business school costs a lot of money. Period.

But when youre factoring in the cost of business school, its not the tuition alonewhich costs an average of $44,066 per year along with feesthat you have to consider.

You also have to think about everything from the cost of health insurance to books, a computer, and other supplies. Then there are the hidden fees that you probably dont factor in, like loan fees, transportation, business attire, and networking costs (taking people out to lunch, attending conferences, and more).

Add in the cost of living (which can be quite high in a city like New York), and youve got yourself a lot of debt.

We looked at each schools total cost estimate for one year of business schoolmost of which assume that students are living a very modest lifestyleand then added in some extra costs that the schools seem to have forgotten to include, like loan fees, computers, and more. We didnt even include extras like study abroad costswhich are popular add-ons in business schoolor miscellaneous fees like club dues.

We found that the cost of tuition pales in comparison to the total cost of these MBA programsin fact the true cost of a MBA is often double the cost of tuition.
