New York State Unemployment, (AP) – still vague threat enterprise Governor Andrew Cuomo to lay off thousands of state employees under the budget he will present on Tuesday, employees and their families shaking. The fear is real. But in Albany, where the fog of politics, it is even difficult to understand how state employees, even number, the reality is more difficult to understand.
Cuomo budget will probably include more threats of massive cuts in the workforce believes that approximately 190,000. The office of state comptroller says the total is greater than 266,000, based on payroll checks. On average, each worker costs the state and 98,500 per year in salaries and benefits, creating a ripe target to help meet a deficit and 10 billion.
But some Democratic lawmakers and financialanlysts who have done many private visits in Albany say that the history, evolution and economic policy could mean a lot less, if any, layoffs when the 2011-12 budget is finalized in the coming months.
It’s hard to believe, after the horror stories relayed by the legislature, a wink and nod obvious – but no confirmation – from Cuomo to closed meetings this month. Lawmakers appeared saying that there could be as many as 15,000 jobs eliminated in all parts of the state.
On Tuesday, Cuomo will present a budget proposal to the Legislature that his colleagues will all breath whispered expensive “Saw” movie.
What part of this presentation will be real, how positioning Cuomo, labor negotiator, will determine if there is real blood on the podium or stage blood.
The big difference between the repeated threats of layoff by former Governor David Paterson – about 900 workers were eventually let go on Dec. 31 – and Cuomo is the contracts the unions of the public “due in March. The unions had refused to reopen their collective bargaining agreements for Paterson to fill the gaps more.
Each year there are hundreds of changes in tax laws – and this year is no different. Taxpayers go through all sorts of life changes throughout the year – getting married or moving, for example – they must keep in mind when filing fees. And this is the first tax preparer tax season must register with the federal Internal Revenue Service.
But New York State, the tax preparers had to register with the state Taxation and Finance Ministry last year. Now, with more than 80 percent of Americans go to a tax preparer to file, the IRS has made every trainer you register, you register for an ID number of tax preparers, test and take classes each year.
And most tax preparation in favor of the new regulations.
“It’s a good program,” said Valarie Kruse, owner of AAA Tax Service of the City of Lockport. “It gives people a sense of security. The IRS is there to protect the taxpayer.”
“It’s a very good thing, good for tax preparers, good for taxpayers,” said Mark Steber, the chief tax officer of Jackson Hewitt.
The best way to prepare for tax season is to organize, Steber said. Using a shoebox or envelope, people should gather all the important tax documents, receipts and return of last year, “said Steber. And find a preparer of record if the applicant wants to use a preparer, he added.
Steber said people should be aware of everything and all life changes, no matter how small. These can be something like a move, or even as simple as taking care of a parent.
“Every year there are a lot of changes to tax, but more common are changes in people’s lives,” said Steber.
Small businesses typically have many tax advantages that homeowners may not know, Steber said. The costs of job search could also help, he added.
Unfortunately, the change of life was the most common of unemployment, Kruse said. The unemployment rate has hovered between 8 and 9 percent on the spot for months.
“I also found there were many job changes, so people come in with a number of W-2s,” said Kruse. “The consistency of employment is not there.”
Towards the end of December action by Congress has resulted in deductions to be reduced. For example, deductions for teachers’ materials and tuition deductions were late, but were renewed for the 2010 tax return.
New York State 3-month rate of unemployment average of 8.3%. This falls below the average of 8.5% required by the federal government for people to claim the six weeks of EUC benefits under Tier 4. If you have claimed all Tier 3 EUC benefits with the week ending August 15, 2010, you can receive six weeks of EUC Tier 4. So if you’re still unemployed, you can move through the extended benefits. If you have not applied all Tier 3 EUC benefits with the week ending August 15, 2010, you cannot receive benefits from level 4. This means you will spend EUC Level 3 directly into the extended benefits.
