2014 Tax Deadline News... Personal Income Tax Returns, LLC's, LLP's and Partnership Returns Were Due April 15, 2014 for the 2013 Tax Year

2014 Tax Deadline News... Personal Income Tax Returns, LLC's, LLP's and Partnership Returns Were Due April 15, 2014 for the 2013 Tax Years

Don't Let the Passing of Time Cost You Money!!! Be sure you keep ALL of your tax filings and payments with the IRS current!

Personal Income Tax Returns, LLC's, LLP's and Partnership Returns were Due April 15, 2014

The original Tax Deadline for filing of your 2013 Personal Income Tax Return is April 15, 2014. Therefore all individual tax returns are due by that date. If for any reason you are not able to file your return by the due date both the IRS and state allows you to extend your return for six months. However don't let the extension "fool you." An extension to file is not an extension to pay as both the IRS and states require you to pay your taxes as you go. Individual taxpayers, as well as corporate ones, since World War II are required by tax law, to pay taxes as they make the money during the year. Please keep in mind there is only one extension allowed and that after the six month extension lapses there are no further extensions and the return will be deemed late if your personal return is not filed by October 15, 2014.

Slips, Trips and Falls

Fall prevention is an important topic that should be a priority to all businesses and companies. Unfortunately, only a portion of fall prevention is addressed by some companies. Many people tend to think fall prevention only has to do with safety on ladders or other high places, but these people don’t know that most falls happen at ground level.

Slips, trips and falls cause thousands of injuries every year. These falls are the result of the physical condition of the area and can be caused by inclement weather, poor lighting, obstructions, or slippery surfaces. A company can often be held liable for any injuries that result from these factors.

Due to the fact that a company can be held financially responsible for any injuries that occur on the premises, it’s important to make sure you’re covered. If you own your own business or company, be sure to make your property as safe as possible. Remove or reduce all fall hazards, and complete safety inspections on a regular basis. Taking these preventative measures can help keep your employees and customers safe and injury-free.

Why Christians Work

By Phillip Jensen

It was long ago that the community agreed upon a 40-hour week. The balance of work, sleep and recreation has undergone many changes since then. For some getting work itself has been the problem. For others the only work available is casual. Others have the choice of part-time work while some complain that is all that is available to them—while still others are working longer hours than ever. The increased feminisation of the workplace has been a major shift of the last half of the twentieth century. Increased mobility between jobs and careers has lead to a new way of viewing our education and training.

Industrial relations is often a heated and divisive issue. Government changes to the laws about work relations can cause considerable community and trade union concerns. Governments have even been brought down over these issues. FULL POST
