It could be a longer wait for your tax refund next year

WGRC News - Fri, 12/19/2014 - 1:03pm

It could take longer for you to get your income tax refund next year. The IRS commissioner John Koskinen says budget cuts enacted by congress means fewer agents will be auditing returns, and about half of the people who call the IRS for help won’t reach someone. He says the budget cuts could hurt taxpayer services and add time to when you can get your refund. . Congress cut the IRS budget by $346 million for the budget year that ends in September 2015. The $10.9 billion budget is $1.2 billion less than the agency received in 2010.

Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration ruled Unconstitutional

WGRC News - Wed, 12/17/2014 - 8:32pm

President Obama’s executive action on immigration is unconstitutional says, U.S. District Judge of Pennsylvania Arthur Schwab. The Christian Post says, Schwab made the conclusion yesterday in a 38-page opinion on the criminal case of an undocumented Honduran immigrant, who was charged in federal court with unlawful re-entry after he was arrested earlier this year in Pennsylvania for drunk driving. Schwab wrote, President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional. He said, Obama’s Executive Action on immigration goes beyond prosecutorial discretion because it provides for a systematic and rigid process by which a broad group of individuals will be treated differently than others based upon arbitrary classifications, rather than case-by-case examination.

Lower gas prices are hurting the Fracking Industry

WGRC News - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 1:45pm

Fracking is a modern American success story. The technique for extracting oil from shale has made America the world’s leading oil producer. Lower energy prices have been an early Christmas present for consumers, but they also hurt companies that drill for oil. And with oil prices now below $60 a barrel and likely to go lower, fracking is facing a challenge. Analysts say, Saudi Arabia and OPEC are trying to use the low world oil prices as a weapon to kill off fracking as an industry by making the process too expensive compared to the price of oil. They don’t like the competition from the U.S. They think if they drop the price, they’ll be able to cause enough pain and push some of them out of business, and they’ll be able to raise the price back up.
