ObamaCare and Nonqualified Deferred Compensation – A New Article from the American Benefit Corporation

Rutland, VT (PRWEB) July 23, 2012

American Benefit Corporation’s Jim Herlihy has just released a new article discussing nonqualified deferred compensation in a second Obama administration.

“Income taxes are going up. Executives do have the option, however, to reduce their taxes by deferring income to an employer-sponsored nonqualified deferred compensation plan.” The proposed tax increases include:

1. The previous top income tax rates of 36% and 39.6% will be restored.

2. Capital gains rates will increase from 15% to 20% in 2012 and 23.8% in 2013 for joint filers with income over $ 250,000.

3. In 2013, all or part of the net investment income for individuals earning over $ 250,000 will have an additional 3.8% “Medicare contribution tax”. Therefore, the maximum rate on dividends will be 43.4% (39.6% + 3.8%) versus the current rate of 15%.

4. In addition, many state income taxes, tied to the federal tax rate, will increase automatically. While other states, feeling considerable fiscal pressure, have already increased their tax rate or are currently giving it consideration. All of these tax increases, depending on the state of residence, will put many high earners in a marginal tax bracket in excess of 50%.

The table below summarizes the proposed changes – Please read the entire article here.

Ziegler Closes $ 59.32 Million Renaissance Charter School, Inc. Financing

(PRWEB) November 30, 2012

Ziegler, a specialty investment banking firm, is pleased to announce the successful closing of a $ 59,320,000 Series 2012 Bond issue for Renaissance Charter School, Inc. (Renaissance). This 2012 financing is the third for the borrower which includes a Series 2011 $ 89,235,000 issue and a Series 2010 $ 68,200,000 issue.

Renaissance) is a Florida 501(c)(3) that holds charters for 20 operating charter schools that enrolled over 14,000 students in fall 2012. This includes six schools that opened in fall 2012, including the four schools included in the Series 2012 bond financing. All schools are managed by Charter Schools USA (CSUSA), an Education Management Organization based in Ft. Lauderdale.

The current 2012 financing will fund acquisition and refinancing of four charter school facilities, including one in Tallahassee, two in the Orlando metropolitan area, and one in West Palm Beach. Two of the facilities were purpose built for the schools, with two others being existing facilities that were completely retrofitted for use by the schools. All of the facilities are completed and occupied. All four of the schools opened in fall 2012, with each meeting its enrollment goals and maintaining a waitlist.

Ziegler structured a $ 59,320,000 fixed-rate financing with tax-exempt bonds and a taxable “tail” to cover a portion of the cost of issuance as well as some project costs that did not qualify for tax-exempt financing. The Series 2012 Bonds were issued on a stand-alone basis, with no cross-collateralization or cross-default with any of the prior bond issuances for Renaissance Charter Schools, Inc. Despite the strong opening day enrollment of each of the schools involved, the Bonds were not rated due to the start-up nature of the four schools.

This issue brings the total new issuance volume for CSUSA managed schools to over $ 375,000,000. Although CSUSA is not a borrower on these issues, investors are familiar with the CSUSA name. Ongoing investor outreach efforts by Ziegler’s investment banking and capital markets teams proved valuable in maintaining market capacity for the CSUSA name, and played a key role in driving demand for the Series 2012 issue. Ziegler was able to leverage these outreach efforts and favorable market conditions to provide solid execution for the client.

Michael Braun, Director at Ziegler, commented, “Renaissance and Charter Schools USA have proven they are at the forefront of the Charter School movement in Florida. Ziegler is proud to have again partnered with these organizations to help provide an alternative education option to the residents of Florida.”

With more than 100 years of experience, Ziegler is a recognized leader in the educational sector throughout the U.S. That tradition continues today with its dedicated services to the charter school market nationally. Ziegler is ranked as the number one underwriter (in par value) for charter schools in 2011 according to the Electronic Municipal Market Access database (EMMA). Ziegler provides creative, tailored financial solutions for any type of charter school. Ziegler is one of the few financial services firms in the country that has a dedicated team of charter school finance professionals.

Question by scribblesinguam: Can you help us filing my 05 and 06 federal taxes?
My husband is active duty Air Force and we live in Guam which is a U.S territory. We owned a house that we rented in 05 until the renters trashed it and moved out then we sold it in 06. We also have to file injured spouse every year. As we are short of cash, and useing a tax broker costs about twice as much here as it does in the states my husband has just been ignoring the situation. I’ve heard there is help out there but I don’t know where. Can anybody help?

Best answer:

Answer by justme
Go t the IRS website and follow their help links.
Deal directly with them and you will be surprised.
You may find being honest and upfront may get you some help with the penalties.
It’s possible there my be an office in the Guam area for you to visit also.
They’re not monsters, lol.

ExxonMobil: High Earnings, Low Taxes, No Ethics (g1a2d0029c1)

Image by watchingfrogsboil
Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 29: Communication 1
15 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0029c1)

Exxon Mobil Corporation is the the world’s largest publicly traded
international oil and gas company. It is a direct descendant of John D.
Rockefeller’s Standard Oil monopoly and – along with BP, Chevron, Royal
Dutch Shell, and Total S.A. – one of the five global oil and gas

"Over the past two years [2009-2010], ExxonMobil reported .91 billion in
pretax U.S. profits. But it enjoyed so many tax subsidies that its federal
income tax bill was only million – a tax rate of only 0.4 percent."


"Even when Exxon Mobil had a record profit of billion in 2008 due to
record oil prices it had only a 31 percent effective tax rate. That’s 13
percent lower than the maximum 35 percent despite being Exxon Mobil’s fifth
year as the top corporate earner in Fortune 500’s annual listing. The
company paid NO TAXES AT ALL to the U.S. federal government in 2009 on its
domestic profits of nearly .6 billion. It appears that they avoided the
tax man that year by legally funneling their profits through wholly owned
subsidiaries in countries like the Cayman Islands, and reinvesting their
earnings overseas… More striking still is the discrepancy between Exxon
Mobil’s rates and those of most American breadwinners. The company’s
effective rate of 17.6 percent is nearly 16 percent below the average
individual federal tax rate, which according to the Congressional Budget
Office was 20.4 percent as of 2007."


It is not by accident that one of the world’s largest and most profitable
corporations gets to keep so much of its earnings. In 2010 alone, Exxon
Mobil spent .45 million keeping an army of 50 mostly ‘revolving-door’
lobbyists marching up and down the halls of Congress maximizing its federal
income tax loopholes while minimizing all those pesky environmental
protection and anti-trust regulations:


This of course leaves them with plenty of cash for PR propaganda campaigns
aimed at whitewashing their corporate image to not only wipe away unpleasant
memories of the Exxon Valdez oil spill but also distract attention from
inconvenient truths like their #2 ranking among the Toxic 100 Air Polluters
in the U.S.:


That disclosure of course tags Exxon Mobil as a key contributor to the
larger "Inconvenient Truth" of Global Warming, and the response of their
spinmeisters has been to flood our corporate-controlled media with
authoritative-sounding denials that such a thing even exists. And while
Wikipedia entries are often incomplete, inaccurate or subjectively skewed,
in this case the supporting references that follow indicate they got it

"A recent analysis by Carbon Brief from 2011 concluded that 9 out of 10
climate scientists who claim that climate change is not happening have ties
to ExxonMobil. The results showed that out of the 938 papers cited by
climate sceptics, 186 of them were written by only ten men, and foremost
among them was Dr Craig D. Idso, who personally authored 67 of them. Idso
is the president of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global
Change, an ExxonMobil funded think tank. The second most prolific was Dr
Patrick Michaels, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, who receives
roughly 40% of his funding from the oil industry."

* "Two days after [this report] was published, [Philip] Cooney resigned his
position as chief of staff for the White House Council on Environmental
Quality and got a job at ExxonMobil. However, his resignation was planned
months before the memo was leaked and he had already accepted the position
at ExxonMobil."



I am not just a Consumer. I am a Citizen.

I will no longer be labeled Left or Right, Liberal or Conservative,
Demopublican or Republocrat.

I will no longer follow Puppets labeled Left or Right, Liberal or
Conservative, Demopublican or Republocrat.

I am the People. And I am coming for the Puppetmasters.

I am part of the 99 Percent. And I demand the following:

1. End the Fed.

2. Reverse Citizens United.

3. Repeal PATRIOT Act.

4. Expose 9/11 Truth.

5. End Profit Wars.

6. Refund Taxpayer Trillions.

7. Imprison the Kleptocrats.

8. Single Term Limits.

Or, if these demands are not addressed promptly:

1. Regime Change.

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution
inevitable." – John F. Kennedy

No talking heads on Comcast/GE’s NBC/CNBC/MSNBC speak for us. No talking
heads on Murdoch’s Faux News speak for us. No talking heads at the
Kleptocracy’s Compliant News Network (CNN) speak for us (no matter how dull,
deliberate or subtle their delivery). No talking heads in the lamestream
media speak for us, period. And neither do ANY of the 537
bought-and-paid-for Kleptocracy puppets in Washington DC who will soon be
joining our legions of unemployed!



"Democrat", "Republican",
The parties of the system;
Puppets both, for sale their votes,
No character or wisdom.

"Liberal", "Conservative",
For change or status quo?
Pick either one, the change is none,
All charlatans and whores.

Far "Left" we place the Anarchists,
Libertarians claim far "Right";
Yet both decry the government:
False continuum brought to light.

For oil, "We" bomb their mud huts,
Strip them bare, then offer "Aid";
And fake their retribution as
Pretext – a false flag raised.

Unarmed hundred thousands killed
By weapons of "Defense",
While rights are lost for "Freedom" sake –
On profit, all depends.

With stroke of pen, the "Patriot" Act,
And patriots’ gifts are taken;
Then "Citizens United" leaves
Our citizens forsaken.

We protest loss of liberties,
Put "World Wide Web" to use;
Cloudmark Authority censors us
For "messaging abuse".

They label us to finger-point,
With labels, "They" deride us;
Their labels keep us all at bay,
For with labels, "They" divide us.
