Glenwood developers ask funding aid

Springfield uses money from the room tax to organize the Christmas and Veteran’s Day parades, spring clean-up and other community festivals. It contributes some of the money to the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and Springfield Museum. It has in the past awarded small grants to community organizations for events and other projects that draw visitors.

Springfield expects to receive a little more than $1 million this year in room tax money and has about $280,000 in reserves.

The city staff is proposing to exhaust those reserves to make the debt payments until the hotel opens and then use the room tax revenue from the hotel to meet the obligation in the future years. It projects that the hotel will generate nearly $2.3 million in room taxes during the 10-year period.

Assistant City Manager Jeff Towery said the city expects that it can make the debt payments and eventually have leftover money to resume providing grants for community projects, which it has stopped doing, from the room tax revenue by itself.

Tax break applies to some military veterans but not all

Legislative Bill 987 offers a limited tax break for some retired veterans.

Who's eligible?

Any military retiree who is within two years of the date they retired. The bill takes effect on Jan. 1, 2015, so that rules out anyone who retired before Jan. 1, 2013. Going forward, once a veteran retires, they will have two years to choose which tax break they will take.

How will it work?

Eligible veterans can choose one of two tax breaks.

Immediately take an income tax break that lasts seven consecutive years.
Taxable portion of military pension is reduced by 40 percent.

Wait until age 67 to take the tax break. Taxable portion of military pension is reduced by 15 percent for life.

Is this unusual?

State Tax Commissioner Kim Conroy said the options make the tax break unique in state tax law. The Revenue Department will install special software, costing an estimated $121,000, to ensure that a veteran takes

Does the bible not make any sense simply because...?

one does not understand it?
Calculus doesn't make sense to me, but I would be a fool to proclaim 'Calculus is a load!'
Calculus can be proven as the bible can be proven...

I did misunderstand it! I'm glad I came back it to see that I was wrong. I hope you will accept my sincere apology as I actually agree with you. Sorry brother! I should learn to read and listen more as I ask nonbelievers to do the same.

Fight the Credit Battle

“A lot of people know it’s very difficult to get a mortgage and they’re not even trying,” said Alan Rosenbaum, CEO of GuardHill Financial, a New York-based mortgage broker. Mortal combat calls for great fighters and in the case of war, great generals and courageous soldiers. Yet there is another type of combat which, if caught up in it, can be equally devastating to one’s soul unless we really fortify our defenses and enlist the necessary troops for help. And one of the ironies in this type of battle is that we tend to blame ourselves for the conflict. So the call goes out for legendary generals Patton, Halsey, Eisenhower, MacArthur and on the enemies side, the famed German Panzer leader, Rommel....

Market Recap

Current interest rates remain at historic lows but markets are still clearing, which means affordability remains historically high. 0 and other government programs to help stimulate demand, plus a rebounding housing market, demand for mortgage loans will likely increase throughout the summer. The busier the market becomes, the more demand that occurs, the easier (and more profitable) it becomes for lenders to ration supply by price. The current market presents historic opportunities for buyers looking to purchase or homeowners looking to refinance. It’s worth noting that the laws of supply and demand work in the mortgage market too....
