Susan Tompor and Janna Herron Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Jan 25, 2019 Sitting down to do your taxes in the next few weeks — or talking with your tax preparer — will involve tackling the most sweeping changes in the federal income tax rules in more than 30 years. Tax filers need to keep in mind that more than 600 changes took place under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which was passed by Congress in late 2017. All those changes even drove some industry experts to raise concerns early on about possible delays to the typical late January start of the tax season — and that was long before the federal government shutdown hit on Dec. 22. Even so, the Internal Revenue Service promises to kick off tax season as of Jan. 28, the earliest date you can file your returns. Will things end up being simpler? Maybe, if you’re able to tap into a substantially expanded standard deduction and you no longer must string together all sorts of receipts … [Read more...] about When to file your taxes and what new rules to expect

EVERETT, Pa. – It was the day of the birthday party, and the husband and wife had invited everyone they knew. They’d spent the morning buying food – a sheet cake, jumbo hot dogs, ground beef, soda, chips – and were now standing around a picnic table covered with it all, along a long lake under a cloudless sky, hoping at least some people would show up to eat it. Today was the first time both sides of their family were supposed to come together, something that hadn’t happened at their wedding four months before. On that day, not a single member of the husband’s family had attended – not his brothers, who’d called him a fool for marrying like this, and not his parents, who’d told him the relationship would only get him into trouble. Just about the only people who’d gone that day, and were here so far on this day, had been the people involved in the wedding itself. There was Maria Vargas, a shy and brooding girl who looked older … [Read more...] about She was 16 when she married a 25-year-old. And their situation is surprisingly prevalent.
