Tax Facts, Quotes and Humor

Tax Facts: In 2018, US federal, state and local governments collected a combined total of $5.1 trillion in taxes or more precisely $5,086,700,000,000. This amounts to $15,535 for every man, woman and child in the US, or $39,869 for each household, or 24.8% of the US economy. On the other hand in 2018, federal, state and local governments spent $6.74 trillion leaving a deficit of $1.64 trillion………Source: GAO and JustFacts.

Tax Quotes: “The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government” – Barry Goldwater

Tax Humor: “Why won’t a shark eat a tax collector?…..professional courtesy” – Author Unknown
and in the spirit of the season: “Taxes date all the way back to year one, when baby Jesus was visited by two wise men and an IRS agent who demanded half of the family’s frankincense” – Jimmy Kimmel

Tax Subject for the Day: Ten Major Trends in IRS Audits

Most taxpayers envision Internal Revenue Service audits as intrusive investigations resulting in criminal sentences. Today, nothing can be further from the truth. The IRS’s auditing power has been greatly diminished in the past decade as IRS audit resources have been reduced by 28% and the audit rate has dropped from 0.9% in 2010 to 0.5% in 2018. In fact, the number of IRS audits in 2018 (991,168) dropped almost in half compared to 2010 (1.735 million).

(1) Most audits are done by mail – 2018 audits by mail: 75%
(2) The main issue in audits is the EITC
(3) An alarming amount of people do not respond to an audit: 66% non-response rate
(4) The most common IRS challenge to a return is not an audit, but the dreaded CP2000 notice
(5) The IRS knows who to audit as it results in an adjustment 89% of the time
(6) Field audits are rare, expensive and saved for complex taxpayer situations such as businesses and
tax avoidance schemes, Average amount owed in a field audit: $85,400
(7) Want your business to escape an audit? Be an S-Corp or Partnership – audit rate 0.22%
(8) Audits on the wealthy are still popular, but has dropped to 1 in 31 earning $1 million or more
(9) Audits have dropped, but penalties are rising – In 2018, 606,121 individual taxpayers were assessed
an “accuracy penalty” compared to 58,366 in 2005
(10) Tax evasion prosecutions are low. In 2018, there were only 636 indictments for tax crimes – Source: taxprotoday.com

In no way am I recommending that you play the audit roulette game. Always file accurately.

Next time, the subject I’ll discuss will be: What the heck is an SFR

Inca – black Lab looking for a new home

Inca is a gentle and quiet 10-year old black Labrador Retriever and weighs about 60 pounds. He had some tough times on the street but regardless, he has kept his kindheartedness and adapts well into an apartment or a house. He walks calmly on a loose leash, waits for his food to be served, is not destructive and sits by the door when he needs to go outside. Inca gets along well with adults, children and medium size dogs but appears to be frightened by large dogs. When not out for walks, Inca sleeps, quietly waits for his meals, snuggles, enjoys regular brushing, plays with his rope toys and yes, he enjoys special treats. To arrange a time to meet Inca, please call the number shown below. Unable to upload photos – please call for photos to be emailed. Many thanks.

It’s a Wonderful Life
a film by Frank Capra

* Doors open at 6 PM.
Info & reservations: 099 806 8071

About
“It’s A Wonderful Life,’ is a timeless (and surprisingly dark) American holiday classic. This film is a powerful fantasy about the difference one person can make in other people’s lives. But it’s also about everyday working folks growing up, falling in love, raising families and trying to help their neighbors. This isn’t a holiday movie about Santa Claus and toys; it’s about good Yankee characters learning to appreciate life’s simpler blessings.

December 23rd, from 7 to 10 PM, Free, Mariscal Lamar y Luis Pauta, Cuenca.

We will be open for breakfast (Tuesday to Friday 8:30 AM – 1 PM) and our chef will be more than happy to give you tips and recipes to best use your organic produce. From el campo to la mesa. Please spread the word as we want to help our farmers, to invite them weekly, to promote a healthier living style and without your help and support it would be impossible.

Free & Fun Language Exchange on holiday–resumes January 6th

The Free & Fun Language Exchange is taking a sabbatical due to the holiday season.

We will resume our bi-lingual conversations on Monday, January 6th.

Please put that date on your calendar and come join an enthusiastic group of native Spanish and English speakers as we converse in each other’s language in an encouraging and supportive environment.

All levels of ability are welcome, so don’t worry–even if you don’t speak a word of the language you want to learn, you will be helped by those that do.

The topics of conversation are based on the arts, movies, culture, Cuenca, or anything else that you and your fellow table mates want to discuss. The important thing is that you will be able to practice a language while meeting interesting people from around the world.

We meet in a comfortable community center where Café de Cholas offers a selection of food and beverages at a reasonable cost. So come hungry and thirsty for not only what the café has to offer, but for knowledge of language and new tidbits of information about your world.

No need to confirm your attendance; just show up and enjoy (and learn!).

Every Monday (except the holiday season) from 6 to 8 PM at Munay Sayani Casa Comunitaria. The Café de Cholas is inside the community center. Look for their sign on the exterior wall of the building.

Attention interested golfers, trip to Montecristi Golf Club

Hola fellow golfers,

Missing a round of golf in Cuenca? I have a solution. I have been to Montecristi Golf Club near Manta for several visits and can attest to it being a fun, challenging course with nice accommodations and good restaurants on site.

I am soliciting interest for a golf trip to Montecristi Golf Club in mid to late January. At this point I am open to a 3-4 day trip depending on the schedules of those interested. I am hoping to make this a regular monthly trip if there is a positive response.

Please contact Ron Shea at sailorsheas3@gmail.com or a text to 096 795 2482.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Ron

Update – motorcycle wreck

Hello All,

A wonderful woman who works tirelessly to help the needy in Cuenca continues to need your help. Unfortunately, she and her son were in a motorcycle wreck and both were seriously injured. She has a broken pelvis and will be bed-ridden for 5 – 6 months. Her son will be in bed for 1 – 2 months. They have lost two incomes.

You can help in any of the following ways:

* PayPal contributions to domearevalo1@gmail.com will cover additional expenses of diapers and other needs not covered by IESS
* jigsaw puzzles and crossword puzzles (Spanish) – she literally has nothing to do
* if anyone has a TV they aren’t using….?

If you have items to donate, please contact via email: infocuencasoupkitchen@gmail.com

Thank you all so much for considering helping this kind woman who has done so much to help so many.

Cuenca.

And then of course there’s those 38 almost all across 5-star Google patient reviews that one considering dental work in Cuenca should always want to check out prior to hiring their Dentist: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Find+Health+in+Ecuador+Dental+Clinic/@-2.9023124,-78.9974635,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x7ecd0686bd7976!8m2!3d-2.9093641!4d-78.9937672

Recommendation for Barbecue Palace, BBQ-Indian

The food is truly amazing. Best Indian Food in Cuenca and many places in the US and even India. The Cauliflower Manchurian is crisp yet tender with delicious spices. I had the Chicken Tikka which we warmed up over the BBQ. With onions and peppers and those delectable Indian spices, it was a sheer pleasure to eat. So tender and juicy. I’m not a big lamb eater, but the Lamb Curry was also just wonderful and so tender. I highly highly recommend this restaurant. Service was great. Open everyday. Can’t wait to go back

Recommendation for Lina Ulloa, attorney

It has been proven to me over and over again that Lina Ulloa is one of the most honest and knowledgeable attorneys in Cuenca. We had her draw up our end of life documents. After they went missing, Lina helped us locate these important papers. She was also remarkable in clearing up a mess made by another unethical attorney in Cuenca. She is always informed and up to date in regard to the ever so quickly changing laws and legal requirements. Plus, she is eager to be sure our lives here are legally safe and all documents are executed property. Lina is an exceptional attorney.
