U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai testifies before the Senate Finance Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., May 12, 2021. Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUnited States Trade Representative Katherine Tai discussed trade and investment issues with Taiwan minister John Deng on Thursday and agreed to convene a meeting of the countries' Trade And Investment Framework Agreement Council "in coming weeks", Tai's office said in a statement. "Ambassador Tai emphasized the importance of the U.S.-Taiwan trade and investment relationship and explained the Biden-Harris administration's worker-centered trade priorities," USTR said. Taiwan has long angled for a free trade deal with the United States, but trade and investment talks between the two have been stalled since the Obama administration. The outcome could affect trade talks with Washington.

Central News Agency/Pool via REUTERSChina's Defence Ministry on Tuesday denounced a brief weekend visit by three U.S. senators to Chinese-claimed Taiwan on a U.S. military aircraft as a "vile political provocation" that was irresponsible and dangerous. "The U.S. senators visited Taiwan by military plane, using the Taiwan issue to engage in a 'political show', challenging the one-China principle and trying to achieve the so-called goal of 'using Taiwan to control China'", it said. "This was an extremely vile political provocation". The United States must immediately stop any kind of official exchanges or military relations with Taiwan, it added. "If anyone dares to separate Taiwan from China, the Chinese People's Liberation Army will resolutely fight head-on at all costs and resolutely defend the country's unity and territorial integrity".

Al Drago/Pool via REUTERSThree U.S. senators will visit Taiwan on Sunday and will meet President Tsai Ing-wen to discuss security and other issues, Taiwan's government and the de facto U.S. embassy in Taipei said on Saturday, a trip that will likely irritate China. Taiwan has also complained about China trying to block the island from accessing vaccines internationally, which Beijing has denied. In recent months China has increased pressure on democratically-ruled Taiwan as it tries to assert its sovereignty, including regularly flying military aircraft into Taiwan's air defence zone. China routinely denounces visits of foreign officials to Taiwan, calling them an interference in the country's internal affairs.

Can this U.S. city heal racial wounds by busting up its freeway?

Now, New York State wants to replace that elevated stretch of freeway with a street-level boulevard to knit the city's urban grid back together. The plan has stirred visions of renewal in a city where one in three residents lives in poverty. But some residents and public officials say it must provide more safeguards, such as community control over newly cleared land, to ensure that Black residents won't get displaced yet again. Nestled in rolling farmland about 200 miles (322 km) northwest of New York City, the city has lost one-third of its population since its mid-20th Century heyday, when its factories churned out televisions, air conditioners, even automobiles. On a rainy afternoon in April, Rufus and fellow NYCLU staffer Lanessa Owens-Chaplin walked alongside the elevated Interstate 81 freeway in Ward 15.

In March, Congress approved new $1,400 stimulus checks through the American Rescue Plan Act. Those third stimulus payments add to the $1,200 and $600 payments that were approved last year. Most people should receive their $1,400 stimulus checks and "plus-up" payments, if they're eligible, automatically, according to Erica York, economist at the Tax Foundation. In the beginning of this year, for example, there were still an estimated 8 million outstanding stimulus checks from the CARES Act that was passed in March 2020, she said. What's more, you will not owe the IRS a late filing penalty if you are due money back.

To address the needs of this rapidly growing population, AARP encourages its members to carefully consider ways to make their homes places where they can comfortably and safely age in place. Bigger changes can include enlarged doorways to allow for wheelchair access or a walker and adding ramps to eliminate stairs. Dr. Rodney Harrell, the vice president for Family, Home and Community at AARP, says intentional planning to create an ideal space to age in place can be started at any time. It is an extension of the organization’s extensive HomeFit Guide, which is available online. This designation was developed in 2002 by the National Association of Home Builders in collaboration with AARP and other experts.

Jamie Grill | Getty ImagesTax returnsConstantine Johnny | Moment | Getty ImagesThe IRS is using 2020 tax returns (or, if unavailable, 2019 returns) to determine taxpayers' eligibility for the child tax credit and the amount of the advance payments. The advance payments add up to half of a taxpayer's total credit for 2021. The American Rescue Plan raised the maximum credit amount to $3,000 per kid ages 6 to 17, and $3,600 for younger children. Information reported on next year's tax return may differ from current IRS data — and therefore change the total credit amount. The portal must also allow taxpayers to opt out of receiving advance payments of the tax credit.

With the end of tax-filing season swiftly approaching, people who worked in multiple states last year due to Covid may be wondering — where do I owe taxes? Between March 2020 and October 2020, nearly 9 million Americans relocated, according to research from the National Association of Realtors. "You have a general rule the taxpayer owes taxes where they live — their domicile state as it's called — and where they work," said Steber. Remote work throws a wrench in taxesThis year, because so many people relocated and worked remotely due to the pandemic, things might be extra complicated. Because of the pandemic, many states have issued new rules about "nexus" — a term describing a tax relationship between two entities — and remote work.

Ron DeSantis and a panel of scientists apparently trading in Covid-19 misinformation has been pulled from YouTube. The video of DeSantis’ roundtable discussion last month at the state Capitol in Tallahassee was removed on Wednesday because it violated the social media platform’s standards, YouTube spokesperson Elena Hernandez said. “YouTube has clear policies around Covid-19 medical misinformation to support the health and safety of our users,” Hernandez said in a statement. "Good public health policy should include a variety of scientific and technical expertise, and YouTube’s decision to remove this video suppresses productive dialogue of these complex issues." It also has the tenth highest Covid-19 infection rate in the country, according to Becker’s Hospital Review.

YouTube’s Assault on Covid Accountability

To hold elected representatives responsible for decisions they make, Americans need to know what those officials and their advisers are saying. That’s an essential democratic principle, and it’s as true for coronavirus response as any other policy challenge. Last September, YouTube scrubbed a Hoover Institution interview with Scott Atlas, then one of President Trump’s coronavirus advisers. In the hour-and-forty-five minute video, Mr. DeSantis and the four panelists lambaste the U.S. coronavirus response as excessively draconian and ineffective. DeSantis asks one panelist, Harvard biostatistician Martin Kulldorff, whether children need to wear masks, and Mr. Kulldorff says no.

TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan will fight to the end if China attacks, its foreign minister said on Wednesday, adding that the United States saw a danger that this could happen amid mounting Chinese military pressure, including aircraft carrier drills, near the island. Slideshow ( 2 images )Chinese-claimed Taiwan has complained of repeated military activities by Beijing in recent months, with China’s air force making almost daily forays in Taiwan’s air defence identification zone. On Monday, China said an aircraft carrier group was exercising close to the island. “We are willing to defend ourselves without any questions and we will fight the war if we need to fight the war. Taiwan has not said where the Chinese carrier group is currently, or if it will go next to the disputed South China Sea, where a U.S. carrier group is currently operating.

Patrick T. Fallon | AFP | Getty ImagesSmall businesses are realizing they might not have much time to tap the Paycheck Protection Program as they thought. Lawmakers overwhelmingly supported extending the PPP last month, moving the deadline to May 31 from March 31. Those include more funding, letting small businesses get second loans and making the new loan calculation formula retroactive for sole proprietors. In the meantime, businesses that want to take advantage of the program — especially those that haven't gotten any PPP money — should apply as soon as possible. Foster applied for a second PPP loan as soon as she could this year and got about $5,250 in March.

JGI | Getty Images$10,200 unemployment tax breakThe American Rescue Plan waived federal tax on up to $10,200 of unemployment benefits, per person, received in 2020. That's because the tax break technically excludes benefits from a taxpayer's income, thereby reducing the income on which they pay tax. That income reduction may make them eligible for income-dependent tax breaks like the Earned Income Tax Credit, according to the IRS. Amended tax returnFiling an amended return isn't a requirement — but people may be leaving money on the table if they don't, Grzes said.

Taiwan, U.S. to strengthen maritime coordination after China law

The defacto Taiwanese ambassador to the United States, Hsiao Bi-khim, signed the agreement in Washington on Thursday, her office said in a statement. While the United States, like most countries, has no formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan, it is the island’s most important international backer and arms supplier. China passed a law in January that for the first time explicitly allows its coast guard to fire on foreign vessels, causing concern regionally and in Washington. “This unilateral request for the coast guard to use force will cause great tension and pressure on neighbouring countries,” he told reporters. China also has maritime sovereignty disputes with Japan in the East China Sea and with several Southeast Asian countries in the South China Sea.

Depending on your situation, it's possible that you're generating income that the IRS wants to know about. And if you're an ongoing seller, be aware that it could become harder after this year to avoid income-reporting requirements. This means that in early 2023, you could receive a 1099-K for online sales you make in 2022. Regardless of whether you receive a tax form, there are instances when the income you earn from your online sales should be reported to the IRS. A good share of folks on these platforms may not be reporting the income and the IRS isn't getting that information either.
