LendingTree states that Birmingham, Alabama; Louisville, Kentucky; and Salt Lake City pay an average of $2,600 on real estate taxes, which is the lowest out of the nation’s 50 largest metros. Urban areas, such as New York, San Jose, California, and San Francisco paid an average of $9,400 in real estate taxes, double the average amount of the 50 largest metroes.Kapfidze notes the importance of homeowners to itemize in order to get a deduction based on things like their real estate taxes, or the amount of money they pay in mortgage interest.“While higher refunds issued under the Trump tax bill can help people who are struggling to pay for real estate taxes or mortgage interest costs, there are better ways to manage these kinds of costs,” Kapfidze said. “Ultimately, people who feel as though they are chronically overburdened by high real estate taxes or mortgage interest fees are better off looking at alternative ways of ease this burden, as opposed to solely relying on their federal tax refund. For example, moving to a less expensive area like Birmingham, Alabama, can help alleviate costs associated with owning a home.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Real Estate Taxes by City Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

There are 168 hours in a week, 730 hours in a month, and 8,760 hours in a year. It doesn’t matter whether you’re Jeff Bezos or the CEO of a credit union; everyone has the same amount of time. The difference between successful and unsuccessful leaders lies in how they choose to use that time.According to Cassie Holmes, an associate professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, most people tend to look at time from a ground-level perspective, which means that instead of looking at a broad overview of time, they only think about things in light of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. That’s a problem. When making decisions with this limited view, every activity incurs a short-sighted opportunity cost.For example, performance reviews are coming up, and you have to work on those right now. This means having to set aside that project that would allow you to expand your membership opportunities or delay working on the new loan product that would result in a huge opportunity for your credit union and your members. Or in another instance, spending an evening or weekend catching up on email equals the inability to spend intentional time with your family and friends. There’s always a trade-off.As part of every strategic planning session I’ve lead over the last few years, we help clients build a game plan for successfully executing their strategy by asking “What can hold you back from accomplishing these goals?” Can you guess the number one answer for almost every project? “Task saturation.” Today’s credit union leaders are stretched thin. Overseeing numerous compliance issues while managing day-to-day operations leaves them feeling overwhelmed, ineffective, drowning in busyness. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
“The government is now waging all-out responses after raising the crisis alert to the highest level,” Moon said at a ceremony marking Independence Movement Day, scaled down due to the outbreak.”We will be able to overcome the COVID-19 outbreak and revive our shrunken economy,” he added.Nearly 90 percent of the cases were in Daegu, the centre of the country’s outbreak, and its neighbouring North Gyeongsang province, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement. The country’s death toll remains at 17.The national total is expected to rise further as authorities screen more than 260,000 members of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus, a secretive entity often accused of being a cult that is linked to around half of the country’s cases.

Authorities have urged the public to exercise caution and anyone with a fever or respiratory symptoms to stay home.But officials say they are not considering a citywide quarantine for the city in the manner of the lockdown imposed on the central Chinese city of Wuhan, where the virus first emerged.A surge in confirmed cases has led many events to be cancelled or postponed as the outbreak has hit the world’s 12th-largest economy, including concerts by K-pop superstars BTS and the World Team Table Tennis Championships.Auto giant Hyundai Motor also suspended operations at one of its Ulsan plants after an employee tested positive for the coronavirus.The new school term start has been delayed one week nationwide and three weeks in Daegu, while the US and South Korean militaries have postponed forthcoming joint exercises.Topics : South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Sunday the government was waging “all-out responses” to contain the novel coronavirus as the country reported 376 new cases, taking the total to 3,526.South Korea has the largest national total in the world outside China, after it saw a rapid surge in the number of coronavirus cases in recent days.Scores of events have been cancelled or postponed over the virus, while more than 70 countries raised their travel restrictions against South Korea.

“I’m just sad for the people that were there. I feel like if you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, it can happen anywhere.”Once Muguruza learned of the attack, she called to make certain her family was unharmed.“During the rain delay. I’m like OK, I was listening to music, I checked for news and stuff, and I’m like, ‘Oh,’” Muguruza said. “I checked with my family. Everything is OK, but, you know, it’s just incredible.”Muguruza said she was able to set aside the emotional shock and return to finish her match, deadlocked 2-2 in the third set when the storm struck. She saved three match points before breaking in the 12th game, then led all the way in the tie-breaker.“I’m used to putting so many things aside to be able to compete. That’s my every day, putting things aside and going out there and have two hours of concentration of tennis,” Muguruza said.“I just make sure that people around me are fine. There is not a lot I can do anymore. Just support the people. Be with them. But at the end I’ve got to go play. And after, we can talk again. But I have to kind of block it for two hours.”David Ferrer, who also advanced to the quarter-finals, tweeted after his match: “All my solidarity with the people affected in the attack of Barcelona ..

Police were treating the incident as a terrorist attack.Sixth-ranked Muguruza, who captured the Wimbledon title last month, learned of the incident during a two-hour rain delay in her 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7/3) victory over American Madison Keys.“I couldn’t believe it. I have been so many times to that place, so many times. It’s like a main street with a lot of shops and people,” Muguruza said.“I was very surprised because you always hear what happened in Paris and in London, and you’re, like, ‘Shit.’ But now, I’ve been so many times to this place, it’s like my home. And I feel, like, ‘Shit.’“I’ve been there so many times. So it really shocked me. Really shocked me.
Twitter accounts belonging to Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Apple, among others, were compromised on Wednesday and posted tweets that promote a cryptocurrency scam.Additionally, accounts of former President Barack Obama, Kanye West, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and Mike Bloomberg, also posted similar tweets soliciting donations via Bitcoin.“Everyone is asking me to give back, and now is the time,” Gates’ tweet said. That message promised to double all payments made to a Bitcoin address for 30 minutes after it was posted.A spokesperson for Twitter said the company is looking into the issue. “We can confirm that this tweet was not sent by Bill Gates,” a spokesperson for Gates told CNN Business. “This appears to be part of a larger issue that Twitter is facing. Twitter is aware and working to restore the account.”Meanwhile, Uber later tweeted, “Like many others, our @Uber account was hit by a scammer today. The tweet has been deleted and we’re working directly with @Twitter to figure out what happened.”This is a developing story.
