It’s cracked,” he said.However, Cllr O’Brien believes a “radical rethink” is now needed on the future of the airport.“As long as I’m looking across the Shannon, I’m hearing stories of Shannon Airport’s impending demise. We hear plenty of grandstanding and mindless waffle from well paid TDs talking a lot and saying nothing about how to save Shannon Airport,” the Pallaskenry native told the Limerick Post after Tuesday’s meeting.“We need a left-field approach. In this proud Republic, we have to pick up the phone to the ‘perfidious Albion’ and plead with the Royal Air Force (RAF) to protect our national air space as Russian military aircrafts deliberately encroach on our sovereign territory.“Meanwhile, American service men still pass through Shannon under great secrecy. It’s high time to admit reality, the reality that we need a radical approach. If that means leasing Shannon to the United States Air Force, than let’s, at least, have the conversation,” Cllr O’Brien said.Speaking in County Hall this Tuesday, Cllr Kevin Sheahan also called for the 40 members of Limerick City and County Council to come together and show their support for Shannon Airport in its hour of need.”While Aer Lingus abandons it and moves all its transatlantic flights across the water, we need a plan for the future of Shannon Airport before more damage is done,” Cllr Sheahan declared.

IRS Asking SSI And VA Beneficiaries For Critical Information By Tuesday

first_imgPhoto: U.S. Secret ServiceWASHINGTON – As the IRS continues to disburse Economic Impact Payments to Americans, the agency is asking those who receive Supplemental Security Income or Veterans Affairs benefits for information about child dependents by Tuesday.In March, Congress passed a stimulus package in response to the coronavirus crisis. It included $1,200 payments to qualifying individuals and $2,400 to qualifying couples, plus an additional $500 for qualifying children. The IRS is asking SSI and VA beneficiaries to use their Non-Filer Tool to tell them about any qualifying children they have.“They are getting benefits from any service that they did or they’re getting benefits based on income,” explained Steven Elwell, the chief investment officer for Level Financial Advisors. “They generally don’t end up filing a tax return, so the government may not be aware that they have a qualifying child.”This only applies to SSI and VA beneficiaries who have a qualifying child, and did not file a federal tax return in 2018 or 2019. Those who do not share this information with the IRS by Tuesday will have to wait until they can file a 2020 tax return to receive the extra $500 per qualifying child.

Short-term, small-dollar rule comments now due Oct. 7

first_imgThe Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has extended the comment deadline for its payday and small-dollar loan proposal to Oct. 7. CUNA has also moved back its deadline for accepting comments from credit union stakeholders; comments can now be sent to CUNA through Sept. 19.The CFPB issued the proposal in June, and CUNA has received feedback from credit unions about concerns with new regulatory and compliance burdens for federally and state-chartered credit unions. The added requirements, as well as proposed changes to the NCUA’s Payday Alternative Loan (PAL) program,eliminate needed flexibility, credit unions believe.The proposal’s overly broad scope sweeps in products and services offered by credit unions that are dissimilar to payday or small-dollar loans, including auto refinance loans. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
