World Bank Head Pushes Carbon Tax Policies

This is the best way: a revenue neutral carbon fee. Studies in the U.S. show this lowers emissions faster than regs, adds to GDP, job growth and health. See http://citizensclimatelobby.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/REMI-carbon-tax-report-62141.pdf

Yet, in th U.S. it is lobbyists that call the tune, not common sense or compassion.

Puerto Rico Finally Approves Oil Tax Hike

The Governor hasn't signed the bill yet. I don't think he'll veto the bill - he doesn't have the political capital to do so. I also don't see a special session next week either. He'll probably sign it on a Friday afternoon in the hopes that that news get buried over the weekend. After he signs it, he'll likely push for amendments recommended by the GDB early in the next session after they've worked out some of the comprehensive tax reform. If tax reform makes progress, Luis Raul Torres in the house and Eduardo Bhatia in the Senate might support the amendments. He needs the amendments and needs their support. The way the bill is currently structured, there is a cap of 8.5% on the coupon rate and a limit on the discount of 93 cents on the dollar for a yield of about 9.15%. That's less than what General Obligation bonds are trading for now which would make these bonds (which have less guarantees that GOs) not likely to sell.

British Small Businesses Seek Digital VAT Concessions

Right across the EU there is a VAT threshold on distance selling over the internet, which was created specifically to reduce the administrative burden and encourage businesses to start trading across Europe. The threshold is set by individual countries and can vary from €35,000 right up to €100,000 in France or Germany. In the UK it is set at £70,000 but not one country has a zero threshold.

Why are digital downloads being singled out with a zero threshold? They are effectively placing an entire sector at a competitive disadvantage based on having chosen the most efficient method of delivery.

New Zealand Revenue Minister Reviews Tax System

The Briefing for the Incoming Minister of Revenue (known as a "BIM") is not a speech or comments by the Minister, as you report.

It is rather, prepared by officials before each election to be giving to the newly elected government once the Ministerial portfolios are allocated.

Wyden Calls for IRS Action On 'Mega IRAs'

I agree with the need for simplification. No member of Congress would be able to recite the eligibility of all forms of retirement savings.
As to the Mega IRAs if a few individuals are either lucky or smart then good for them. If you are worried about people gaming the system then simply limit allowed investments to publicly traded stock and debt once an individuals IRA has a net worth of $xx. On the other hand why worry about it? Lots of bigger problems out there.

States Lose Patience Over US Internet Sales Tax

The argument that "brick and mortar stores" are suffering is complete hogwash. ANY "brick and mortar store" can as easily set up a website and compete on the same level playing ground as "internet only" sites. In fact I know of many "brick and mortar" businesses that make MORE money online and shipping from their store than they do in sales in-store. The proposed law is just another shameful attempt to corral more tax dollars for the government.

Democrats Abroad Warn On FATCA Effect For American Expats

I'd voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 and again in 2012. It was a big mistake and I now live with deep regret. Being married to a non-American for 25 years, I've been his dependent since. I was happy giving up my career to raise a family with his support. Because of FATCA, the bank put a great deal of pressure on us to report details of our joint accounts to the IRS. My husband was furious and asserted that all the money in our joint accounts was his own earnings, and he had already paid taxes. He wrote to the banks and spoke to them, but his words fell on deaf ears. The banks kept sending us notices and he became increasingly resentful. Then he removed my name from all the accounts. Feeling distraught, I went to a different bank trying to open an account in my own name. I was refused by the bank because I was carrying an American passport. The second bank I approached was quite rude, saying they would never do any business with Americans. I now have no bank account, no credit card or debit card and I want a separation from my husband. He has insulted me and I am deeply hurt. A member of my family in the US wrote to a D Congressman asking for his advice. The Congressman replied that he himself had voted for FATCA and gave a lengthy and ignorant explanation. Recently, all members of my family assured me that they would certainly voted for the Republicans in the future. I myself will NEVER vote for the Democrats again. My life is shattered.

Canadian Marriage Institute Calls For Income Splitting

As a family of three, my wife, 18 month old daughter and I survive on one modest income. My wife had a decent job working in a television studio behind the scenes. However, before our daughter was born we decided that it would be best for the future mom to stay at home. With the reduced income we live frugally by choice. Still saving for retirement and putting the child tax benefits into an RESP. Yes, income splitting would benefit and unlike other families who can claim child care expenses we cannot. So I agree with the Conservative Parties platform to introduce income tax splitting.

S Korea 'Welcome' To Join TPP: US

The SUPREME COURT of CANADA;
The SHAREHOLDERS, corporates CANADA, AMERICA, EUROPE, CHINA, The TRANS PACIFIC NATIONS, et al,
VERSUS
the harmless non shareholders of Canada, both; Native & non Native, et al.

C-CITreaty, TPPartnership, CETAgreement, et al; More Taxes & Less Services to pay The SHAREHOLDERS (Tribunals).

“WILL The COURT CONSIDER...?”
Are YOU Depriving your Highest Court of the INFO to Decide Against the Global Corporate Economy?
Has Frau Bundaskanzarin Angela Merkel (Germ.) shared the Info with YOU?
by David E.H. Smith

(CAN.)...Therefore, as a consequence of the aforementioned abuses that have been listed in the enclosed research articles & the dire peril that these abuses puts the NON shareholding Canadians in, both; Native & non Native, et al, as an elaborate, ”inhumane”, ”unethical”, “immoral” & probably, criminal, enterprise, the writer humbly asks; under what circumstances would The Court consider the following?

1) Will The Court consider ensuring that any further attempts by off shore enterprises, such as the aforementioned attempts by the global corporate “arrangements”, including
corporate Canada & its associates within the government of Canada, et al, as a “reciprocity pool” of shared “secret decisions” against the non shareholders of Canada, et al,
will be dealt with punitively.

2) And, in the interim, until The Court can make a determination of any wrongful intent, &/or, abuses of the ”arrangements” as a criminal enterprise,
will the open & public Supreme Court of Canada consider
preventing the further use of the non shareholders' tax dollars from being used to make any, &/or, any more secret decisions against themselves, ie. the NON shareholders.

3) Furthermore, can, or, will The Court consider ordering the return of any & all of the tax dollars that have been used by the government, &/or, corporate Canada & their lawyers, et al, that have been used for the development of the aforementioned “arrangements” of a what The Court may determine to be a criminal enterprise (for examples; a) as a means of using/legitimizing off-shore money, et al, b) laundering money from the proceeds of criminal enterprises, &/or, c) going toward the funding of “criminals”, et al, who may be involved in other criminal, or, unethical, or, inhumane, immoral enterprises),
and thus,
the tax dollars have not been used for the purposes that the taxpayers had intended, such as; for goods, services (particularly to police organizations & judiciaries for their investigation of, not only the aforementioned secret/privileged relationship between corporate Canada via its lobbyists
and
the executives of the relevant political parties,
but, the alleged wrong doing by others, as well),
programs, health, education, etc. that are consistent with the NON shareholders' understanding of what “good” government entails
and
return the tax dollars with punitive penalties paid to the NON shareholding Canadians, both: Native & non Native, et al.

Similarly, given the reckless endangering situation that the government, et al, has placed the NON shareholders in, can, or, will the Court ensure that the necessary funds will be spent for their, the NON shareholders', intended purposes in order to “guarantee” these services, et al,
and
consider ordering corporate Canada, its shareholders & their lawyers, advisers & service beneficiaries of the present “arrangements” will be paid with their own funds, prior to presenting their future “adventures”, &/or, “arrangements” to:
A) The Court, &/or, its representatives
and then,
B) the NON shareholders for their consideration, discussions, improvements, &/or, rejections, et al,
in open forums that have eliminated the fear of recriminations, retributions, etc. by corporate Canada, its shareholders, The Tribunals, et al.

4 A) And, lest one forgets that the revelation of the present perilous International treaties/”arrangements” began with the regard for the rights of Native Canadians as per the Treaties/”arrangements” that corporate Canada & the Government of Canada have “foisted” upon Native Canadians who have been deliberately deprived of the due diligence information, such as the information in The W.A.D. Accord, et al,

I am compelled to ask The Court:
will the Court consider whether, or, not The Court's recent “Tsilhqot'in Decision”, makes
it easier for corporate Canada, its global economic associates, their shareholders, et al, to sue the Tsilhqot'in First Nation & other Native communities in Canada
and thereby, to seek financial relief from the harmless NON shareholding, non Native Canadians via the Government of Canada? And, will The Court consider preventing
any unrelated hardship to the NON shareholders as a consequence of the creation of the
aforementioned Tribunals & corporate Canada & its associates intent to obtain the unencumbered access to the natural resources that are continuing to be found in Canada & irrespective of Native title to these lands & its resources?

B) And, similarly, does the plan espoused by the American born Tom Eugene Flanagan which would enable First Nations communities to become municipalities, also make it easier for corporate Canada, its associates, et al, to sue Native communities, or, seek remedies from the Government of Canada (ie. from the NON shareholders) for any encumbrances that the new, Native municipalities, et al, might impose upon the development, &/or, access to the aforementioned natural resources, etc.?

(And, regarding the settlement of Native land claims that are presently before Canadian courts, & will continue to be before the courts for some time, the following question can help The Court a great deal in these deliberations, and that is; how were Europeans convinced to settle in North America in the first place & in particular, the land that became known as Canada?)

5) Therefore, can I only hope that given the enclosed information about the abuse, the potential for abuse & the intent of the aforementioned Tribunals which is:
A) to abuse & to limit The Court's ability to hear...

S Korea 'Welcome' To Join TPP: US

“But, WILL CHINA SUPPORT PUTIN (BRICS, et al); The WHITE KNIGHT”?

TPP, CETA, C-CIT SHAREHOLDERS & NON Shareholders AWAIT
SUPREME COURT of CANADA'S, et al, FINDINGS, et al to PROCEED.

It will be good for, not only the NON shareholders of the enterprises that will be generated by the on-going global "cooperation" of corporate treaties, agreements, partnerships, et al, including the China - Canada Investment Treaty, The Trans Pacific Partnership, the EU - Canada CETA,
but,
for the potential shareholders, as well,
who are quite interested to know if President Xi Jinping (China) will support Russia as a co-member of B.R.I.C.S. when President Putin uses his potential role as "The White Knight".

And, while President Putin's potential support as “The WHITE KNIGHT” in the development of the CETAgreement, et al, litigation below can dramatically off-set the hundreds of billions of dollars due to the present & future sanctions leveled by American led, et al, corporations & financial institutions via their governments' signing their global corporate economic treaties/”arrangements”,
and the potential for making trillions of dollars for the Russian economy over the next 30 - 40 years & beyond,
are the citizens (SHAREHOLDERS & NON shareholders) of Germany & JAPAN just being prudent in wanting to wait for the outcome of:
1) the submission to The SUPREME COURT of CANADA & the highest court in Germany, et al, to make their findings regarding “The Submission”:
"The SHAREHOLDERS & Corporations of AMERICA, et al
v
the harmless Canadian NON shareholders, et al"?

and
2) "The MERKEL (Chanc. Germ.) Letter; To Sue, or, Be Sued”?
(see; davidehsmith.wordpress.com )

Have the federal representatives of the nations that are the potential signatories of CETA, TPP, et al, willingly provided the NON shareholders of China, Canada, Europe, the Trans Pacific nations, et al, with the aforementioned information? Are the federal representatives, et al, depriving the NON shareholders of Canada, et al, of the due diligence information that enables the family of the NON shareholders of Canada, et al, to make informed decisions regarding their financial planning?

And, would a reasonable person conclude by a preponderance of the evidence, &/or, beyond a reasonable doubt, that these documents, et al, demonstrate that the SHAREHOLDERS of AMERICA, CANADA , the EU & Trans Pacific nations, et al, really do not care which NON shareholders pay them the punitive penalties, etc., by way of their secret (“Death-Star Chamber”) TRIBUNALS, as long as its not the SHAREHOLDERS who pay & not their corporations regardless of which country the corporations:
1) operating from,
2) maintain their headquarters,
3) use to do their cyber banking, accounting, "taxation", etc.
&
4) et al?

And, re; the CHINA – Canada Investment Treaty, is it understandable why the “coveted” Hong Kong investor & his associates are “concerned” with the aforementioned findings of The SUPREME COURT of CANADA, et al, & the effects of the findings, et al, on the EU, AMERICA, the Trans Pacific nations, et al, treaties with CHINA, et al?

In regard to arms sales; how about the sale of arms (non nuclear) in general in regard to the "trade" treaties that are continuing to be secretly negotiated and how will the Tribunals, both; B.R.I.C.S. & non BRICS, adjudicate, decide & penalize the NON SHAREHOLDERS for the sale of legitimate, semi- legitimate & "illegal" sales of arms within the signatories nations & the those of others, &/or, unaligned? Of particular, interest is China, which does have an treaty with Canada, which puts China "at odds" with other arms manufacturing & nuclear powers that it (China) does not have any "arrangements" with.
Are these types of questions that your politicians & the corporate lobbyists calls "forget-me-nots" ("Buyer Beware") that will be (maybe) worked out after the fast tracked signatures are obtained?

On the other hand, it may be worth repeating yet again,
"What the TREATY of VERSAILLES was to the 20th century PALES in COMPARISON to the TPP, CETA, C-CIT, NAFTA, et al, in the 21st".

Switzerland To Add Info Exchange Provisions To All DTAs

The Swiss need to require reciprocation by USA as a condition for delivering data to USA, because currently USA law does not allow that reciprocal delivery and so President Obama cannot deliver on the promise.
Another issue here is the imposition of USA taxes on persons who don't even live in USA, just because USA law declares them to be citizens because the persons were born in USA, even if they lived only a few days in the country. Even after they relinquish USA citizenship USA continues taxing them and imposing devastating FBAR penalties. The Swiss do need to assist in tracing ransom money and bribes if delivered into Swiss bank accounts, but the Swiss also need to tell Obama that the boundaries of the United States are the boundaries of the United States.

Democrats Abroad Warn On FATCA Effect For American Expats

Carmelan Polce made a bogus statement that misrepresents everything that Americans were saying: They want this policy to work, he says. Americans overseas want FATCA repealed. I am a Democrat. I am pro gay marriage, pro abortion, I fight discrimination wherever I see it. And I am a single female in her thirties. FATCA is such a terrifying Nazi-style Third Reich law, that I have completely stopped supporting the Democrats. In my opinion, they are evil. I believe now that they duped me for years, trying to convince me that they were for civil rights when in actuality they are scary fascist lunatics. I will never in my lifetime vote of a Democrat again - ever. Even if a Republican runs for office, any office, who I totally disagree with, I will vote for him or her. I now see the light. Democrats equal a totalitarian police state that bullies its citizens. Republicans, although I disagree with 80% of what they say, I am not afraid of. They don't frighten me or terrorize me. The Democratic party does.

Democrats Abroad Warn On FATCA Effect For American Expats

Democrats and Republicans are guilty of treating American expats with suspicion. we are all guilty of money laundering, drug smuggling, tax cheating until we prove ourselves innocent. I never had a problem with the IRS while I lived in the US. Since moving to Canada 12 years ago, it has been nothing but trouble. The US needs to start treating us like citizens instead of "US Persons for Tax Purposes" and stop asking us to report our non-US spouses. We need to report their details as well. They are considered "non resident aliens" and need to have an "ITIN" (individual tax payer identification number"). Besides FATCA I need to send a surveillance document to the US Treasury's "Financial Crimes Enforcement Network". Instead of treating Americans abroad as goodwill ambassadors or assets to the US economy, we are treated as opportunities to milk as for taxes and penalties for the slightest "non-willful" mistakes. The process and forms we need to file are painful, confusing, time consuming, madenning, and the rules change every year. My fellow expats and I in Canada used to talk about plans for Thanksgiviing or 4th of July. Now all we talk about is our situation with the IRS, how many forms did you fill this time, did you get penalized lately, are you thinking about renouncing? Something is wrong. Both parties are complicit and clueless.

IRS Announces Help For US Small Business

Unfortunately, US Persons running small businesses abroad get no assistance from the IRS to resolve the very complicated tax rules due to the US policy of Citizenship Based Taxation (CBT). Moreover, benefits for small businesses provided in the US Person's country of residence are not recognized by the IRS. Once again, the US government just takes and gives nothing back to Americans trying to build and run small businesses abroad.

Lew Calls For Immediate US Anti-Inversion Legislation

What a moron Lew is. Corporate legal teams will always find way to circumvent any law that the bureaucrats dream up. If I was running Apple Computer, among others, (with only 30% of sales in the US) I would seriously consider moving abroad. The main point is that the US government taxes the foreign earnings at full rates when repatriated. These companies are growing abroad, but not in the US. Why do you think Google, Apple, etc. have trillions offshore?

Slovakia Urged To Reform Labor Taxes

If the IMF had real intellectual honesty, it would advise Slovakia to shift the tax burden from labour and capital to land values. The optimal tax rate on both capital and labour is zero. Using land values as a tax base any country can become a perfectly natural and legitimate tax haven - the oil States pretty much do it from one form of land value alone.

Cost Of Renouncing US Citizenship Increases Fourfold

Not being an American, I find all this quite strange.

I would have thought renunciation was an objective fact to be ascertained from overt acts such as a public action eg burning a US passport outside a US Embassy, joining a foreign army, taking up a new citizenship and explicitly renouncing US citizenship...

Whether it gets recorded or not is another story.

As for FATCA and all that rubbish, whoever thought the USA would do a better job of surveillance on bank accounts than the Gestapo?

Lest we forget, there are reasons for financial privacy.
