Weehawken accepting early payments on 2018 property taxes

Posted on May 2, 2021Categories lodfkjsaTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Weehawken accepting early payments on 2018 property taxes

first_imgWEEHAWKEN – In reaction to the recently-passed tax reform bill, which reduces deductions of property tax mortgage interest beginning in 2018, Weehawken is accepting pre-payment of 2018 property taxes this week.The tax bill, which Trump signed into law last week, places a $10,000 deduction limit on property, state, and local income taxes starting next year. Previously, the limit was higher. Due to this change, taxpayers nationwide have inquired about paying their 2018 property taxes before the new year so they can deduct them on their tax returns due April 15, 2018.On Dec. 27 and 28, the town’s Tax Collector’s Office will be open until 8 p.m. Residents can estimate their 2018 pre-payment tax based on their 2017 tax bill. If your 2018 tax bill changes due to tax rate changes or changes from the town’s recent revaluation, you’ll either have a credit or a balance to pay next year.The township is not offering advice on whether property owners should pre-pay their taxes, how much to pre-pay, or possible tax impact. For more in-depth inquiries, officials recommend that property owners consult with their tax advisors and mortgage companies.To ensure payments made by check are deposited by year’s end, they must be received no later than the 28th.Checks must include the property’s block and lot number. They must also indicate that the payment is for 2018 in the note section to avoid a refund for tax over payment. In addition, all 2017 property taxes must be paid and up to date before the town can apply any 2018 pre-payment taxes. The office is also accepting in-person payments.For more information, contact the office at (201) 319-6015. It is located within Weehawken Town Hall, located at 400 Park Ave.last_img read more

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Welcomes Chris Harford During LOCKN’ Late Night [Pro-Shot Video]

first_img[Video: Relix]Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returns to LOCKN’ tonight for a late night set at the Relix Stage, following Widespread Panic’s highly anticipated collaborative set with Margo Price.For a full list of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s upcoming tour dates and ticketing information head to the band’s website.Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | LOCKN’ Music Festival | Arrington, VA | 8/23/2018Set: Jam> Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)> Easy Wind, Dark Star tease> Row Jimmy, Space> Let It Grow> Dancing In The Street> Jam> Estimated Prophet> Hippie Dream (feat. Chris Harford)> Morning Dew Hot off a Red Rocks Amphitheater show last weekend, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead brought the fast-paced Grateful Dead magic to LOCKN’ Music Festival in the beautiful rolling hills of Arrington, VA, for a late night dance party. JRAD’s late night set was preceded by Lettuce and Umphrey’s McGee, who creatively collaborated together on LOCKN’s unique turntable style stage, mixing up the funk and rock like it was nobody’s business.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened things up with a “Jam”, as drummer and bandleader Joe Russo got loose, stretching out his octopus-like arms in preparation for a late night fiasco at one of America’s top jam band festivals. The “Jam” smoothly trickled into “Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)”, with bassist Dave Dreiwitz locking in with Russo, providing the most tight-knit rhythm section for guitar wizards Scott Metzger and Tom Hamilton to solo over. “Easy Wind”, the Robert Hunter penned tune that the late Ron “Pigpen” McKernan sang with such tenacity, was up next. Hamilton took the lead and melted some faces with his quick-witted guitar work, before a final scorching solo brought it all home.A solid “Dark Star” tease was sandwiched in between “Easy Wind” and “Row Jimmy” that followed, as fans joined together and sang along to the beloved song. With an absolutely perfect weather forecast for the entire LOCKN’ weekend, the crowd appeared to be in the highest of spirits, with ample energy as the night grew darker. JRAD’s take on the Grateful Dead’s catalog is unique and gutsy every step of the way, as the LOCKN’ crowd saw last night with Russo leading the quintet into deep “Space” territory. Hamilton and Metzger let out some twangy, cosmic sounds, as Russo went to work, delicately commanding the ship through pure improvisation.“Let It Grow” made way for “Dancing In The Streets”, as LOCKN’ was swingin’ and swayin’ to Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s perfected takes on everyone’s favorite Grateful Dead songs. Hamilton continued to wow the crowd, as he ripped through tenacious solos, with Metzger firing licks back at him like the two have been playing together for thirty years. Marco Benevento slid into the mix, following along with Hamilton and Metzger’s rising solos. Coming out of an extended “Jam”, Hamilton let out the opening notes to “Estimated Prophet”, with an intent LOCKN’ crowd singing along once again.Russo invited up longtime friend and frequent collaborator Chris Harford for a cover of Neil Young’s “Hippie Dream”. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead rarely invites up guests, but the setting and song selection for last night’s sit-in was spot on. The JRAD boys brought their red-hot set to a close with “Morning Dew”, leaving everyone with the message, “It doesn’t matter anyway”.You can watch all of LOCKN’s sets below, with JRAD’s set starting at the 4:55:00 mark.last_img read more

Wuthering Heights

first_imgSaint Mary’s Aquila Theatre will host a live production of the novel “Wuthering Heights” on Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the O’Laughlin Auditorium.This performance is part of the Shaheen/Duggan Performing Arts Series, which also includes the production of “Raisin’ Cane: A Harlem Renaissance Odyssey” which will be performed Sept. 18.Richard Baxter, Director of Special Events at Saint Mary’s College, said both performances are a good opportunity for students to get involved with the arts on campus.“You have the Harlem Renaissance [Odyssey] this month and the classic English novel the next month,” he said. “Who wouldn’t want to experience that?”Baxter said the goal of the Performing Arts Series is to provide the students with a well-rounded experience during their four years in school.“So they should, within this four year period, experience theatre, dance, comedy,” Baxter said. “They should be provided with a healthy mix of what performing arts would be so that when they leave here, if they have attended, they can say ‘wow, I’ve experienced this, this, and this,’ rather than only one nutrient. It’s a healthy diet.”Since many are familiar with Emily Bronte’s classic novel, Baxter said he hopes the students can experience this novel in a whole new way.“Often times when you read a great novel, you enjoy it on a very personal level,” he said. “If you were to go see a theatrical version of that novel you get to experience it as a group, and I am hoping that is what they are going to get.“I want them to experience some excitement and experience a different facet of the story because they’ll see the characters, they’ll experience the action and it’s a great theatre company.”Baxter said he wants to open up students’ minds to a new way of thinking about the novel.“Students will have a chance to see things in the story that they never anticipated, or they will be reaffirmed of what they read,” he said. “It’s just a different way to experience a great story.”Tickets for Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame and Holy Cross students are $13.“This is an opportunity that doesn’t come along very often,” he said. “Prices are relatively low and the experience is rich, and it’s here.“You can roll out of your room and come see an exciting performance, and you don’t have to deal with parking or any of those things that you would associate with good theatre. You don’t even need to check your coat. You can just come in and enjoy the performance and write about it or think about it or plan your next attendance.”Tags: Bronte, Harlem Renaissance Odyssey, Performing Arts Series, Richard Baxter, Shaheen/Duggan, Wuthering Heightslast_img read more

Berger slams merchants’ interchange claims

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger hit back at merchants’ claims that savings from the Durbin amendment’s debit interchange price controls benefit consumers, when in fact the cap has created a $36 billion windfall for merchants.In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Berger called merchants out for misrepresenting the price controls’ benefits for consumers. He also noted the cap has caused many financial institutions to have to cut back on programs, hurting consumers.“Merchants are trying to use the payments systems for free while pocketing all of the benefits,” Berger said. “Prices in the stores are the same or higher. Quite simply, the Durbin amendment should be repealed.”Berger also touted the repeal being included in the proposed Dodd-Frank Act alternative being drafted by Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas. continue reading »last_img read more

ACH picks up speed

first_img continue reading » The rails built for economical heavy payment traffic weren’t built for speed, but that’s changing with the introduction of same-day ACH. NACHA The Electronic Payments Association will move ACH to same-day credits and debits pretty quickly, predicts Peter Olynick, senior practice lead for retail banking at NTT DATA Consulting Inc., Plano, Texas.“You’ll see multiple batch windows, maybe one every four to six hours. And that will become one viable fast payment option, but we won’t see just one winner. There will be multiple options with multiple speeds for multiple situations.”This faster payment option is being phased in, notes Deborah Phillips, managing director for payments strategy at CUES Supplier member Jack Henry & Associates, Monett, Mo., with intraday transmissions already occurring in Step 1 of a three-step process. CUs and banks now must receive same-day ACH credit files at intervals throughout the day (“intraday” presentments).“So far, the impact has been modest,” she says. “We’re primarily seeing expedited payroll files at this point. NACHA reports higher than predicted volumes, which could be an indicator of market appetite for faster payments.” 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Australia’s Future Fund makes a A$5.7bn Q1 loss

first_img“As the global economic impact of COVID-19 unfolds, the board will continue to prioritise portfolio flexibility, ensuring the portfolio is robust to a range of possible scenarios, and has significant liquidity.”“This will open opportunities from the current market to position ourselves for long-term returns,” he said.The fund’s chief investment officer, Raphael Arndt, said the fund sold more than 31 illiquid assets, raising a total of A$10bn. It had also sold interests in private equity in the secondary market, raising a further A$4bn.Asked to break down performance of individual asset classes, Arndt said the fund did not normally report asset class returns in detail.“Having said that, obviously the equities and credit sectors performed poorly, and in line – or roughly in line – with the markets.“So it was defensive overlay positions – foreign currency positions, interest rates options and our defensive hedge fund strategy – that helped insulate our portfolio in the downturn.”Arndt said the fund had taken advantage of “several opportunities” created by the recent US market correction.Asked if the fund was now poised to enter the market, he said: “Firstly, we need to understand what the outlook is likely to be. We are still in lockdowns.”It would take time, he said, to see whether the large amount of government stimulus around the world would be sufficient to offset the earnings disruption in the wake of COVID-19.The fund would look at assets, including illiquid assets, on a case-by-case basis to assess the price and value of a particular investment.“It is definitely the case that risk remains elevated, and it is very difficult to predict what is going to happen in the world,” he said. Australia’s A$160bn Future Fund made a loss of A$5.7bn (€3.8bn) in the first quarter of the year – an annualised loss of 0.2% for the financial year to date (July 2019-March 2020).The negative return did not factor in adjusted valuations for the fund’s illiquid assets, which the fund said would be done after June 30, as in every other year.The fund has managed to avoid the worst of the COVID-19 market crash because it began shedding some of its illiquid private market assets five years ago.Future Fund chair Peter Costello said it had prioritised reducing its exposure to illiquid assets over recent years.last_img read more
