  • Elders with Rs 5 lakh taxable income can seek TDS exemption on

    first_imgNew Delhi: Senior citizens with a taxable income of up to Rs 5 lakh can now submit in banks and post offices Form 15H to claim exemption from TDS on interest income on deposits, according to a CBDT notification. Earlier, the limit for seeking Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) exemption was Rs 2.5 lakh. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) has issued a notification amending Form 15H to give effect to the Budget announcement. The Union Budget 2019-20 has given full tax rebate to individuals having a taxable annual income of up to Rs 5 lakh, benefitting around 3 crore middle class taxpayers. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documentsThe amendments by the CBDT states that banks and financial institutions would accept Form 15H from assessees whose tax liability is ‘nil’ after considering rebate available under Section 87A of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Senior citizens, above 60 years of age, have to submit Form 15H to banks at the beginning of a financial year to ensure that no tax is deducted at source on interest income. To provide tax relief to the taxpayers earning income up to Rs 5 lakh a year, the Budget increased the rebate under Section 87A from Rs 2,500 to Rs 12,500, thereby ensuring that those earning income up to Rs 5 lakh do not have to pay any taxes. Nangia Advisors (Andersen Global) Executive Director Neha Malhotra said the banks will now have to accept Form 15H from those earning income up to Rs 5 lakh, since eventually after claiming the rebate under Section 87A, their tax payable shall be ‘nil’. “Had this change not been brought, taxpayers earning income up to Rs 5 lakh would have suffered TDS on interest from banks and would have had to file a tax return to claim refund of such TDS. This change not only saves the taxpayer from the hassel of filing ITR to claim refund but also reduces the administrative burden of CPC (central processing centre) to process such returns and issue refunds,” Malhotra added.last_img read more

  • Oakville Ont council votes to give heritage status for Glen Abbey

    TORONTO — Glen Abbey, one of Canada’s most famous golf courses, received some protection from potential redevelopment into a residential and commercial complex on Monday night.Town council voted unanimously in favour of designating the golf course — which has hosted the Canadian Open more times than any other — under the Ontario Heritage Act.Glen Abbey owner ClubLink has proposed development that would see the course become a mix of some 3,200 residential units as well as office and retail space.Following the vote before a packed council chamber, Mayor Rob Burton said council had heard the concerns of residents who want to keep the course intact.“I think I can summarize what I heard as people saying that Glen Abbey is Oakville and Oakville is Glen Abbey,” he said.“There’s a lot more to Oakville than Glen Abbey in my humble opinion, but I certainly think there’s a lot of weight in what they said to that effect.”Burton said before the vote that a heritage designation means there are rules to be followed when it comes to preserving heritage attributes of a property, but added there was still “flexibility” and an appeals process.“I do know that heritage is our past and heritage is our future and I know that this town has taken a strong leadership role in the conservation of its heritage resources,” Burton said outside council chambers.Fraser Damoff, a spokesman for the Save Glen Abbey Coalition, a group fighting to stop the development, earlier described the golf course as a “gem” for Canadian golf and part of the town’s identity.Golf legend Jack Nicklaus designed the course, which opened 40 years ago. The Canadian Golf Museum and Hall of Fame and Golf Canada offices are housed on the site, which has hosted the Canadian Open 29 times and is slated to host it again next year.“Oakville as a whole has built around Glen Abbey over the years. It’s been central to the design of the town. Certainly when a lot of people think Oakville, they think of Glen Abbey,” Damoff said.“As other areas of Oakville were swallowed up by single detached homes, it became more and more important for Glen Abbey to stay as it is.”The movement to protect the course was given a boost after the Canadian Open in July, when winner Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela said he wants the club to stay open.“I’m going to be one of the biggest voices to keep this course open, especially if I keep winning here,” said Vegas. “I’ll definitely make a statement on trying to keep Glen Abbey going.”Burton said prior to the vote that the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey has shown off Oakville to the world.“That’s a pretty valuable image and stature for the town of Oakville in the global competition for investment and business,” he said, adding that the golf tournament brings in millions in visitor spending.“It costs us a significant amount of money to host the Open, but we believe that it’s a very good return for our community.”Oakville town council will be considering ClubLink’s application to redevelop the golf course on Sept. 26.——On the web:The town of Oakville’s website features information on the development status for Glen Abbey: read more

  • Fewer Americans seeking unemployment benefits as applications drop 5000 last week to

According to the Labor Department on Thursday, Dec. 24, 2015, the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell the week before, reflecting a job market that continues to look persistently healthy. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee) WASHINGTON – The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell last week, reflecting a job market that continues to look persistently healthy.THE NUMBERS: Applications for jobless aid declined 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 267,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The less volatile 4-week average ticked up slightly to 272,500.Over the past 12 months, the number of people collecting benefits has dropped 7.7 per cent to 2.2 million.THE TAKEAWAY: The U.S. job market continues to appear strikingly robust. Applications for benefits are often a proxy for layoffs, so the decline indicates that employers are holding onto their workers and potentially looking to expand their payrolls.KEY DRIVERS: Net job growth has been robust. Employers are hiring 210,000 workers a month so far this year. And unemployment last month remained at a seven-year low 5 per cent.Claims have been below the critical threshold of 300,000 for the past 42 weeks, a level that generally points to monthly job gains in excess of 200,000.BIG PICTURE: Employers and consumers have regained a level of confidence with the recovery from the Great Recession in the middle of its seventh year. Americans have stepped up their purchases of autos, homes and restaurant meals, and the economy has consistently added jobs even as the rest of the global economy struggles.

  • To you I bequeath Dont procrastinate writing a will experts say

    OTTAWA – It could be the most important document people write, and they won’t be alive to see it through.Writing a will may be at the bottom of many to-do lists, but financial and legal experts say that laying out your wishes can ensure your money goes where you want and may save your estate from unnecessary bills after you’re gone.Carol Harding, a wealth adviser with CIBC Wealth Advisory Services, says having a will is like having insurance.“Hopefully nothing happens,” she said.“But if something does happen, at least you’ve got the right paperwork in place to help the assets go to the right place.”When people die without a will, it is considered intestate and the courts will appoint an executor to administer an estate with the assets distributed according to the rules laid out provincially.“What may happen is that there are assets allocated to children that might be needed for other purposes,” Harding said.“If assets are transferred to a spouse — for example, RRSPs — they can transfer without being taxable, where if you have RRSPs and they are transferred either to a child or to a sibling, that becomes taxable income.”Tina Garbas-Tyrrell, a wills and estates lawyer at Burke-Robertson, says before people draft a will they need to consider issues like who they want to administer the estate and, in the case of those who have young children, who will become their guardian.They also need to have a good idea of their debts and assets, including RRSPs, TFSAs, property and other investments and how those should be divided.“We want to know: What kinds of assets do you have? What kinds of debts do you have and where do you want your wealth to go?” she said.Garbas-Tyrrell said if someone holds their accounts jointly with a spouse, that can make things easier if they don’t have a will. But if something happens to both spouses, their estate would be left without clear direction.“If you are both on a plane and the plane goes down and both of you are gone, where does your wealth go?” she said.Without a will, there may also be additional costs that could add up even if people don’t have a big estate, Garbas-Tyrrell said.“If that’s sitting in a bank account, it’s quite possible that the bank will require you to probate or get a certificate of appointment, which means your loved ones to release those funds can end up incurring $2,000 to $3,000 in legal fees,” she said.“Whereas if you had a will it could have been released by the bank without any additional fees.”And if the situation is challenged, legal costs would drive that even higher and far beyond the cost it would have been to prepare a will.Wills can be written by hand and signed or done using kits, but Harding said while that may be better than nothing, people may miss out on some options they might not have considered.“Sometimes those wills too are delayed in court because if there are different parties interested, they seem to be delayed because there may be more arguments,” she said.It is also about more than money.Harding noted that if people have children and die without a will, the courts will have to decide who will become their guardian.“So even though you may not have a lot of assets, that’s one big thing to think about and anybody that has children should have a will solely for that purpose.” To you I bequeath: Don’t procrastinate writing a will, experts say by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 3, 2016 8:00 am MDT Last Updated Mar 3, 2016 at 9:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

  • A Radical Proposal To Destroy The NHLs Loser Point

    The NHL’s “loser point” is the stupidest rule in sports. For the non-puckheads among you, here’s how it works: The NHL awards one point in the standings to a team that loses a game in overtime or a shootout. But teams get two points for winning a game, whether in regulation or beyond. You don’t need a degree in #fancystats to recognize the problem: There are a total of three points to distribute when a game goes to overtime but just two otherwise. So it really pays off to play for OT. As FiveThirtyEight contributors Noah Davis and Michael Lopez documented Wednesday, this encourages dull, passive hockey. Goal scoring falls dramatically in the third period of tied games, right when a game should be coming to its climax.This is more than a minor annoyance; the loser point has already changed the identity of at least one NHL champion. In 2012, the Los Angeles Kings finished with 40 wins and 42 losses; they made the playoffs ahead of the 42-40 Dallas Stars because they accumulated 15 loser points to the Stars’ five. Then the Kings went on to win the Stanley Cup.Fortunately, having a rule as dumb as the loser point means that almost anything would be an improvement. For instance, the NHL could award three points for a win in regulation. An overtime or shootout winner would still get two points. That would at least make each game worth the same amount in the standings.Or you could eliminate the shootout and go back to having ties. The NHL claims that 70 percent to 80 percent of its fans like the shootout but has never made any detailed data on this available to the public. As regular readers of FiveThirtyEight will know, there are lots of ways to manipulate survey questions to produce a desired outcome. Maybe the same consultants telling Donald Trump that he’d make a great presidential candidate are advising Gary Bettman on the loser point.But I have something more radical in mind. Here’s the idea: You keep playing hockey until someone wins. You know, like in the NBA and Major League Baseball and pretty much every other sport but soccer — and like the NHL itself during the playoffs.The usual objection is that this could lead to some extraordinarily long games for two measly points in the standings. What if the Flyers and Penguins play a five-overtime game and the Penguins need to catch a flight to Calgary? Why add even more ice time to a grueling, 82-game regular season?But these cases are rarer than you might think. If you played every NHL regular-season game under playoff rules — 5-on-5 overtime, indefinitely, until someone scores — it would increase ice time by only about 3 percent. In the chart below, I’ve tracked what percentage of overtime playoff games (since 1995) were resolved within a given number of minutes. In the majority of games — 56 percent — someone scored within the first 10 minutes. Only 7 percent of games, meanwhile, required two or more overtimes.Overall, the average overtime game required 13.6 minutes before someone scored. Since 23 percent of playoff games went to OT, that makes the average length of a playoff game about 63 minutes, as compared to around 61 minutes during the regular season.That’s not much of an increase, and if the NHL were concerned about it, it could counteract it by reducing the regular season to 80 games from 82. Then you’d have no shootouts, no ties, no loser point and no overall increase in ice time.Still, maybe we’re concerned about those cases when one team has played a multiple-overtime game and faces off against another on fresh skates. Equivalent cases come up all the time in other sports — baseball, basketball, tennis — and they deal with it. But you could argue that it’s a bigger problem in hockey given the punishing nature of the sport.The solution is to take players off the ice, which will increase scoring. This isn’t a new idea at all — during the regular season, the NHL plays 4-on-4 hockey in overtime, and there have been proposals to go to 3-on-3.But here’s my insight: Goals are scored so quickly during 3-on-3 play that you could play every game to sudden death and pretty much never inconvenience anyone. The players, the referees, the 13-year-old in Winnipeg who refuses to do his algebra homework until the Jets game is finished — they’d all be OK.You may have noticed, in the graphic above, that I drew a smooth curve (labeled “model”) alongside the historical data. The curve is formed by assuming that there’s a 7.4 percent chance of scoring a goal per minute of overtime play, which is the historical rate in the playoffs since 1995. As you can see, the curve “fits” the historical data extremely well. That means the length of overtime games is easy to model.1It also implies that the rate of scoring is fairly constant throughout overtime. If you know the overall rate of scoring, you can accurately guess how many games will require at least two overtimes, for instance.In 4-on-4 play, there’s a 9.1 percent chance of a goal being scored each minute (according to research by Stephen Pettigrew), about 20 percent higher than under 5-on-5 conditions. It’s 3-on-3 action that sees a really radical shift, however, with a 16.8 percent chance of a goal each minute.So what if overtime was played 3-on-3? About 60 percent of games would be resolved within the first five minutes, and 84 percent within the first 10 minutes. Only about 3 percent of overtime games would require double overtime, and fewer than 1 in 1000 would go to triple-OT. The average overtime game would require just six minutes to complete, barely longer than under the current rules.2And you’d reduce the number of overtime games since the loser point would be eliminated — teams would no longer have an incentive to play for OT. And with just three skaters on the ice at a time, teams could give their bench plenty of rest between shifts.The NHL could also adopt some compromise or another. It could play five minutes of 4-on-4 overtime immediately at the end of regulation, as it does now, then clean the ice3During the regular season, the NHL doesn’t bring the Zamboni out and clean the ice after regulation, something you’d probably need to do if you’re going to play more than a few minutes worth of extra hockey. As a fan, I don’t get why the NHL seems to be in a rush to finish overtime games during the regular season — I love the tension that builds up during the pre-overtime intermission in the playoffs. and play an indefinite amount of 3-on-3 overtime if needed. It could declare a tie if no one had scored after a full 20-minute period of 3-on-3 overtime. (Ties would be a rarity, almost like they are now in the NFL.) It could keep removing players from the ice until it was just goalie versus goalie.4The NHL would need to relax the rule that prohibits goalies from advancing past the red line. Would you not stop whatever you were doing to watch Henrik Lundqvist versus Tuukka Rask, one-on-one?Or insert your own proposal: Overtime decided by rock-paper-scissors? Nearly anything would be better than the loser point. read more

  • Des repas sobres en carbone au menu des restaurants alsaciens

    first_imgDes repas sobres en carbone au menu des restaurants alsaciensEn partenariat avec l’association Objectif climat, la Fédération des chefs de cuisine et restaurateurs d’Alsace ont lancé l’opération “Manger, c’est agir”. Pendant tout le mois de novembre, les restaurants alsaciens proposeront sur leurs cartes des menus au bilan carbone considérablement réduit.Jusqu’à la fin du mois, une quarantaine de restaurateurs alsaciens ajouteront à leurs cartes des repas sobres en carbone. Dans le cadre de l’opération “Manger, c’est agir”, menée en partenariat avec l’association Objectif Climat, les chefs privilégieront pour réduire le bilan carbone de leurs menus des produits locaux et de saison.Cette opération vise à sensibiliser les consommateurs quant à la quantité d’émissions de gaz à effet de serre engendrée par leur alimentation, et donc à l’impact de celle-ci sur le réchauffement climatique. De leur production, à leur conservation, en passant par leur emballage et bien sûr leur transport, nos aliments sont, avant d’arriver dans nos assiettes, responsables d’une importante pollution. Comme le rappelle Objectif Climat, un tiers des gaz à effet de serre émis en France provient de ce que nous mangeons.La campagne “Manger, c’est agir” a ainsi pour but de prouver qu’il est possible de réduire sensiblement le bilan carbone de nos repas, en suivant quelques conseils simples, comme préférer des produits locaux et de saison, consommer moins de viande, limiter la consommation de produits surgelés, et privilégier les produits vendus dans des emballages simples, non individuels et en matière recyclée.Des plats sobres en carbone, bons et pas chers À lire aussiPourquoi le café donne-t-il envie de faire caca ?”Nous ne voulons pas obliger les restaurateurs à ne plus vendre de viande de veau (dont un kilo équivaut en carbone à un trajet de 220 km en voiture) ou de boeuf (70 km), mais l’agrémenter de légumes de saison pour faire baisser la note”, souligne Bruno Jahn, directeur de l’Union des métiers et des industries de l’hôtellerie pour le Bas-Rhin. Certains restaurateurs tombent dans la facilité en achetant des carottes congelées pré-râpées, pré-découpées, regrette M. Jahn, alors que selon Jean-Michel Augé, président de l’association à l’origine de l’opération, on peut faire un plat sobre en carbone et pas cher, un boudin aux pommes par exemple. “Pour autant, il faut aussi que les clients changent leurs habitudes en hiver et acceptent de manger des pommes plutôt que des fraises en dessert”, objecte pour sa part Jacques Lorentz, président de la Fédération des chefs de cuisine et restaurateurs d’Alsace. Tous les restaurants alsaciens participant à l’opération sont recensés sur le site Internet (lien non disponible) d’Objectif Climat. Selon Jean-Michel Augé, l’Alsace pourrait économiser l’équivalent carbone d’une ville de 3.500 habitants si les 1,8 million d’Alsaciens mangeaient une fois par mois un repas sobre en carbone.Le 8 novembre 2011 à 20:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
