"There are important changes to EITC that will help this credit reach more hard-working families this year," IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a statement. Historically without the expansion, 1 in 5 eligible Americans don't claim the EITC, prompting the Internal Revenue Service to hold an EITC Awareness Day each year — this year on January 28 — to make sure taxpayers don't miss out.

“Daddy was hitting mommy with a blue stick,” the 11-year-old daughter of a woman allegedly beaten to death in Long Beach said in a forensic interview with authorities. The stick was actually a blue concrete pipe, and the events that the couple's eldest daughter shared with forensic interviewers, along with other evidence, backed up what Long Beach police suspected all along: Robert Oshinski, 37, had allegedly killed his common-law wife, Ashley A. “Angie” Barbara. After hearing the evidence, it didn't take long for Justice Court Judge Dianne Ladner to find there was enough evidence to bound the case over to a Harrison County grand jury for indictments.

The notion of a scam seemed to make even more sense than thinking that the IRS could be sending letters to people who already paid their taxes and filed their returns. Why would the IRS need another return? If the federal government cashed their checks, she and others wondered, doesn't that mean the IRS received their return in the mail — since the return and check were mailed together?

Attorneys for Election Systems & Software told former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman in a letter dated Jan. 21 that it would not comply, calling the subpoenas issued last month a “quintessential fishing expedition.” Gableman has subpoenaed the mayors of Wisconsin's five largest cities, the state's top elections official, an immigrant rights group, ES&S and Dominion Voting Systems as part of his ongoing probe ordered after President Joe Biden narrowly defeated Donald Trump in the battleground state.
Apparently, folks who don't want to get vaccinated against COVID feel they're being persecuted for what they consider a personal choice. Their thinking, I guess, is if others are safe from the coronavirus after getting jabbed, why does everyone else have to do so as well?

The recording might have remained secret forever if the dispatcher hadn't accused Sean Maddox weeks later of abducting and raping her on April 27—the day after his wife put the recording device in his car.
One of three Philippine election commissioners handling petitions to disqualify late dictator Ferdinand Marcos' son from the May presidential polls said Thursday that she voted in favor of the petitions and suspected there were efforts to nullify her vote against the leading candidate criticized by human rights groups. Commissioner Rowena Guanzon said she voted to uphold the petitions, which sought Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.'s disqualification from the race because of a previous tax conviction. An offense of “moral turpitude” is one of the grounds to bar a candidate from seeking and holding public office.
