Taxless Thursday

1a - Copy

Devils of a feather steal together.

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close advisor Jared Kushner likely paid zero dollars in federal income taxes between 2009 and 2016, new documents obtained by the New York Times reveal.

Kushner used a “common tax-minimizing maneuver,” Times reporters Jesse Drucker and Emily Flitter wrote, to make it look like his company was losing money year after year, despite his net worth increasing by a multiple of five (to $324 million) in the same period of time.

Kushner Companies’ losses, however, were “only on paper” and were “driven by depreciation, a tax benefit that lets real estate investors deduct a portion of the cost of their buildings from their taxable income every year,” the Times said.

    Yup…making American great again.

    For the first time in 119 years, the Washington State Fair has installed metal detectors and mandatory bag checks to secure the Puyallup fairgrounds.

    Stacy Van Horne, a spokesperson for the Washington State Fair, said guest safety is at the forefront of fair officials’ minds. The fairgrounds will have more police officers than ever before.

    “We want them to have a good time, but safety is the number one priority,” Van Horne said. “It’s adding a layer that helps our guests feel safer.”

    There will be random metal detector checks, and security will have wands to quickly scan fairgoers. All bags will be searched, Van Horne said.

    The Washington State Fair is the sixth largest in the nation, drawing about 1 million people over 20 days.

    Two police cars in the alley near a new neighbor with an open door. Drizzle was not predicted. A speedy 14 minutes to the north door of the Hillside Cafe.
