New 2019 Federal Income Tax Brackets & Rates


We’re just about to enter 2018 tax filing season. But already the IRS has issued new federal income tax brackets for 2019.

Confused? That's completely understandable. But the 2019 information is necessary if you're to be prepared to file your taxes when 2019 ends. You may need to make adjustments in your withholding taxes, or your tax estimates if you're self- employed.

The big picture: If you're very familiar with the tax code as it was through 2017, the changes you'll see in 2019 may seem dramatic. But the real change is taking place in the 2018 tax year, and that's what you need to focus on right now. The main takeaway is to use this information to set your withholding tax, tax estimates, and tax planning in the right direction at the beginning of 2019.

Being Kind Makes You Feel Good. Here's the Science Behind it...


Everybody can appreciate acts of kindness. But when it comes to explaining why we do them, people often take one of two extreme positions. Some think kindness is something completely selfless that we do out of love and care, while others believe it is just a tool that we cunningly use to become more popular and reap the benefits.

But research shows that being kind to others can actually make us genuinely happy in a number of different ways. We know that deciding to be generous or cooperating with others activates an area of the brain called the striatum.

The feel-good emotion from helping has been termed “warm glow” and the activity we see in the striatum is the likely biological basis of that feeling.

Why it matters: Being kind is just the right thing to do and makes our world a better place to live...and it's Christmas time!
