Stimulus Package Becomes Law

Today, President Obama signed the newest stimulus package into law. The result is that we have a host of new tax laws (or at least modifications to the existing tax law). Over the next several weeks I will be discussing some of the provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009.

Hopefully, together with the balance of the stimulus package spending, these new tax provisions will help put the economy back on track.

President Abraham Lincoln.

Not all states officially honor Abraham Lincoln's birthday.  In fact, many people simply lump President Lincoln's birthday together with that of George Washington and President's Day.  I believe, however, that the man who kept our great nation together as one deserves recognition of his own.  Happy Birthday President Lincoln!
