Effective January 1 - If You Owe Taxes Your Passport May Be Revoked

A new law set to go into effect in January would deny or revoke passports for taxpayers who owe the U.S. government more than $50,000, according to the Wall Street Journal. It is part of a highway-funding bill, H.R. 22, that Congress is expected to pass it in early December. According to estimates by the Joint Committee on Taxation, the measure is expected to raise $398 million over 10 years. It is unclear how many Americans abroad would be affected, but the Journal noted that a report issued in September by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, or Tigta, a watchdog agency, found that the IRS sent 855,000 notices to U.S. citizens abroad in 2014. Although it sounds like a p

Changing What Is No Longer In Season

My favorite part of any holiday season is decorating, but I cannot say that I get much joy when it is time to take things down and put them away. On a rare occasion, I have considered (not seriously, of course) leaving things up until the holiday comes back around, but then it is an eyesore and bound to provoke my homeowner's association from calling an emergency meeting to create yet another rule. However, let's be honest, you cannot tell me that you have not enjoyed a laugh or two when you drive by a place and still see decorations leftover from past years. I figure it is because the person loved the holiday so much they want to relive magical moments indefinitely or, maybe, it is simply t

Is Your Workplace a Street Fair Celebration?

I recently ran across some photos that a retired employee shared with me last year that she had taken on a tour of Facebook's corporate office while visiting her son in California. Although I was disappointed there were no pictures or stories to tell of the infamous nap pods as depicted in the 2013 American comedy film, The Internship, one photo, in particular, caught my attention, one that the employee described as a ‘street fair.' Initially her explanation seemed odd, after all, a street fair is defined as something that celebrates the character of a neighborhood, where goods are sold and information conveyed. But wait, her explanation was an exact match to what was happening in the phot

New Crisis in the Work-Life Balance Concept

As we continue to hear about the families and friends being torn apart by the deceptive and manipulative seductions of Islamic State, it has become all too apparent that we are in the midst of a crisis that changes everything we as employers know about the work environment and work-life balance. The decisions that we make and actions we take to ensure our employees maintain healthy balance between work and life are no longer based on our knowledge of the collective lifestyle choices. There are no best practices for this new threat, and the statistical data has only begun to hit charts. We are forced to rethink how we behave to a growing crisis that, even as a country, we have yet to unders
