The historical evidence is clear, whenever a government respects its citizens with fair and honest tax laws and burdens, the leaders of that government are celebrated. Whenever those leaders become abusive of that power, they are removed from office, either peaceably or otherwise. Which makes the recent actions of the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) disturbing. Since the inception of our current income tax system, it has been voluntary in the sense that you fill out your own tax forms, calculate the tax you owe, and then send it in. If the government doesn't agree with you they can dispute it through the audit process.

For most small business owners, the first quarter of a new year is usually the toughest. This is because there are important tax obligations in the first few months and this part of the year usually produces lower sales, resulting in weak cash flow. The dreaded income tax filing to the Internal Revenue Service and the California Franchise Tax Board will be due by April 15, as well as estimated income taxes payments for 2008. So, it’s best to get started early. Gather your tax records, receipts, and check register.

President Obama declared the neighborhoods affected by the Station fire and subsequent debris flows a disaster area on Monday, paving the way for federal assistance with clean up efforts. The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced Monday a federal disaster declaration for neighborhoods in the Station fire burn area that have been impacted by recent debris flows. The declaration makes city, county and state agencies eligible for reimbursement for up to 75% of the costs incurred during mitigation and cleanup efforts that started on Jan. 17. Damage assessments identified $59.1 million in eligible reimbursements from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and another $33.3 million in reimbursements through the Federal Highway Administration, according to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office.

Dear SCORE: I am a free-lance art designer and conduct most of my business from home. I am on the phone and Internet all day. My neighbor, who is real estate agent, says I should be taking a tax deduction for a home office. How do I go about it? Please don't use my real name, as I don't want to attract attention from the IRS.

Letters to the Editor No Chickens I have read with great alarm that the planning board will be allowing every residence in La Cañada to have chickens. Up until this point, chickens and roosters have been banned in La Cañada. If the ordinance passes, the city will be harmed in a myriad of ways. Property values will decline because chickens create excessive noise and smell. There was a flock of chickens in a yard adjacent to my residence recently and I can assure readers that even one chicken will create an intolerable presence in our community.
