North Carolina provided guidance on IRC §965 income reporting for corporate and individual income taxpayers. The guidance provides details on how to report the income on 2017 North Carolina:C corporation tax returns (Form CD-405);S corporation tax returns (Form CD-401S);partnership income tax returns (Form D-403);estate and trust income tax returns (Form D-407); and individual income tax returns (Form D-400).What Is IRC §965 Income?The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) enacted IRC §965. It requires taxpayers to include untaxed foreign earnings and profits (E&P) from post-1986 tax years in their Subpart F income. It also allows a deduction for part of the earnings that reduces the tax rate.Taxpayers must report the entire amount of IRC §965 on their 2017 federal income tax return. A taxpayer can elect to pay tax on the income in installments over several years.What if a Taxpayer Already Filed a 2017 Return?Taxpayers that already filed a 2017 North Carolina income tax return and owe tax on IRC §965 income must file an amended return. A taxpayer can avoid penalties by paying the tax with the amended return.Interest accrues on any unpaid tax. A taxpayer can request a waiver of penalties.Can Taxpayers Make Installment Payments?The election to pay in installments does not apply to North Carolina taxpayers. Taxpayers must pay North Carolina tax on IRC §965 income when they file their tax return.Taxpayers who owe North Carolina income tax can request a monthly installment agreement. But, interest continues to accrue on any unpaid tax until paid in full.IRC Section 965 Repatriation Guidance, North Carolina Department of Revenue, August 21, 2018, ¶202-803Login to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber?

SNAPPED: Arsenal boss Emery calls for ‘respect’ after Blackpool bus protestby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery shrugged off a Blackpool protest before their FA Cup win at Bloomfield Road.The day began with a Blackpool protester sitting on top of their bus.A large number of Blackpool fans have been trying to force Owen Oyston to sell the club for several years, to no avail, and their most high-profile match of the season offered an opportunity to draw wider attention.The protester, who came down after 40 minutes, was arrested on suspicion of an offence under the Trade Union Act and remained in police custody at kick-off. The incident did not delay the match.Emery remarked afterwards, “No change for us but we know there were some problems here with the club’s supporters and the club, but from us there is respect, respect to them, to the club, to the supporters and to the team. We prepared for the match with this respect also for this competition. I think that the 90 minutes against a competitive team also, I think we can watch a big match I think for them and for us.”I cannot say a lot for this situation. Only respect and I want to find a solution for the problem they have, the supporters of the team and the club here.”Blackpool fans currently stopping the Arsenal team bus from leaving their hotel to get to Bloomfield Road for this evenings FA Cup tie #protestspic.twitter.com/GC330zeyKJ— Ged Mills (@GedMills) January 5, 2019 About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

He quickly grew up and occasionally pushes the limits. And then we are there to set those limits.“We all know that Jadon is an excellent player, but it’s not about the player.

Asian News International New DelhiSeptember 9, 2019UPDATED: September 9, 2019 18:05 IST Amarjit Singh said that in football it is all about those 90 minutes. (Twitter: Indian Football Team)HIGHLIGHTSIndia will play against Qatar in their second match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup QualifiersAmarjit Singh said that in football it is all about those 90 minutesSingh was ruled out of India’s clashes against Oman, and QatarAhead of India’s vital game against AFC Asian champions Qatar in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, midfielder Amarjit Singh on Monday said that in football ‘it is all about those 90 minutes.'”In football, it’s all about those 90 minutes. Nothing else matters. A year back, did anyone ever think that Qatar would be Asian champions? But they have overcome powerhouses like Japan, Australia, Iran, and the Korean Republic. That was quite unthinkable,” All India Football Federation (AIFF) quoted Singh, as saying.Nursing an elbow injury, Singh was ruled out of India’s clashes against Oman, and Qatar. Now it’s a race against time for him to get ready for India’s match against Bangladesh on October 15. He is currently under rehabilitation for 6-8 weeks.”So, there’s no reason to believe we can’t. I understand Qatar are labeled as ‘Spain of Asia,’ and that too for a reason. They are a very good team. But on the field, no history matters. It’s about fighting face to face, for the ball, and with the ball,” Singh said.”We need to be mentally strong, and not get overawed playing them at their home. I repeat, it isn’t easy, but it isn’t impossible either,” he added.It’s this attitude of Amarjit that was the hallmark of the India U17 World Cup squad, the Indian Arrows, and the India U19 National Team at present.Even skipper Sunil Chhetri is aware of it. “Amarjit is a livewire. He is somebody who is so honest. If you tell him that you need to punch the wall for three hours, three hours later, when you come back you will still see him punching it. He has been a standout performer in the last 3-4 games for us. I really hope he recovers soon,” Chhetri said.advertisementIndia will play against Qatar in their second match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha on September 10.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Mumbai: Ace Indian javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra’s participation in the World Championships in Doha, slated to be held in September this year, remains uncertain as the athlete has undergone an elbow surgery which is likely to take three to four months for complete recovery. Moreover, the 21-year-old, who won a gold at the Commonwealth Games as well as the Asian Games last year, will also have to miss a major part of the international season. According to reports, the surgery on his throwing right hand was done to remove bone fragments from his elbow joint.

CAR’s Independent Electoral Commission last week announced that Mr. Bozize took 66 per cent of the vote in the 23 January election, which opposition candidates said was riddled with irregularities and intimidation.The UN has not had an election observer role, but continues to follow the process closely through its peacebuilding mission, known as BINUCA, which has coordinated support of the international community for the elections through the electoral steering committee. Since the announcement of the provisional election results, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative in CAR, Sahle-Work Zewde, has been encouraging authorities “to address allegations of irregularities in a transparent manner,” UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York.Ms. Zewde has also been encouraging candidates with grievances to follow the established legal procedures for lodging appeals, and for the Electoral Commission to communicate on the decisions regarding the polling stations. The UN is also calling on the Constitutional Court to play its role fully and impartially as defined in the Constitution, added Mr. Nesirky.Ahead of the polls, the Secretary-General had voiced the hope that the delayed elections will help lay the foundation for stability and development in a country that has seen significant ethnic conflict in its north, an overflow of violence from neighbouring Chad and Sudan’s war-torn Darfur region, and attacks in the east from the brutal rebel Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). 8 February 2011The United Nations is encouraging electoral authorities in the Central Africa Republic (CAR) to address alleged irregularities in last month’s presidential poll, which reportedly gave President Francois Bozize a second term but has left opposition candidates in an uproar over fraud.
TORONTO — Sears Canada Inc. said Wednesday its fourth-quarter revenue was down 17.7% from a year earlier to $972.5 million.The national retailer said the decline was primarily due to store closures and a 9.1% decline in same-store sales.It also had a net loss of $123.6 million or $1.21 per share, which included a writedown on the value of improvements made at its stores.After adjustments in both years, Sears lost $28.8 million in the three months ended Jan. 31 compared with a year-earlier profit of $18 million.Sears Canada bused fired Target workers to its headquarters last week to talk jobs: ‘We care about you’Sears Canada names acting CEO-president Ronald Boire to top management jobFor the full year, Sears Canada had a $338.8 million net loss, or $3.22 per share in 2014.That compared with a 2013 net profit of $446.5 million, or $4.38 per share, which included gains from the early termination of leases on some of its major Sears stores, real estate sales and other usual items.
TORONTO — Canada’s residential real estate market saw strong, but slowing year-over-year price growth in the fourth quarter of 2017, according to a report by Royal LePage.The real estate company said that based on data in 53 markets, the price of a home in Canada increased 10.8 per cent year-over-year to $626,042 in the quarter.Broken down by housing type, Royal LePage said the median price of a two-storey home rose 11.1 per cent year-over-year to $741,924, and the median price of a bungalow climbed 7.1 per cent to $522,963.But the company said in its report released Wednesday that the median price of a condo grew faster than any other housing type studied, rising 14.3 per cent to $420,823 on a year-over-year basis due to gains in many of the largest markets.In the Greater Toronto Area, the median price of a condo grew 19.5 per cent year-over-year to $476,421, while in the City of Toronto, the cost of a condo rose 19.6 per cent to $515,578.In Greater Vancouver, condominiums followed a similar pattern during the quarter, rising 20.2 per cent to $651,885, while the median price of a condo unit in the City of Vancouver rose 18.7 per cent to $775,806.In a separate report that examined luxury home sales, Sotheby’s International Realty said sales in the Greater Toronto Area of homes over $1 million in 2017 climbed five per cent compared with a year earlier, boosted by condo sales. Sales of condos over $1 million in Canada’s largest city climbed 59 per cent compared with 2016, while sales of those over $4 million rose 82 per cent.Sotheby’s CEO Brad Henderson said the condo market’s strength is persisting because there’s a “scarce” number of affordable, family homes in the city and surrounding regions, and increasing numbers of empty-nesters looking to move closer to their kids downtown.“The condo market will continue to be a strong and resilient class of real estate,” Henderson said.“It is a much more affordable opportunity, even in the luxury level, and there is considerable demand.”Calgary saw overall home sales over $1 million increase 11 per cent year-over-year, while sales in the $1 million-plus real estate market increased 20 per cent in Montreal.Meanwhile, Sotheby’s said sales of homes over $1 million in Vancouver fell five per cent compared with 2016, while those over $4 million fell by 33 per cent.Royal LePage said the GTA showed signs of slowing as 2017 drew to a close, notably in the single-family detached segment.In the fourth quarter, the median price of a two-storey home and bungalow in Toronto and surrounding area fell by 2.0 and 2.4 per cent respectively on a quarter-over-quarter basis.The company says condos were the only segment to appreciate on a quarter-over-quarter basis among all housing types, rising 1.1 per cent in the final three months of the year.At the same time, the price of two-storey homes and bungalows fell 0.3 and 0.2 per cent quarter-over-quarter, respectively.“To prospective homeowners in our largest cities, condominiums represent the last bastion of affordability,” said Royal LePage president and CEO Phil Soper.“This is especially true for first-time buyers whose purchasing power has been reduced by tightening mortgage regulations.”

Standing at 6-foot-7, crushing a 135 mph serve and orchestrating a rise to the No. 1 rank in collegiate men’s tennis all while studying consumer and family financial services, you might say Peter Kobelt is a man of numbers. Kobelt, a redshirt junior, seems to be quickly rising to the occasion when it comes to balancing his roles leading the Ohio State men’s tennis squad, completing his college degree and setting his sights on a professional tennis career. It was not long after moving with his family to the Columbus suburb of New Albany in 1992 that Kobelt began to craft his tennis swing. Growing up, Kobelt said he was encouraged to try a variety of sports, but he ultimately stuck with tennis. “I have to give my dad credit for (my tennis career). He’s been in the tennis business for 25 or 30 years now. He was a state champion in Wisconsin in doubles … he kind of molded me into a tennis player,” Kobelt said. During high school, Kobelt was a two-sport athlete, excelling on the varsity basketball and tennis teams. He said the time split between the two sports caused his junior tennis ranking to suffer. “I was kind of under the radar because I only played six months of tennis a year because of basketball, so a lot of schools didn’t really know about me,” Kobelt said. When OSU coach Ty Tucker began recruiting, Kobelt was an asset that he said he could not ignore. “The first thing you’re going to say is that the guy is 6-foot-7. You know that he’s going to have the ability to hold serve … he was the kind of guy you thought you could bring in for a year, redshirt, develop and he could get to one of the top 15, 20 players in college tennis,” Tucker said. After a freshman season spent developing his skills, Kobelt spent the next two seasons becoming a major Buckeye contributor. By the end of his redshirt sophomore season, Kobelt had captured a pair of regional doubles championships and first team all-Big Ten honors. Such success has landed him a No. 1 national rank in his redshirt junior season. The rank, Kobelt said, is an opportunity to recognize team success. “All my teammates helped me get there, so I view it as a group effort. At the end of the day, it’s really just a number. Tennis is a game of numbers, and I don’t like that number. Every day, we just try to get better,” Kobelt said. That concept is noticed by fellow members of OSU’s squad, said senior teammate Connor Smith. “(Peter and I) have lived together ever since I met him, and he’s a good guy and a good teammate, too … (Peter) is good to rely on sometimes to pump (the energy) up,” Smith said. “Since (Peter and I) are older, we kind of rely on each other more. It’s a good give-and-take.” Tucker said the progress made in Kobelt’s game since coming to OSU is what has garnered the respect of his coaches and teammates. “The guys see a guy that was ranked 65 in the country for 18-year-olds and now as a junior is ranked No. 1 in college … it shows that if you put that type of work in, you can get to some good things,” Tucker said. Now, with only 13 credit hours remaining before being able to graduate with his degree, Kobelt is beginning to map out his plans to play tennis professionally. “I put a lot of time and effort into tennis, and I feel like it would be a mistake to just give it all up right away. I’ve always wanted to see the world,” Kobelt said. “It would be really neat to do something I loved and to see the world.” Professional aspirations aside, Kobelt said he couldn’t be more satisfied with playing high-level tennis for the school he calls his “first love.” “It’s an honor and a privilege to play for the Buckeyes,” he said. “I probably really don’t know how special it is right now, but looking back later in life, I’ll be truly grateful I had this opportunity.”
Man Completes ‘World’s Longest’ Journey By EVNissan’s Recycled EV Batteries Power ‘Off-Grid’ Adventures The first all-electric Porsche, the Mission E, is set to hit the road in two years.Chairman Oliver Blume told CAR magazine that the sports car will go on sale by the end of 2019, priced “like [the] entry-level Panamera,” which starts at $85,000.Following its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show, the 100 percent electrically powered vehicle was initially expected to launch “at the end of the decade.”The four-door coupe features an 800-volt drive system, more than 440 kW system power, and 310-plus miles driving range.Porsche claimed its Mission E can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in “under 3.5 seconds”—slower than the Tesla Model S P100D, which scored a record 2.28-second time earlier this year—and reach near-top-speeds of 124 mph in fewer than 12 seconds.A new rapid-charge battery booster takes fewer than 15 minutes to reach 80 percent, allowing for fast pit stops; Tesla’s Superchargers, meanwhile, take about 40 minutes to reach 80 percent.The quarter-hour recharge will be offered at launch, according to CAR.“It will be enough for a [250 mile] range on an 80 percent charge,” Blume told the magazine.While Porsche remains quite tight-lipped about its upcoming production vehicle, the company boss confirmed that “the design is fixed,” and the final Mission E will look “very close to what you saw two years ago.”“It will be exciting but a bit different from the concept,” Blume added.This may be the luxury vehicle maker’s first electric car, but it won’t be its last: In 2015, Wolfgang Porsche, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG, suggested that with Mission E, “we are making a clear statement about the future of our brand.”“Even in a greatly changing motoring world, Porsche will maintain its front-row position with this fascinating sports car,” he said.Final pricing and specs will presumably be released closer to launch.

PewDiePie Pulls $50,000 Pledge to Anti-Hate Group After Fan BacklashPolice Arrest Dutch YouTubers for Trespassing Area 51 Site Fashion trends come and go, but nostalgia isn’t going anywhere. From old-school kicks to ’80s structured blazers, designers are culling inspiration from past styles and reimagining them for future generations.Versace is the latest fashion house to provide its own take on retro footwear, and this time it’s turning to Apple Computers to make the magic happen. Salehe Bembury, Versace’s head sneaker designer, posted a picture on Instagram of white sneakers with a rainbow logo strikingly similar to a famous tech company. With only a short caption of, “A wise man once said nothing at all,” these Apple Computer-inspired sneakers might be the next obsession of sneakerheads worldwide. It’s uncertain if this shoe will only serve as a design prototype or be mass produced in the near future. Regardless, people have already taken interest in these comfy sneakers, as retro-inspired fashion continues to dominate wardrobes. Versace might provide an update soon about this gem of a shoe, but until then, everyone will have to admire this throwback creation on social media.This isn’t the first Apple Computer-inspired sneaker either. In 2016, a size 9.5 pair of old-school Apple Computer kicks were found at a garage sale in Palo Alto, California, which is located close to Apple’s Silicon Valley offices. This lucky find was brought to Heritage Auctions, which gave them a starting bid price of $30,000. When news broke out about these valuable chunky kicks, people took up major interest in buying the shoe, but so far it hasn’t had any takers. These original Apple Computer sneakers are still for sale on Heritage Auctions’ website.Apple Computer Sneakers, circa early 1990s. (Photo Credit: Heritage Auctions)Bembury’s designs though represent a bigger picture on fashion today. There isn’t one way to influence what people wear, considering that nerd culture, streetwear, and history are merging together for the ultimate sneaker look. While steakerheads wait for the next big product, the industry will continue to blur the lines with footwear innovation.More on Geek.com:10 Best Geeky Sneakers of 20187 Sneakers Your Favorite Superhero Would WearThese Cool Eco-Brands Are Reimagining How We Get Dressed Stay on target

By JEFF MARTIN, The Associated PressA White Georgia police officer accused of fatally shooting a Black man had only been on the job a year and a half. But during that time, he’d already earned one suspension for using his personal vehicle in a high-speed chase and — after a Black resident complained to the police — parked outside his house, causing the resident to say he feared for his life.Kingsland Police Officer Zechariah Presley surrendered June 27 after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation obtained a warrant for his arrest on the charge of manslaughter. The killing has enraged family and friends of the dead man — Anthony Marcel Green — in the small town of Kingsland near the border with Florida where the shooting occurred.This undated photo provided by the Kingsland Police Department shows Officer Zechariah Presley. Presley was in jail on Thursday, June 28, 2018, charged with voluntary manslaughter and violating his oath of office, after state investigators said he fatally shot a black man who was running away from him on June 21. (Kingsland Police Department via AP)Green’s family demanded justice June 28, with one of their lawyers referring to the shooting as one of many “senseless killings of Black men by police.”Presley’s lawyer, Adrienne Browning, said her client is looking forward to his day in court and declined further comment.The shooting unfolded June 21, when Presley was following a vehicle that stopped at an intersection and the driver and passenger ran, according to a statement from the investigative bureau. Presley pursued the driver, shouting over police radios: “Got one running! Got two running!”What happened next was recorded on Presley’s body camera but has not been released.Images from the camera were enhanced and are still being reviewed by the bureau, along with dashcam footage, GBI Special Agent Stacy Carson said. She said for that reason, neither was being made public.Presley, 26, caught up with Green, 33, making physical contact, but Green again fled, “at which time Presley fired multiple shots resulting in the death of Green,” the bureau statement said.Green’s family attorney, Reginald Greene, released a statement saying the family is encouraged by Presley’s arrest but still waiting for answers.“Tony Green was gunned down in cold blood by Officer Presley,” Greene said in a statement. “We intend to remain vigilant until he is brought to justice and the family is able to get answers as to why this happened in the first place. The senseless killings of Black men by police must stop.”Presley’s first appearance in court is scheduled for 2 p.m. June 29 in Camden County.Kingsland Police Chief Daryl G. Griffis recommended firing Presley, and Kingsland City Manager Lee Spell agreed, news outlets reported.The department also released Presley’s personnel file, which shows he was hired last year despite admitting that he had physically fought with his wife, had bought or sold marijuana, repeatedly shouted at people, was involved in at least two crashes and had been arrested for reckless driving and speeding, according to handwritten answers he gave when he applied for a job with the department.After joining the department, he ran into trouble again.In the car chase, Presley was suspended for a day without pay and warned about his “poor decision making” after he called in a reckless driver while off-duty near a Dunkin Donuts in January, then sped off in pursuit in his private car at more than 100 mph (160 kph). His sergeant then reached him by phone and made him stop.As for Green, news outlets reported that he had a traffic ticket in March for a suspended license and a 2016 misdemeanor arrest.“He always kept a big smile on his face,” said his pastor, The Rev. Mack De’Von Knight of Refreshing Oasis Church. “He found a joke out of everything — he was always making you laugh.”Green was one of the managers at a fast-food restaurant in Kingsland, Greene said. He had three children who ranged in age from 13 to a young son who was 3 or 4, Knight said.A funeral service is planned for June 30 at Refreshing Oasis Church, Knight said.The shooting comes after several high-profile cases of White law officers killing Black men in recent years.

Stay on target Online is a strange and terrifying place. It’s enabled us to connect with one another, advance the causes of science and culture, and unite the world with a glowing net of data. It’s also enabled people with very… particular interests to find each other. In this weekly series, we’ll be dipping into the Internet Gutter – the strange subcultures and weird worlds lurking in the dark pockets of the World Wide Web.Masturbation GamingPeople don’t like to admit it, but pornography was in many ways the killer app for the Internet. Early adult business made serious cash, and the demographic surveys conducted by Pornhub get more respondents than Gallup polls. A lot of people are using this thing to get their rocks off, and more power to them.You know what the other big driver of Internet growth was? Games. So it was only a matter of time before the two things became one. We’re not talking about your run-of-the-mill erotic games (although you might enjoy Geek’s massive history of them). No, this is a new and deeply weird development – games you play by masturbating.This one’s weird and pretty salty, so buckle up. We’re about to dive into the Internet Gutter, and you might get pregnant.Meat To The BeatThe art of the compilation has been a thing in pornography ever since the first enterprising pervert hooked up two VCRs and clipped together his favorite scenes on a tape. Free smut sites are full of aggregations of stars, positions, even blooper reels. It’s easier than ever to mix and recontextualize the material however you want.And then there’s Cock Hero, which transforms self-pleasure into a video game. Over a compilation of explicit clips, the creators layer a thumping techno beat and on-screen graphics like the kind you’d see in the Guitar Hero games, only with only one control: honk your pud. Players are expected to stroke to the beat provided and refrain from climaxing until the end of the video.This kind of thing just reinforces the cultural (and pornographic) cliche that sex is over when a man pops his seed, but there’s not much we can do about that. These videos are wildly popular – there are hundreds of them on aggregator sites like PornHub, with millions of views. We’re not going to link to any of this stuff because our Google rank is very precious and the boss would get mad if we wrecked it for an article.Leveling UpThe first Cock Hero video was made in 2009, and the genre hasn’t changed much in the intervening eight years. This primitive gameplay might be good enough for casuals, but what about hardcore (no pun intended) gamers? Don’t they want something a little more complex and thought-provoking?As it turns out, they do, and that’s where we get into the truly bizarre world of masturbation-powered role-playing. Meet the EGURS system. That stands for the Erosphere Games Universal Rules System… system. Developed by a robust forum of (theoretically any gender but assuredly male) masturbators, it adds role-playing elements to the Cock Hero formula, creating videos with multiple endings, equipment, character leveling and more.You can get a handle on the system from this PDF, but here are the basics: the videos proceed according to the usual formula, but when you climax you’re rewarded with “Virtue Points” depending on how long you held out. You can then spend those during future sessions on a variety of abilities, represented as bootleg Magic cards.Needless to say, this is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen. The idea of gamifying your masturbation sessions with collectible cards is so purely Internet Gutter that I almost can’t believe it’s real, but it is. It gets weirder, too – if you “release” too early, the game doles out punishments upon you, like the one below commanding you to not touch yourself for three days and then come back and watch the same damn video again.Game OverWhat could be next for this bizarre subculture? We’d expect the rules to just get more complicated. Maybe they’ll create some kind of massively multiplayer version to pit players against each other, or versions you can play with a partner on the scene. The new boom in VR porn will probably see a Cock Hero equivalent sooner or later as well.Who would have thought that the simple act of pounding your pud could become something so ridiculous? The hundreds of videos produced show that there’s definitely a market for this stuff. People have even made tutorials for newbies to make their own, as well as a software tool to easily add beats over videos.Let’s close with the comments of one happy customer who is using the EGURS system to great effect.Can’t argue with that level of praise. Which girl is the sled, though? Internet Gutter: Crisis ActorsInternet Gutter: Mukbang
