Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Q: Where can I get information for this year about the “Free File” program available online through the Internal Revenue Service? — S.N., Tucson, Ariz. A: The IRS recently posted details on its Web site. Go to the site (www.irs.gov), and look for “Check Out Free File.” What’s Free File all about? Many companies are offering free Web-based federal income- tax preparation and electronicfiling services. More than five million people used Free File last year. This year, there’s a major change: The offers apply only to taxpayers with adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less. Last year, several big firms offered freebies with no income limits. Even so, an IRS spokeswoman says that about 93 million taxpayers are eligible this year for the free tax-preparation software and e-filing. That’s about 70% of all filers. This program stems from a pact last year between the IRS and the Free File Alliance, a coalition of private- sector tax-preparation software companies. Among the companies participating are some of the nation’s best-known software brands, but there are many others, too. Don’t assume all the offers are the same. They’re not. As the IRS points out, individual company offers may be limited to specific income levels, certain states or other factors. For instance, H&R Block’s TaxCut Online is available free only if you are 50 or younger with adjusted gross income of $50,000 or less. The IRS says it has discontinued telephone filing, known as “Telefile.” Officials say many people who used this service in the past may qualify for the new free-filing services.— HURRICANE VICTIMS can get help from a new IRS Publication. See Publication 4492, available on the IRS site. It offers helpful tips for taxpayers affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma. For example, it tells how to claim unreimbursed losses. It also explains new rules on charitable giving.last_img read more

His goal was to provide a view of “the Negro as a participant rather than as a lay figure in history.” The week-long tribute has evolved into a national four-week celebration of African-American history and achievement. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Six Flags CEO wants more parades, fireworks

first_img “If you have a theme park, about every two years, you have to put in a new ride. You have to find land,” he said. “Parades are a lot easier to tweak. Just change the light bulbs and the costumes.” Under Shapiro, the company also moved headquarters from Oklahoma City to New York, and is selling two of its Oklahoma theme parks to pay down debt. Also, it has bolstered park cleanup and better enforced a smoking ban. To carry out the plan, the company plans to hire more personnel, including 300 new seasonal and full-time positions for Magic Mountain’s staff of 2,200. The park has about 3 million visitors a year. Shapiro said the initiatives are intended to strengthen the Six Flags brand as a family entertainment destination. “If you’re 10 years old, you can’t get on Tatsu – you’re not tall enough,” he said, referring to Magic Mountain’s new coaster slated to open in April. “So what are you doing to keep them here?” Kyser agreed the focus on families could help the park grow. “You still have the thrill rides,” he said. “But if you can extend your coverage to a broader part of the market, you can grow your business. “For a lot of families, going down to either Knott’s Berry Farm or Disneyland, it may be a little daunting,” he said, referring to traffic. “You’re carving off a family attraction in and of its own in a major metropolitan area. “The market will vote and the market may like this. Maybe they can get their floats made by the Acme Company.” “ESPN was about brand building,” Shapiro said. “That’s what we’re going to do with Six Flags. There’s no telling what area the brand can go into if it is strong.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VALENCIA – For Six Flags chief executive officer Mark Shapiro, the future of the theme park giant known for teenage thrill rides lies in parades, fireworks and other attractions to offer well-rounded family experience. It almost sounds like a visit to a certain Anaheim theme park. “We’re ramping up our Main Street USA strategy,” Shapiro said Tuesday during a visit to Six Flags California Magic Mountain, a park now building its 17th roller coaster. “At the same time, we’re not abandoning our teenage roots. … (but) it’s going to be more oriented for the family this year.” A former ESPN programming executive, Shapiro, 35, was placed in Six Flags Inc.’s top job in December. He is in the midst of touring the 45-year-old company’s theme park properties he’s charged to revitalize.

Six Flags has been struggling in recent years in the competition for entertainment dollars while saddled with some $2.1 billion in long-term debt – including years of capital and coaster investment. Shapiro was brought in after shareholders led by Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder ousted top management. “The industry has gotten a bit drunk on roller coasters,” Shapiro said. “You need to get a return on your investment.” That means a shift away from the mechanical thrill rides to lure more families. Daily parades and fireworks shows and a Chinese acrobat show are slated to join Magic Mountain’s repertoire of coasters and other attractions this year.

Making it pay to film L.A.

first_img “We’ve chronicled just how much of an economic impact this industry has, not just on the city and the county but on the state,” the mayor said. “It is without question a job creator in this state and we’ve got to do as much as we can to keep those jobs here.” Steve Caplan, executive vice president of the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, said these steps can make a significant difference. “For the nuts and bolts of production, making sure we get permits in a timely way, that we’re able to shoot in certain communities and that we are able to work with the neighborhoods is hugely important because if we don’t have that, we’re not filming here,” Caplan said. But most agree that what would be more crucial to stemming runaway production would be the passage of AB 777, proposed legislation that would be the first state tax incentive program for the film industry. The bill, which stalled in the Legislature last year, proposes credits of 12 percent of a film or television project’s budget, up to $3 million per project or TV episode. To qualify, at least 75 percent of the project must be shot in California. Similar incentives have led to significant gains in activity in New York in particular but many other states are upping the incentives ante as well. “It’s precisely what … has given us the belief and the understanding that California needs to step up as well,” Villaraigosa said. “You look at New Mexico, you look at North Carolina, you look at Louisiana, a number of these states are very aggressive at providing incentives for film production and entertainment industry jobs and we have to do the same thing.” The lukewarm reception in Sacramento has been attributed by many as reaction to a general feeling among legislators that the entertainment business is a rich industry that shouldn’t need any handouts. But Steve Dayan, former chairman of the FilmL.A. board of directors and a member of Teamsters Local 399, said that perception is inaccurate and unfair. “You could be out of work for months,” said Dayan, whose union members include studio drivers, location managers and casting directors. “We’re like gypsies, we go from show to show to show. One of my drivers, for example, could be working at Warner Bros. today, Fox tomorrow, Disney the next day. They are daily employees literally, working for a day at a time. A lot of people think that people that work in the film industry are wealthy. I can tell you for a fact that some of my members are making $35,000 to $40,000.” Dayan said every time a producer drafts a budget, the tax breaks and other incentives from competing states and countries is often what makes the difference in where they decide to film and that each decision is costly for the work force. “A major motion picture with a $100 million budget, that’s employing hundreds if not thousands of people,” he said. “Those kinds of jobs are good middle-class jobs with pension and health benefits. We should be trying to retain those and we should try to find ways to target those incentives so that they reach the proper genres of film, movies of the week, commercial production and features as well.” Greg Hernandez, (818) 713-3758 greg.hernandez@dailynews.com!dtpost 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The nonprofit company responsible for issuing on-location film permits, which shed the scandal-tinged name Entertainment Industry Development Corp., held a splashy grand opening this week to tout its new name, new leadership and new home at downtown’s Los Angeles Center Studios. The makeover occurs as the Los Angeles region faces more competition for film and television production than ever before from other states and such film-friendly countries as Canada, New Zealand and Australia. “We can no longer think that these jobs are just going to stay here because this is Hollywood and we have the greatest climate and so many of the industry professionals work and live here,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said at the FilmL.A. reception Wednesday night. “We’ve got to be aggressive at trying to keep them here.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant It seems that FilmL.A. will now be able to focus on just that. The old EIDC became embroiled in controversy after its former president, Cody Cluff, was put on three years’ probation in 2004 in connection with embezzling public funds. Steve MacDonald, named president after the scandal, is stressing a commitment to using various tools to prevent further erosion of the second-largest employment sector in Los Angeles County, one that generates 250,000 direct jobs and more than $30 billion a year in revenue for the local economy. MacDonald said FilmL.A., which moved from an office building in Hollywood in December, is now closer to the city’s busiest production locations and has implemented a new system to help streamline the permit process. “We’ve completely revamped our notification system to help the needs and concerns of the neighborhoods that host on-location production and we will continue to improve our processes and services for the industry,” MacDonald said. Villaraigosa said he is proposing that the city eliminate fees for filming on all city property and reducing the business tax for some entertainment-related businesses. He is also exploring the idea of an entertainment incentive zone where the city can make it easier to film and provide incentives in some parts of Los Angeles. last_img read more

Flowers planted in memory of slain pastor

first_imgSELMER, Tenn. – Members of the congregation planted flowers Saturday outside the Fourth Street Church of Christ as they waited for their minister’s wife to be brought home to face first-degree murder charges in the death of her husband. The gardening project and a spring cleanup had been planned weeks ago by Matthew Winkler, the 31-year-old minister who was shot to death at the parsonage he shared with his wife, Mary, and their three young children. “We’re doing this because Matthew wanted us to,” church member James Turner said as he dug a spade into the dark soil of a flower bed. “It keeps us busy,” said Jimmie Smith, a retired counselor. Police found Mary Winkler, 32, and her daughters late Thursday about 340 miles from home in Orange Beach, Ala., where she had rented a condo. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 She did not resist extradition, and Saturday afternoon McNairy County sheriff’s deputies brought her to jail in Selmer, a west Tennessee town about 80 miles east of Memphis. Mary Winkler said nothing and kept her head down as she was taken from an unmarked police car into the building. Police said she confessed to the killing and she was charged Friday with first-degree murder, a crime that requires premeditation. Authorities refused to disclose a motive. “Listen, the Mary we knew didn’t do this,” Anita Whirley said as she planted purple, yellow and red pansies. “She was a wonderful person. We just don’t understand.” Matthew Winkler was found dead in a bedroom at the couple’s home in Selmer after church members went looking for him because he did not appear for a service. The parsonage is about two miles from the church in a quiet, heavily wooded neighborhood. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agent John Mehr has said police know why she shot her husband, but he would not disclose the suspected motive except to say police did not believe it was infidelity. He would not comment on whether Mary Winkler had accused her husband of abuse. Court papers offered no hint of a motive. An Alabama judge released the Winkler children – Breanna, 1; Mary Alice, 6; and Patricia, 8 – to the custody of their paternal grandparents. Mary Winkler was at the custody hearing Friday in handcuffs. The family had moved to Selmer a year ago when Matthew Winkler was hired for his first job as the lead minister of a Church of Christ congregation. Church members described them as a devoted couple, good parents and good friends. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
