Protect Your Wealth From the IRS, The Tax Window of Opportunity / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research writes: The biggest danger to your wealth isn’t a bubble in China or Europe – it’s the IRS. Since 1987, top earners have been taxed between 28 percent and 39.6 percent, a relatively low range compared to the 50-percent-and-above rates for most of the century. However, with enormous annual deficits and Social Security lurking around the corner like a mugger, the future promises a return to old tax norms.

Best Cash ISA Savings Account as April 5th 2010 Tax Year Deadline Looms / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirstly, some great news in Labour's last Budget for ISA savers and investors, in that the ISA allowances will now rise in line with inflation which starts with the new total allowance of £10,200 from 6th of April 2010 for all ISA savers that basically makes up for not having indexed the original allowance of £7,200 for the past 10 years. For cash ISA savers this means £5,100 will rise annually inline with the RPI inflation index from April 2011 which will make significant difference over the long run i.e. at an average inflation rate of 3% the total annual ISA of £10,200 in 10 years time will stand at £13,708, with a total additional allowance of £18,440 (£9,220 cash) so a significant difference and an even greater potential for cash ISA's to be used as a relatively risk free pensions savings vehicle without all of the tricks, fees, charges and risks built into the existing stake-holder and personal pension plans that ensure pension investors don't get anything like the returns they are promised.
