DEPRECIATION STRIPPED FROM BILL
An extension of 100-percent
bonus depreciation was stripped from the bill to extend payroll tax
relief. The bill was approved by both houses last week and is now ready
for the president's signature. It's a derivative of the same legislation
that caused a major political crisis before Christmas as the polarized
Congress finally agreed to a short-term extension of the tax cut and put
off consideration of the entire bill for two months. In its original
form, 100-percent bonus depreciation for business purchases was extended
for another year but the bill that was finally approved does not contain
that language. More...

UNITE AGAINST EU CARBON TAX
Government representatives from
at least 26 countries are meeting in Moscow to discuss their opposition
to the European Union's controversial aviation carbon tax. The group,
which includes the U.S., China and Russia, says the carbon tax is really
a trade barrier disguised as an environmental incentive and many,
including the U.S., have passed legislation against participating in the
scheme. But the EU says its plan, which sees airlines pay escalating
taxes for going over diminishing allotments of emissions over the next
eight years, is a necessary part of the global effort to fight climate
change. Those opposed say Europe is welcome to carry that torch but
airlines flying to and from European destinations shouldn't be subject
to the tax. There are now signs the issue could blow up into a trade

AND RUSSIA LAUNCH GA VENTURE

HOSTS A PRESIDENTIAL VISIT
Companies like Boeing that create
jobs in the U.S. instead of shipping them overseas should be rewarded
with tax breaks, President Obama said during a visit to the manufacturer
in Everett, Wash., on Friday. Boeing has put "thousands of folks to work
all over the country," Obama said. "We want to see more of this. We need
to make it as easy as we can for our companies to create more jobs in
America. And that starts with our tax code." He said he also wants to
make it easier for companies like Boeing to export their products. Obama
filmed his weekly address from the plant, with airplanes under
construction in the background. More...
