Should you be able to use the Child Tax Credit?

If you are in the midst of a divorce where children are involved, or you are unmarried and facing a child custody action, the tax implications of support and custody may not be forthright in your mind; but they should be. The costs of caring and raising a child are substantial. It is estimated that parents may spend more than $300,000 raising a child from birth to age 18. Because of this, the law requires biological parents to support their children financially.

If you think baseball contracts are outrageous, like Monopoly money being thrown at players, you wouldn’t find many people who disagree with you.

This week begins the free agency signing period, where star players and role players alike can take their services to different teams. While this will be the last free agency period before the salary cap changes after next season, there are still a number of story lines to be fulfilled as stars such as Dwyane Wade, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan and LeBron James test the market.
