  • Private jet buyers can now write off full amnt of new plane's cost on their tax return, which applies to both new & pre-owned aircraft. Due to a policy change w/i Trump 2017 Tax Cuts that updated the US tax code to allow 100% bonus depreciation.

    • Awesome. Maybe we need our legislatures to allow us peasants to write off the cost of a new car...

              x 15 fillups (estimate) over the next 90 days? = $54. On $1200 spent ($4 avg x 15 fillups x 20 gal).

              (Or $150 if Maryland also does a fuel holiday in conjunction with the Federal relief.)

              Congratulations on the savings?





              Meanwhile... $10 Billion (now at the latest estimate) would be lost in this, and Biden is proposing that gets made up in a separate bill. Likely to be torpedoed by Republicans because "where are we going to fund it?" (Despite the government deficit being 1.6 Trillion less than it was this time last year...).

                          Part of the Harvard hockey scandal was kids cheating on an ethics course. To be fair, how could those athletes have known the kids they paid to write their papers and take their exams would cheat? They're the real victims, here.

                            • First it was baby formula. Then it was gas. Now it's airline flights.

                              Every business was handed massive amounts of money to ride out the pandemic and come back strong on the backside. Instead, these industries all pocketed their profits and said, not our fault we're coming up short now even though were essential products/services.
