Large Donation Proceeds Bergen County Contract

Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco

by Jim Arakelian

Midland Park NJ, Nothing to see here folks. One-party rule is killing us with corrupt pay to play. According to the “The Record” Two days before Bergen County’s freeholders awarded a $5 million contract to a Midland Park contractor to restore the Teaneck Creek, records show that a second company owned by the contractor’s brother gave County Executive Jim Tedesco’s reelection campaign a $2,500.

The county says there is no connection between the donation and the contract and that the county does not track political contributions. Bergen County Jim Tedesco, a Democrat, is up for reelection next in 2022

Reader says, “The 9/11 terrorists were able to live in neighborhoods and hatch their dangerous plots because they knew neighbors ignore neighbors”

"Our Gang" aka The Little Rascals"

“The fact that neighbors are no longer neighborly, that we cannot knock on a neighbor’s door; that we do not know our neighbors is very different from many years ago when neighborhoods were friendly; times have indeed changed. The situation now is dangerous. The 9/11 terrorists were able to live in neighborhoods and hatch their dangerous plots because they knew neighbors ignore neighbors.

Also, neighbors not knowing and being unfriendly to neighbors, increases social isolation; very dangerous because teens more likely to take drugs and alcohol when they alienated, and they will feel alienated in an unfriendly neighborhood.

The above comment about hate is what America does not need. Again it stems from alienation. The comment is an example of social media bullying”

5 Tips on How to Handle a Commercial Building

In today’s highly-competitive market, how you handle a commercial property is not only essential for maintaining your current business, but it’s also key to generating new revenue.

If you’re looking for tips to effectively manage your commercial property, you came to the right place!

1- Insure Your Building

With the growing popularity of commercial buildings across the world, especially around heavily populated areas like New Jersey, insurance coverage is now more important than ever.

New Jersey Society of CPAs Reminds Taxpayers of New IRS Guidance on Cryptocurrency

Provides Clarity but Questions Remain

ROSELAND NJ, The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) reminds taxpayers that the Internal Revenue Service’s newly released two-part guidance on the tax treatment of virtual currency — such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Libra — helps to clarify many issues relating to accounting, financial reporting and distribution. However, questions still remain over addressing noncompliance as well as whether or not the IRS will differentiate hard forks (blockchain nodes that no longer accept the newest version of the blockchain and diverge from the existing distributed ledger) from airdrops (means of distributing units of a cryptocurrency to the distributed ledger addresses of multiple taxpayers). Soft forks do not generate a taxable event due to the lack of new cryptocurrency creation.
