Taxpayer Relief


Were you unable to meet your tax obligations
due to circumstances beyond your control? You may be able to ask the Canada Revenue
Agency to cancel or waive your penalties or interest. Meet Suzanne. Suzanne’s house caught on fire on April
20, which prevented her from filing her tax and benefit return on time. She was charged a late filing penalty. Suzanne prints form RC4288 to apply for taxpayer
relief, due to her unfortunate situation. When applying for relief, you must give the
facts and circumstances that explain your inability to meet your tax obligations. Your request should clearly outline what you
are asking to have cancelled or waived, and for what reason. In the case of a natural or human-made disaster,
such as the fire in Suzanne’s home, you must provide a copy of the insurance
and fire reports with your application. If you’re asking for relief from penalties
or interest, you must send your request within ten years of the tax year or fiscal period. For example, your request made in 2019 must
be related to a penalty for a tax year ending in 2009 or later or interest accrued in 2009
or later. Use the CRA’s electronic services to send
your application for relief as well as all supporting documents. If you’re considering sending a taxpayer
relief request, go to canada.ca/taxpayer-relief

Hurricane Matthew: Where’s the Relief?


Perhaps you’ve seen the headlines-
thousands of North Carolinians affected by Hurricane Matthew are still in need
of aid. The federal money is there. So why, two years later, have zero
projects been completed? Hurricane Matthew made landfall in North Carolina
on October 8th 2016. The impact of the storm on our state has been devastating.
In April of 2017, Governor Roy Cooper requested federal funds for relief, and
almost two years later most of the hurricane victims eligible for recovery
money are still waiting! Why are they still waiting? The process to determine
which company would execute the distribution of these funds from the
disaster recovery grant began in January of 2018. Initially the idea was for the
work to be distributed between three different companies, but a single company
by the name of Innovative Emergency Management was finally selected in June
of 2018. One would assume they were the most qualified company to bid for the
job based on experience and competency, but the standards used to select which
company would do the work appeared to focus less on objectively assessing each
company’s competency and more on tailoring it to favor one company in
particular. However, IEM was found to have racked up 443 performance complaints and
penalties related to the work they did in Louisiana alone! So why would the
Cooper administration select a company to execute such important work whose
track record or performance in other states has been seemingly abysmal at
best? Maybe, just maybe, the fact that IEM CEO Madhu Beriwal has given
thousands of dollars to Cooper for North Carolina had something to do with it?
According to a report from Follow the Money,
Beriwal has given over $93,000 to 18 different
politicians over nine years. And at least 16 of those were in states where Beriwal’s company conveniently obtained or is bidding to obtain major disaster
relief projects. So did governor Cooper accept donations in exchange for giving
a state contract to that donor’s company? Would he really jeopardized the hurricane
recovery to favor a company whose CEO is a big donor of his, despite
the fact that that company also has such a poor track record and hundreds of
complaints on file? The Director of Emergency Management has even admitted
that he could not provide an explanation as to why he would try to steer a
contract to a company that the evaluation committee found had not
adequately performed. This apparent conflict of interest might not need to
be raised if IEM was doing their job for the people of North Carolina. But
unfortunately, thanks to their incompetency, the Cooper administration
has missed deadline after deadline to get relief to North Carolinians in
urgent need. So what now? Well, just a couple of months away from the two-year
anniversary of Hurricane Matthew, there have been zero relief projects completed,
and there’s been zero transparency from the Cooper administration. All of this
inaction has prompted the Speaker of the House to reauthorize the special Select
Committee on Hurricane Relief to make sure the people of North Carolina get
what they need to recover. And let’s hope they get the help they deserve very soon!

budget friendly price tag. With its wide spectrum of quality products,

public safety departments, EverReady First Aid has one of the largest range of EMS products
in the industry. The EverReady First Aid First Responder Kit
is medium-sized, has two external pockets, and more than 40 EMS items stocked inside. This kit comes well-compartmentalized with
elastic loops for holding smaller items while the rubber-paneled bottom ensures the contents
are dry at all times. There have been reports that the kit may not
be as fully stocked as expected, so you may need to supplement this bag with a few items
on your own. The next product on our list was chosen because
it is a great choice for people who are looking for a Stocked Trauma Bag with lots of bells
and whistles. At number 3 we have the Elite First Aid Stocked
Tactical Trauma Kit. Elite First Aid has more than 20 years’
experience under its belt. It taps this wealth of experience to produce

Kit is a highly functional backpack, designed for tactical and rescue operations and well
stocked with EMS items. Its backpack style has lots of easy-access
pockets and is easy to carry while still having enough extra room for additional items. Unfortunately, this stocked trauma bag lacks
the reflective strips that many of its competitors have, making it a less viable option for those
who may need it in dark environments. When choosing the right Stocked Trauma Bag
for your needs, TopProducts knows that budget can be an important consideration and our
number 2 pick, the Dixie Ems Dixiegear Stocked Trauma Kit takes the spot for best value. Dixie EMS uses cutting edge technology for

divider. It has two zippered exterior pockets for quick
access to EMS items. Its bright color options make it hard to miss
amidst other gear and it also features easy-grip handles. Although you can never predict the future,
this kit likely won’t be best for severe emergencies as some of the stocked items might
be of lower quality and potency than others. Remember, you can always remove and replace
what’s inside your stocked trauma bag. And finally, the Lightning X Jumbo Medic Stocked
Trauma Kit made it to our Top Choice position because it provides a good array of features
with an affordable price. Lightning X Products manufactures top notch
and reliable emergency outfits, gear and accessories. It’s the go-to brand for EMTs with affordable
products. The Lightning X Products Jumbo Medic Stocked
Trauma Kit comes with an oxygen cylinder and is made with a roomy interior, sturdy padded
strap and extremely durable material. Its PVC construction and nylon reinforced
bottom makes it reliable and durable, so you never have to worry about the weather soiling
your supplies. However, it is quite large and may not be
easy to move around, making it better suited to be a stationary kit for an ambulance or
in the home. These are our top 5 Stocked Trauma Bags. We hope you enjoyed watching our review. Until next time, take care. Click now to subscribe to our youtube channel

Hi, I’m Lord Mayor Graham Quirk. Brisbane’s subtropical climate means our city is prone to severe weather events. The most common weather events for Brisbane include: flooding, severe storms with hail and damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and bushfires. aking the time to prepare can help reduce the impacts that potential severe weather can have on your family, pets and property. With some simple steps, you can be prepared for the storm season. Hi, I’m Ash Pringle from the Brisbane City SES. Most of us look forward to summer, but there are some things we all need to do to make sure we’re prepared for all that summer can bring, including the storm season. One of the easiest is to prepare your home emergency kit. The reason why every home needs one is because summer storms, cyclones, floods or other disasters could cut us off from outside help – leaving us without power, phones, internet, or even safe drinking water. The big question you need to ask here is what would your family need to keep going for three days without all those things we all take for granted. Some of the basics that all emergency kits should have include: non-perishable food – especially food in tins, and food that doesn’t need cooking; plenty of bottled drinking water; torches with spare batteries – a much safer option than candles and kerosene lanterns; a portable radio, again with spare batteries – without power, phones and internet, this could the only way to stay in touch with what’s going on around you; and of course, a well-stocked first aid kit. You should also think about adding any medicines that you and your family take; if you have babies or young children, those special things you need to take care of them for three days. And think also about your pets – think about what you need to take care of them for three days too. When you’ve got all that together, best place for it is in a good quality plastic tub with a waterproof lid, kept somewhere that’s easy to get to. And as we approach summer, get into the habit now of planning ahead with simple habits like: keeping your mobile phone, laptops and tablets charged; filling prescriptions before they run low; stocking up on some extra tin food, and keeping some long-life milk in the pantry. Storing passports and other important documents in a sealed ziplock plastic bag, and knowing where they are if you ever need to evacuate in a hurry. Everyone’s emergency kit is going to be a little different – and in planning yours, remember those three days – what will you and your family need if you were cut off from outside help for three days? For more information on how to prepare for severe weather this summer, visit Brisbane City Council’s website or call Council on (07) 3403 8888.
