Published: 09:05 GMT, 18 March 2014 | Updated: 13:06 GMT, 18 March 2014 View comments I have got so mixed up with my tax and coding as I have some PAYE earnings and other income from a small business which fluctuates from year to year. For the last tax year 2012/2013 I had a real earnings boost from the business and as such did not pay enough tax and have since been paying some of this back.

Based on data from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, the total of all state and local taxes, social security taxes, and excise taxes (gasoline, alcohol, tobacco) consumes 21% of the annual incomes of the poorest half of America.

Stephen Cauchi -Dec 17, 2014 OPEC's decision to keep up production is having major effects on oil prices and on the global economy. Photo: Erin Jonasson It may seem hard to believe, but in June Brent crude was trading at $US112 a barrel.

Low fuel prices can help boost economic growth by reducing fuel bills and leaving consumers and companies with more money to spend on other things. Problem is, two factors behind the oil-price drop — a weaker global economy and a stronger dollar — could hurt the U.

Running down a list of changes that have occurred in our skeleton and skull since the Stone Age, the University of Wisconsin anthropologist nonchalantly adds, “And it’s also clear the brain has been shrinking. ” “Shrinking?” I ask. “I thought it was getting larger. ” The whole ascent-of-man thing. “That was true for 2 million years of our evolution,” Hawks says.
