With gas prices reaching record highs during 2022, the IRS adjusted mileage rates to provide some relief for miles driven for the following purposes: business, medical, and/or charity.

At the launch of 2023, the IRS increased the standard mileage rates as follows:

IRS Announces Interest Rate Increases for the Fourth Quarter of 2022

 

Beginning October 1, 2022, individual taxpayers can expect to see a 1% increase in interest rates for tax over and underpayments (taxes owed that are not fully paid).

This 6% rate is an increase from the previously established 5% (July 1, 2022) and the interest will be compounded daily.  Individuals are not the only taxpayers that will be seeing the hike; corporate taxpayers with an overpayment exceeding $10,000 will be assigned a 3.5% rate, or 5% if the overpayment is below this threshold.   For underpayments on the corporate side, an 8% rate will be assigned.

For more information on the new interest rates for the fourth quarter, please click here.

CalSavers Retirement Savings Program Final Registration Deadline is June 30, 2022

 

The CalSavers Retirement Savings Program is a by-product of state-mandated retirement legislation that was launched in July 2019 as part of a phased rollout over three years with the goal of improving the financial security of Californians working in the private sector. It is sponsored by the State of California, facilitated by businesses, and funded by employee savings.
