DES MOINES, Iowa -- Starting tomorrow, any Iowan who wants a COVID vaccine is eligible to get one.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says Monday, April 5th is the day all Iowans 16 and older become eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, if they want one.
The state is expecting more COVID vaccine doses from the federal government to arrive this week which should help with increased demand.
Governor Reynolds has asked Iowans to be patient because demand still exceeds supply.
However, Iowa should continue receiving allocations from the federal government, and the White House has touted vaccines for anyone who wants them across the country before the beginning of June.

Biden considering cancelling student loans by EO. Do you support this? | NEWSRADIO 1040 WHO

Apr 5, 2021
President Biden has asked his Education Secretary to investigate whether he can cancel student loan debt by Executive Order.
"I understand the impact of debt," he told CNN in February.
He apparently is nervous about cancelling debt for those who went to Ivy League schools though and has said publicly the Government should not cancel those loans.
As I have said many times, each President takes more power to the Executive and no matter what our politics, we should all be concerned about this trend.
So what do you think? Would you support the cancelling of student loans by Executive Order?

Will GOP help pass latest left wing boondoggle because of earmarks? | NEWSRADIO 1040 WHO

Card image cap

Apr 1, 2021
President Biden has now unveiled his latest $2.3 Trillion spending plans to improve the infrastructure of the United States.
There's a problem however. Only $650 Billion is actually for roads and bridges with the rest including a big ole $80 Billion check to Amtrak, retrofitting hospitals, homes and other buildings in an "environmentally friendly" way, expanding Medicaid ($400 Billion) and then we will use yet more Billions to permanently cap some oil and gas wells.
Having said all of that, let's talk about earmarks. Earmarks are making a return after the GOP House members recently voted in favor in a private ballot. This means that if they can get their own pet "earmarky" projects into the Bill, it will be difficult for them to vote against it - right?

Apr 1, 2021
(Ames, IA) -- Iowa State University Ag Econ Professor Chad Hart is projecting continued strong prices for corn and soybeans, even if U.S. farmers put more acres into production. Corn and soybean prices are up abuoat 50-percent over the past few years.
“Nationwide, what we’re going to see is farmers throughout the country planting more crops, more corn and soybeans,” Hart said. “
Farmers are using more farmland this year for crops than they have the past few.”
Hart says he expects Iowa's corn and soybean acres to remain stable, but other states could see more acres planted due to higher commodity prices, incentivizing farmers.

Tax preparer: homeless are eligible for the $1,400 stimulus

COLUMBIA - Americans have received three stimulus checks based on their taxes over the last year. The owner of Columbia’s Liberty Tax Franchise, Alysia Kramer, says the same goes for the homeless.
“Anyone who lives in the country and has a social security is eligible to receive a $1,400 stimulus,” Kramer said.
Kramer also added that this is the first year people are able to file without having any income. In previous years, individuals needed to have some sort of income to file a tax return.
Kramer says those who didn’t receive any income in 2020 will still need to fill out a 1040 tax form, but would need to claim the recovery rebate.

Pandemic-driven changes in tax law have made the 2020 filing season especially challenging.

The only thing worse than doing your taxes is finding out after you file that you made a costly error that shrunk or delayed your refund, resulted in you owing money or—the most dreaded outcome of all—triggered an audit.
Even with the help of software or a preparer, millions of Americans struggle to get their taxes right the first time around, so much so that the IRS devotes a whole section of its website to the common errors it sees all the time. But this year, avoiding the pitfalls that trip up so many people when completing their returns is especially challenging thanks to a slew of legislative changes to the tax code driven by the pandemic.

Collecting unemployment benefits during the pandemic could impact your tax refund

TAMPA, Fla. — As if 2020 wasn’t hard enough on our pockets, now tax season is near, and collecting unemployment benefits will impact your filings.
If you received a government stimulus check, tax experts say the good news is you won’t be taxed on it; but if you received unemployment, you may have to pay.
The unemployment benefits that helped so many Americans stay afloat during the pandemic may hurt them this tax season.
Many people rely on a tax refund to help them catch up with bills, but Rob DiMarco, CPA and owner of Tax Artist, says if you received unemployment benefits in 2020 and did not request they withhold taxes, prepare for a lower return and even the possibility of having to pay money in.
