    The Roth IRA Trick Congress Is Planning to Take Away

    Tax reform efforts have moved at full speed in the past two months, and Congress has now reached agreement on a final tax reform proposal for members of both the House and Senate to vote on in the coming week. Roth IRAs are one of the most valuable tax-deferred vehicles to help you with your retirement savings, allowing for tax-free growth of after-tax savings throughout your career and beyond. Anyone with traditional IRA retirement assets can put assets into a Roth IRA through what's known as a Roth conversion.

    The Trump tax cuts would save me $2,100

    Woohoo! Under the final tax bill President Trump is poised to sign within days, my annual tax payment would drop by about $2,100, compared with what I paid in 2016. Instead, I’ll probably save it and try to earn a respectable rate of return, so I have the money on hand in the future if Congress has to raise taxes to fill the budget hole they’re creating by cutting taxes in 2017. House and Senate Republicans have now agreed on a final tax bill Congress seems likely to pass within days.

    Billionaire's family attack death reports

    The family of a Canadian billionaire and his wife have hit back at reports surrounding their recent deaths. Police are treating the deaths of Barry Sherman, 75, and his wife Honey, whose bodies were found in their Toronto home on Friday, as "suspicious" but say no suspects are being sought. Canadian media, citing police sources, say the case is being investigated as a possible murder-suicide. But a family statement said no-one close to the couple believed this. "Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and commitment to their family and community totally inconsistent with the rumours regrettably circulated in the media as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths," it read.

    GM shows new Silverado pickup at event in Texas

    General Motors is showing of an all-new version of the Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck at an event in Texas. The company released pictures of the rounded new truck with thin LED headlamps and a blacked-out front grille. GM gave few details ahead of its official debut at the Detroit auto show in January. The company says the 2019 Silverado will be lighter than the current model with a high-strength steel bed. It will have a mixed-metal body — that likely means a combination of aluminum and steel. The truck also will get new engines and transmissions, possibly including a diesel. The changes should help GM gain ground on the aluminum-clad Ford F-Series, the top-selling vehicle in the U.S. Fiat

    Canada's Fighter Jet Saga Just Got Weirder

    As a founding member of the nine-nation international coalition that helped Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) design its F-35 stealth fighter, Canada was logically expected to buy this fighter from Lockheed Martin to replace its aging fleet of 60 Boeing-built CF-18 Canadian-variant F/A-18A fighters. Then, price worries caused Canada to give Boeing a second look, and consider buying at least a handful of new F/A-18s instead while it mulled new plans for a larger acquisition. Irked at Canadian planemaker Bombardier (NASDAQOTH: BDRBF) making inroads in the United States by selling small commercial airliners at as much as 70%-off list price, Boeing petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission to levy import tariffs on the Canadian company.
