Blackhawks fans prepare man caves for October 7 opener of the 2010-11 NHL season

 

CHiCAGO, GURNEE, NAPERVILLE, TINLEY PARK, IL …

 

For Blackhawks fans, getting ready for the upcoming season means preparing their “man caves” for several months of equally intense NHL hockey viewing.

 

In your dad’s day, the “man cave” was the workshop in the garage. Today, it’s typically a finished room in the basement where the man of the house might work out, have an office, and, of course, watch sports—especially the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. DirectBuy, the leading home improvement and furnishings club with direct insider prices, has some pointers for making the man cave guest-friendly for the upcoming NHL season and beyond.

 

“While being able to get away from the rest of the house and watch sporting events like hockey in peace may have been the genesis of the man cave, what might not have been taken into consideration initially was the desire to someday invite others to watch the game with you,” said Jeremy Vest, owner of DirectBuy of DuPage County. “Let’s face it, if you’re setting up a space fit for entertaining guests that’s something most men may want some assistance with.”

 

So what items might today’s man cave need to complete the perfect hockey-watching party?:

 

Kegerator, a man-cave essential for a beer-drinking crowd

Wide Screen TV with HD; surround sound speakers also recommended

Sectional sofa to accommodate multiple visitors; reclining chair with cup holders for the host.

Full-size, built-in bar area or free-standing, mobile bar station

Tile or wood flooring that’s particularly resilient to potential spillage

Pool table, air hockey, or foosball for halftime recreation

Mini-kitchen with microwave to reheat buffalo wings.

Home gym equipment—e.g. treadmill, elliptical—to work off the excess calories consumed during man cave weekend hockey marathons.

 

DirectBuyoffers nearly everything you need to create the perfect man cave no matter what your favorite sport might be at prices direct from manufacturers or their authorized suppliers. If you know what you want but don’t know how to pull it all together, DirectBuy also employs product specialists and professional designers well versed in the art of designing the perfect recreational space, while keeping you on budget.

Orlando Magic fans prepare man caves for October 28 opener of the 2010-11 NBA season

 

ORLANDO, FL…

 

For Magic fans, getting ready means preparing their “man caves” for several months of equally intense NBA viewing–particularly when those games involve the team from south Florida.

 

In your dad’s day, the “man cave” was the workshop in the garage. Today, it’s typically a finished room in the basement where the man of the house might work out, have an office, and, of course, watch sports—especially when it’s local NBA entry, the Orlando Magic. DirectBuy, the leading home improvement and furnishings club with direct insider prices, has some pointers for making the man cave guest-friendly for the upcoming NBA season and beyond.

 

“While being able to get away from the rest of the house and watch sporting events like basketball in peace may have been the genesis of the man cave, what might not have been taken into consideration initially was the desire to someday invite others to watch the game with you,” said Brian Cohen, owner of DirectBuy of Orlando. “Let’s face it, if you’re setting up a space fit for entertaining guests that’s something most men may want some assistance with.”

What To Do Before the October 15th Tax Extension Deadline if You Need Tax Help for Unfiled Tax Returns or IRS Back Taxes

If you filed for an extension to file your tax returns in April, your taxes must be filed by October 15. The worst thing in the world you can do is not file your income tax return on time because you don’t have money to pay what’s owed!  Here’s what you need to do, if this is your situation: File your tax return on or before October 15th and send it in with a money order or cashier’s check for $ 10.00.  This will ensure two hugely important things:

1.) It will take the IRS’s power away to assess a 25% failure to file penalty away, and 2.) it will create a computerized record at IRS that you filed on time and made a good faith and credible effort to pay something.

So those of your who have been procrastinating better wake up! And for anyone who can’t afford to pay your taxes come April 15th or October 15 – know that you’re not alone.  It’s a common problem and a lot of people end up in tax trouble because they don’t file their tax returns on time even with an extension because they don’t have the money to pay.

Here’s what you can do before the October 15 tax extension deadline if you have unfiled tax returns or IRS debt from back taxes:

•  Get a good tax attorney or tax resolution specialist. You are in dangerous waters here where only an expert tax resolution specialist or tax attorney can help you. To get the back taxes help you need, contact a tax attorney or tax resolution specialist. They are on your side. The IRS is not.


•  You need a sense of urgency. If you haven’t filed your tax return before the April 15th deadline, you need to file for an extension using Tax Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Income Tax Return. Not filing your taxes is the worst thing you can do because you can incur a 25% failure to file penalty right off the top.  Failure to file tax returns may be construed as a criminal act by the IRS, punishable by one year in jail and $ 10,000 for each year not filed.


If you haven’t filed for this year, even after April 15th tax deadline you can still file for a tax extension using tax form 4868. A tax extension provides tax help because it can stop the “failure to file” penalty clock before it reaches the maximum. Get tax help from a tax attorney or tax resolution specialist if you’re tempted to file for October 15th tax extension after the April 15th deadline has passed. Only a tax attorney or tax resolution specialist can give you the tax help you need.


•  You need to whip out your checkbook, even if you can only pay $ 5. The bad news is that even taxpayers who received a tax extension for filing are not granted more time for the payment of taxes owed and may need income tax relief.


If you fail to pay your back taxes due, you will incur additional penalties for “failure to pay”. Any tax attorney will tell you that to avoid back tax penalties and interest, ideally you should pay 90% of your estimated taxes when you file your tax form 4868 on April 15th. To avoid additional back tax penalties, taxpayers should file by the deadline and pay as much as they can. You will still have a failure to pay penalty, but it’s much less.


Our tax attorneys tell our tax relief clients that no matter how much is owed, if they enclose a check for $ 5 or $ 10 for back taxes with the return and file it on time, that’s going to give them tax help instantly because:


1) Filing cuts down on the failure to file penalty, so you take that 25% penalty off the table.

2) Writing a check for your back taxes creates a record at IRS that says you actually filed on time and they have to post that $ 5 or $ 10 back taxes check to your account.  


You need to discover quickly whether you owe the IRS more back taxes or you’re due for a refund. If you overestimated your back taxes in April and paid the IRS too much, then you’ll get a tax refund as soon as you file your full 1040 tax return, hopefully long before the October 15th tax extension deadline.


You may need tax software to discover your IRS debt from back taxes. By October all those discounted tax software boxes offering tax help will be long gone. A tax attorney and tax resolution specialist will have the software you need going back a decade to calculate both state and federal taxes. If you owe back taxes for more than one year, a good tax attorney or tax resolution specialist may be your only shot at getting the tax help you need.


You need to get your paperwork in order. Filing an October 15th tax extension means you have more time to collect the final paperwork you need. If you have been the victim of a financial crime, a good tax attorney can go back and file amended returns that can drastically improve your back taxes problem.


•  You need to act quickly or the IRS will. If you don’t file a tax return by the October 15th tax extension deadline, the IRS may file one for you. If you don’t get tax help from a tax attorney, the IRS may prepare a “Substitute For Return” for delinquent taxpayers. It’s important to file a tax return as well as any prior delinquent tax returns as soon as possible to save money and avoid significant long-term consequences. Get professional tax help from tax attorney so that you get all the tax relief you’re allowed.


If you owe back taxes for more than one year, all your prior tax returns must be filed to be eligible for income tax relief. All back tax returns must be filed before the IRS will entertain any type of tax settlement.


•  You need to realize that this is your last chance. Can you file for an extension past the October 15th tax deadline extension? Not a chance. The IRS will occasionally extend an extension beyond October 15th for a class of people who have suffered a natural disaster. If your home wasn’t destroyed by a hurricane, then your chances of getting a tax extension beyond October 15th are about the same as winning the lottery.


The good news is that with an experienced and professional tax attorney or tax resolution specialist, you have a real hope of resolving your back taxes and IRS problems if you act now. I believe there’s tax help for every problem. For a delinquent taxpayer, it’s never too late to resolve your tax debt and avoid IRS penalties.

Reds October Ends Prematurely
When the Cincinnati Reds couldn't win a game with starter Homer Bailey pitching seven innings, allowing just one hit and striking out 10, we should have all known right then they were in trouble. There is no room for mercy in the baseball playoffs …
