2nd Ward residents and building owners can stop into the service office at 1400 N. Ashland Avenue to pick up these FREE reflective alley address labels for garages. There may be instances when the City's police, fire, and paramedics need to respond to a call by approaching through the alley. When this occurs, it is important to have clearly displayed addresses on your garage or fence. Many buildings in the City of Chicago do not have rear addresses posted which can result in emergency services going to the wrong address. Due to limited supplies we kindly ask that you limit your request to one per address. For more information please email ward02@cityofchicago.org.

    Just read some of this thread. Steve sounds like your the only one impressed with yourself. Whats the big deal about an Eve of the Eve party at Merch Mart that anybody could drop $160 for. It's not some exclusive shindig that's by invitation only. You can see Maggie Speaks at any of the numerous summer fest's all over the city ( but not downtown!! ) every summer for free. I don't think anybody at the party was all that impressed with you either Steve or you wouldn't be spending your time on EveryBlock with all us dumb paupers. Poor Steve. Too smart and rich for everyone.

Key Found Hoyne/Dickens

I happened upon a lost key by the first tree north of Dickens, west of Hoyne. I left it visible on the tree root. It had ice on it so it was probably dropped awhile ago, maybe last night. It was difficult to see making it easy to miss if someone backtracked for it. Hopefully whoever lost this didn't get locked out in the cold.

  • Outlaw leaving packages? We can't even enforce the illegality of bold face shooting someone dead in broad daylight. Good luck with that one. Merry Christmas to all and peace on earth (especially Chicago) and goodwill to all.

  • This is both sad and frustrating. Consider these solutions...I saw that Walgreens was accepting FedEx packages for customers. Amazon has locations where you can have them delivered. There may be other options like that available at no additional cost. I started having packages delivered to my office but I can see where that might not work well. Letting anything over the size of an envelope be delivered to your mailbox is really risky. Hope this helps.

How the 20% Pass-Through Income Deduction may Affect You

The new tax bill has many trying to understand how the 20% deduction applies to pass-through income and whether it affects them. Before making any changes to become a sole proprietor, understand the deduction and speak to a tax professional to determine if it can be beneficial to you.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/the-new-20-deduction-on-pass-through.html

    The New 20% Deduction on Pass-Through income, What is It? And does it affect you?
    There are many intricacies of the new Tax Act that will be discussed and analyzed over the coming weeks and months. While some of the changes will allow for a tax reduction for "pass-through" entities, the complexities of the tax bill should be discussed with your tax advisor to make sure you understand how it affects you before you make any significant financial or employment changes.
    http://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com
  • Is the 20% credit on pass throughs a permanent deduction or does it expire at some point?

  • It is currently set to expire with the individual tax rates after 2025. Although the entire tax bill can be changed with the passage of any new laws.

  • Thanks Bryan! It was also helpfull to know that it is a "below the line" after AGI deduction... I assume a new line on page 2. I looked everywhere for that info and it was/is hard to come by. I even tried reading the bill, but it was like trying to read mandarin, or maybe klingon!
