QUESTION: I have heard that I can give money to charity and then get some income back? Podnos: Ultimately, making charitable gifts has two possible results. Doing so almost always results in lower taxes through charitable deductions. But many charitable gifts can also provide an income stream. Just how you want the income stream designed is what adds some complexity to the process. For example, you can have the charity itself pay you an income (called a Charitable Gift Annuity).
No one should say that retirement is easy! Your investments in retirement should not necessarily look the same as when you were working, for when retirement actually begins, your portfolio is then subject to an important new risk called the “sequence of returns.”If your investments (particularly stocks) go down in price while you are accumulating funds for retirement, all the better. You might not like it, but it is always best to buy things at a discount.
Many things change in retirement, but taxes are forever. But, there are many significant factors to know and act on when thinking about taxation during your retirement years. Most people in retirement drop down to a lower marginal tax rate, as their income is both lower than when working, and also derived from a mix of after tax money, dividends, capital gains and other income taxed as “ordinary” instead of primarily all earned/ordinary income when working.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
