One avowed raison d’être of the GOP tax reform plan is to make it easier to pay Uncle Sam. But life won’t get necessarily get easier if Congress sends a tax bill for President Trump to sign. In addition to cutting corporate and individual tax rates, and reducing the total number of income brackets, GOP leaders have reiterated time and again that their planned reform will radically shrink the size of the 1040 form most taxpayers fill out.
The 30-year-old, who is responsible for budget planning and technical procurement for an Atlantic City-based aircraft simulator facility, earned a combined 5 percent raise over the past 12 months, including her bonus, cost-of-living adjustment and performance bump. This followed a big promotion two years ago. “I’ve been saving my performance reviews and compiling a portfolio of contributions as a negotiation resource to eventually get another large jump within the next few years,” says Alden.
The recently released tax plan from U.S. House Republicans has a bit of a split personality. When it comes to corporate taxes, the goal is clear: cut, cut, cut. On individual taxes, however, the message is less clear. And that’s especially true when it comes to family expenses, like child care. The tax overhaul would nearly double the standard deduction, but kill personal exemptions.
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".
