Ex-pats working in Italy can now save up to 90% on taxable income.

What better time to pack up and head to sunny Italy! A bill that included very generous tax incentives for people interested in relocating to Italy has been made into law. The ‘Decree of Growth’, also known as the ‘lavoratori impatriati’ regime, is aimed at any type of worker, regardless of their qualification or skill level. It expands on the previous version, which only included managers, executives and entrepreneurs.

Passed under ‘Law 58’, the decree reduces the amount of taxable income to just the first 30% of the worker’s employment income for the first five years. This leaves that 70% that a worker can keep tax free. And that's just for starters.

If an individual chooses to relocate to southern Italy or to the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, the incentives would be even greater. Taxable income for those new residents is just 10% in the first five years – meaning that 90% is untaxed.

Governor signs law blocking LLC's from hiding identities of home buyers.

Governor Cuomo signed into law new legislation requiring Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) to disclose all parties involved in buying or selling properties in New York. Prior to the law, property owners coild hide behind anonymous "shell" companies, making it impossible for the law to enforce code violations. The law is intended to bring full transparency to LLC partners. 
The measure was sponsored in the Senate by James Skoufis  (D, Woodbury), who chairs the Senate investigations committee, which has been concentrating on code enforcement issues, and Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski, (D, New City).
In a dramatic setting, they announced the new law while standing in front of a condemned two-family house at 230 City Terrace in the City of Newburgh. The property's owner is listed only as T&J Estate Properties LLC. Condemned in March of 2019, the house has been written up for nineteen code violations in 2019. The city cannot locate an owner responsible for the buil ...

This cute yellow bug ain't so cute! (Video)

While planting perennials last evening I came across this charming little yellow caterpillar! He was taking a joyful walk up the neighbor's drive with such verve and determination that I had no choice but to video him. He was so cute, all yellow with those funny little black feathers waving in the air. I wanted to pick him up and give him a good cuddle.
But after shooting this video and saying goodbye as he continued neighbor-ward, I did what any vigilant lepidopterophile would do - I googled him.

Turns out this little bugger is poisonous!

It is the caterpillar stage of the American Dagger Moth (Acronicta Americana), a not so impressive but well camouflaged gray-beige moth, which grows to a wingspan of about 2.5 inches. In its caterpillar stage, those black spikes on the little yellow worm are full of toxins which squirt out if the bug is touched or otherwise disturbed. On human skin, the toxins form large, itchy red welts in a few hours which are not a pleasant thing.&nbs ...
