The tax – usually charged on profits from the sale of assets held for at least 12 months – was suspended in 1985 as part of measures to make Kenya more attractive to foreign direct investment, but tax experts now argue that it should be reintroduced to put the country in line with global trends.

Alert readers may already have noted that this chain e-mail does not provide links to any of Obama's actual proposals or cite any sources for the claims it makes. That is because they are made up. This widely distributed message is so full of misinformation that we find it impossible to believe that it is the result of simple ignorance or carelessness on the part of the writer. Almost nothing it says about Obama's tax proposals is true. We conclude that this deception is deliberate. Wachovia Apologizes a vice president of Wachovia Securities in St. Louis, Mo.

Exxon's Profits: Measuring a Record Windfall - US News and World ...
Exxon Mobil's staggering $40.6 billion earnings for 2007 drive the truth home: There's no business on the planet that gushes forth more profit than selling oil—nothing even close. But just because it's more money than any other corporation has ever made in history, is it a windfall? Some, notably the oil companies themselves, spurn the implication that the astronomical earnings are an instance of good market fortune that has blown their way. They don't like the term windfall, especially since it is so frequently followed by an even more despised term, tax. So don't be surprised if you hear a lot of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Google Answers: How is profit from sale of rental condo taxed?
Hi, Yes, I know I should ask a professional tax advisor, but GA researchers are often just as knowledgeable and a lot more fun. :-) Here are condo specifics: Purchased in 1996 for 75K (in California). Currently no mortgage. I never lived in it; purchased as investment only - been renting it out and declaring rental income on Schedule E (which I believe is taxed as ordinary income). Let's say I sell today for 425K. Is the profit taxed as ordinary income? Or taxed at capital gains tax rate (which I believe is currently not too painful at 15%)?
