NICK CLUMSKY FROM WELLS FARGO IS HERE.

NICK - WHAT TAX STRATEGIES COULD OUR VIEWERS CONSIDER TO HELP EASE THE BURDEN OF THEIR TAXES IN COMING YEARS? Return to index of stories...


WELLS FARGO-PLASMA CG


· This is a very timely topic because right now, you are collecting all of your tax papers, 1099s, W2s, social security statements, etc. to bring to your accountant so you can sit down with him or her and meet about your taxes for last year or the 2013 tax year. And typically, most of you will only discuss what happened in 2013. I would strongly recommend that while you are with your CPA or accountant that you talk about some of the things you can do now to lessen your tax liabilities in future years. And here are several strategies you can consider with the help of your accountant and financial advisor.

· So first, for you all out there that are still working, consider deferring compensation, if you can. By deferring the receipt of taxable income, you can help reduce your current exposure to higher tax brackets, higher capital gains tax rates, and the 3.8% Medicare Surtax. You can defer compensation and thereby reduce your taxable income by maximizing contributions to tax-deferred plans like your 401K, your IRA, a 403B plan, or a SEP.

· Second, consider choosing an investment that will offer you tax deferral. By investing in certain tax-deferred products, like annuities, you can reduce your taxable income from investments and lower your current year tax liability. Income earned within tax-deferred annuities is not included in the calculation of your taxes until monies are distributed out of the annuity.

· And third, consider changing the tax character of the income you receive from your investments. Evaluating certain changes to your portfolio may allow you to adjust the way your investment returns are taxed. There are several ways you can do this. You could invest in tax-exempt bonds whose interest is exempt from both federal income tax and the Medicare Surtax. You could also consider investing in growth-oriented stocks for part of your portfolio since appreciation on those securities is not taxed until you sell the investment. You could also consider converting a traditional IRA, SEP, or SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA since future distributions will come out tax free and those distributions will not increase your modified adjusted gross income for the calculation of the Medicare Surtax.

· Any one of these or a combination of these strategies could result in lower taxes for you, which means more of your hard-earned dollars stay in your pocket. Make sure that when you meet with your tax professional, you discuss more than just what happened last year. Discuss strategies to help reduce your tax burden in future years too. Then call your financial advisor to put those strategies to work. Return to index of stories...

4:20 The pediatric populations we know from scientific studies are most susceptible to radiation and radiation-induced cancers. They're growing and they're developing and that makes it more susceptible.

IT'S ESTIMATED THAT REDUCING THE NUMBER OF UNNECESSARY AND HIGH DOSE CT SCANS GIVEN TO KIDS could cut their lifetime risk of associated cancers by as much as 62 percent.

DR. CORY DUFFEK/NEURORADIOLOGIST

CT scans use X-ray to give doctors cross-sectional images of a patient's body. In children, they are most frequently to evaluate an injury. Now technology is making it easier for doctors to get what they need and still play it safe.

DR. DUFFEK-DEMO

:01: We're looking at one of our new GE scanners- this is one of the new scanners it has the low dose techniques available to us.

EACH LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM RADIOLOGY FACILITY IS EQUIPPED WITH SCANNERS THAT PROVIDE VARIABLE DOSES, BASED ON PATIENT AND NEED. TODAY, EVEN A STANDARD CT SCAN IS MUCH LOWER THAN 20 YEARS AGO. THE LATEST equipment INCLUDES child-size protocols built in.

DR. CORY DUFFEK/NEURORADIOLOGIST

RUNS:

4:48 With our new generation of scanners now it allows us to lower that dose approximately another 13 to 30% and still get the same image quality that we were seeing.

THE IMMEDIATE BENEFIT OF GETTING A TIMELY CT SCAN MAKES IT WORTH-WHILE. BUT LOWERING RADIATION EXPOSURE CUTS DOWN ON RISK AND WORRY. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

ABOUT 700 THOUSAND PRODUCTS AMERICANS BUy EVERYDAY COME WITH NUTRITION LABELS.

BUT THE F-D-A SAYS THE LABELS DON'T ALWAYS TELL THE WHOLE STORY.

BASING CALORIES OFF UNREALISTIC SERVING SIZES. ON A SHOPPING TRIP WITH DIETITIAN REBECCA SCRITCHFIELD EXAMPLES WERE EASY TO FIND.

Nats: candy bars, candy bars yeah

THREE SERVINGS IN A SINGLE CHOCOLATE BAR.

FOUR IN A BAG OF CHEETOS.

TWO IN A 20 OUNCE BOTTLE OF SODA.

HALF A BAGEL.IS A SERVING.

SO IS HALF A CUP OF ICE CREAM.

S/REBECCA STRITCHFIELD/DIETITIAN

"Consumers might think they are eating a lower calorie or healthier than they really are."

MICHELLE OBAMA AND THE F-D-A ARE NOW PROPOSING NEW LABELS LIKE THIS ONE.

IT BASES CALORIES ON SERVINGS PEOPLE ACTUALLY EAT.

IDENTIFIES ADDED SUGARS.

MEASURES NUTRIENTS. LIKE POTASSIUM AND VITAMIN D.

AND REVISES DAILY VALUES FOR SODIUM AND FIBER.

S/Dr. Margaret Hamburg/FDA Commissioner

"These are important changes, our goal here is to design a label that is easier to read."

THE GROCERY MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION SAYS IT'S TIME FOR CHANGES,

BUT ADD, THEY SHOULD BE "BASED ON THE MOST CURRENT AND RELIABLE SCIENCE."

BACK AT THE CHECK OUT STAND.

S/Jodi Isaacson/Shopper

"They are long over due everyone should know what they are buying."

CONSUMERS SAY THEY'LL SUPPORT ANYTHING THAT MAKES "THE RIGHT CHOICES" EASIER TO MAKE.

THE F-D-A IS TAKING PUBLIC COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSAL FOR THE NEXT 90

DAYS.

BUT A FINAL RULE COULD TAKE ANOTHER YEAR.

AND THEN THE AGENCY WOULD LIKELY GIVE THE INDUSTRY ADDITIONAL TIME TO COMPLY.

BIBLE MOVIES-PKG


THE BIBLE LESSON FOR PASTOR JOEL OSTEEN'S MASSIVE CONGREGATION. IS MOVING THIS WEEK. FROM MEGA-CHURCH. TO MEGA-PLEX.

"Don't forget - on this Friday night, the 'Son of God' movie is coming out. "

"SON OF GOD" TELLS THE STORY OF JESUS. BLENDING OLD FOOTAGE FROM LAST YEAR'S SUCCESSFUL T-V MINI-SERIES "THE BIBLE". WITH NEW SCENES.

MARK BURNETT PRODUCED BOTH.

"Clearly, 2014 is being dubbed the year of the Bible."

AND YOU COULD SAY HIS MOVIE IS THE GENESIS. OF THIS YEAR'S TREND.

NEXT MONTH. THE STORY OF "NOAH" HITS THE BIG SCREEN. STARRING RUSSELL CROWE.

AND LATER THIS YEAR. CHRISTIAN BALE PLAYS MOSES. IN THE EPIC FILM "EXODUS."

THIS ALL COMES 10 YEARS AFTER THE CONTROVERSIAL "PASSION OF THE CHRIST" GENERATED NEARLY 400 MILLION DOLLARS.

"How hard is it to duplicate what 'Passion of the Christ' did?"

"It would be really hard to duplicate 'Passion of the Christ.' That was really lightning in a bottle."

LIKE "PASSION". "SON OF GOD" IS COMING OUT RIGHT BEFORE LENT.

AND CHURCHES ARE ALREADY SNAPPING UP SEATS. EVEN RENTING OUT THEATERS.

"Not knocking any other movies, but I do believe that people of faith are looking for wholesome things."

AT OSTEEN'S LAKEWOOD CHURCH. AN EAGER CROWD LINED UP FOR FREE PASSES. AFTER SOMEONE DONATED 9-THOUSAND TICKETS.

"I'm very excited about it. I can't wait to see it."

THE MOVIE'S PRODUCERS SPENT 4 YEARS VISITING CONGREGATIONS. GETTING FEEDBACK. AND BUILDING A CORE CHURCHGOING AUDIENCE.

"This is a passion project for us. The most important thing is this movie gets seen and used."

THE CHALLENGE FOR THESE FILMS. FINDING LARGER APPEAL. KNOWING CONTROVERSY COULD STRIKE IF THEY DEVIATE TOO MUCH FROM THEIR BEST-SELLING SOURCE.

"All the same rules apply to faith-based movies that apply to every other movie out there, but if you can cross over to mainstream audiences, that's box office gold."

AND IF THAT HAPPENS. THE YEAR OF THE BIBLE. COULD GET A SEQUEL. FOR TODAY, JOE FRYER, NBC NEWS, LOS ANGELES. Return to index of stories...
