Editor's Note
Bill Grabarek, Assistant Managing Editor Congress is expected to vote this week on the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act, which extends a long list of existing tax credits, deductions, and provisions. It also modifies the tax treatment of certain types of income in an attempt to significantly raise revenue. While some lawmakers say the bill will create jobs, others fear the legislation is a bit too pricey. AccountingWEB will keep you posted on further developments. And, as always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.

Sincerely,
Bill Grabarek
Assistant Managing Editor
