Funk Trio Organ Freeman To Support TAUK For Hollywood Throwdown

first_imgUp-and-coming L.A. funk trio Organ Freeman continues to make moves, as the band keeps things funky and will soon appear at Brooklyn Comes Alive. Today, the band has been announced as support for TAUK, playing a hometown show at The Roxy in Hollywood, CA. These two instrumental fusion groups are guaranteed to throw it down when they get together on November 4th.With a new album out in just a couple weeks, TAUK’s uniquely instrumental brand of progressive funk fusion had earned them a great reputation. Their live shows are downright infectious, and the energy of new music is sure to translate into great playing! When you combine that energy with the all-out funk jamming of Organ Freeman, it’s a sure fire recipe for success.You can’t help but grin when you hear that a band is named Organ Freeman. That grin turns into an all-out smile when you listen to their music, a soulful-yet-peppy blend of instrumental jazz fusion that takes no prisoners. It’s some serious toe-tapping jives, fueled by the trio hard at work: guitarist Erik Carlson, drummer Rob Humphreys and organist Trevor Steer.Check out all of the information about the show in the artwork below, and get tickets here.last_img read more

Road trip rewards

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Our family camp-and-fish vacation out West from which we recently returned was a much-needed break and bonding time for me and mine. The trip was a working vacation for me, as I will be featuring it in a future issue of AAA Home & Away magazine, documenting our 18-day drive-and-camp adventure with a rental Airstream trailer in tow. We visited Glacier and Yellowstone national parks, as well as other destinations along the 4,500-mile route. Highlights included watching a grizzly bear cross our path on a hike out of Avalanche Lake in Glacier and watching my son Ethan land two huge cutthroat trout in the Yellowstone River with bison and active thermals venting steam in the background.Unexpected highpoints included feeding trout at the D.C. Booth Historical National Fish Hatchery in downtown Spearfish, South Dakota, the unexpected beauty of Flathead Lake in Montana, and discovering the dramatic geography of the Dells region of Wisconsin. The pre-trip concerns I had about sharing a campground with bikers attending an annual motorcycle rally in nearby Sturgis, SD, were unfounded (they were a reasonably quiet, pleasant bunch), even if the bowfishing trip I had arranged probably was more fun for 16-year-old Ethan and me than for Maria, who spent the 8-to-midnight Wisconsin River excursion taking photos and swatting insects attracted by the halogen lights used to spot the carp, buffalo and quillbacks we targeted.Our first long-distance camping vacation forced us out of our comfort zone in several ways, and more than once I caught gazes lingering on Fairfield Inns we passed along the route. The hikes to mountain lakes we shared in Glacier and Yellowstone were grueling (and wet) at times, but the reward of hooking a cutthroat trout, standing in the chilled spray of a glacier-fed waterfall and watching a wild grizzly bear at eye level more than made up for the effort. And the conversations that ensued between mother, father and son during such off-grid periods were worth gold.last_img read more

Cryptocurrency — What you need to know from a tax perspective

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Brian E. Ravencraft, CPA, CGMA, Partner at Holbrook & Manter, CPAsRegardless of your opinion about cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, one thing is for certain — they are here to stay. Since their beginnings a decade ago, much mystery has surrounded cryptocurrencies regarding their origins, value and purposes. As cryptocurrencies have become more established and accepted as payment, it is more important to understand what the treatment and consequences of purchasing, selling, paying with and accepting as payment cryptocurrencies from a tax perspective.Per IRS Notice 2014-21, cryptocurrencies are not legal tender, but are generally regarded as property comparable to that of a stock, bond or other investments. Treating cryptocurrencies in this manner means whenever a cryptocurrency is purchased as an investment, the basis in the cryptocurrency is the purchase price plus any permitted transaction fees just like other stock that is traded on an exchange. This also means that whenever the cryptocurrency is sold, a capital gain or loss will result from its sale. Simple enough, but what happens when you pay for goods or services with cryptocurrency?When you pay for goods or services with cryptocurrency, per Notice 2014-21, the IRS will treat that transaction the same as if you sold it. For example, if you paid $1,000 worth of Bitcoin for your purchases on Overstock.com, you would have $1,000 in proceeds for tax purposes as the payment to Overstock.com would be treated the same as if it were the sale of Bitcoin as an investment. This means every time you purchase something with a cryptocurrency you will either have a capital gain or loss depending on what your basis (value + permitted transaction fees) of the cryptocurrency was when you purchased it. That’s good to know, but what happens if you are paid in cryptocurrency?If you are paid in cryptocurrency for either goods of services, per Notice 2014-21, it is treated as though you were paid in equivalent cash amount of cryptocurrency and you must report it as ordinary income subject to federal income tax. That amount that you were paid will also be your basis in the cryptocurrency.The takeaway from all of this — be diligent and informed about any cryptocurrency transactions that you have made or are going to make. If you are about to purchase, sell, pay with or accept as payment cryptocurrencies remember to do the following:Keep records of the dates of the transactionsKeep records of the numerical number of cryptocurrency units transactedKeep records of the individual unit prices of the cryptocurrency in U.S. Dollars for the transaction datesDoing these three items will help you be compliant with cryptocurrency transactions when dealing with the IRS. If you have any tax issues with cryptocurrencies or any other tax matters, please contact your accountant. I am always available to answer your questions as well. Brian E.
