The 2016 PERMANENT FUND DIVIDEND was $1,022. This does mean the kids will have to pay taxes on their dividend. They can either file their own return (if they have W-2 wages) or be included on your return. For help with reporting their dividends, call or e-mail my office.

Alaska's minimum wage went up to $9.75 an hour effective January 1, 2016. It will be adjusted every year after that for inflation with the new rate being effective on January 1 of each year. No word yet on the rate for 2017.

The STANDARD MILEAGE RATES FOR 2016 went into effect on January 1, 2016:
54 cents per mile for business miles driven
19 cents per mile for medical or moving miles driven
14 cents per mile driven for charitable purposes

2017 TAX LAW CHANGES: Beginning in 2017 the medical expense threshold will increase to 10% of adjusted gross income for taxpayers 65 and over (it's currently 7.5%). Seniors who think they will exceed or get close to this year's 7.5% threshold (and be able to itemize) should consider getting and paying for elective health procedures before year-end.

Be sure to come back often and see what's new - I'll be updating this site on a regular basis as new tax laws become effective.
