Insight On Business the News Hour

Reflections on Washington D.C. from DMDC2017

If you were with us last week you heard a number of reports as we broadcast from the Greater Des Moines Partnership Washington D.C. Fly-In (#DMDC2017). Over 200 business, civic and non-profit leaders took a charter flight to D.C. to listen, learn and lobby for a host of economic issues that are critical to Central Iowa and beyond. Today Michael offers some personal reflections about the trip from issues the surround health care to transportation to political jabs to bipartisan efforts. What really goes on vs. what sometimes other media outlets share or ignore completely.

ReBranding - Block Advisers More Than Taxes

We're thrilled when a business calls us and wants to share their back-story. That's what happened early last month when we heard from Alisha Dolson from Block Advisers of the Des Moines Metro. Here she is joined by long-time tax agent Robert Sayler and we talk about what the, rather new, division of H&R Block does. Hey, it is tax time and more...

Reducing Property Taxes - Commercial & Residential

In this conversation with Sam Kreamer of the Kreamer Law Firm we dive into property taxes. Of all the taxes we pay, property taxes are the most subjective. Here we discuss how property taxes are determined, the various classes of property, how to reduce property taxes and let businesses know about the rather new Business Property Tax Credit...think Homestead but for business.

Business and the Iowa Legislature

The Iowa Chamber Alliance presented their legislative wish list during a press event on December 1st. We asked John Stineman, the Executive Director for the Alliance, to join us for a conversation about taxes, corporate tax incentives and rural revitalization. We think it made for an interesting conversation as business asks for more from the Iowa Legislature.

Wage & Hour Rules, Taxes and More

In this conversation with Alicia Shaul, CPA from Shaul & Desmond we covered lots of ground. As you may know the wage and overtime rules that were supposed to go into effect on December 1st have been stopped by a court order out of Texas. What is the effect, what should businesses do and how about those promised tax cuts from President Elect Trump? Lots of conversation and worth a listen.
