Editorial

You should know that the Honorable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a jurist in the highest court of the United States passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020, after 07:00 p.m., at the age of 87. Justice Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton 27 years ago. Her death comes at a politically difficult time in our country, especially during a presidential election year.

It is important that you know that according to the United States Constitution, it is the sole responsibility of the President of the United States to appoint judges to the Supreme Court. This my dear readers, is the Constitution!

  • Under Article II of the Constitution, the president “shall appoint … judges to the Supreme Court,” and the Senate’s role is to provide “advice and consent” Known as the “appointments clause” of the Constitution, it lays out three sequential acts in order to fill a vacancy.First, the nomination by the president; second, the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate; and third, the appointment by the president. There is no exception for the president to refuse to nominate a successor nor is there an exception for senators to refuse to provide advice and consent.
  • Only the president has the constitutional authority to nominate a justice and the Senate does not have any authority until after the president makes a nomination. Although it may be good practice, the president is under no obligation to obtain advice from the Senate before a nomination since the Senate’s duty to provide advice and consent begins only afterthe nomination.

It is also important for you to know that the Constitution also stipulates that the Supreme Court must be composed of 9 (nine) judges. When they are confirmed their appointments are for life. They cannot be easily removed from their appointments. A Supreme Court vacancy becomes available only as a result of death, resignation, retirement, or impeachment. However, impeachment is rare, and difficult to obtain.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today encouraged New Yorkers to review their current tax situation. By taking a closer look at your tax records now, you can ensure you do not end up owing unpaid taxes, and you may be able to claim valuable tax credits when you file your income tax return next year.

“We know that many taxpayers are facing challenges this year, and we want to remind them of all the valuable tax credits available here in New York,” said New York State Commissioner of Taxation and Finance Mike Schmidt. “We also want taxpayers to understand that unemployment insurance payments are taxable. As a result, some taxpayers may need to adjust their withholding to prevent a tax bill in 2021.”

Unemployment benefits are taxable benefits

If you are receiving unemployment benefits, consider having tax withheld from these payments to avoid owing taxes when you file your federal and New York State income tax return next year. New York State unemployment insurance benefits and any of the special unemployment compensation authorized under the Coronavirus Relief Act are considered taxable income. By law, the New York State Department of Labor must report these benefits to the IRS and to the New York State Tax Department.

We encourage you to review your records and, if necessary, adjust your tax withholdings. You can change your tax withholding option on the DOL website. Doing this could help you avoid a tax bill next year. To start or stop the withholding of federal or state taxes from your weekly benefits:

  1. Login to labor.ny.gov/signin with your NY.gov ID
  2. Click “Unemployment Benefits”
  3. Click “Payment and Tax Withholding Options”
  4. Click “Tax Withholding” and follow the instructions

In January 2021, unemployment benefit recipients must access Form 1099-G, which reports Certain Government Payments, from the NYS Department of…

On Monday, September 21, 2020, Food Bank For New York City will host a pop-up food pantry at Yankee Stadium to distribute fresh produce and shelf-stable items to approximately 500 of New York’s families in need. The distribution will also include plant-based protein from Impossible Foods. Voter registration cards will be available onsite for attendees who need to register. Monday’s event will be the second time the stadium has hosted a mobile food pantry with Food Bank.

Before the pandemic, 17.5% of Bronx residents and 23.5% of children in the Bronx were food insecure. This has worsened significantly as the Bronx now has a 24.9% unemployment rate, up from 5.8% last year. Additionally, 25% of food pantries and soup kitchens in the Bronx have closed since the onset of the pandemic.

This distribution is one in a series of pop-up pantries occurring throughout the weeks ahead as part of Hunger Action Month, with the generous support of Seamless and Starbucks. This September, Food Bank is partnering with brands, advocates, influencers, and New Yorkers in the fight to end hunger. Other pop-up locations this month include Barclays Center, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, New York Hall of Science and Lincoln Center.
