If they are extended to some degree, which most expect that they will be the IRS may not have enough time to update the information used by your payroll department to withhold the correct amount of tax from your paycheck.

New Law saves education jobs

On August 10, President Obama signed into law the “Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act of 2010.” The law will fund the jobs of an estimated 140,000 teachers who would otherwise have lost their jobs, and it will help states with Medicaid costs.

To pay for these provisions, the law makes a number of changes to the foreign tax credit and eliminates the advance payment option for the earned income credit.
