Trump, attacking the democratic process, falsely says he won.

first_imgWith millions of votes still left to be counted, President Trump early Wednesday falsely declared that he had won his race for re-election, warning that he would go to the Supreme Court to try to prematurely shut the election down.In a post-midnight appearance in the White House, Mr. Trump offered what amounted to a reckless attack on the democratic process at a time of extraordinary angst and division in a nation that had been riveted by a polarizing and unresolved election. He listed states where he falsely claimed he had already won — like Georgia, where Republicans thought Joseph R. Biden Jr. had a solid chance of winning — as he baselessly argued that opponents were trying to steal the election from him.- Advertisement – Mr. Trump’s comments appeared sure to escalate a bitter legal battle over how the votes should be counted. Pennsylvania, a state that Mr. Trump falsely claimed he had won, is just beginning to count hundred of thousands of early votes mailed in that are expected to be heavily Democratic. Gov. Tom Wolf said on Twitter that the state had more than one million mail ballots to count.- Advertisement – “It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to declare who has won this election,” Mr. Biden said. “That’s the decision of the American people.”It was unclear to what extent Mr. Trump’s remarks were calculated or extemporaneous. There was a teleprompter in front of him, though he appeared to improvise, like when he complained that a news organization — it was Fox News, though he never named it — had awarded Arizona, a state that Mr. Trump won 2016, to Mr. Biden.“We did win this election,” he said. “So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation. This is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop.”- Advertisement – Mr. Trump’s combative remarks offered a sharp contrast with an appearance an hour earlier by Mr. Biden, who counseled the nation to be patient. Mr. Biden noted that vote counting typically takes days, and sometimes longer, in normal years to count ballots, and would certainly so particularly in the middle of a pandemic that prompted many people to vote by mail.Mr. Biden’s campaign manager, Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, called Mr. Trump’s remarks “outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” saying they were “a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.” It was unclear what sort of Supreme Court challenge the president had in mind. There is no legal argument to compel states to stop counting ballots that were properly filled out and submitted on time.Lawyers with both parties had been expecting a possible move by the Trump campaign or allied Republicans to renew a bid to get the Supreme Court to stay a decision by Pennsylvania’s high court to allow election workers to count all ballots postmarked on Nov. 3 or earlier for three days after Election Day. That had not happened as of Tuesday night.Republicans had also filed suits in state and federal court on Tuesday challenging Pennsylvania election officials’ move to allow counties to contact voters whose mail-in ballots were rejected because of mistakes to give them the opportunity to fix those ballots or cast provisional, replacement ballots. State and federal judges were scheduled to hear arguments on Wednesday, as well as complaints from Mr. Trump’s campaign that its elections observers were not being given enough access to the counting process for potential challenges to Democratic votes.It was not known as of early Wednesday how many such votes may have been cast, and whether it could be significant enough to affect the outcome in the state.But Democrats were prepared for other legal maneuvers from Republicans. Mr. Trump’s campaign has planned its legal strategy for months, and it was always devised to address the very scenario that emerged overnight Tuesday — one in which election night returns showed Mr. Trump winning in states in which mail ballots threatened to tip the balance to Mr. Biden.Mr. Trump’s defiance — his rejection of an election while it was still playing out and his threat of legal action — shocked even some of his top Republican supporters. “It’s a bad strategic decision,” Chris Christie, the Republican former governor of New Jersey and an adviser to the president, said on ABC. “It’s a bad political decision.” – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgPlitvice Lakes is annually visited by more than a million mostly foreign tourists who seek and expect fresh, interesting and accurate information from this area. They want to know where they can spend time, whether it pays to stay a few days longer and ultimately read the experiences of other visitors.That is why a new tourist magazine was launched The Plitvice Times which covers a wide area of ​​Plitvice and daily, exclusively in English, informs tourists, citizens and those who are interested in this area. It follows current events, brings interesting interviews with tourists from all over the world and reveals lesser-known contents, stories and locations. Everything a tourist needs – in one place! “We’ve been working on the project for over half a year and now the magazine is finally out. It is constantly said that Plitvice, and especially the whole of Lika, are not active enough in promotion on foreign markets, so an entrepreneurial initiative was born and we have now turned the idea into reality as the only English media in the area that exclusively targets foreign markets.”Said Ante Fumić, one of the founders of the Plitvice Times, and added that the reactions were great, especially foreign tourists who are delighted to have access to information and tourist offer of the whole of Lika in English, and this is evidenced by the growing readership per day.”We want to present the whole story of Lika as a tourist destination and brand because NP Plitvice is only one main engine and motive for coming, and certainly that is not all that Lika can offer. Lika has a lot of quality content and experience that we want to show and bring closer to foreign tourists, and this is the main goal of Plitvice Times magazine.”Fumić points out and emphasizes that the idea is to offer a wider tourist offer as one Lika destination and even to combine the offer of BiH and Slovenia, primarily as an offer for tourists from the Asian market.Certainly a great idea and way of thinking because tourism is the first that knows no borders and tourists are not burdened with city, county or state borders, but they are only interested in the content. Especially when we talk about tourists from the Asian market who are known not to stay in one destination for more than a day and their only goal is to see and experience as much as possible in the shortest possible time and they are mobile. “Plitvice is one of the main motives for coming and we are thinking about how to offer a wider story, when tourists are already there. On the one hand, for foreign tourists to experience all the charms of Lika and extend their stay, so for those who are in constant motion, so we want to combine the tourist offer from BiH. Everything within a radius of 100 to 200 km from Plitvice is certainly interesting and we can connect tourists, such as the Una National Park in BiH. So our goal in the long run is to connect two or three destinations and sell one broader story in one segment. However, the main focus is certainly on Lika as a tourist destination, which is much more than Plitvice Lakes ” says Fumić.I certainly agree that we should “use” such a strong and well-positioned brand as NP Plitvice Lakes, and offer a broader story and a complete tourist offer of Lika. This should have been done much earlier, because tourists are here, we just have to give them quality and authentic content, ie a good enough motive to stay a day longer and experience all the charms of Lika, and we have something to brag about and be proud of. Apart from the web magazine, as Fumić points out, their focus is also on the web sales they want to develop. “We have launched a tourist magazine whose idea, in addition to the tourist offer, is to offer a web shop where all local entrepreneurs will be able to sell their products online, from souvenirs, content to museum tickets. “Concludes Fumić.After only a week, they have readers from all continents, 55 countries, and are looking forward to the continuation of this world story that will certainly contribute to the tourism of the entire Republic of Croatia, and especially Lika as a tourist destination. They use the hashtag #PlitviceTimes and # 1MillionReaders in communication, which significantly communicates the goal and purpose of the only tourist magazine of this type in Croatia that is in English and that sells and tells a story about an entire region, ie the destination of Lika.An excellent tourist initiative and story, which certainly deserves praise and attention. Especially when we talk about the foreign market because most tourists in Plitvice are still foreign tourists. It is certainly imperative to direct this mass of tourists who come exclusively for the Plitvice Lakes National Park to other tourist facilities that Lika is rich in, all with the aim of increasing tourist spending and extending the stay in Lika for at least one more night.last_img read more

Flat-rate taxation of rental and organization of accommodation in tourism

first_imgThe owner of the facility that performs the activity covered by the obligation to pay the tourist membership fee in Baška based in Osijek, will pay the tourist membership fee to the Tourist Board of Osijek, the Tourist Board of Osijek-Baranja County and the Croatian Tourist Board. Based on the membership fee paid in this way to the income earned in Baška, this citizen-natural person or craftsman will acquire membership in the Tourist Board of the City of Osijek. Of course and vice versa. This applies to all similar cases. HOW IS A FLAT INCOME TAX PAID? WHO IS A INCOME TAXPAYER? Also a novelty is the “permission” to the local representative body to make a decision on the payment of a flat income tax of up to HRK 1.500, but with a limit of the minimum amount of HRK 150,00. This amount is paid per bed, per accommodation unit in the camp and camp rest area and per accommodation unit in the facility for Robinson tourism. Payers are taxpayers who perform activities in the area of ​​the local self-government unit that makes the decision. A taxpayer is one who has been issued a decision on approval for the said activity in the status of a citizen-natural person, ie holder or member of a family farm, provided that according to that decision he is not a value added tax payer and does not determine income based on business books. The famous Income Tax Act (115/16), the amendments to which were published at the end of last year (OG 106/18), also “produced”Ordinance on the taxation of rental and organization of accommodation in tourism“, As the first bylaw published this year (OG 1/2019 of 2.1.2019 January XNUMX). Given that the public debate before the enactment of the Law on Amendments to the Law on Income Tax was only of a formal nature through “e-consultation”, another “afterthought” follows. The real debate begins only with the entry into force of the Act. And that is why Croatia is a special country. Article 16 of the Ordinance states: “If a taxpayer does not submit an application to the register of taxpayers within the deadline referred to in Article 87, paragraph 4 of the Act, and has a decision on approval in accordance with the provisions of the law governing the hospitality industry, the Tax Administration shall issue a decision income tax and surtax on income pursuant to Article 5 of this Ordinance ”. The owner of a business facility in Baška, for example, who resides in Osijek, will pay a flat income tax according to the decision of the Municipal Council of Baška, but in the budget of the City of Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County. On the income generated by operating in one place, he will pay taxes for arranging the communal system of another place. And by the decision of this first place. BUSINESS BOOKS AND RECORDS CONCLUSION WHO APPLIES THE LIABILITY TO THE REGISTER OF TAXPAYERS? Author: Nedo Pinezić, www.nedopinezic.com DEADLINES Time is already running fast because the Ordinance has set a deadline for deciding on the amount of flat tax for 2019 until the end of January 2019. This is certainly a precedent that the amount of tax that significantly affects business conditions is determined in the year when it is applied and applied retrogradely. on published prices and concluded contracts in the previous year on the basis of which income will be generated in the current year. IN TRANSLATION Although the “formula” for determining the annual lump sum tax is derived from “the annual lump sum income determined as the lump sum income tax ratio and the prescribed rates for determining the annual flat tax of 12%”, few people understand how the “right measure” is determined. for tax. On the day the new ordinance enters into force, the current Ordinance on renting apartments, rooms and beds for travelers and tourists and organizing camps that will be taxed at a flat rate, on the amount of flat tax and the method of paying flat tax (OG No. 1/17) ceases to apply. Although the payment of a flat income tax should not “yield” “bookkeeping” and the issuance of numbered invoices, the situation is still as follows: DETERMINATION OF ANNUAL Lump sum INCOME WHAT’S THE NEWS? The form of records is also prescribed by the new Ordinance. Based on these records, the taxpayer submits to the competent branch office of the Tax Administration the calculation of the membership fee to the tourist board. There is only a provision according to which in exceptional cases the representative body of the local self-government can make a decision on the amount of the flat tax according to the streets of the settlement and as a rule makes a decision for the area of ​​the settlement. Regardless of the fact that the competent State Administration Office ex officio sends a copy of the decision on approval to the competent branch of the Tax Administration, if you do not send the same at least eight days before you charge for the first service, you can expect to issue an income tax decision in the amount of 750,00, XNUMX kn per bed or accommodation unit in the camp and the facility for Robinson tourism. The number of beds and accommodation units is determined on the basis of a decision of the competent office on the approval for the provision of catering services in the household or a decision on meeting the requirements for a special standard on a family farm. Prior to the enactment of the Act itself, and then the Ordinance, no research was conducted on average prices and incomes by types of tourist places (large cities, small towns, coastal and island bathing places, continental tourist places in the mountains, in the vicinity of large cities, in rural plains ends, etc.) as well as the structure of expenditures in relation to revenues by certain types of services. The tourist tax is also paid by the taxpayer according to the place of residence or usual abode. HOW IS THE NUMBER OF BEDS AND ACCOMMODATION UNITS DETERMINED? The annual flat income tax is determined by a decision issued by the competent branch office of the Tax Administration office according to the residence or usual abode of the taxpayer. Article 87, paragraph 4: “The application shall be submitted within eight days from the beginning of performing the activity, from the day of submitting a written request for the transition to the determination of lump sum income or the transition to withholding taxation, ie the beginning of earnings.” According to the interpretation of the Ordinance, the taxpayer is obliged to submit the application to the branch office of the Tax Administration competent according to the place of residence or usual residence, after receiving the decision on approval. At the same time, the body responsible for issuing the approval decision has the same obligation. This also applies to any change in business. The taxpayer must issue an invoice for the service to the guest, which must contain the name and surname, residence, date of issue, invoice number, name and surname / name of the person to whom the service was provided, the price of the service and one copy of the invoice must be kept with records on traffic. All issued invoices must be recorded in this record on an up-to-date basis, every day. ONE INTERESTING THING FOR THE END INCOME TAX LAW “Annual flat-rate income tax and surtax on income tax shall be paid quarterly, until the end of each quarter, in the amount of annual flat-rate income tax and surtax on income tax, in proportion to the number of quarters for which the liability is determined. “(Article 12) It should be taken into account that the Decision of the representative body of the local self-government for 2019 must be submitted to the Regional Office of the Tax Administration no later than February 15, 2019. The decision for 2020 and all subsequent years can wait until December 15.12, each year. The decision on the amount of the flat tax is made by the representative body of the local self-government unit in whose territory the activity is performed regardless of the residence or usual residence of the taxpayer. The first news is that the name of the Rulebook has been shortened, so there is hope that it will be remembered. Another novelty is that the Ministry of Finance no longer makes a decision on the amount of the flat-rate tax, which has so far been harmonized with the decision of the Government of the Republic of Croatia on the amount of the flat-rate sojourn tax. From now on, the height is determined by the representative bodies of the local self-government unit (councils of municipalities and cities). If, on the other hand, some local self-governments do not make this decision within the set deadline “by force of law”, taxpayers who perform activities in that local self-government unit will receive decisions of HRK 750,00 per bed or accommodation unit in the camp and Robinson tourism facility. So everything is left to the “discretionary proposal within the given framework” and the will of the majority of the representative body to accept such a proposal.
