World Population Day

 

Today is World Population Day

 
World Population Day (WPD) was created by the Governing Council of the United National Development Programme in 1989. The annual event raises awareness about various issues that affect us all.
 

 
Governments, businesses, organizations and individuals from all over the world will observe World Population Day by attending workshops, rallies and a variety of activities in honor of the occasion.
 
As people live longer and healthier lives, the population continues to grow and challenges also increase. Each year, WPD focuses on a specific theme. This year’s campaign, “Universal Access to Reproductive Health Services,” highlights the urgent need for reproductive health services for all women, with a goal of universal access by 2015.
 
According to WPD, reproductive health issues are the leading cause of “ill health” and death for women of child-bearing age. According to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, only 1 in 3 rural woman in developing nations receive “adequate” care during pregnancy.
 
Despite advances in medicine and technology, approximately 291,000 women will die from pregnancy-related causes in 2012. It is estimated that 80 million unintended pregnancies in developing countries will occur this year due to contraceptive failure and nonuse, resulting in 30 million unplanned births, 40 million abortions and 10 million miscarriages.

IRS Tax deadline


We have 2 extra days to file our non-Corporate tax returns.

The IRS Tax filing deadline is on Tuesday, April 17, 2012.

Federal income tax returns for 2011 taxes are due April 17, 2012, two days after the traditional tax due date of April 15. April 15 is a Sunday, so taxes are typically due on Monday, the next business day. But Monday, April 16, is Emancipation Day in Washington, D.C., so it’s considered a holiday. So Tuesday, April 17, is the big due date for 2011 taxes.

What 2011 business tax returns are due on April 17, 2012?

Tax returns for businesses that file taxes with personal returns are due in April. This includes:

・ Sole proprietors and single-member LLCs filing Schedule C along with their Form 1040
・ Partnerships and multiple-member LLCs filing partnership tax returns on Form 1065 and Schedule K-1 with their personal tax returns.

March 15 is Due Date for Corporate Returns

Corporate tax returns, including those for S Corporations, are due March 15, or the 15th day of the 3rd month after the end of the corporation’s tax year. March 15 falls on a Thursday in 2012, so no extension on this date.
