Well you know what you may not return to the right person and on the phone with us is came BC's Moneyline specialist. Peter -- and you can you can catch Peter show Saturdays from one to three right here and came easy. -- I I collier the taxman -- you're the man to save us all nice to have you Michelle. You know. Let it be with you because obviously it's that time of the year where individuals are going -- you said nuts trying to figure out what to do -- Jason -- We should do we work out a deal that will will put Peter on our show and he'll do my taxes is that he's got a -- That's illegal what I just get -- -- -- out of I'm -- Peter we'll look at the internal revenue -- it's a hundred years old what's your response good bad ugly you know. Don't hold dog down my plans now. Well today as you indicated we celebrated and I don't like to call the celebration commenced -- -- event -- gears of taxation. 1913. Only had sixty commandments. To the government there and at the bottom line is we now tax income it's -- get worse and worse and I mean every year it's another change it's another headache. And to be honest with cabin in this business probably twice as many years you our goal to be again and -- subpoenaed to headache they internal revenue code and are referred to that as the internal revenue code is -- net. It's it's it really is not always -- -- -- programs even the lord in this most income wisdom could not come up with anything more stupid and ridiculous and the internal revenue code. And every year they all add something to it how do you keep it all straight pretty. Difficult to do really difficult internal revenue code is about 80000. Pages long Bob -- at million words. Constantly changing tax cases in regulations coming up literally every single day that's what people get confused. If they knew all the things that they could do all within the law. They would -- left tackle but it's too complicated and you go by the -- same it's you take the same situation attend from prepares to propagate twelve different -- Yeah I was gonna ask you them because I was in your office and you and I were talking about that. You know depending on who's doing your taxes we always assumed that everybody that's doing that news everything that's going on hot or -- and that's. Like that -- the page you're right now is a -- isn't. No in fact is rarely the case I don't care where you go. It's you know like everything else in life you learn by the number of years you're involved with the and to the extent that you laugh or don't want something. You learn by doing practical things and you gotta keep up with the changed since they're constantly -- like for example this past year. We had a major tax bill went was enacted. A year ago and talked about January the first. A year ago if you recall falling off a cliff you remember that don't January 1 we got this tax bill. And -- both years and it had a major effect in the current year. So but there are a lot of good strategies and bow out of summarize let say it's just real quick. In my opinion. We should get rid of this internal revenue code that the honestly -- we had a woman commissioner. A great commission the first one with commissioner ever pretty surely Peters yes I can tell you that this you know a woman definitely that's always better than me. By god. You didn't look that is why we -- -- -- yeah yeah total agreement here so are you let. Are you had to shut the Charlie creation basically -- boss says when it comes to the working our taxation system I've seen the ball. And that experience -- let me just conclusion that we should repeal. The internal revenue could put the commissioner of the internal revenue code after she's. After she's of course retired Washington that they were replacing the current system which groups the Lou the FR percent. Right -- with the flat tax so is Steve Forbes is. Did he have the right idea. No I don't think so at all I think the flag -- -- government it's Phillips. At the flat tax. And that's still requires Internal Revenue Service I'm a believer and a lot of demand in the nation's economists say the same thing in -- consumption tax. You do. When you gonna pay that tax not to. The internal revenue code deciding when you should pay as you spend money you pay taxes. In effect it's printing of clinical that this storm -- product you pay sales taxes do you ever look at that sales tax figure violation particular items. Yeah very -- Yeah Peter Neumann is our guest Peter -- tax time is coming -- the clock is ticking are -- some strategies right now that we should be doing that perhaps were not. Well absolutely and let's first start with senior citizens. One of the most frequently missed tax benefit. That accrues to senior citizens is -- -- but it's made by both Missouri is an instance. And it doesn't even -- in reality it's filing an income tax return and not be required -- which you can get money back immediately is simple example. In this state of Kenyans we have the -- K 48 each. And basically it's sense that anybody. Who has -- -- roughly 33000. Dollars of income which includes 50% of -- security not all -- Is entitled to a 750 dollar rebate from the state of kicking into irrespective. -- whether they paid into the state or not we got a lot of seniors especially generally speaking those in long term care facilities that don't have a lot of income. And they never asked for this money. I see all the power Powell. Senior do you have to be. Yeah. And not really too much aged 65 or older and stated teams in the state of Missouri it's 65 years of age and older I'm. -- -- you made the right move for. Us. But truly in in this state as Missouri. We're talking 65 years and age. In the state of Missouri you can either -- overhaul will be renting either way the state of Kenyans he must inspect -- home. So in the state of Missouri. You can and income as a single individual -- 30000 dollars. As an older he could get up to 11100. Dollars. Barack from the state of -- it's estimated 60%. Of all individuals who qualify. Never ever ask for that money back. Well.

What you dead along with bill done and along with Don hall back in the day were talking in the 1980s was to develop. On a minority supplier development council. Why was it important and why was it important at that time for Kansas City. Come back with -- in 1986. At that time minority companies did not receive business from majority come these minorities. Sold to minorities but. Around the country there was a strong movement among manners. He -- city governments to get mainstream companies to -- from minorities simply because that would improve the economic health of the metropolitan area. And let me add. At that time my first cousin Dick Berkeley was -- Kansas City. He was a strong voice in the US conference of mayors to increase purchases from Lima -- minorities. Thus he ordered BCA strong movement.

And they were reluctant change and for good reason for supplier does not deliver a quality product. On time a company's operations could shut down for us. There is a logical reason to be concerned about changing suppliers so. When we had to do those of us that -- minority supplier development council was to column every medium and large sized company in Kansas City. Actually go and see them do -- to accomplish that someone had to go to each company. Sit down with the purchasing personnel and ask if they -- -- to buy from a from a minority. Greg baker. Executive director of the minority supplier development council and Marilu are -- executive assistant started calling on companies. And then. They produce for each call -- call report. Every Monday morning we got together the three of us. To determine what the attitude was -- that company. If the finding was that the purchasing people were reluctant to deal with minorities then. I call the Chief Executive Officer. Explain what we were attempting to do and asked that he sit down with the head of purchasing -- explained that the company does not discriminate. And minority vendors should be given an opportunity. You asked the question. Was there -- I am pleased to report that not a single CEO. Stiff farming there was total cooperation. Re surprised I thought did you expect a little bit of -- push back. They sure did not a and I think about how remarkable it is. I'm not sure in this day and age you can correct me if I'm wrong I'm wrong many times just on the show. It's the people of your caliber. Yours and -- -- seniors and Donald Paul would have taken that kind of time to do that. What are those people in existence in our community today. I'm talking about upper tier CEOs. Yes I believe they're very definitely. On hand and willing to be helpful in the community. I find that there is a real interest in community involvement by CEOs and top executives. Just as there are by so many other people him every company. And in those companies were that is encouraged and there are a number of companies where there are. We see that kind of thing that we visions and then actually carried out in the 1980s. If there's one thing -- and you've asked us to call you -- That you are unhappy about in this day and age what kind of a change would you like to -- not just in Kansas City but in people's mindset. The problem that so many of us face is that we are so concerned about what's happening in Washington DC. If you -- to local answer I don't have a local problem. I think every one know every business executive I talked to and I talked to them around the country. They are very concerned about gridlock in Washington -- that means to business for the future. I would concur in and so -- going to be more difficult as we go along to find people willing to take that time to fill those offices because everybody's got a little skeleton in their closet in the media anymore. Isn't. Pretty happy to go find out what is ha INN broadcast it to every once. Congratulations again -- got a question you know just -- interested to see where we started 28 years ago with this whole process. What has that -- the impact economically on the community over that twenty. Years. I'm so glad you asked that question. Throw -- 98 from 28 years ago 1986. When we were practically zero. And the amount of money that was being spent with minority companies today. It is a 162. Million dollars while that was the report for 2013. And incidentally. That is just those companies that report there -- few companies which do not for various reasons so it's over 162. Million dollars today. That minorities. Are receiving from majority companies. That is -- something to be proud absolutely what a legacy.
