US Supreme Court ruling on mortgage-interest deduction

The Supreme Court has ruled that a Florida man can keep a mortgage interest deduction if he pays the mortgage off.

Key points:The court found that the law exempts the mortgage interest tax from the federal income taxThe court said it would not apply to homeowners who have a mortgage on their homeA Florida man who owes about $10,000 on his mortgage can keep the deductionA judge ruled that the mortgage deduction should not be limited to homeowners with mortgages on their homesA state appeals court had ruled that Florida’s mortgage- interest deduction should be available to homeowners that had mortgages on the property, as well as renters.

“It is not fair that the taxpayer should be forced to take the deduction for the rest of the taxpayer’s life in order to live a life that is as comfortable as possible,” Chief Justice Mary Roberts wrote in the ruling.

“If this is the case, the taxpayer has no choice but to pay the mortgage.”

The ruling comes after Florida’s governor signed a bill in April allowing residents of Florida to deduct mortgage interest from their taxes, in a move to allow the state to take in more money.

A spokeswoman for Gov.

Rick Scott said the state would continue to fight the ruling, but said the tax exemption would not be available for anyone.

The decision could lead to further court challenges.

A mortgage interest-deduction law is the biggest source of state income tax in the US, with about $1.3tn of property taxes collected annually.

In March, a Florida court upheld the state’s law, saying that it would be “an abuse of power” to deny the deduction to residents of a state that does not levy property taxes.

The Florida case is one of a number of recent court decisions that have extended the tax-exemption to homeowners.

The ruling also found that Florida has no right to deny its residents the mortgage tax deduction, as a condition of receiving federal aid, because the state is in a “loose fiscal position” as a result of the recession.

In a statement on Friday, the Florida attorney general said that Florida had “done nothing wrong” and said the ruling was a victory for Floridians who were struggling to make ends meet after the recession took its toll.

“Our legal fight is far from over,” Scott said in a statement.

“We have always believed that our state tax system should be fair and not discriminatory to any one group or group of Floridans.”

New law aims to improve insurance coverage for women, says governor

Governor Mary Fallin, who is seeking a second term in office, said Friday she is seeking to improve access to health insurance by ensuring that women receive adequate health coverage, and encouraging employers to offer coverage to their female employees.

The bill, known as the Healthy Michigan Plan, aims to make health coverage for Michigan women more affordable and accessible, and would provide a “fair and equitable” distribution of subsidies for women in Michigan, according to a statement from Fallin’s office.

She also is seeking an increase in funding for health insurance programs and to allow employers to hire women, according the statement.

The Healthy Michigan plan would make Michigan the seventh state to guarantee full coverage to women, which falls short of a goal set by President Donald Trump’s administration in 2020.

The plan, which would cost $1.3 billion, is expected to reach the governor’s desk next week.

A recent state-wide survey found that just under 70 percent of women who work in the state have access to coverage.

About 80 percent of all women in the U.S. live in a state with comprehensive health insurance coverage, according a Kaiser Family Foundation report released in April.

A federal judge ordered Michigan to begin enrolling women in state health insurance plans starting Jan. 1, 2018.

The Michigan House approved the bill on Thursday, but the Senate failed to act on the legislation.

The measure would create a “new and comprehensive state health plan” that would provide coverage for health care, education, home and community care, dental care, mental health, and emergency and life support services, according Fallin.

The legislation would allow women to receive coverage in addition to their current coverage under the existing state plan.

The governor has proposed raising the age of eligibility for coverage from 20 to 25, allowing women to enroll in their own health plans.

She has also said that she would work to ensure that all Michigan residents have health insurance, including those who do not have insurance.

The House and Senate have both approved the measure.
