Conferences tend to have a natural lifespan, and LeWeb had run its course. Despite LeWeb’s demise, Costantini’s inbox was crammed full of invitations to tech conferences sprouting up across Europe. The startup scene was surging, and suddenly every corner of the continent was putting together a conference.

By Steve Bellone In the coming weeks, tax reform is likely to be one of the most hotly debated issues across the country. I would normally welcome such a discussion if it meant the opportunity to have a conversation on solutions to lower taxes and simplify a federal tax code for those who need it most. Unfortunately, our new U.S. Treasury Secretary and the administration have taken a radically different approach: Floating a reckless proposal to eliminate the federal mortgage interest deduction. This ill-conceived idea under the guise of tax reform would ironically increase taxes on every Long Island homeowner across the board – especially the middle class.

Major changes coming to how your credit score is calculated

The math behind your credit score is getting an overhaul, with changes big enough that they might alter the behavior of both cautious spenders as well as riskier borrowers. Most notably for those with high scores: Abiding by the golden rule of “don’t close your credit card accounts” may now hurt your standing. On the other side, those with low scores may benefit from the removal of civil judgments, medical debts and tax liens as factors. Beyond determining whether someone gets approved for a credit card, a credit score can affect what interest rate and what spending limit are offered. The new method is being implemented later this year by VantageScore, a company created by the credit bureaus Experian, TransUnio... Read More

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has reported earning nearly $418,000 on his federal tax return for tax year 2016, more than half of which was bolstered by a bump in royalty payments from his 2014 memoir. The Democratic governor made his tax returns available to journalists Tuesday afternoon showing about $218,000 in earnings from the book, “All Things Possible,” along with $168,000 from his gubernatorial salary and some investment income. The book earnings are a sharp contrast to last year, when Cuomo did not declare any book payments. The previous year he earned just under $377,000 from the memoir. Spokesman Rich Azzopardi said payments are based on a contractual agreement with publisher HarperCollins. This year’s returns s... Read More
