Note to removal defense lawyers. Bond approved last Tuesday, one week before today’s merits hearing. Client couldn’t get out of jail because bond payments in central Ohio can only be made on Tuesday and Thursday. Luckily, Judge continued hearing so client can be placed on non-detained docket. Lesson is to know when bond can be paid in your area to try to avoid future problems.

Question, please. I started receiving the advance child tax credit last month. I’m eligible since I filed married filing jointly in 2020, but was the only one working.

Not so clear to me based on IRS guidance.
