New Rules For Taxing Pass-Through Income
March 2018 by Mark E. Battersby
...the tax rate for an incorporated, small-scale mine or mining-related business will be reduced from the former 35 percent rate to 21 percent for the 2018 tax year and thereafter.
...frankly, the question is being asked, "How in the world could otherwise rational people even consider investments in the yellow in the yellow and white metals?"
…At present we may be entering a period of relative stability on many economic fronts and, therefore, our focus is now trending more toward social upheaval and the resultant increase in tensions as the prime movers for the precious metals.
Although there is no direct connection between the price of lumber and the precious metals, there is an important indirect one due to the importance of the housing market to overall economic activity.
As an employer, every mining operation, large or small, is responsible for protecting the safety and health of its employees. Safety is also good business. An effective safety and health program can save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested. It’s the right thing to do, and doing it right pays off in lower costs, increased productivity, and higher employee morale.
