Singing Dog Vanilla Introduces Organic Double Strength Pure Vanilla Extract for the home user

EUGENE, Ore. -- Singing Dog Vanilla is introducing an Organic Double Strength Pure Vanilla Extract to the retail market for use in making ice cream and boosting the vanilla flavor in baked goods. Until this launch, Singing Dog Vanilla's double strength vanilla extract was only available in commercial volumes for ice cream manufacturers and large food manufacturers.

The company decided to release a 4-ounce retail version of their double strength vanilla extract after it was recommended by Tyler Malek in his new book "Salt & Straw Ice Cream Cookbook" https://saltandstraw.com/products/ice-cream-cookbook. When homemade ice cream fans read the book, they started emailing and calling Singing Dog Vanilla asking to purchase their double strength vanilla extract. In response, they quickly made it available on their website with a plain-white label and then went to work preparing for a proper launch.

"We are grateful to the Salt & Straw folks for mentioning us in their book. It was a nice surprise when people started calling," said Marty Parisien, Co-founder of Singing Dog Vanilla. "We had to move quickly to get this product on the market because of the demand from fans of the book."

Standard single strength vanilla extracts, also called single-fold, are made with 13.35 oz of vanilla beans per gallon of 35% alcohol. Double-Fold vanilla is preferred by ice cream manufactures because it has twice the vanilla beans within the same 35% alcohol, thus reducing the amount of liquid per ice cream batch.

For more information about Singing Dog Vanilla's Organic Double Strength Pure Vanilla Extract, visit: https://www.singingdogvanilla.com/product/double-strength-vanilla-extract/

About Singing Dog Vanilla:

Founded on April Fool's Day in 2004, Singing Dog Vanilla has offices in Eugene, Oregon and Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. They partner with over 400 vanilla-growing families in Indonesia to bring organic vanilla products to food manufacturers, bakeries, scoop shops, restaurants, and breweries. Singing Dog Vanilla also has a full line of retail products sold in natural grocery stores across the USA and internationally. Profits are shared with their vanilla farmers and employees.

The Singing Dog Vanilla motto is "Silly Name ... Serious Vanilla."

SuiteAmerica Named Move For Hunger 2020 Corporate Housing Company Of The Year

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. -- During the 2020 CHPA Tower of Excellence Awards, SuiteAmerica was named Move For Hunger's 2020 Corporate Housing Company of the Year. SuiteAmerica considers it a great honor and is deeply humbled to be able to provide for those in need.

SuiteAmerica's Move For Hunger Coordinator, Michael James, says, "We are so proud and honored to have received this award again from Move for Hunger! While 2020 caused us to not be able to do typical in-person food drives, our team was still able to come together virtually and exceeded our fundraising goal during Hunger Action Month."

SuiteAmerica has been partnered with Move For Hunger since Move For Hunger started in 2014. Move For Hunger is a nonprofit dedicated to reducing food waste and fighting hunger. Their goal is to eliminate food waste during the relocation process. The Move For Hunger team will pick up any unopened, nonperishable food items and deliver them to a local food pantry.

Over 50 million Americans face hunger every day, including one in four children. The COVID-19 Pandemic has only worsened food insecurity in the United States. In 2020, over 3.7 million pounds of food were donated to food banks, making 2020 Move For Hunger's most impactful year to date.

"SuiteAmerica would also like to send a big thank you to all of our fellow corporate housing companies that help champion Move For Hunger's mission every year. We look forward to collecting even more donations in 2021 and continuing to raise awareness about food insecurity," says James.

Newly-Passed Restaurant Revitalization Fund and Restaurant Tax Relief Strategies by Ace Plus Tax Resolution

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- James Cha, a CPA and a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist from Ace Plus Tax Resolution, underlines the newly enacted restaurant revitalization fund, recent tax challenges the restaurant industry is facing, and tax relief strategies.

Restaurant Revitalization Fund and Grants

Along with small and medium enterprises, the restaurant industry has also been severely impacted by the pandemic. However, the governments have been trying to ensure that tax reliefs are provided to help the restaurant industry. This has been effectively encapsulated in the Restaurant Revitalization Act signed on March 11. Certified Tax Resolution Specialist James from Ace Plus Tax Resolution recommends that "restaurant owners that are financially struggling must strategize and receive the full benefit of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund."

$5 billion of the fund will be available to eligible restaurants with gross receipts during 2019 of $500,000 or less.

In addition, the crux of this particular tax relief regime provides grants to restaurant applicants of up to $10 million. This is mainly to compensate them for the pandemic-related revenue loss. In this aspect, all restaurants are declared as eligible for the program, with some exceptions, like restaurants that are operated by a state or a local government or are owned by a publicly-traded company. However, it is to be noted that the grant that would be awarded to the entity is not supposed to exceed an aggregate of $10 million and should be limited to $5 million per physical location.

The grant amount will be based on the pandemic-related revenue loss. If the entity was in business for 2019, either entirely or partially, the loss is calculated as the 2020 average monthly gross receipts multiplied by 12, subtracted from 2019 average monthly gross receipts multiplied by 12. A different calculation method is to be applied if the business newly opened anytime between January 1, 2020, and the enactment date of the bill, March 11, 2021. The grant will be reduced by the 7(a) SBA loans received, including PPP loans.

Under this particular act, there are certain expenses that are eligible for restaurants. They mainly include payroll costs, paid sick leaves, mortgage, rent and utilities, maintenance, supplies, food and beverage expenses, operational expenses, and any other expenses SBA deemed essential. In the same manner, the grant is supposed to be used for expenses that fall within the covered period between February 15, 2020, and December 31, 2021.

Taxability

Restaurant Revitalization Grants that are received are not subject to income tax. In the same manner, the exclusion will not result in the denial of a deduction reduction of tax attributes or a denial of increase in basis. This implies that these businesses are not supposed to include the grant amount as a gross income in the tax return.

Tax Problems for Restaurant Owners

James denotes, "Restaurant Revitalization Grant has been a much-needed life support for the troubled industry. Followed by the pandemic, the restaurant industry was perhaps the most impacted by lockdowns, with the ongoing burden of having to remit tax payments. Payroll taxes, for one, continue to be a pressing cause of concern for the restaurant industry".

When their business struggles, restaurant owners are tempted to use these funds to cover the business expenses. The IRS takes late payroll tax payments very seriously because it wasn't the business owners' money to begin with. If the IRS thinks that if an individual was responsible for filing or paying taxes but did not, then he or she becomes liable for the unpaid taxes.

Business owners must realize that the IRS has the power to close their business, come after the owner personally by asserting Trust Fund Recovery Penalty, levy bank accounts, or seize income sources and properties in an attempt to collect back taxes. Also, their passport may be revoked or declined to issue or renew by the U.S. Department of State.

Tax Reliefs for the Restaurant Industry

In the case where the business is approached by the IRS for back taxes, the best possible course of action might be to adopt an approach to tactfully deal with the issue, without panicking.

James believes "The best course of action is to see if they qualify for any tax relief options." However, this can only be done after delinquent tax returns have been filed and all current income tax and payroll tax deposits have been paid.

Businesses or individuals can settle their taxes for substantially less than they owe through an Offer in Compromise if they qualify. Financial inability to pay is the most common reason an Offer is accepted, but it must be supported by and verified with well-prepared financial documents and statements.

Or, through an Installment Agreement, businesses or individuals may set up an affordable payment plan to pay off the back taxes. If they qualify for a "Partial Payment" Installment, they will not be paying off the full amount, as the balance left at the end of the payment term will be forgiven. Strategizing is crucial when submitting an application in order to maximize the benefit.

Also, they may be able to halt IRS collection actions by declaring a Currently Not Collectible status. To qualify for this status, they must prove they have a dire financial situation and none to very little income. The IRS will put a pause on their attempt to collect payment until the financial situation improves.

The Final Words

The current day and age are quite challenging for almost all business owners. In this regard, it is imperative for businesses to be fully aware of all the taxes that they owe, as well as the options that are available to them. There are numerous tax relief options that are put forth by the government, but business owners should seek a certified tax relief specialist to clearly understand their options and eligibility, so that they can strategize, take full advantage, and save considerable sums of money as taxpayers.

New York City Takes ‘Closed’ Signs Down, Businesses Open Safer, Stronger

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- Hospitality businesses including dining establishments, the event industry, and the rest of New York City's businesses are not only poised for a strong comeback, it's already underway. With COVID-19 vaccinations in progress, a group of industry professionals are determined to light the way by empowering business owners and, as a result, instilling confidence in clientele. The Academy for Hospitality Arts (AHA) will be presenting on COVID-19 safety at a free virtual conference next week as a part of this mission.

"I've heard people say New York City is a ghost town right now. That could not be further from the truth," says Michael DiPeri, President and Founder of AHA. "The restaurant, hospitality and event industries have taken the lead in getting businesses back to full operating status. We've done our homework. Now we're welcoming our patrons back knowing we've dotted every i, crossed every t with regards to their safety and ours."

On Tuesday, March 16, 2021, as a part of a next-level virtual learning conference hosted by Lovegevity's E3Xperience, four speakers from the AHA will take the stage to present to an international audience of hundreds of professionals in the hospitality industry. Online attendees of the event will have an opportunity to benefit from AHA's extensive research and insightful expert knowledge for protecting themselves while getting back to serving guests safely and keeping their staff safe.

Founder Michael DiPeri, along with Karen Diperi of The Academy for Hospitality Arts (AHA), rolled up their sleeves in the midst of the pandemic to create a comprehensive blueprint for hospitality professionals to get their feet firmly on the road to reopening success. The AHA is on a mission to lead fellow business professionals through the ever-changing COVID safety protocols so they can get back to full capacity with confidence. The pair have been immersed in New York City's event and hospitality scene for more than 30 years. Now they're leveraging decades of experience to set industry standards by providing training programs and certifications, all built on extensive research and scientific data.

The AHA has recently introduced two specific programs to ensure hospitality and event professionals are ready to meet the most stringent health standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

1. COVID-19 Readiness Program (Course (CRC) for - wait staff and servers all members of the hospitlity industry.)

2. COVID Hospitality Compliance Officer (CHCO) Certification course, for management those who take a leadership role in guiding hospitality back to full capacity.

Both programs prepare hospitality professionals for:

* the increase in new daily protocols for cleaning and disinfecting

* the increase in protection of customers

* conflict resolution protocols

* identifying symptoms, isolation precautions, and much more

During the March 16 virtual conference, attendees will be able to sign up for their COVID-19 Readiness Courses with a donation to World Central Kitchen. "The Academy for Hospitality Arts is proud to partner with this organization," said Karen DePeri, Chief Marketing Officer of The AHA. "We have already raised $2500 for their cause, and will continue our fundraising efforts at the event, offering our safety courses to attendees in exchange for their donation to World Central Kitchen." They will also have the opportunity to gain preferred access to the CHCO Certification course.

Free Tickets for the immersive online experience, "The Road to ReOpening," are available through Sunday, March 14 at http://www.lovegevity.com/e3xp.

If the first full-day event in the series was any indication, it's going to be a spectacle of cutting-edge 3D technology. Guests will soak up inspiration, and take away more confidence for the future of their businesses.

"Along with the learning opportunities, it's a day of networking, socializing and an all-around good time set in the streets of New York, and attendees get to enjoy it from anywhere. We're thrilled to introduce this type of experience to the event industry. Even after the pandemic is behind us, we want to show global audiences how to bring audiences together in an exciting virtual setting," said Cho Phillips, CEO of Lovegevity and co-founder of the E3Xperience.
