On Tuesday’s Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Dr. Patrick Oliver, director of the criminal justice program at Cedarville University and a 27 year veteran of law enforcement joins them to talk about the important aspect of the hiring process and other ways to keep this type of tragedy from reoccurring.
Resetting expectations for a refund is in order this year, because changes to the tax laws are underway. On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Crown Financial Ministries CEO, Chuck Bentley joins us to share an "Ask Chuck" question he received recently about tax refunds. "We usually pay down Christmas debt with our tax refund, but I am worried we will not get as much back this year. What can we expect?" Many tax filers will be disappointed this coming year, and do not assume that last year's refund is what you will receive this year.
