The Brooklyn based fashion designer born to Grenadian parents, carved her space in the luxury fashion industry, a sector which in the past has largely excluded women of African descent. Nearly 2 years of behind the scenes work by Noel, her team and officials from the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA), has led to Grenada being featured in the black-owned magazine. Guided by her mantra “Eat well, travel often and dress to inspire!” Noel said she grew up in a strict entrepreneurial household, the eldest of her brother and 2 sisters. She was heavily inspired to pursue a career in the fashion industry influenced by her mother who worked in a clothing factory in Manhattan after immigrating from Grenada.

Weekly Report from Washington, D.C.

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportCongress began its Independent Day recess and lawmakers are expected to return after the July 4 holiday for a short work period before recessing again from July 16 to September 15. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) reported that the IRS could improve the process through which it evaluates the accuracy of tax returns prepared through its Volunteer Program sites. The Service issued final regulations for country-by-country reporting. It also modified its procedures for the determination letter program for qualified plans.CongressHouse Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Tex., and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany, R-La., sent Treasury Secretary Jack Lew a letter on June 28 expressing collective GOP concerns over proposed debt-equity regulations under Code Sec. 385 (NPRM REG-108060-15, I.R.B. 2016-17, 636) (TAXDAY, 2016/06/29, C.1). All Republican members of the Ways and Means Committee signed the letter. Further, Joint Committee on Taxation Chairman Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, and Vice Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Tex., announced on June 29 that the committee will hold a bipartisan, bicameral meeting with Mark Mazur, assistant secretary of the Treasury for Tax Policy, and Robert Stack, deputy assistant secretary for International Tax Affairs, on July 6 to discuss the Treasury’s proposed regulations.TreasurySemiannual Report.

No. 2016-40-045; TAXDAY, 2016/06/30, T.2). Although TIGTA’s program review found that 95 percent of a statistically valid sample of 44 returns were accurately prepared by the volunteers, it also found that proper procedures to evaluate performance were not being followed.BSA Violation Penalty. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has issued regulations under the Bank Secrecy Act adjusting the maximum amount or range of certain civil monetary penalties within its jurisdiction to account for inflation (RIN 1506-AB33; TAXDAY, 2016/06/30, T.1).

Proc. 2016-37, TAXDAY, 2016/06/30, I.3).
