The Decisive Moment(s or periods) in the Application of Income Tax Rules and the Importance of Events Thereafter – a Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish Perspective and Comparison

, those two positions should in principle be answered in the light of the same arguments. 3.2 On Objective and Subjective Necessary Conditions in Relation to Subsequent Information What significance events after the decisive moment have for the assessment of the situation at the decisive moment, and what events that are to be taken into account, may vary depending on what, according to the respective tax rules, should have been the case (the necessary conditions). Therefore, in order to win full precision in handling the temporal issues regarding tax law

Secularizing a Religious Legal System: Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction in Early Eighteenth Century England

express mention of those two by name, yet I believe they are seldom found among the crimes presented: For what reason I cannot conceive, unless it be, that the laws of the state have appointed temporal penalties for them. But as there is nothing in those laws that has taken away the authority of the Church, so is there no cause why the exercise of that authority in these particulars should be discontinued; at least, till we see the temporal laws executed with greater zeal and better effect.

Cleaning the Muck of Ages from the Windows into the Soul of Tax

. There is also a temporal dimension in tax. Bracket creep, when increases in wage move workers into higher marginal tax rates, is an important part of any slow, ongoing increased taxation on workers and possibly, depending on the level of wage increases, decreasing or helping to decrease after tax living standards, too. The introduction of the GST in Australia from 1 July, 2000, is a case in point. It was accompanied by income tax cuts whose value was eroded over time through bracket creep. One estimate is that by 2005/2006, bracket creep had clawed back $3.8 billion

Posner’s Folly: The End of Legal Pragmatism and Coercion’s Clarity

reasonable definition of “political,” but I mean it to refer to the structures, concepts, and authorities ultimately responsible for the socially-legitimated governance of temporal human societies. The ends of political positive law, i.e. law promulgated by legal authorities designated as such by a polity, necessarily involve the regulation of subjects’ actions through the means of coercive rules and commands meant to affect subjects’ practical decision-making. The regulatory end remains necessary even if understood to be a means to a further end, such as justice or

Sentencing Disparities

the outcome not occurring. The equation represents the odds of the outcome. At the outset of this study, it was considered that a three-level model might be appropriate considering district courts are nested within the higher level circuit courts of appeal and/or within years, with the latter perhaps accounting for changes in sentencing patterns over time and using annual time periods as the temporal division. A few statistical notes should be briefly mentioned before addressing the models. The software utilized for the study presented herein, including the
