When is kidnapping a federal crime?

Kidnapping is a crime that can be confusing when it comes to prosecution. While local or state authorities may take charge and even apprehend the suspect, the actual crime may end up being federal and federal law enforcement may step in. There are specific situations where a kidnapping becomes a federal crime. 

Tax deductions and tax credits

Certainly the topic of income tax has been a major one in the news as of late with Congress working hard to get a new tax bill passed before it takes the winter holiday break. Many people in Minnesota are understandably curious to learn more about how the new guidelines may affect them and their ability to deduct some expenses from their taxes or to claim certain tax credits. Before learning about the specific details, however, it is important to be educated about the difference between tax deductions and tax credits.

The current tax system in the United States is set up to allow consumers the ability to deduct some things from their tax bill. This reflects the reality that people in Minnesota and around the nation logically want and need to seek opportunities to reduce their tax burden and keep more of the money they earn for themselves. However, there may be at times a fine line between what is considered a legal way of reducing tax debt and what is considered tax fraud.

Does law enforcement really use social media?

You may have heard of law enforcement using social media to catch criminals, but does this really happen? Could your local Minnesota law enforcement be looking at what you post on social media to see if you are committing crimes? According to PoliceOne.com, it is true that law enforcement does use social media to assist with finding criminals. It is not just something you see on TV and in the movies.
