Our income tax system purports to be progressive. Yet one of the biggest tax breaks, the mortgage interest deduction, is anything but. This deduction allows homeowners to deduct mortgage interest payments on both a principal residence and one vacation property to reduce their income taxes due.

A taxpayer can move and claim the primary-residence exclusion every two years if living in an area where home prices are rising
Standard filtration or dialysis membranes - even when used with high-volume HF - have demonstrated only limited effectiveness in removing cytokines, the vast majority of which are water-soluble and of mid-range molecular weight (5 to 51 kDa) . This is most likely attributable to the limited pore size of standard blood purification membranes. Recently, high cutoff (HCO) membranes with moderately larger pore sizes have been developed and found to have greater cytokine removal capacity compared with
