While it appears extremely likely that those in power will take some action, uncertainty still abounds about precisely what they will do. The entire situation, born in a politically charged atmosphere, is almost certain to remain a partisan issue.

Today, in the pages of this Business section, we are publishing information from The Associated Press that should help our readers understand some of the potential implications of the fiscal cliff.

I'm also working on a story to run later in The Oklahoman and on NewsOK.com that I hope will offer some insight on what the average taxpayer should be considering or doing in anticipation of a tax season filled with more doubt than perhaps any before.

I'd love to hear from some of you on your thoughts about what this might mean for you, what if anything you might be doing about it, and your general reaction to the situation. I plan to include some of your input in that future article.

Let me hear from you on this topic.

Please drop me a line at dmecoy@opubco.com.
