Good and bad news for consumers in 2011 | MarketWatch Personal Finance Daily

Tuesday's Personal Finance stories

By MarketWatch



Don't miss these top stories:
We all get an extra weekend to put off doing our taxes this year, the IRS announced Tuesday. I'm not sure whether that's a good or bad thing.

I'd rather just get my taxes done and out of the way early, though two things prevent that from happening in January: One, I'm a procrastinator, and two, the IRS said people who itemize can't file until mid- to late February, thanks to the Tax Relief Act lawmakers passed on Dec. 17. The IRS needs more time to tweak its processing systems.

Of course, if you're among the two-thirds of taxpayers who don't itemize, the delay may not affect you at all. Read our story for more on that.

Also, don't miss Ruth Mantell's column on some good and bad news for consumers and families in 2011. The good news includes a new food-safety bill, an extension of some unemployment benefits and greater disclosures required for a variety of consumer products.

The bad news: jobs and housing.

In other words, the scales are still tipped heavily into the negative, though if you've got a job and a house you can afford, it may not feel so bad.

Andrea Coombes , Personal Finance editor

For consumers, good and bad news coming in 2011

Even as they continue to worry about a weak housing market and anemic job growth, U.S. families can at least celebrate a new food-safety bill, extension of unemployment benefits for some jobless workers and the likelihood of greater access to information on a variety of consumer products, from toys to mortgages, in 2011.
