deadline date to file your taxes is tomorrow. usually the deadline is april 15th but that fell on a sunday this year. and normally the tax deadline would be pushed to the next date. all of that means you have two extra days to do your taxes. due tomorrow. tuesday april 17th and people are still going to be scrambling. for more we are joined by morgan stanley financial advisor. thank you so much for joining us today. let's start with this. does the new gop tax laws effect anything that is happening this year? >> to the at all. expect in your immediate paycheck for the current year 2018. so whatever you will get in terms of a tax refund will be as a result of 2017 prior to
the tax changes that is been made. >> i know a lot of people have been asking about that. you say invest in a mutual fund like a roth ira. why is that important at this time? >> here's what is going to happen. eight out of ten american taxpayers are going to get a tax refund 30 days from the date that they file. and it will be a check on average a little less than $3,000. so when it comes to your house, you didn't win the lottery, it's not a bonus, it's a check. and it's really your money. you gave to the government early, they paid you no interest on it, and all of a sudden you have it in the mail. so what are you going to do with it? you are going to invest in a mutual fund or spend it on your needs or wants? we want to two to vegas but we need to put new tires on our car. >> that is really what it comes down to here. >> exactly. so investing would be a good use of those funds. only one out of three people that are getting ready for
retirement center enough much for retirement. >> that is a very important distinction when you get much older. you get that large check and you really got to pay down those credit cards. a lot of people don't do it but it will help you out in the long run as well. >> our friends at the federal government are raising the short-term rates all the time. they just raised it last month. they have a couple more raises coming up. as soon as they raise the interest rates, it hits the short term rates which are the credit cards. people are paying anywhere from 16-20% on credit card debt. and we simply don't want you to do that. if you get that nice little check. >> you can wipe it out now. >> absolutely. >> all right. make a mortgage payment you said as one of the good ways. >> put money away for savings. if you have children and helping them save for college, you can pay now or pay later. it's better to have money put away now instead of occurring debt. >> also invest in furthering your career by taking a continuing education course.
>> absolutely. our whole environment now has become very technical. you have to -- you need adult learning after college. you need to take technical classes. that will help you make more money. so that is a good investment. >> it is a good investment. >> and make an extra payment on your college loan. a lot of us settle with this debt, the student loans we've had for so many years but you can make a dent by using this money to put toward that. >> do it now or do it later. just like your house payment. if you can make an extra payment in there, it will help you down the road. when that payment stops and you want to retire, you try to eliminate debt. >> also increase that contribution to 401k. >> you cannot put enough tax deferred money. if you happen to have a 401k plan, you want to max it out. you get the time value of money doubling over a period of time. earlier you can do it, the less you have to put away. the older you are, you have to put more money away. >> so with all of that said,
this is all great advice, if you really want to go to vegas, what would you do when you get that money? you set a sliver aside. how do you fit that in? >> when you get that check in the mail, i want you to take it and put it under your mattress for two days. let it sit there. and you think about what is the most important thing to you. think about your needs. if you have taken care of your needs, let's go to vegas. >> that is a great advice. let it simmer for a little bit before you figure out. by the way, the irs processes 79 million total refunds averaging $2900. thank you so much for giving us insight into what we do. >> we are looking forward to that check. >> we are still looking forward to it. thank you so much. a group of protesters gathered in front of a philadelphia starbucks for a second day after the controversial arrest of two african american men there last
week. about two dozen people spoke and sang. they are calling for the firing of the manager that called police when he saw two black men sitting in the shop and didn't order anything. the video shows officers leading the two men away in handcuffs. they were held for eight hours before being released without any charges. the two men said they were there waiting for a real estate developer to join them for a business meeting. the ceo of starbucks says the arrests were rep hencable and apologized. he is setting up a meeting with the two men later this week. >> a massive outpouring of support for an ailing former first lady. a look at how people are praising barbara bush. >> the trump administration is signaling its repaired to remain military involved in syria. i'm jennifer griffin at the pentagon. i have the details coming up. you could save energy
by living off the grid. completely. or... just set the washing machine to cold. do your thing. with energy upgrade california. president trump called the first round of strikes of success in syria. there is a new round of controversy.>> reporter: airstrikes were pounding targets in syria over the weekend. it is in retaliation for chemical attacks. the head -- white house is
hinting there could be more military action to come. >> what the president has said is that he wants our troops to come home. he wants the mission to be accomplished as it relates to the feeding and crushing. until then we will accomplish what he wants. many are dead set against the military involvement in syria calling on the president to consult congress for new authorization before conducting any more airstrikes. >> you heard the president say i'm going to make you pay a big price. you are an animal. a military strike did not change his life and all. >> reporter: the white house is putting much of the blade on -- blame on russia. we saw what happened with the russian reset. we saw the redline, this is the president who doesn't take action.
>> tim kane has offered a bipartisan bill providing authorization for the use of military force in syria. it is unclear when lawmakers will consider it. at the pentagon, fox news. from worldly conflict we are joined by doctor stevens illness. thank you for joining us. we heard in that report the white house is hinting that there could be more tax. the chemical weapons team was kept from an attack side. could this be gearing up for another strike? >> yes. legally, it would not justify the airstrike.
the airstrikes on friday were not legal according to international law. there are questions like, was it legal constitutionally? >> was this question when the president did this last year when he ordered airstrikes in syria. what is really the ruling body year that says these airstrikes are allowed. >> it must be authorized by the un security council. one could argue that given the russian blocking of the united nations resolution that could make a moral case of using these kinds of airstrikes. let's recall that the united states is actually vetoing far more resolutions than russia has and the soviet union before it. if you go back through the past
50 years, that could establish a troubling precedents. there are new sanctions on russia over syria. good this really deepen how we interact with this conflict with syria? >> certainly. the united states and nations have the right to place sanctions against governments that we feel are threatening international peace through supporting a criminal regime such as a five and the like. that would add to a growing list of disputes between the two nations. for better or worse russia is a world power. they need to be brought in if there is going to be a negotiated line with syria.
there needs to be some combination to put pressure on one hand and an incentive for cooperation on the other. >> we had airstrikes from submarines and battleships. we also have two dozen men on the ground battling isis. will this bring us into a larger conflict? that is what members of congress are concerned about. will this cause a problem if we continue to carry out such strife and also have the military presence on the ground? >> i find it fascinating that you have republicans and democrats who are raising concerns about the constitutionality of it. president trump argued strongly when obama was considering airstrikes against syria back in 2011.
he better not go ahead and bomb without authorization from congress. indeed, obama sought authorization. it appeared that he was not going to get that kind of majority support needed. that is why they went to the negotiation route. that was unsuccessful. of the idea that trump is tough because he went ahead without congressional approval, this is ingenuous. putting that aside, whether or not the united states should have troops in there or we engage in bombing should be something that has the approval of congress. it is hard to find a justification for a unilateral executive action. >> we will see how that turns out. doctor stevens, thank you. >> my pleasure.
barbara bush is in failing health and will not seek further medical treatment. a spokesperson would not elaborate on the health problems. since the announcement was made over her health, there has been an outpouring of support. kelly has the details. >> reporter: barbara bush is in failing health. the 92-year-old was admitted to the hospital last week she has recently suffered from congestive heart failure and other illnesses. she has refused further medical treatment and is back at home in texas with her family. her focus now is on comfort care. >> get better mrs. busch. we know you will. we are all behind you. -- >> karen and i are praying for barbara bush and the entire family. >> she is an example.
everybody faces decline. some people do gracefully. she is one of them. >> bush's health has been on the mind of those going to the smithsonian. the dress she wore to her husband's inauguration is on display there. there is video from that date nearly 30 goat -- years ago. >> she was right. they looked up to her for a lot. >> she campaigned for jeb bush and the 22nd -- 2016 race. they did a coin toss for last year super bowl. the first lady historian is hoping to see more barbara bush in the years to come. >> she is a very strong lady and she has a strong will. if anyone can conquer any type of ailment and health issue, it would be barbara bush. >> she is the only living wife of one former president and the

$300 a square foot. >> i guess it varies on what plan you choose? >> exactly. and the type of materials. if you want a high-end countertop or appliances, the cost will increase. >> you have plans to build more in that area? >> we do. we have a few in coffee park and then in some surrounding areas that were lost as well. we build throughout california. our focus and efforts are on the community here now. we have about 15 homeowners that we are in contract to rebuild their home and we were working with 30 right now. we really wish we could out more. that is where we stand today. >> how long does it take to build a home like this? >> speed is the biggest advantage. once the foundation is poured it takes three to four months
