LOS ANGELES (KABC) — All around Southern California, there are lots of options if you are looking for a safe and easy getaway: book a staycation! There’s a new program in Los Angeles that aims to help the economy, while also saving you some money.

And that’s the goal, of course safely during the pandemic.

Over the last 26 years, “Discover Oklahoma” has become a popular syndicated television show throughout the state.

During that time frame, it has occasionally spotlighted businesses and other attractions in the Bryan County area for feature stories on the weekly 30-minute program, which is produced by the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.

That hiatus came to an end last week when a crew from the show selected Durant to tape their first feature segment in months. It will air later this fall when new programming begins.

1. Social Security benefits

Social Security benefits aren’t taxed for every retiree, but around 50% of seniors pay federal income tax on them. And more will in the future since the income threshold at which benefits become taxable isn’t indexed to inflation.

Retirees could owe federal tax on up to 50% of benefits once their countable income hits $25,000 as a single filer or $32,000 as a married joint filer. Once countable income reaches $34,000 for single filers or $44,000 for married joint filers, up to 85% of benefits will become subject to federal tax. Countable income is defined to include half of all Social Security income along with all other taxable income and
