Monday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Monday’s business headlines with Jane King.

Tax season starts today

IRS workers are coming back to work after the government shutdown. It could be a complicated season though.

In addition to the backlog of cases that need to be addressed, the significant changes kick in to the tax code this year.

And even with the IRS returning, tax refunds may be delayed.

Email most popular for complaints

Email remains the most-popular technology platform for consumers making complaints, but it does not get the fastest results.

A new survey from Qualtrics found Facebook is number 1 among social media platforms for complaints, but companies respond more slowly through it than through other social media.

Organizations responded the quickest on Instagram.

Bars, coffee shops offering drinks with CBD

More bars and coffee shops are adding weed-related drinks to menus.

CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant.

It’s already being added to lotion, pet treats and more.

Indiana start-up companies

Indiana start-up companies developing life science raked in $115 million in venture funding last year, setting a record for the state’s life-sciences sector.

That’s 3 percent higher than 2017.

Some of the Indiana company’s products are brain surgery tools and tissue implants.

Outpost medicine raised the most money at 41 million.

Simon Property makes prestigious list

The mall operator was named one of the most admired companies by Fortune.

The list was determined by a survey of nearly 4,000 executives, directors and analysts who rated companies in their own industries based on criteria such as investment value, quality of management and ability to attract talent.

Fort Wayne-based Steel Dynamics also made the list.
