Sept. 1 — Expanded Amazon guarantee effective
Amazon recently announced that it will expand its “A-to-z Guarantee” to better protect buyers when a defective product sold through Amazon’s website causes property damage or personal injury, even if the product was sold by a third party.
As part of this change, Amazon will pay shoppers for valid claims of less than $1,000, which the retailer says account for more than 80% of cases related to defective products.

Sept. 6 — Labor Day
While the holiday itself is observed on a Monday, Labor Day sales are likely to kick off by Friday, Sept. 3, if not sooner.

Sept. 15 — Deadline for estimated tax payments
Sept. 15 is the deadline for the second quarterly installment of estimated taxes for the 2021 tax year — the one for which your tax return is due in spring 2022. This deadline applies to the self-employed and other workers who earn income that isn’t subject to withholding, who use IRS Form 1040-ES to pay this tax.
