Kelly Clarkson Starts Blended Family: What She Needs to Consider

Posted on: July 8th, 2016
Starting a new family is always exciting and even a tad scary. This natural apprehension can be enhanced when a couple creates a blended family. Bringing children from different parents together presents challenges - and those challenges are multiplied when the couple have new children of their own....

Your Family Business Legacy Matters Enough to Do These Three Things

Posted on: June 17th, 2016
Your family-owned and run business can be the greatest gift or the greatest burden to the people you love, if and when something happens to you. If you’ve planned well and properly for your business to be continued, managed or sold, it will be the gift that keeps on giving and shows your family just how much you cared about them. If you have not planned well and properly, it will be the gift that keeps on taking and creates an energy, time, and resource drain that costs your loved ones years of headache and leaves them with a nightmare of a mess to clean up. ...

Talking with Your Family About Your Estate Plan

Posted on: June 17th, 2016
Is it time to have “the talk” with your kids? We’re not talking about a “birds and bees” talk but one that is equally important, perhaps more so. Everyone has concerns about what will happen when they die. Some people worry about their homes, cars, or money. Others worry about their children. Rare, however, is the person who actually wants to talk about these things with their families. Opening these conversations with your family will be difficult, but nowhere near as difficult as it would be on your family in the absence of advance planning. Fortunately, there are steps you can take before the conversation - and during the conversation - to help it go more smoothly. ...

When Is the Purchase of Long-Term Care Insurance Worth It?

Posted on: June 3rd, 2016
Elder Care is emerging as a significant issue for many people as life spans continue to increase. It is nice to know that because of health care advances, we can expect to live longer, but there are no included guarantees on the quality of life in the later years. Many people eventually face a period in life when they can no longer do for themselves. Daily living tasks such as walking, bathing, cooking, and managing household affairs are beyond their physical and perhaps even mental capabilities. Frequently, that period has not been planned for by the person or family members. And sometimes, this period in life comes suddenly, such as when a debilitating fall takes place. One thing which people and their families should consider before this difficult period is the purchase of long-term care insurance. This type of insurance provides coverage for the expense of daily living assistance. It can cover in-home assistance as well as assisted living or nursing home costs. Most people, however, buy it to cover in-home living expenses so as to avoid a nursing home. ...

Family Business Options When Dealing with Divorce

Posted on: June 3rd, 2016
If you co-own a family business with your spouse and you are facing divorce, a likely concern is how your business will be handled through the separation proceedings. The good news is, it’s really all up to you. And, so much of it depends on the legal counsel you have representing you. Much of how this situation is handled depends on your desires and your ability to work together, so make sure you find a lawyer who is committed to supporting both of you to get what you want, rather than who is focused on a win/lose paradigm that will simply end up costing everyone more and only making your legal team rich....

Partnerships and LLCs, Take Heed of New Tax Law

Posted on: April 29th, 2016
Beginning with tax year 2018, all partnerships and limited liability companies (LLCs) taxed as partnerships will be affected by a new federal tax audit law. In 2015, the Bipartisan Budget Act repealed the earlier audit system, known as TEFRA, and replaced it with entirely new taxation audit provisions. It is important for those affected by this change to address certain issues under the new system by taking affirmative action now. Who Will the Law Affect? The new law will affect many small business owners, particularly those who are in a partnership or are members in an LLC that is taxed as a partnership. What Will the Law Require? Several provisions are similar to the old law, but there are at least two major differences which will impact many small businesses. ...
