Property Insurance – Our Family Story

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS – One prefers one’s home to all other places. Home is where one is most emotionally attached. Although the proverb has probably been in use since time immemorial, it has been attributed to Pliny the Elder (A.D. 23-79).

 

This tax blog specifically deals with our views on the topic of property insurance.

We typically won’t extend recommendations via our blogs unless we have used the services ourselves and can fully stand behind the company 100%.

Financial Planning – Do I Need Life Insurance?

Benjamin Franklin is believed to have said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.

This tax blog specifically deals with our views on the topic of life insurance.

As we explored the beautiful island of Bequia (pronounced Bek-Way) post-tax season 2017, Angie and I both found ourselves driving to meet the sunrise one beautiful morning amid our 7-day stay. How romantic, right? In most ways, yes, although we still answer business phone calls and run payroll errands all while tucked away on a fantasy island getaway. The role of being small business owners is something we have now become accustomed to regardless of our geographic location — thank goodness for WiFi. We are perfectly fine with this responsibility and take it quite seriously. When we committed ourselves to our clients’ needs, we knew all that it would entail.

The Keys to Saving Wisely

“Take a better stand. Put money in my mom’s hand. Get my daughter this college plan, so she don’t need no man.”
~ Biggie

My uncle was a man I greatly respected. My uncle was in fact a self-made multi-millionaire ten times over. You may ask yourself how he got there, and what is his story. Like most millionaires, he was an investor, and he invested his money so that his money would earn money for him. That was his job – his job was managing his investments, and not punching a clock. I remember his living room was filled with financial statements from companies of all kinds, and with prospectuses pilling up to the ceiling. Yes, much like Warren Buffet, he had to know the company inside and out before he would send any money that way.

Tax Reform and S Corporation Reasonable Compensation

The 2018 tax reform known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) allows for a new 20 percent deduction on certain business income, known as the Section 199A deduction. One should have the right type of business and the right taxable income.

In our past blog article Christmas Came Early In 2018, we discussed different choices in conducting business when it came to taxation and the new tax legislation in great detail. We also explained the differences in taxation of each business entity structure, and if you have been paying attention, you will recall that the S corporation is a pass-through entity which is typically a great choice for most small business owners.
