(July 6, 2019) Tackle Your Estate Plan Today! – Estate planning is often pushed off as a to-do item for many because it really doesn’t have a hard deadline like, for example, preparing your income tax return. A good estate plan is pretty comprehensive and includes a lot of moving parts. Even so, an individual can be very prepared if some of the more important tasks are addressed over the course of 3-4 years (don’t need to do everything at once). I would especially encourage the following: 1) incapacity planning (durable power of attorney and health care directive), 2) organizing your assets and liabilities (with ownership for each asset), 3) beneficiary designations (make sure this is current and not stale information), 4) legal documentation (will and trusts), and 5) identify people or loved ones to take on key roles (executor, trustee and guardian).
(June 28, 2019) Save for Retirement, but be Educated too! – For many, one of the largest assets for individuals is their retirement account. Usually, these dollars are in tax-deferred accounts such as a 401k or traditional IRA. We have seen balances soar in the last few years. Be careful, though - it is important to discount the account balance for the tax on anticipated distributions at retirement. Below is an interesting read on this subject. Keep saving everyone!!!
(May 20, 2019) Estate Planning Tips: Did you know that a substantial portion of most estates do not pass at death under a Will or Trust, but rather by either operation of law (i.e. how an asset is titled) or according to a beneficiary designation (i.e. retirement plans or your insurance policy)? It is important to review your beneficiary designations from time to time and make sure that they work in tandem with your estate plan. BTW, do you have an estate plan in place?
Get Your Important Contact Information and Documents in Order: Being an Administrator or an Executor of an estate is not easy. Take time to organize your life to make things easier for others. Collect important papers (i.e. insurance policies, marriage license, birth certificate, will, recent tax returns, trust), Title and financial information (i.e. home, car, credit cards, bank accounts, investments), Benefit information (social security, employee benefits), and Contact information (i.e. attorney, accountant, doctor).
(May 15, 2019) Retirement Contributions – If you’re still working, review the 2019 IRA contribution and deduction limits to make sure you are taking full advantage of the opportunity to save for your retirement. You can make 2019 IRA contributions until April 15, 2020.
(Mar 4, 2019) Missed the Tax Deadline for a Prior Year? Here are reasons you should try to file soon – 1) Avoid interest and penalties, 2) Claim a refund. Like Hammer once said, "can't touch this" or no refund if you are 3 years late, 3) Protect social security benefits, and 4) Avoid issues obtaining loans. Sometimes you need a completed tax return for other reasons (i.e. FAFSA). We can help.
If you owe more than you can pay? - You can request a 60-120 day relief to pay your balance through installments. Call 1-800-829-1040 to set this up.
(Feb 17, 2019) Update Your Beneficiary Designations! – When clients come to me for estate planning, they often think it begins and ends with the drafting of a will. While your Last Will and Testament is a critical component of the process, the starting point of your plan begins with the title of your assets and your beneficiary designations.
Beneficiary designation gives direction who will receive some kind of proceeds when you pass away. Places where you will need to think about beneficiary designations include: life insurance policy, retirement accounts (IRA, Roth IRA, 401k, etc.), or any bank or investment account.
Some people forget to list a beneficiary designation in the first place (that’s bad). Other people list the beneficiaries and forget who is listed as beneficiaries (and that’s equally bad). Most often, these beneficiary designations stand alone and can create awkward situations when a person’s family situation changes. Imagine if your ex-wife was listed on the beneficiary designation.
Don’t rely on the courts – make it clear from the document itself and update your beneficiary designations every few years (and especially if your family situation changes).
