Here's a shout out to one of the most festive homes in town. Your holiday spirit makes us smile. Thank you!
Message From Peter
As I write this message, the US Congress is poised to vote on tax reform; what ever you think about the proposed tax reform, the only thing certain is that it will represent a very significant change. Good or bad, people will need to seriously reconsider estate planning documents, long range planning, financial planning, health care planning, nursing home planning, and the list goes on.
Putting all of that aside for the moment, we would like to take this time to wish you and your family the very best of holidays and a Merry Christmas.
Please note that our office will be closed Monday, December 25th and Tuesday December 26th for Christmas. We will also be closed at noon on Friday December 29th and all day on Monday January 1st for New Years. Stay warm and be safe this holiday season.
Two Popular Medigap Plans Are Ending. Should You Enroll While You Can?
If you will soon turn 65 and be applying for Medicare, you should carefully consider which Medigap policy to enroll in because two of the most popular plans will be ending soon. In 2020, Medicare beneficiaries will no longer be able to enroll in Plans F and C.
After staying the same for five years, the amount you can give away to any one individual in a particular year without reporting the gift will increase in 2018. Very few taxpayers will have to pay a gift tax in any case.
You may be afraid of losing your home if you have to enter a nursing home and apply for Medicaid. While this fear is well-founded, transferring the home to your children is usually not the best way to protect it.
