Daylight savings time has just started.  I hope everyone has remembered to "spring forward" with their clocks.  With the days lengthening and the weather in our area beginning to settle down for warmer weather, perhaps you are more inclined to venture out and schedule those office visits that you have been putting off this winter.  Now is the time to contact our office at 303.877.8921 to schedule an appointment to review and update your estate plan.  We always look forward to visiting with our clients.

Kiddie Tax Changes May Increase Burden for Families with SNTs

Major changes to the “kiddie tax” could significantly increase the tax liability of assets placed in special needs trusts if the trust’s beneficiary is a minor and the income the trust earns is high enough.

Some Non-English Speakers Would Lose Disability Benefits Under SSA Proposal
