Today TaxMama® wants to remind you it’s time to start doing your year-end planning for 2018 – or, if it’s too late for some strategies – to start working on next year. NOW!
When two people fall in love, they tend to be blind to life’s realities. The last thing they want to do is bring up issues that might generate conflict, and let’s face it, the topic of taxes is definitely turbulent. Ask these tough tax questions before you get married – to avoid an inevitable […]
Today TaxMama® hears from several people in the TaxQuips Forum, with questions asked too late. Here are some questions that should have been asked before you entered into your financial transactions – not when you file your tax returns.
Today TaxMama® hears from Yazminia in the TaxQuips Forum with an apt question (rephrased). “I am over age 59 ½ and want to transfer money from my IRA to my Roth IRA tax-free. Based on my income level, how much may I transfer without generating taxes?”
Today TaxMama® hears from Matt in the TaxQuips Forum, who asks a common type of question. “I would like to know if an LLC can also be an S Corporation and what the tax advantages would be?”
Today TaxMama® hears from Lisa in the TaxQuips Forum with this question. “I have a client that simply executed a quitclaim deed of a second home to her niece. She now wants to sell the home and is concerned about the tax consequences to both herself and her niece. How do I advise them both?”
Today TaxMama® has been hearing from several people in the TaxQuips Forum and elsewhere, with this question. “Someone just inherited an annuity. Is it taxable? And if so, how much of it is taxable?”
Today TaxMama® hears from Todd in the TaxQuips Forum who is looking to the future. “I am transferring ownership of a sub-chapter S corporation from myself to a family trust.

Today TaxMama® hears from KD in the TaxQuips Forum who is justifiably confused. “I was looking over our tax return and was wondering why we are paying almost 50% effective tax rates on our income. I’m currently unemployed and my husband is an independent contractor. Our CPA included a chart with this year’s tax return. […]
Today TaxMama® wants to talk about getting older. “My mother and I just had such a laugh. One of her friends is over 90 years old and just got her driver’s license renewed for 5 years without restrictions. Well, you don’t have to be 90 years old to start thinking about senior planning…though, these days, […]
Today TaxMama® hears from Dave in the TaxQuips Forum with a quickie little question. “If I retire at 62 or 63 with Social Security and IRA distributions (not Roth) what will my tax liabilities be? For example: Monthly: $1700 from social security and $3,000 from IRA for total of $4,700. Do I pay income tax […]
Today TaxMama® hears from Michelle in the TaxQuips Forum who suggested this idea. “I’ve noticed recently that you’ve advised people to check with their tax pro before consummating major transactions stemming from big life moves. I discovered that April is National Financial Literacy Month. This would be an excellent platform to share more and/or updated […]
