Year-End Tax Planning for Employees and Families | Nadine Riley

{8:48 minutes to read} There’s something different about entering the month of November, in my opinion. I believe it is due to how close November is to the end of the year. It’s that penultimate month. November allows us to pause and rethink where we have been and where we would like to be before the year ends:

  • Some of us will pause to focus on the things we should have done and dwell there (do nothing).
  • Others will look back and choose to act and make a change that could be beneficial.
It is the latter group of individuals who may benefit the most from this article.

Where Are We With Tax Reform? (Business/Entrepreneur) | Nadine Riley

{4:42 minutes to read} Hope you are enjoying the warm sunny days of the season.

I can’t help but wonder, is it just me, or is it becoming a challenge to stay on track with what’s going in Washington with regards to federal tax reform? The uncertainties are evident. The Trump administration released a report on July 28, 2017 regarding the status of all the proposed changes. As it relates to tax reform, the most current report that we are aware of was released on April 26, 2017. If what’s promised is implemented, individuals/families and businesses will be affected.

Insurance Policies Part 1: Personal | Nadine Riley

{4:54 minutes to read} Oftentimes, the demands of everyday living make us forget about protecting our most valuable asset, ourselves. We protect our identity, our homes, vehicles, phones, appliances, etc. without thinking twice about it. Our day is filled with the to-dos of today, the plans for tomorrow and the regrets of yesterday, but when was the last time we slowed down to think about life’s what-ifs?

Taxes: So What’s Next? | Nadine Riley

{3:36 minutes to read} What will my tax bill look like in 2017 under the new president? In the past weeks, I have been asked this question many times.

If you are also pondering this question, let’s recap in more detail some of the tax changes Mr. Trump proposed. In addition to Trump’s plan, we will also examine the blueprint delivered by the Ways and Means Committee Republicans (in June 2016) regarding the proposed rebuilding of America. (You can read more about Ways and Means here.)

Financial Mgmt Tools for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses | Nadine Riley

{4:36 minutes to read} Being a self-employed entrepreneur or small business owner can be exciting and frightening all at the same time. It is good to be the one who is calling the shots, but it is difficult to keep your fingers on all the necessary pulses so that you and/or your business thrive. One of the most essential and useful tools in any business toolbox for a small business is proper bookkeeping. Without it, how do you account for all the money that flows in and out of your company? Is it possible that your business is losing cash at an accelerated rate without you being aware of it? You say your business is profitable, but you still find yourself with cash-flow problems.

Are You Living From Paycheck to Paycheck? | Nadine Riley

{4:36 minutes to read} Everyone is familiar with the expression “living from paycheck to paycheck.” And most of us know people who are actually living from paycheck to paycheck, including ourselves in some cases. What you may find surprising, however, is that it doesn’t really matter what your income is. Most believe this lifestyle is reserved for low- to medium-income families, but there are people with very high incomes who have the same problem.
