Although the Dallas, TX area always has warm summers with temperatures in the 90's to 100's we don't typically see 100 degree days for the 1st of June!  Yikes!  We will have a sharp spike from our normal temperatures to welcome June in and usher May out.             Hopefully, this is not a sign of the temperatures to come but it certainly won't be the first (or the last) time that we experience roller coaster temperatures.  Mother Nature does like to throw curve balls at us...

Just before the turn of the new year, Congress passed—and the president signed—the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (“TCJA”).  The TCJA represents the most extensive rewrite of the U.S. tax code in over 30 years.  The new act contains a number of important provisions that will impact business tax planning for years to come.  Below are some highlights from the business-related provisions that practitioners need to know.21% Corporate Rate. The new act eliminates the progressive corporate tax rate system, which imposed a 35-percent maximum tax rate.  In its place, it provides a flat 21-percent corporate rate.  This change, which is not set to phase out, will play a significant role in choice-of-entity decisions.Corporate Alternative Minimum Tax.  The new law repeals the corporate Alternative ...

 Washington is broken…there is simply no argument to support any other theory.  If you don't want to believe this, just click on the photo of the U.S. Debt Clock below...it will open in real time and it is staggering.I just had to share these quotes as I believe they are so apropos:    By J. Stewart Baker: “Time is running out on the fiscal policies which were initiated when our national debt was a small fraction of what it is today and which may have been expedient during the war but in present circumstances involve dangers so great as to demand that no further compromise with sound fiscal practice be tolerated”By Samuel Smiles: “The first step in debt is like the first step in falsehood, involving the necessity of going on in the same course, debt following debt, as lie follows lie”By...

         There are so many things to love about the     greater Dallas Metroplex that it is difficult     to name them all.  But here are five of my     favorite things that I love about living in Dallas:  1.  Our beautiful weather and the fact that we actually enjoy four different seasons of the year.  Although our summer heat can get high, with typical temperatures staying at 100+ in August…our winter is exceptional with only occasional freezing temperatures and (maybe) a light snow fall once or twice.  But the snow doesn’t last, we are lucky to enjoy it for a day or two and then it is back to sunny skies. 2.   Our fabulous parks and lakes – Texas is abundant with them and the Dallas area has a wonderful array of lakes and parks to enjoy.  And with our unusually wet spring (which we d...

Condos may be the perfect choice when weighing the pro's and con's of owning and maintaining a house with a yard versus a more maintenance free lifestyle. For many Condo living is a preferred choice with fewer responsibilities, but there are more rules to adhere to.  Expenses vary, and part of the financial consideration to review is the monthly condo fees.  These are the expenses of maintaining the property that are shared by all of the owners in the community, and can run from as little as $100 per month to over $1,000 (or more).  It is important to review all of the HOA documents for the fees, maintenance and reserves required for a unit within a community to be sure that you budget your overall monthly costs correctly on owning this type of home. For more information, please visit m...

Moving Day - it's finally here! Follow this easy list of "to-do's" to make your move go smoothly:On moving day, attitude is everything – and your attitude is strictly business. Think of yourself as the CEO of this operation. Before the moving truck arrives, try to make sure your children are somewhere else – a friend or relative’s home. Also, the dog, the cat, the goldfish, all these things should be out of the way. Have the caregiver bring the kids back home just prior to the truck leaving so the kids can see where their belongings are going. When the truck does arrive, find out who is in charge of the move. It’s usually going to be the driver. Get his or her name. For the rest of the day, your communications should be with whoever is in charge, for him or her to relay to the workers. ...

 So, which step have you reached today? Of course some days it is easier to hit the top step and say "Yes, I did it!" and that's because of your attitude.  If you start each day with an "I want to do it" or "How do I do it" (if you already have a challenge set for the day), then you have a great chance to make it all the way to "Yes, I did it".  But if you start your day with "I won't do it" or "I can't do it" you are already beginning your day in the hole.  Make it a point to begin your day with a smile and a positive attitude.  I believe you will find that you will be able to say "Yes, I did it" everyday!
