Understanding the K-1: Part 3

April 12, 2017

The weather has turned, birds are chirping, and MLB’s opening day has come and gone.  For most people this means Spring is here!  For myself and all of the tax preparers out there it means the “home-stretch” of tax season is upon us.  I am definitely looking forward to April 18th (we get three extra…

April 5, 2017

I usually write something about sports for everyone one of my articles, but this week I have something else on my mind.  For the past month or so, my pet parakeet Larry Bird (yes, he is named after the basketball legend!) had been battling a tumor in his leg.  The little guy battled so hard…

Understanding the K-1: Part 1

March 29, 2017

How is your NCAA bracket doing this year?  As per usual, mine is completely busted.  Hopefully you still have your Final Four teams still intact.  Anyway, this week I wanted to start to cover the impact of a Schedule K-1 on your taxes.  I think it is safe to say most business owners and people…

Active vs. Passive K-1’s

March 22, 2017

March Madness is upon us and another one of my tax season “milestones” has passed.  I wish I could say that I watched a bunch of the games this year, but I haven’t.  I have been checking in on the scores though.  While the first day of games seemed to go in line with the…

How Much Can I Contribute to My IRA?

March 15, 2017

We’re only about half-way into tax season and I seem to be getting the same question over and over again – “How much can I contribute to my IRA this year?”  The answer seems like it should be simple, but it’s not.   The tax code makes the answer quite complex, actually.  So I thought it…

The Tax Implications of Buying a Home: Part 2

March 8, 2017

Being a Philadelphia 76ers fan is tough.  We had to endure multiple horrendous seasons during “The Process”.  Coming into this season we all knew that it would be another challenging season.  But hopes were higher than in the past – we would finally get to watch Joel Embiid take the court as well as watch…

This really started taking shape in my thinking and actions while in college. My friends and I would sit around…
