We’re at the end of another school year. If you have younger kids, you might be thinking about summer camps and other activities. But in the not-too-distant future, your children will be facing a bigger transition as they head off to college. Will you be financially prepared for that day?

Hello friends and associates.  The old saying goes “April showers bring May flowers.”  Let’s hope that old adage holds up and we get some adequate rains to SoCal!  This session I want to visit an issue that’s currently on the front pages, IT speaking, right now.  We provide our information we share from experience, web site/tech site references, etc.

Powerful students vs power plant

If you’re at the beginning of your career, you might not be thinking too much about the end of it. But even younger workers should be aware of – and saving for – their eventual retirement. And since you’ve got many years until you do retire, you’ve got a lot of options to consider – one of which is whether an IRA may be appropriate for you and, if so, what type.

Power Plant

Our Beloved Son, Brother, Father and Grandson, Christopher Paul Bishop, Jr., 18, became a Soldier of God’s Great Paradise on February 23, 2016. He was young, but had an incredible goal list to start. Christopher was a quiet, happy and kind hearted young boy. My sons ultimate love of his life was his daughter, Alayna Rose Bishop. He made sure she had everything she needed or wanted before himself. The few weeks before Christopher’s passing, he had spoke of God, love, change and family. The conversations were different, talking about new beginnings. He is survived by his daughter, Alayna Rose Bishop, Norwalk, Ca., Mother, Michelle Ontiveros, brothers Raymond & Daniel, sisters Y’leesa Delatorre, Jolissa (Jose) Hernandez, grandmother, Lupe Ontiveros, all of Santa Paula. Father Chris P. Bishop of Los Angeles County. As well as his aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his sister Klorissa N. Diaz.

Roundabouts - A Waste of Ag Land and Taxpayer Money

For many people, the concept of retirement can be scary, both emotionally and financially. If you, too, feel somewhat anxious about what awaits you, you might feel more comfortable in knowing that, depending on where you work, you might be able to retire in stages. 

Georgia passed on Thursday, March 3, 2016. She was born April 30, 1923 to Glenn and Alice Bilyeu.  She married Dean Morton in Burbank, Ca after meeting him at a USO Dance. He was an Army soldier from Kansas and it was love at first site. Georgia retired from the County of Ventura after 18 years.  She was a beloved Mom, Aunt, Grandma, Grandma G and GG.  She will be missed dearly.

A taxpayer who needs more time to complete his or her 2015 individual tax return can request an automatic six-month extension. The extension is obtained by filing IRS Form 4868 on or before the April 18, 2016 deadline.

 As an investor, you may be gaining familiarity with the term “market correction.” But what does it mean? And, more importantly, what does it mean to you?

Thank You

Americans spent nearly $19 billion in Valentine’s Day gifts last year, according to the National Retail Federation. Much of this money went for gifts with short shelf lives, such as candy, flowers and restaurant meals (and about $700 million was spent on gifts for pets). There’s certainly nothing wrong with giving chocolates or roses. But this year, think about going beyond the classic gifts. Instead, use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to determine how you can make gifts with long-lasting impact to your circle of loved ones.

A taxpayer’s filing status for the year is based upon his or her marital status at the close of the tax year. Thus, if you get married on the last day of the tax year, you are treated as married for the entire year. The options for married couples are to file jointly or separately. Both statuses can result in surprises for individuals who previously filed as unmarried. The surprises can be both pleasant and unpleasant.

Hello friends and associates – Happy Holidays!  This session I want to visit security, in a different fashion, more directed to ‘protecting your security’.  It’s an ongoing problem worth attention and vigilance.
