Happy New Year to all!  Here’s hoping your personal and business endeavors for 2016 are rewarding and successful.

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.

 You’ve no doubt heard about the risks associated with investing. This investment carries this type of risk, while that investment carries another one. And it is certainly true that all investments do involve some form of risk. But what about not investing? Isn’t there some risk associated with that, too?

Well it seems we may finally be getting some fall weather in the Heritage Valley!  As the season turns and the leaves begin to fall another year-end approaches.   Around the end of the year I always think ‘maintenance’.  It’s something that has just become part of my natural thought process over the years being in the computer support arena.  Here’s what I mean.

VFW says 

October 3, 2015 ushers in new laws and rules to protect homebuyers from being duped or acting without being informed. There are new forms replacing old forms and new timelines designed to slow down the purchase process. The rules apply only to transactions beginning October 3 or later.

Maybe you already have an email client (service) – this is probably true.  If you do, maybe you’re thinking of changing.  And yet, maybe you’re a ‘newbie’ and don’t’ have email and would like to have one but really don’t know where to start.  I’ve hit on these items in my sharing of information in the past but it’s worth revisiting, particularly for anyone who missed it.  Let’s share some views on the general terms and definitions that might help you navigate this path.  Please keep in mind there are details/options here and there than can be tweaked with all the different options - the goal here is to just give you a general overview.

You might not think much about inflation. After all, it’s been quite low for the past several years. Still, you may want to take it into account when you’re planning your retirement income strategy. 

Once upon a time, inflation settled naturally into the housing market.  There was also a time when the next home sold on almost any street would sell for a little bit more--just because. No one minded because we are geared to profit, cost of living  increases and healthy inflation.  But now,  the garage has to be bigger or granite has to be in place of the old Formica tops.

This time around I’d like to share insight on some neat tools that used in the right environment can save you lots of time and money.  While this suggestion can be applied really anywhere - the home computer, the system the kids use, a common work station at the office - an ideal environment is a ‘shared resource’ or ‘public system’.  Basically what this means is a system or environment such as in a class room, library, social club, etc. shared by many different uses.

There are proper places and uses for ‘local’ and ‘network’ printers.  It depends what you’re doing and the workload as well.  This time around, let’s clarify the two and perhaps this information can assist you in how to best align with your operations.

By this time most of us have finish our taxes and we don’t want to think about them again for a long while. However, that’s exactly what financially savvy taxpayers do!  By taking a look at your tax situation before the year is over, you can take advantage of every legal means to reduce the amount you’ll pay in taxes next year.

The world of today is vastly different from the one that existed in, say, 1974. Innovations such as the Internet, smartphones, tablets, Facebook, Twitter and so on have made our lives more enjoyable, efficient and productive in many ways, and have vastly improved our access to the world’s knowledge. Yet when it comes to one important area of our lives — investing for the future — many of us may actually face more challenges today than we might have in the past.
