re: The house voted to repeal the estate tax. Democrats melt down - Poodlebrain
[quote]The estate is 100% income to the heir(s) and should be taxed as such[/quote]It depends how you define income. And Congress has excluded gifts and inheritances from the definition of income. Thus, you are factually wrong. Suppose you are right, and inheritances are income. How are you go...

re: The house voted to repeal the estate tax. Democrats melt down - Poodlebrain
If I don't want the government to take $ from me to give to you, and I don't work to earn that $, then the $ doesn't exist. It ain't a push. It's a loss to the economy. I ain't working for you if I know I get less for my work than the value I put on the effort. What is fundamentally wrong is y...

re: George Lucas Strikes Back, Plans Affordable Housing Near Rich Neighbors - Poodlebrain
Regular working people in Marin have to use the Golden Gate Bridge or ferry to get to San Francisco. If they carpool, it is only $4 per day for bridge toll plus parking in San Francisco. Otherwise, it is at least $6 per day to use the bridge plus parking. Riding the ferry costs $20 per day for ti...

re: LSU's offense will be dynamic in 2015 - Poodlebrain
[quote]OSU has studs for QB's.... No QB on LSU's roster can perform or run a offense like that. [/quote]I think the Ohio State QBs are benefitting from the offensive system of Urban Meyer. Going back to 2012, Braxton Miller, Kenny Guiton, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones have all put up similar per g...

re: George Lucas Strikes Back, Plans Affordable Housing Near Rich Neighbors - Poodlebrain
I doubt Lucas is planning to build rental properties for Section 8 tenants. As for affordable homes in Novato, take a look at some of the homes for sale in Novato. [link=(http://www.trulia.com/for_sale/Novato,CA)]LINK[/link] Anything selling for less than $400 per square foot would be "affordable."...

re: LSU's offense will be dynamic in 2015 - Poodlebrain
Give Les Miles and Cam Cameron some credit for being able to recognize that changes needed to be made. I can guarantee you they have been studying what Urban Meyer has been doing at Ohio State. His offense has made much better use of running backs than it did at Florida, and it has relieved a lot ...

[quote]Should I bump up my 401k contributions to lower my AGI?[/quote]That is generally a wise thing to do. Saving every penny in excess of your routine cash flow requirements is never a bad idea.

re: 2015 Tax Planning Questions - Poodlebrain
Almost 30 years of practice, and the independence to dictate to my clients whether their returns were going to be finished or extended as of Monday. That gave me yesterday to handle administrative details, and today I just sat around answering silly phone calls and doing serious things on the inter...

I wonder how the Department of Justice is going to be able to conclude that no crime was committed in this instance?

re: 2015 Tax Planning Questions - Poodlebrain
$15k of income @ 25% marginal rate is $3,750 of additional tax. You shouldn't have been too shocked. The only permanent discretionary deductions are charitable contributions. All other discretionary deductions are timing deductions. You can accelerate, or defer, them to maximize your benefit on ...

How would any competent attorney let him go unchallenged as a juror? First, would you be confident he would follow the trial judge's instructions during deliberations? And wouldn't you have to consider the possibility, however remote, that your case could end up before the Supreme Court for review...
