Financial Planning Tip (s) –
IRS Dirty Dozen
Each year the IRS publishes their top dozen tax scams, here in our post we cover all dirty dozen tax scams to be aware.
Our top three are their first three-
- Phone Scams
- Identity Theft
Which are the ones we see most frequently!
For the record, we have seen way less this year than in years past!
Choose Beneficiaries Carefully Part II
Here in our Part II beneficiary post, we discuss the two most common types of designations you will likely see on Beneficiary paperwork, Per Stirpes (flows to heirs, irregardless of survivors) and ProRata (funds only to survivors) and once again as a reminder that Beneficiary language will over ride Wills and other types of Estate Planning documents – choose carefully!
Capital Market Comments –
Inverted Yield Curve
Here we spoke of the three hour inverted yield curve in a Break In abbreviated post. As an update, the yield curve has been inverted most of this week, making is a TRUE inversion.
We will have a detailed review soon, but again the importance of this event is the recession signaling prowess.
All recessions are not equal, and we highly suspect the next one will be a shallow one, but our radars are up.
Have a Great Day – Talk to you at the end of March!
