This country and the world have recently emerged from one of the greatest socio-economic calamities since WWII. The pandemic, lockdowns and the resultant economic and political repercussions have accelerated social change on a magnitude that usually takes decades to occur. Issues that have pushed their way to the forefront are: Government's need to act for the benefit of all versus the need to protect individual liberties The economy, inflation and, gas prices and whether the time for Green technologies is now, or whether it should be phased in over time The rights of parents to direct their children's education vs the rights of public schools to impose social and sexual agendas The rights to abortion or to limit it Gun Control and Gun Rights Religious liberty All these and more have been pushed front and center, seemingly all at once. People are passionately and in some cases bitterly divided on these issues. Many question whether this nation can go on being as divided as it is on core existential issues, while millions flee to states where they believe their way of life is being protected or preserved from social and governmental intrusion. The 2022 Midterm Elections provide a first chance for this Country to take its own temperature and to find out if there is consensus and if there are any issues can unify this nation, or if we are headed down the path of division and disunity. In this final Episode of this Three part series on the 2022 Mid-Term Elections, join Spencer and his faithful “Wing Woman” Marti as they go across the nation to ask America one question: Tell Every Politician in the Country What is the biggest issue of concern to you and why? You may be surprised at what Americans have to say.

The art of financial planning and what is the state of business air travel with aviation expert Mike Hatten.

This is tax attorney, Steve Moskowitz. Steve, it's interesting when we talk about taxes and finance, is Siri in the United States, is it the same in every state? Are there geographical differences? Steve Moskowitz: Oh sure, because a majority of states have their own tax system and different states treat the tax a little differently. So when you're giving tax advice, it's not just Federal IRS, you have to consider the state or the states that you're involved with. Chip Franklin: I mean, I know Texas and Florida, they don't have income tax and that's a big decision in a lot of people's moment deciding where to move. And we have a lot of people from California going to Texas, right? Steve Moskowitz: Oh, there's a tremendous drain of people out of California now, Chip. And there's a number of states that don't have a state income tax. Of course, the one that we joke about a little bit is Alaska. Alaska has a negative state income tax. They actually pay you to live there. But the joke is, do you want to live in a place where they pay you to live there? Chip Franklin: All right. Our next guest is a certified public accountant, a certified fraud examiner, business advisory and virtual CFO solutions. Then I hope I get her last name right, Lydia Desnoyres. Did I get that right, Lydia? Lydia Desnoyres: Phenomenal. Spot on, Chip. Chip Franklin: Thank you so much for being here. Lydia Desnoyres: Thank you. Chip Franklin: That's Steve Moskowitz, right above your head. Steve Moskowitz: Hi, Lydia. Lydia Desnoyres: Hi, Steve. Steve Moskowitz: Boy, we probably have a lot to talk about. Before I was a tax attorney, I was a CPA. Lydia Desnoyres: Did you go to the dark side or you think you left the dark side? Steve Moskowitz: Well, I didn't want have to work as hard as you do, so I became an attorney instead. Chip Franklin: All right, so both of you deal with tax strategy. So let's start with this question for both of you. When meeting with a client for the first time, what's your first question? And let me start with you, Lydia. Lydia Desnoyres: It depends on when they're calling. If they're calling on April 14th my first question is, have you lost your mind? Just kidding. The first question is, what's your story? What has happened in the past? Do you typically owe? Just to get a feel for how things have been in the past. Once I get to doing the work and then I direct my questions on more planning and strategy for the future. But usually it's a, what's your scenario? What's going on?/p> Chip Franklin: Steve? Steve Moskowitz: Well, we're very into planning. So what I like to do if somebody calls me on April 14th, I will explain to them an extension is extension of time to file, not an extension of time to pay. And then what I try to explain to the clients is that your tax return should merely be a summarization of a year's worth of tax planning. Because I look at the Fortune 500. And that's why I became a tax attorney because when I went to law school, I already had a bachelor's and master's degree.

What's the latest in the hotel economy with the owner of 90 yr old Handley in Union Square and the importance of professional coaching in the business world. Episode Transcript Intro: Welcome to the Practical Tax podcast, with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz. The Practical Tax podcast is brought to you by Moskowitz, LLP, a tax law firm.

You should see professional consultation for your individual tax and legal situation. Chip Franklin: Welcome everybody to Practical Tax with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz. Steve, I want to ask you something before our first guess because it kind of ties in with our guest. As you traveled around the country, did you constantly go back to the same hotel when you were in a city? Was it like one you favored and you just stuck with it? Steve Moskowitz: Absolutely. Chip Franklin: What were the things that that drew you to that? Because I know that some hotels, they fight for business travel because that's a great thing to have. Others can't really compete in that area and some do both. Steve Moskowitz: Well, I hate to admit this, but my number one consideration was a good wifi. It's really important. Chip Franklin: I get, yeah. That's funny. Steve Moskowitz: I mean, for example, right now we're doing a Zoom and all the business is being done through the internet now. The number one thing is I need a good wifi connection. Chip Franklin: You know what mine was, good pillows because I mean I've always had... I've played sports so many years and I'm feeling the pain now. I always wanted a hotel that had good firm pillows as opposed to the ones where they look like a sheep snuck in your room and it was on your bed. There was a lot of things and it's funny, so I traveled forever and I would always pick the same hotels and price didn't matter because I mean that was eight hours that I could just disappear before I had to do any kind of work and everything. Steve Moskowitz: Of course, you're only paying for part of the room. The IRS is paying for the other part. Chip Franklin: Our first guest is the owner and this is a family-owned business here in San Francisco that has been in this family since 1928 and some incredible stories. Jon Handlery joins us here from the Handlery Hotel in San Francisco. Jon, welcome to Practical Tax with Steve Moskowitz. Hope you're well. Jon Handlery: I'm doing well. I hear you Steve on the radio quite often giving tips. Thank you. Steve Moskowitz: Thanks very much. Hopefully you heard me doing my broadcasts with Chip. Jon Handlery: Yes. Chip Franklin: Both of you guys are great on the radio and both of you guys I think are smart to represent your brand, and that's one thing that I've seen all these years in radio is that people want authenticity. They don't need the guy that talks like this. What they want is they want to hear from the people who actually will be delivering the service or product that they have. Both of you guys represent yourselves real well. There's some kissing up, but it's true. Steve Moskowitz: Thanks Chip. Jon Handlery: Thank you very much. Chip Franklin: So Jon, let's talk about, I mean obviously in and since 1928 coming up on a hundred years, not too far down the road- Steve Moskowitz: Jon wasn't the one that opened the doors. Chip Franklin: No. Jon Handlery: No. My grandfather, then my dad, now me, and two of my kids now have followed me into the industry, so fourth generation. Chip Franklin: Let me ask you this, Jon, over the years obviously this pandemic had to be a difficult period to get through especially as ...
The predecessor to the FWC (the agency name has changed over the years) was established in 1942 by an amendment to the Florida Constitution which became current Article 4, Section 9. It originally gave the Commission power over “birds, game, fur bearing animals, and fresh water fish of the State of Florida.” In later amendments to the Constitution this phrase was changed to “wild animal life and fresh water aquatic life.” The FWC originally interpreted the 1942 language to give the agency power over captive wildlife in addition to Florida's native free wildlife. In 1960 their attempt to regulate captive animals ended up in the Florida Supreme court with Barrow v. Holland, 125 So.2d, 749, 751 (Fla 1960). The Court ruled that the amendment did NOT give FWC power of captive animals. As a result, the Legislature stepped in and passed currently numbered Florida Statutes §§ 379.303, 379.304, 379.3761, and 379.3762 to add regulatory authority over captive wildlife to the agency's powers. In 2007 in house counsel for FWC produced a memorandum arguing that FWC's powers over captive animals comes from BOTH the statutes and the Constitution. To the extent the power comes from the Constitution, their argument is that the agency's powers cannot be altered by the legislature except in the very limited way provided for in the Amendment, which states “The legislature may enact laws in aid of the commission, not inconsistent with this section.” The basis for this FWC position in the memo is that changes to the Amendment language since 1942 have rendered Barrow no longer applicable law and that references to the Constitutional powers in certain subsequent cases support this interpretation. An analysis of those changes in language in the amendments to the Constitution and of the cited cases by attorneys at Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns, LLP and concurred with by University of Florida Constitutional Law Professor Joe Little reveals that the FWC argument is flawed and that FWC's power over captive animals comes entirely from the statute, not at all from the Constitution (see https://www.jpfirm.com/news-resources/constitutional-authority-florida-legislature-ban-private-ownership-exotic-animals/ ). What the Legislature giveth, the Legislature can take away. Therefore it is clear that the Florida legislature has the authority to ban private ownership of big cats as other state legislatures have done. WHAT CAN FLORIDA LEARN FROM OTHER STATES AND WHAT SHOULD THE FLORIDA BAR RECOMMEND TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM? https://vimeo.com/222234998/ There are only four remaining states that have no laws regarding ownership of dangerous big cats. Until 2011 Ohio was one of those known for having a very large population of unregulated exotic animals. Then, in a horrible incident known as “the Zanesville massacre” that made national news, Terry Thompson, an exotic animal owner, intentionally released 56 dangerous animals including 18 tigers and 17 lions and then committed suicide. As dark approached law enforcement officials were forced to shoot to kill 49 of those animals. Subsequently Zanesville's Sheriff Lutz has become a strong advocate of national legislation to limit private possession of big cats (see his moving video at 4991058dae ) and the National Sheriffs' Association has endorsed a federal bill severely limiting ownership of big cats (Big Cat Public Safety Act, H.R 1818/S.2990). What renders almost all of the state laws largely ineffective is that they operate much like the Florida law that only prohibits owning the animals as pets. I.e. they exempt anyone who has a USDA license. This includes all of the roadside zoos who continue to keep these animals in conditions that are unnatural and cruel given what we know about how intelligent and sentient these animals are. The animals endure these conditions because, as described in detail above, trying to enforce regulations intended to protect the animals is simply not practical given the cost limitations associated with inspecting, investigating and prosecuting violators. Fortunately the trend in state law has been NOT to exempt USDA licensees, but instead to recognize that both animal welfare concerns and public safety concerns dictate banning ownership outside of (1) the major zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, who operate under much higher animal welfare standards than the FWC or USDA standards, and (2) sanctuaries who are needed to care for the discarded or seized animals and do not add to the problem by breeding more cats. The trend toward not exempting all USDA licensees is evidenced in the laws in Washington State, Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia (although the latter grandfathered in past USDA license holders who keep their licenses in force). One logical provision common in these laws is a grandfather clause allowing current owners to keep their cats but prohibiting them from breeding or acquiring more. As a practical matter, sanctuaries have very limited capacity and there would be no place for confiscated cats to go if they were taken from all the private owners. The lifespan of these cats is 10-20 years depending on the conditions in which they are kept. Given the average age of the current big cat population, a law prohibiting further breeding outside the Species Survival Plans managed by the AZA zoos would result in most of the privately owned cats having passed on within a decade after the passage of a law. Awareness is rapidly growing that the often cited biblical reference to “dominion over animals” does not mean they are like inanimate objects subject to our whim to be used for entertainment or exploited for gain without concern for their natural needs. It means we have responsibility for them. Trying to regulate a large number of private owners is simply not practical. It is time for Florida, once a stronghold of inhumane roadside zoos, to catch up to the growing understanding in our society that these iconic animals do not belong in tiny cages for someone to exploit by charging the public to gawk at them, handle them, or swim with them. Florida should follow the lead of the more forward thinking states that have banned private ownership and breeding outside of the AZA zoos and sanctuaries while grandfathering in existing owners who then have years to transition out of their big cat exhibition activities. Howie is a genius! He wrote this for Marcia to present to the Animal Law Section so they can start the wheels moving to allow for a state ban on big cats in Florida.

Steve, you're looking good, my friend. Steve Moskowitz: Thanks so much, Chip. Chip Franklin: Lot to talk about today. And there's a lot going on in the world. One of those really involves us here in California. We have so many days of sunshine, maybe not in the sunset district of San Francisco. Steve Moskowitz: It's wonderful here. Chip Franklin: The ironically named sunset district, but one of the things that it always blew me away is that we don't have more solar panels on every... Well, I don't know, on every building from San Francisco down to the border with Mexico, and I find it fascinating. And that's one thing we don't have that we should, but maybe there's reasons that I don't know. So we invited our first guest today. He's a green energy expert, and he's here with us. Ali Samana joins us here on the Practical Tax podcast. Ali, thank you so much for being here. Good to have you. And it's really great to be able to talk to somebody that can maybe clear some of this up for us. Happy sunny Friday. Ali Samana: Hey, happy Friday to you too. And howdy from Texas. How are you, Chip? Chip Franklin: I'm well. I'm glad I'm not in Texas though. It's hot down there. Steve Moskowitz: Well, I don't know. Half of California is moving to Texas too. Chip Franklin: Yeah. Yeah, if you believe the ads, it seems like it. Steve Moskowitz: Every day clients are telling me. Even today, clients are well, we're moving to Texas. Chip Franklin: Have you been to Texas, Steve? Steve Moskowitz: Many times. Chip Franklin: All right. No knocking you Ali. I love California, but I guess everybody has their own. Steve Moskowitz: So do I, doesn't mean I can't like Texas too. Chip Franklin: Fair enough. Okay. So Ali, let's start with just across the country, and then we can focus in on California. What are the challenges facing the expansion of solar energy in California and across the country? Ali Samana: So there are several challenges that are facing the green energy market. So if you imagine where the cell phone technology was about 30 years ago, that's kind of where we are. We have this infrastructure, this very heavy grid infrastructure, and now we're going down to what's called distributor generation. So there's a lot of pushback, number one, from these grid operators, because if everybody just goes off, well, these poles and wires and everything that they've spent billions and billions of dollars on, nobody will really need anymore. California has a unique problem that the country is... California leads a lot, by the way, for the rest of the nation to follow. They're number one in installs year after year. So the problems that they face today, the rest of the country will face in two, five, or 10 years. One of the problems that California faces for example is called the duck curve, and what the duck curve means is you've got all of these solar installs that are producing energy throughout the day. Normally, your grid operators would see a parabolic curve. They'd see a parabola going back to geometry in high school for usage,

Michael Cupps discusses remote working, the four-day workweek and the future of office space. Tenant and Landlord Attorney Todd RothBard talks about Pandemic relief for landlords and tenants and where it's headed.

Any information is not to be considered tax advice or legal advice and does not form an attorney/client relationship. Further, this podcast may be construed as attorney advertising. You should see professional consultation for your individual tax and legal situation. Chip Franklin: Welcome to Practical Tax. I'm Chip Franklin. That is Steve Moskowitz, tax attorney. Steve, this is fascinating where we are right now in the post pandemic world and the remote working and people kind of trickling back in. I know you are making a move for your employees to be better for them and safer and a new location. What's your experience with some of your clients and everybody else? Is remote working going to hang in there or is it starting to go away? Steve Moskowitz: Oh, no. Remote working is alive and well and will be with us for the rest of our lives. A lot of people prefer as a matter of fact, I've seen surveys where a lot of employees said, if I can't work remotely for you, I'll work remotely for somebody else. And if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense because how much time do you spend commuting? First of all, you could use that time to work more or to play more, not to mention the cost of commuting, not to mention you go into the office, you're wearing your fancy duds. If you're at home, you're probably in jammies or sweats, not to mention, how about all those people that have kids and are either home to take care of the kids or close to school. If something happens, you can run right to school as opposed to being in the corporate world. And even if you left, as soon as you got the phone call, it would take you a while to get to the school. So it's an awful lot of advantages. And another thing is that for example, here in San Francisco, a lot of people have left San Francisco and said, well, why should they pay a lot of money for a small, not so hot apartment when they can move to another state, buy a house for what they were paying for rent and also maybe move to a state, doesn't even have an income tax. Not to mention people that say, "Well, I can go to a resort area and work from there." Not to mention all the countries that are saying, "Hey, we'll give you a special visa, come and work in our country. We just like you to stay here and spend some money in our hotels and our restaurants." Chip Franklin: I think I read somewhere, Steve, like 75,000 American professionals moved to Barcelona last year and they're working from Barcelona. And many of them from California. Steve Moskowitz: Well, talk about moving. If you move to Puerto Rico, you can legally avoid most of your federal taxes. Chip Franklin: Well, let's talk a little bit about that with an expert. Michael Cupps is from ActiveOps and these guys, they know this cold and he's nice enough to join us here. Michael, obviously you heard this conversation. It seemed like we were moving towards the possibility of a four-day work week, but then it kind of got flipped with the pandemic where people are working remote. First of all, do you concur with Steve that this is here to stay? Michael Cupps: Oh, absolutely. We see it in our customers and they're the biggest banks and insurance companies on the globe. And they're as much as they try, they're not those employees aren't coming back. Chip Franklin: That should be good for the business, right? I mean guys, right,

Let's start with a guest that's in your backyard. That would be Michael Davidson, not only a really smart investor, but he has a lot of ideas, and he's nice enough to join us here. Can we talk about wills and trusts for just a second here, because this confuses a lot of people. Steve, how many people do you think, watching this right now, don't have a will or a trust? Steve Moskowitz: A lot of them don't have anything. And another thing is, there's a lot of people that have something that's woefully out of date, and if they don't change it, they're leaving everything they have to someone that they now hate, and they will turn over in their graves if they understand that, so this is something... should always be constantly reviewed. What I tell income tax clients is, "Look, we think about your income taxes all year long, we plan all year long, we file a return once a year, and your estate planning, which involves everything you've worked for in a lifetime, everything that you have, whether you got it yourself or if somebody left it for you, why don't you give that the time and respect it deserves?" Chip Franklin: Michael, what's your experience? I mean, have you found that, when you try to sell somebody on getting a trust or a will together, it depends on their age, or are they stubborn, or do they usually go right along with your suggestion? Michael Davidson: I think one of the questions that isn't expressed out loud or asked out loud is, is the next steward prepared? And I think for a lot of us and for a lot of our clients, there's some uncertainty around that, and that's even a conversation that couples haven't really processed together. And so, as a result, there is this inaction that takes place as it relates to getting a will done, getting a trust done. All of us have stuff in our families, and kids, and grandkids, and daughter-in-laws, and son-in-laws, and just that whole dynamic adds this element of uncertainty for the future, and I just think that it's tough for couples to come together and be decisive with that. And so, I really think that the good question to ask is, is the next steward prepared? If they're not, then what needs to happen to get there? And I think walking through that series of questioning, I think can help get an estate plan done. Chip Franklin: Obviously, there are going to be different stages of life. I know both of you guys can address this. I mean, people start thinking about some of these things when they get to be 50, and it's too late, in some cases, for financial planning. But a trust and a will, those have to be constantly reviewed, but why? And Steve, let me ask you real quick, what is it about a will that would change, or a trust that would change from when the kid is 25 to when the kid is 35, if it's still just my money that I'm passing along? Steve Moskowitz: Laws change, taxes change, wants change, relationships change. For example, what if you have a situation where your son marries or divorces, has a child, has six kids, one of them has special needs, somebody's developing differently than somebody else,

What are both the practical and strategic advantages of financial planning for young children, and how are women CEOs faring in the world of CBD start-ups?

You should see professional consultation for your individual tax and legal situation. Chip Franklin: Welcome to yet another edition of Practical Tax, with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz. Steve, you're looking well my friend. Steve Moskowitz: As you Chip, thanks so much. Chip Franklin: There's a lot to talk about with taxes. I know you see tax implications in almost every human behavior, which makes sense. Steve Moskowitz: Of course. Chip Franklin: It is, right? Joining us right now, again, this is an interesting guy. Brandon Neely is not only a financial planner, but he's got an interesting niche, and he joins us here on the Practical Tax Show. Brandon, welcome. Say hi to Steve. Brandon Neely: Hey Steve, thanks for having me. Steve Moskowitz: Hey Brandon, how are you doing? Brandon Neely: Good... go ahead. Chip Franklin: Let's start right away, if we can, with the whole concept of financial planning, and this goes out to both of you guys. I know that they say, "Start young." Are there any other advantages to starting a financial plan for small children? Maybe Steve, you can also explain why the IRS now wants us to have social security numbers out of the womb. Start with you, Brad. Steve Moskowitz: The government likes keeping track of us. Chip Franklin: Yeah. Steve Moskowitz: As far as doing that, for example, if mom and dad have a business, and they employ their child under the age of 18, they don't have to pay social security taxes on that. That's just a little wrinkle in the law for employing your kids under age 18. Chip Franklin: Trump's dad did that, didn't he? If I recall correctly. Steve Moskowitz: They take advantage of every law, which we all should. Chip Franklin: Right. Steve Moskowitz: The other thing is, the banks always have these posters up. If you take a kid, and the day that kid is born, you have an account set up for him, and you make little deposits in there, but regular deposits, by the time that kid has graduated from college, that account can be enormous. Instead of coming out of school saying, "Oh, how am I going to pay all these? That's for my basket weaving classes and these other things," the kid says, "Hey, look at me. I have a big, fat bank account. I can do what I want. I'm not forced to take a job to pay my student loan, and my rent, if mom and dad kick me out." The bottom line is, and I'd love to say, "I just figured this out, get your pencils out," but the financial people over and over and over again have said that if you have a small amount... but regular, that's the trick. It's like exercise. It's got to be regular. There'd be a tremendous amount here, then we can get into, how do we invest the funds, and how much is conservative, and how much is aggressive? I won't even get into that part. Not to mention Chip, I'm always preaching about the benefits of companies having pension plans. How much more if the kid comes to work for mom and dad, and they say, "As part of being an employee here, now you're entitled to the pension plan." It's just tremendous savings. To me, that's a no brainer. Chip Franklin: Brandon, you've obviously been dealing with this a lot, too. What's your take? Brandon Neely: I agree with him.

Steve, there's been a lot in the news recently about interest rates and refis and how that's affecting the country, the industry, and everything that goes along that. I remember in the past, people say, well, interest rates are high people tend to, instead of sell, they do repairs and additions and upkeep and stuff.

Joining us right now is Kevin Lyons. Kevin is the CEO of Anchor Funding and old friend of mine. I've known Kevin for a long time, and he's nice enough to join us here with Steve Moskowitz on Practical Tax. Kevin, hello. Steve Moskowitz: He doesn't look very old, Chip. Chip Franklin: Your right. Kevin Lyons: Thanks Steve. Chip Franklin: Hi you Kevin. How are you? Kevin Lyons: Good guys. How are you? Steve Moskowitz: Great. Chip Franklin: Good. Let's just jump right into this. We've known each other a long time and we've spoken over the last 15 years and we've seen interest rates go up and down. Let's talk about where we are right now. And how do you feel people responding to the higher interest rates? Again, those of us who live in the '70s like Steve and I, they don't seem that high. But how are people responding to you right now when you're talking about everything from new mortgages to refis? Kevin Lyons: Well, we've had a really good run the last few years. So everyone's taken advantage of incredibly low interest rates. But if you look at interest rates over the course of time and you guys obviously remember, and so do I, and any viewers watching. Rates in the '80s and '90s and early 2000s were a lot higher. So when you go from rates in the- Steve Moskowitz: I remember in the 20% bracket. Kevin Lyons: Yeah, exactly. When you got 15% and 10%, that was a good rate. So the sticker shock that's come into play is rates in the twos and threes suddenly becoming fives and almost as high as 6%. So anytime you get that, you're going to get a change of scenery and the scenery's changed. However, it looks pretty good for the long term. Chip Franklin: Yeah. We're both all in California, all three of us. And here's something that always occurred to me. So people might put off buying because the rate went up a little bit, but the housing market doesn't seem to be slowing down at all and it's continuing to move. Does it make sense to still buy at a little bit higher rate to offset the increase in the value in cost of homes as they go forward? Kevin Lyons: That's a very interesting question, and we have that conversation pretty much daily. My personal opinion is yes. And the reason I say that is, and this is obviously my two cents, the Fed has done a really good job of raising rates really quickly, in fact, there's a three quarter point high coming up shortly and another half a percent in November, they've taken such extreme measures in such a short period of time...

This is Ron Cohen. I'm a tax partner with the firm of Greenstein, Rogoff, Olsen & Co., LLP and we're located in beautiful downtown Fremont, California. I appreciate you signing in to listen to my self-indulgent, and sometimes narcissistic comments about the tax system. No Reliance: Take no reliance on anything you hear on this podcast. This is mostly for entertainment and education. In order to get an opinion from me or my firm you have to sign an engagement letter and give us all of the facts. After we do some research about your situation we'll come back and formally give you an opinion. And only then can you use that advice for purposes of entering into any transaction or filing a tax return. Plagiarism is Okay! Everything in the tax rules is from the Internal Revenue Code, its regulations, court cases, and various internal memorandums by the Internal Revenue Service. Lots of lawyers and CPAs write very good articles that we will often attach in the show notes. They are trying to show how smart they are to the public so everyone copies from everyone else, and I certainly want to give them credit. We're not writing any novels, nor creating deep or original thoughts here. No Politics We try to stay out of general politics, however tax law is developed through legislation in Congress and anything that's legislative has its own political ups and downs. And I feel free to comment on that. How I Help: Our firm does around 1400 tax returns for various people. The demographics range from little grandmothers all the way up to high tech executives and multinational corporations. We also specialize in family office services for wealthy groups with far flung entities and we also help those groups with things such as bill paying and taking care of their day-to-day financial operations No Cheerleader for the Tax System: Our tax system is intrusive, an invasion of privacy and it's tedious. You need to look at a 12 step flowchart to figure out in some cases whether you can take your mortgage interest deduction. It is part of the technocratic Administrative State that has built up in this country since World War Two, and I don't like it. Other countries have simplified the tax system in many ways, despite this we always try to get an A+ (not an A-, or a B, or a C) in our work and make sure it is accurate. Well prepared tax returns rarely get audited, and the best tax audit, is the one that never comes! Please let us know if there are specific topics you'd like to hear about in future episodes.

So, it requires a comprehensive view of the business owner in order to do it successfully.” -Chris Vanderzyden “You have to have a comprehensive financial plan done in which you are projecting, "After I exit my business, this is what I want my life to look like. And this is what the financial responsibility will be with that. And so, if I sell my business, will I be able to fulfill those business personal, and financial goals?" -Chris Vanderzyden “We looked at a couple of different exit options, and then came up with the right one that would have fulfilled their goals, both financially and with the business and personal.” -Chris Vanderzyden “One buyer is no buyer.” -Chris Vanderzyden “The purpose is to engage with multiple buyers because that's the way you're going to fulfill your goals to a higher level.” -Chris Vanderzyden “It's a little more intense than selling a business, but it's well worth doing it correctly.” -Chris Vanderzyden “It's very important to recognize that you do need somebody that is going to be on your side of the fence. There's nothing worse for a business owner, “Do they have a transaction, they wander off?” -Chris Vanderzyden “When deciding how you want to exit that business, you also have to understand the value of the company. Integrate that value into your personal financial plan.” -Chris Vanderzyden Ways to Connect with Chris Vanderzyden: Website: https://legacypartnersllp.com/ Ways to Connect with Sarah E.

Steve, you're looking well, my friend. Steve Moskowitz: As you. Thank you, Chip. Chip Franklin: Joining us right now is our first guest today, Greg Mohr. He is known as the Franchise Maven. Anybody that's ever tried to start their own business, on their own or with a franchise, knows the challenges. And he's nice enough to join us here. Greg, hi. Chip Franklin and tax attorney Steve Moskowitz. You had in your past, you did the corporate ladder thing, right? Like a lot of people do, and a lot of our viewers today. Greg Mohr: Correct. Chip Franklin: And at some point along the way, you said... And I think Taco Bell was one of your first, right? You got into the world of franchise growth. First of all, tell us how that came to be. And what was the real attraction of going with a franchise instead of starting out on your own? Greg Mohr: Well, the first time I got into franchising itself was actually right out of high school, when I got one of my first jobs, was working for Taco Bell. I didn't actually realize that at the time, but I learned later that it was actually a master franchise that ran a whole bunch of Taco Bells all over the Sacramento, California area. So I started managing their restaurants for them. And I said, "This is just great, easy thing to do." No matter which one I stepped into, policies and procedures were the same for each one. Nice and smooth. I loved doing that. It was just great, for that one. After I'd been working for a while in various industries, both in the restaurant industry and in the microelectronic circuit field for Motorola Semiconductor, then I started reading some books like Robert Kiyosaki's books, Rich Dad, Poor Dad, realizing that there's something different out there. There's something better than just doing the corporate thing for myself. So I didn't have the latest, greatest idea on how to start a business or get a business going. But I remember back from my days working with Taco Bell, that I really enjoyed how the simplicity of walking into any franchise model, any unit was. And that really made me happy. It was just a really good feeling. So I thought I've got to get back somehow into that franchising space and do that, so I went out there and I started looking at different franchises, got some help from a couple different franchise consultants. And lo and behold, just got into my first franchise and they just took off from there. Chip Franklin: Steve, have you had clients that wanted to start their own businesses and looked at a franchise model? Steve Moskowitz: Oh, absolutely. And everybody's, so many people, their dream is to have their own business. I remember when I was climbing the corporate ladder and I always wanted to have my own firm. And lots and lots of people want to do that, and there's all kinds of different avenues. Like you were saying, starting on your own, going to your franchisees. I've had a number of clients that went the franchise route. Chip Franklin: Yeah. I mean, one of the things that always, I remember in the early on days,

When young athletes come into money, here's why they need expert tax advice and the inflationary world of child care has Americans struggling to balance work and family. And as always taxes.

Well, welcome to another edition of Practical Tax, with tax attorney Steve Moskowitz and Chip Franklin. Steve, this has always intrigued me and that is the athlete that comes into a lot of money when he has never had any money in his life. Steve Moskowitz: Oh yeah. Chip Franklin: I know, because you've done a lot of sports shows. You and I have talked about this in the past and you've talked about luxury taxes and all, but this is something that really touches me. I had a long talk once with MC Hammer about what he went through and all the money he lost. I knew Dexter Manley, you might remember that name from back in the old Washington football team days, and he lost it all, and others. It's always broken my heart because it's difficult for these kids. They bring along everybody they grew up with and everything and they try to give to everyone and then it's gone. I think that's just so sad. Joining us right now is Ali Siam. He is a sports agent who has a lot of experience in this. He's negotiated more than a dozen or so NFL contracts and he's nice enough to join us on Practical Tax. Ali, welcome the show. Say hi to Steve. Steve Moskowitz: Hi. How are you? Ali Siam: Hi, how you guys doing today? Thank you for having me. Chip Franklin: There's a lot in the news, obviously, every year as the different drafts happen. There was a kid on my street who signed a deal with Tampa Bay. He was the 28th pick in the draft in baseball. Here, in Southern California, that happens a lot. He got three-and-a-half million signing bonus, but he's 18, so now he's going to be playing against the best people he's never seen. When he was in high school, he was the best player in the county. Now, he's just another guy. Fortunately, he has a father that will help look out after it. Let me ask you both, and let me start with you, Steve, when we look at this kind of income coming in, how many people are really prepared for that? Steve Moskowitz: Almost nobody. Here's problem number one, when the guys get it, they're really young and they don't realize that the life of a professional athlete is nowhere near the life of most other jobs, and that is a job. You get beaucoup money up front and you spend it, but the problem is most other professions, you wouldn't blink an eye when say how long you would be working. With an athlete, a lot of athletes are finished in their 20s, maybe into their 30s. What other position do you know of that you say, "Oh, 40, are you kidding? 50?" How many football players can only play a couple of seasons because they get injured so much? So, the bottom line is, basically, if I was talking to somebody like this, I'd say, "Look, let's take a look at this contract and figure this is the money you're going to get for a lifetime. So, you're 21 years old, let's say you have another 60 years to go or so, let's divide this and see how much we're getting here." And then what I do is I make it practical, I say, "Look, we're not going to save every penny. Here's a portion of percentage, just blow it. Have a good time, have fun," but it's a percentage.

In this episode, the Huddle Guys talk with Mat Sorensen, CEO of Directed IRA, and a Partner at Kyler Kohler Ostermiller & Sorensen, LLP. Mat has been at the forefront of the self-directed IRA industry since 2006. He writes regularly on retirement, tax, and business topics and is a VIP Contributor at Entrepreneur.com. He is also a contributor for Cryptopedia. Mat is the best-selling author of The Self-Directed IRA Handbook: An Authoritative Guide for Self-Directed Retirement Plan Investors and Their Advisors, a go-to guide for investors, planners, and Mark's competitors. Listen as the Huddle Guys and Mat discuss self-directed IRAs, a type of IRA that can hold investments not allowed by regular IRAs, like real estate and cryptocurrency. They can be in the form of traditional or Roth IRAs, and the investments are managed by the account holder. These IRAs can help you save on taxes and plan effectively for retirement, but they are not talked about enough. Many financial planners do not discuss self-directed IRAs with their clients. Thank goodness for the Huddle Guys! It's time to Huddle Up!

Chris Piazza and Steve Moskowitz discuss the many aspects to having a cannabis business when the product is illegal, interstate business, and will working remotely survive?

Steve, good to have you here as always. Steve Moskowitz: Always a pleasure. Chip Franklin: It's interesting to talk about the many different things that surround tax. In fact, it's almost impossible to find subject matter that's not affected by the government and the internal revenue service, right? Steve Moskowitz: It's funny, but anybody that goes out to dinner with me knows that no matter what you say, somehow that reminds me something about tax. Chip Franklin: Right. Well, this is a topic that we talk about a lot and you've actually done videos before on this, but it's constantly changing. And that is a business of cannabis in the United States, a business that has a built-in irony. The fact that cannabis is still a schedule I controlled substance. Or THC anyway. And so joining us right now is Chris Piazza from Cannabis Devices. And here, Chris, good to have you here with tax attorney, Steve Moskowitz, with Practical Tax. Chris Piazza: Thanks for having me. Thanks for having me. Yeah, Chris with CannaDevices. Chip Franklin: So in just a couple years, your company's done incredibly well. You supply 10 publicly traded cannabis companies, along with a lot of other operators in that business. And throughout all this growth, you guys have supported small businesses, and Steve and I love to talk about the success of small businesses in this country. It is the backbone of this country. You're also a founding member of a nonprofit startup syndicate as well. So let me just pose this question to both you. And I'll start out with, how would you describe the state of America's cannabis success right now? We'll start with you, obviously, Chris. Chris Piazza: It's a growing industry. It's going to keep growing, and ever changing from here. What I think we're starting to see is a little bit more consolidation. We're starting to see some more bigger players taking a little bit more foothold. Now we're starting to see brands where the cannabis dispensaries were before. We're starting to see a lot more brands build, and companies a little bit like mine and the accessories, the non plant touching. It seems to me that the plant itself, the gold rush is over and now the licenses have value. But we're starting to see a lot more consolidation. The east coast is spreading west, and that's my view of the state of it currently. Chip Franklin: Steve, how does that work, if a cannabis business in Illinois wants to work with a cannabis business in California? Does the fact that it's a schedule I controlled substance affect that relationship? Steve Moskowitz: So I got to use the technical term, as a lawyer. So I'll use the proper technical term. There's total craziness here. And what happens is that you have a business that is illegal on the federal side, it's legal in some states, and there's all kinds of problems. And of course, me and taxes, the first thing I look at is, well, what's the taxability? Okay, so number one,

Alec Baldwin didn't pull the trigger? This week, the FBI concluded that actor Alec Baldwin must have pulled the trigger of a prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins last year, and a legal expert has speculated what could happen next for the actor and the investigation. On October 21, 2021, a prop gun being handled by Baldwin discharged on the set of the movie Rust, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, and injuring director Joel Souza. Baldwin has consistently stated that he didn't pull the trigger on the prop gun. The recent FBI analysis of the revolver held by Baldwin during the rehearsal suggested it was in working order and would not have discharged unless it was fully cocked and the trigger was pulled. Special Agent Jose Cortez announced that the FBI did three accidental discharge tests of the gun used by Baldwin to determine if it could have fired without a trigger being pulled. The report's findings led to Baldwin receiving much backlash on social media Monday. Jason Lampert, a litigation partner at Salzano Lampert & Wilson, LLP, believes that prosecutors have several options now that the Baldwin investigation is nearing its conclusion.
