Get a LoanWithout a Home!!! Bad Credit Tenant Loans}

By Julius Giarmarco, Esq.

While there is a present lapse in the estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes, it’s likely that Congress will reinstate both taxes (perhaps even retroactively) some time during 2010. If not, on January 1, 2011, the estate tax exemption (which was $3.5 million in 2009) becomes $1 million, and the top estate tax rate (which was 45% in 2009) becomes 55%. Assuming the federal estate tax (FET) exemption is reinstated at $3.5 million or more, then for most people the FET has been repealed. According to the Tax Policy Center, only five of every 100,000 people who die have estates over $3.5 million.

For married couples with taxable estates, the common planning tool is for each spouse to establish a revocable living trust. Upon the death of the first spouse, an amount equal to his/her FET exemption is allocated to a Credit Shelter Trust (CST). Other terms for the Credit Shelter Trust are Bypass Trust, Family Trust and Residuary Trust. A CST allows the surviving spouse broad access to the assets in the CST without the assets being included in the spouse’s estate. Thus, the CST allows each spouse to leave his/her FET exemption to their children. Without a CST, the first spouse to die ‘wastes’ his/her estate tax exemption.

The provisions that the spouse can enjoy from the CST during his/her lifetime (without causing the assets in the CST to be taxable in the surviving spouse’s estate) are:

1. The spouse can have all of the income of the CST. Treas. Reg. Sec. 25.2518-2(e)(5), Example 4. Alternatively, the trustee can ‘sprinkle’ the income of the CST to children and grandchildren so as to shift that income to lower tax brackets, or can accumulate the income and add it to principal.

2. The spouse can receive principal distributions from the CST (see Paragraphs 5 and 6 below).

3. The spouse can have the power to withdraw the greater of $5,000 or 5% of the principal of the CST each year. IRC Section 2041(b)(2).

4. The spouse can have a testamentary limited power of appointment (LPA) over the assets in the CST. An LPA allows the spouse to ‘rewrite’ the dispositive provisions of the CST. However, the LPA is usually drafted so that the LPA can only be exercised in favor of the grantor’s descendants and/or charities. The LPA cannot be exercised in favor of the spouse, his/her creditors, his/her estate, or the creditors of his/her estate. IRC Section 2041(b)(1).

5. The spouse can be the sole trustee of the CST, provided that distributions to the spouse are limited to an ‘ascertainable standard’ (i.e., health, education, maintenance and support). IRC Section 2041(b)(1)(A).


6. Distributions to the spouse in excess of the ascertainable standard can be made from the CST if an independent co-trustee is named to serve with the spouse, but discretion on distributions to the spouse must be limited solely to the independent co-trustee.

7. The spouse can have the power to remove the co-trustee and appoint an individual or corporate successor co-trustee that is not related or subordinate to the spouse (within the meaning of IRC Section 672(c)). Rev. Rul. 95-58.

The deceased spouse’s estate, over and above the amount allocated to the CST, will pass estate tax free to the Marital Trust because of the unlimited marital deduction. When the surviving spouse dies, the assets in the Marital Trust (along with the assets in the spouse’s Living Trust) will be subject to estate taxes, but only after subtracting the surviving spouse’s FET exemption.

The two most common types of Marital Trusts are the General Power of Appointment (GPA) Trust and the Qualified Terminable Interest Property (QTIP) Trust. Both types of Marital Trusts must provide the surviving spouse with all of the income and may (but need not) provide the spouse with principal. The typical GPA Marital Trust allows the spouse to determine the ultimate beneficiaries of the Marital Trust upon his/her death, and usually allows the spouse to withdraw the principal of the Marital Trust during his/her lifetime without restriction. The QTIP Marital Trust, on the other hand, does not allow the spouse to determine the ultimate beneficiaries and usually restricts the spouse to principal as needed for health, education, maintenance and support. But, to add flexibility to a QTIP Marital Trust, the spouse may be given a $5,000/5% annual withdrawal power and/or a limited power of appointment over the QTIP Trust.

A CST has the following advantages: It utilizes both spouses’ FET exemptions, while giving the surviving spouse access to and control over the assets in the CST; it preserves assets for the couple’s descendants (in case the spouse remarries); and it protects the spouse and descendants from creditors.

But, there are disadvantages to a CST as well. The surviving spouse’s access to the assets in the CST, albeit broad, is (as noted above) restricted. Moreover, if the spouse withdraws more from the CST than permitted, he/she may be accountable to the ultimate beneficiaries of the CST (i.e., children and grandchildren). The CST also adds complexity to the spouse’s life in that separate records for the CST must be maintained and annual income tax returns (Form 1041) must be filed for the remainder of the spouse’s lifetime. And, if a co-trustee over the CST is used, the spouse will have to cooperate with that trustee.

For many couples with non-taxable estates, particularly those with children all from the same marriage, the disadvantages of a CST outweigh the advantages. Therefore, they would prefer to simply leave their estate to a GPA Marital Trust for the surviving spouse. But, if their estates were to increase and/or the FET exemption was reduced by future legislation, they still want the ability to use both spouses’ FET exemptions. It is possible to accomplish both objectives with a Disclaimer Trust.

Disclaimer Trusts became popular after the 2001 Tax Act was passed because of the increasing FET exemption and the uncertainty created by the Act. With a Disclaimer Trust, a married couple’s revocable living trusts leave the deceased spouse’s entire estate to a GPA Marital Trust. The CST is then funded only if the surviving spouse disclaims (refuses) part of the deceased spouse’s estate. This enables the spouse to decide how much to keep outright (to be taxed at the second death) and the amount to be allocated to the CST (where it is shielded from estate tax at the second death). In making an informed decision to disclaim and how much to disclaim, one must examine the size of the combined estate, the spouse’s age and health (which impacts the spouse’s needs for funds), whether minor children will be beneficiaries of the CST, the potential appreciation of the assets not disclaimed, and the status of the FET exemption.

For example, assume a married couple has combined assets of $4.5 million, which are evenly divided between their revocable living trusts. Each trust provides that 100% of the trust property is allocated to a GPA Marital Trust upon the death of the grantor-spouse. But, if the surviving spouse disclaims all or a portion of the decedent’s estate, the disclaimed portion passes to a CST. If, at the time of the first death, both husband and wife are in their seventies or eighties and the FET exemption is $3.5 million, it might make sense for the spouse to disclaim $1 million of the deceased spouse’s $2.25 million estate. This will leave the spouse with a $3.5 million taxable estate (i.e., $2.25 million in the spouse’s living trust and $1.25 million in the GPA Marital Trust), which will be completely sheltered from estate taxes by the spouse’s FET exemption.

But, if at the first death the surviving spouse is only in his/her forties or early fifties, the decision might be to forgo the disclaimer. The younger the spouse, the more likely the estate will not increase, but instead be consumed and decline in value. This would be particularly true if there are young children involved. Moreover, the spouse will have ample time to gift a portion of the combined estate to children and grandchildren (using his/her $13,000 annual gift tax exclusion) so that there may be no estate tax due upon the death of the surviving spouse.

For couples whose estates are below the estate tax exemption, a disclaimer trust still makes sense. It’s possible the estate could grow through appreciation, inheritances, and/or by acquiring life insurance on one or both spouses’ lives. It’s also possible the estate tax exemption will be reduced by Congress in the future. The disclaimer trust avoids saddling the surviving spouse with the time and expenses of administering a CST, unless funding a CST would result in an estate tax savings.

In order to be a ‘qualified’ disclaimer for FET purposes, the disclaimer must meet the following five requirements set forth in Internal Revenue Code Section 2518(b):

1. It must be an irrevocable and unqualified refusal to accept an interest in property;

2. It must be in writing, signed by the spouse;

3. It must be received by the trustee within nine (9) months of the grantor-spouse’s death;

4. The spouse must not have accepted the disclaimed property or any of its benefits; and

5. As a result of the disclaimer, the interest must pass without any direction from the spouse.

Because IRC Section 2518 prohibits the surviving spouse from holding a power to direct the disposition of the disclaimed property, the spouse cannot be given a limited power of appointment over the CST (unless limited by an ascertainable standard). See Treas. Reg. Sec. 25-2518-2(e)(2) and Treas. Reg. Sec. 25-2518-2(e)(5), Example 5. Nor can the spouse (either as a beneficiary or as the sole trustee) have any discretion over the CST’s property. But, the spouse can serve as the sole trustee of the CST if the trust agreement contains mandatory distributions (i.e., no discretion on part of the trustee) or ascertainable standards for distributions of principal and income. Treas. Reg. Secs. 25-2518-2(e)(2) and 25-2518-2(e)(5), Examples 11 and 12.

There are also state law requirements for making a disclaimer. Failure by the surviving spouse to satisfy all of the federal requirements set forth above will result in the disclaimer being treated as a taxable gift from the spouse to the remainder beneficiaries of the CST (i.e., the children and grandchildren).

In summary, for a married couple whose combined estate may or may not exceed the FET exemption, a disclaimer trust will provide the couple with the greatest degree of flexibility. But, for couples with children from a prior marriage, a disclaimer trust will not guarantee that the children will receive an inheritance (as would be the case where the CST is funded automatically with the deceased spouse’s FET exemption). Even with a first marriage, the surviving spouse could remarry and leave the estate to the new spouse with a disclaimer trust. Finally, care must be taken immediately after the first spouse’s death (when the spouse may be unable to cope with making financial decisions) to protect the qualified disclaimer. Thus, the flexibility found is disclaimer trusts may not be right for every couple and, therefore, the couple should consult with an experienced estate planning attorney.

If you have Alabama land for sale, what type of real estate broker would you want to list your property with? You need an aggressive Real Estate Broker working for you if it is important for you to move the land; otherwise you might as well try to sell the land yourself. You should do your homework before selecting a broker. I have over twenty years experience in buying and selling land and can definitely save you some time.

Once you decide you are selling your Alabama land, choosing the broker to help you can be a tough decision to make. The last thing you want is for this to be a long, drawn out process. There are things you can do to increase the odds of selling your land quickly and smoothly. What are they? One way is to choose a qualified Real Estate Broker. There are many ways to increase the odds of picking an aggressive broker. I suggest you look at the broker’s affiliations and qualifications. That means Realtor Land Institute. Having completed the Realtor Land Institute usually means they will have many connections to other Realtors in the land business. This also means they will understand the back end financing for the buyer. Pay attention to whether the broker is designated as an ALC (Accredited Land Consultant) which means they have sold millions of dollars worth of land and have also completed extensive classes on land sales. The Accredited Land Consultant designation proves that the broker is well trained and cares about what they are doing. This just adds to the amount of exposure you stand to give your Alabama Land for Sale.


It is a great idea to interview your prospective broker. Ask about their experience in selling land in the county that your land is in. Ask how much land they have sold in that county and what they sold it for (dollar value). You might also ask about the above mentioned affiliations and designations. During the interview you should be able to feel their enthusiasm for Alabama Land for Sale. Be sure to question how and where they advertise their listings. It is not just enough to list with a broker. You want one that advertises extensively on the internet and some in the newspaper. Basically, he should do a good job at networking. By doing this, he or she should have many contacts which can help in the sale of your Alabama land.

Listing your Land for Sale in Alabama is a crucial part of selling your property so you need to make sure you take time up front to find the right real estate broker. This process may take longer than you expected so you just have to be patient. It will pay off in the end when the buyer doesn’t have as many problems with the land transaction. The more experience you have in selling land the more you will realize that you should choose an aggressive real estate broker.

Nothing is more dangerous than having the ability to attain things that you cannot actually afford. It is this form of borrowing economy in the form of credit cards and other credit lending institutions that have led to a huge percentage of Americans getting into debt traps that seem impossible to get out of. If you feel that you have made a few poor credit judgments too many, and the debt is threatening to overwhelm you, you should get the help of Financial Advisors West Des Moines. Browse website for more details.

Getting the numbers right

According to finance experts, you are not supposed to spend more than 28 percent of your gross income on household expenses. Also, your income to debt ratio should not exceed 36 percent. The things that affect this ratio include:


* The neighborhood where you decide to live. If you are living in an uptown and expensive neighborhood, you will be forced to spend more, and this could lead into excess debt.

* The taxes and interest rates associated with your real estate property. Many people rarely think about these factors yet they dramatically change once debt to income ratio.

Financial Advisors West Des Moines will help you calculate and get the numbers right. Once you know the numbers you are expected to save and use respectively, you will be able to manage your finances better.

The perils of being a guarantor

Most of the time, when someone approaches you with a proposition to co-sign a loan, people accept because of ideals such as loyalty and hoping the favor would bex reciprocated someday. Unfortunately, when you co-sign another person’s loan, you are agreeing to foot the bill should the person decide to default. This is too much of a risk to take. Many people have been left with huge debts to repay after the people they cosigned loans for went bankrupt or failed to repay the loan.

Beating the temptation of borrowing from the 401k

Another poor financial K. The people who sell these loans make them appear simple and appealing. However, if you happen to leave the job before repaying the loan, your retirement savings will dip dramatically.

These are some of the debt traps that Financial Advisors West Des Moines can help you avoid. Private Asset Advisory Group LLC is one of the best companies offering these services.

Like any business, you need startup capital to be successful. Most business experts list lack of adequate startup funding as the primary reason businesses fail. Your startup passive income business will not succeed on a shoestring budget as many are trying to do.

Here’s why you need capital to create this business. Let’s say you have $10,000 or maybe even $50,000 to invest right now. And let’s say you find strong earning, diversified passive income systems that actually double your money in a year. That’s a $10,000 to $50,000 profit each year. That’s great, but when you’re building a retirement portfolio, or want to save up for your dream home, or send your children to college – this won’t be enough to achieve your goals.

Of course, the plan is to compound these gains over a number of years. But the longer your plan takes the more likely roadblocks will slow you down and you may need to dip into your investments to survive – for a health crisis, a career change, a downturn in your career, care for an elderly parent …

So, to accomplish real wealth building and get off the slow treadmill that too many of us are caught up in, you may want to obtain startup capital, just like most business ventures do to get underway. You need to capitalize your passive income business dream!

Let’s say you invest your $50,000 in savings and make 6% a month. That’s $3,000 a month. Not bad. But if you could obtain $300,000 in savings and after the debt service net 4% or more a month, that’s a $12,000 net monthly return. Much better.

For some, this may seem unusual – to obtain capital for investment purposes. However, this business model has been functioning in the banking industry for decades.

The banks pay you 1% on your savings account deposits, then lend your funds out for credit card purchases or auto loans at a cost to the borrower of 12%. And, they pocket the difference on your money! Now, you can use the same leverage when you obtain capital to start a passive income business.

But how do you obtain startup capital for a passive income business? This kind of business is of course not your typical brick and mortar establishment, and borrowing money for investing has certain restrictions. But it can be done, even in today’s extremely challenging lending environment.

Our favorite avenue for startup capital was Non Personal Guarantor funding, where no one is personally responsible to pay the loan back. This is the type of funding that well-established companies and wealthy individuals obtain. Do you think that when Donald Trump obtains investment capital for a new venture, that he signs over his name and his fortune to guarantee payback? Not a chance. If that were the case, then one of his five or so corporate bankruptcies would have reduced him to nothing long ago.

But Non Personal Guarantor (Non PG) funding is difficult to obtain with credit so tight in todays lending environment. We are still testing various Non PG systems, but you may want to consider PG funding for the time being until the lending situation improves. PG funding is delivering consistently, and since we have many high returning passive income systems to ensure loan payback and profitability, we’re comfortable using PG systems until other methods start to deliver again.

So jumpstart your financial future with high levels of funding in your passive income business, just like any other business requires. The companies that have succeeded have always, always had high levels of startup funding. Why shouldn’t you?

Good luck in all your investing!

What do you do if you have an unhappy marriage?

It is common for couples these days to resolve their unhappiness by seeking a divorce. However, things do not have to end up that way. Here are 4 tips to help you end the unhappiness in a marriage without going through the divorce procedures.

1. Resolve problems together

First of all, you have to remember that there are no perfect marriages. Every couple faces problems and arguments but the key issue is how these are resolved. When you are faced with financial, health or even emotional problems, do not dwell on the issues or find faults with each other. That is not going to solve your problems. Instead, take these difficulties as challenges and solve them together. Staying positive will help to make you grow stronger both as an individual and as a couple and thus help to bond your marriage closer.


2. Rekindle the passion

A lot of married couples tend to forget why and how they fell in love with each other in the first place. These days, most couples are very busy with their careers and family so they forgot to appreciate each other’s company. Over time, they feel that they have landed themselves in an unhappy marriage and start to consider a divorce. Sadly, they feel that a breakup is the only way to end their unhappiness. There is really no need for things to get to that extent, unless you are in an abusive relationship.

You should rekindle that passion that had caused both of you to fall madly in love during the good old days. You can look through the old photographs together or even revisit the places where you used to frequent during your courtship days. Make it a point to spend time alone together each day or at least once a week. You can show your love for each other by buying or making little gifts to give to each other. You can also plan for getaway trips occasionally or have a quiet dinner at a restaurant, away from the kids. This will help to fire up that old flame you have for each other again.

3. Maintain an open communication

Maintaining an open communication is important in order to let your spouse know what you are thinking and feeling. Your wants and needs can then be made known to each other, otherwise, the danger of drifting apart is high.

4. Seek professional help

This is my last point because many couples prefer to use this only as a last resort. Usually it is because they feel awkward with a third party intruding in their private lives. Many might not be prepared to be honest with each other and with themselves, especially not in front of an outsider.

However, this marriage counselor will be a great help to you if you have tried many other methods but nothing seems to work. Being a professional, the counselor will be able to lead both of you to find out what had really gone wrong in your marriage and how you can remediate the issues without having to file for a divorce.

In fact, if things cannot be resolved on your own and you feel shy about seeing your local marriage counselor, you might want to consider consulting an online marriage counselor instead. This expert will be able to help you resolve your differences but you do not have to meet the counselor to get help. Alternatively, you can also get additional help from sources such as ebooks which would give you help on how to save your marriage or how to get your ex spouse back.

The above are just 4 tips which you could use to help you end an unhappy marriage. Regardless of which method you try, you will be able to see some results. Staying positive in your thinking and being able to understand, forgive and have patience is vital to your success at saving your marriage.

As we endured this past election season, change is a word that we heard a lot. Everyone seems to run on a platform of change, yet I wonder if politicians really understand the change process.

An interesting question to debate is whether or not people are naturally resistant to change. The reality is that we all have some change that we naturally embrace and that which we naturally resist. So when implementing change in an organization, some people will naturally be more agreeable to change than others. I have found that most people are willing to change if they understand and buy in to the need for change, and understand exactly what they are supposed to do to change. The second point is key. Sometimes we as managers interpret actions on the part of employees as an unwillingness to change, but the real issue is that we havent given them enough information so that they know what to do.

I work with organizations to implement change. It sometimes involves change on a broad scope such as changing the culture of the organization. In other cases, it may be something on a much smaller scale such as implementing a new process or system. Irregardless of the scope of the change to be implemented, I have found that there are three essential dimensions that must be addressed if change is going to be successful.


The first dimension is cognitive. The purpose of the cognitive dimension is to make those are affected by the change aware of three thingswhy there is a need to change, what needs to change, and how they are specifically involved in the change initiative. This is accomplished through multiple means which includes memos, meetings, videos and any other communication media which conveys the information to the organization. The cognitive activities create awareness and provide information.

Many change initiatives only address the cognitive dimension and usually fail. This dimension creates very little personal motivation to change. The other two dimensions add motivational factors which increase the likelihood of a successful change initiative.

The second dimension is behavior. The purpose of the behavioral dimension to use the most basic principle of psychology to reinforce change. The basic truth is that behavior that gets rewarded will be repeated while behavior that gets punished will stop. Most change initiatives usually involve some sort of behavior change. Often when trying to change culture for instance, no effort is put into examining the current reward and recognition systems to ensure that they are consistent with the changes desired.

The behavioral dimension sometimes becomes the ultimate test for senior management. The test comes when they have to deal with high performers who refuse to adopt change. Every successful leader such as Jack Welch at GE, Larry Bossidy at Allied Signal, and Al Stubblefield at Baptist Health Care faced the same situation and their response was unanimousthose who cannot embrace the new culture and change must leave irregardless of performance.

The third dimension is social. The purpose of the social dimension is to let those impacted by change to experience first hand what change looks like. It involves two things. One is that the new change must be supported and role modeled by senior leadership. People in the organization must see the senior leaders willing to change.

The other is that people are more likely to embrace change if they had had the opportunity to participate in making the change happen. Giving people a voice in how to change helps their buy in and motivation for change.

Change initiatives will have a much greater chance of success when all three dimensionscognitive, behavior, and social are addressed.
