FOUR NUMBERS YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW

Out2News.comWhen it comes to your finances, you might easily overlook some of the numbers that really count. Here are four to pay attention to now that might really matter in the future.

1. Retirement plan contribution rate

What percentage of your salary are you contributing to a retirement plan? Making automatic contributions through an employer-sponsored plan such as a 401(k) or 403(b) plan is an easy way to save for retirement, but this out-of-sight, out-of-mind approach may result in a disparity between what you need to save and what you actually are saving for retirement. Checking your contribution rate and increasing it periodically can help you stay on track toward your retirement savings goal. .

Some employer retirement plans let you sign up for automatic contribution rate increases each year, which is a simple way to bump up the percentage you’re saving over time. In addition, try to boost your contributions when you receive a pay raise. Consider contributing at least enough to receive the full company match (if any) that your employer offers.

2. Credit score

When you apply for credit, such as a mortgage, a car loan, or a credit card, your credit score is one of the tools used by lenders to evaluate your creditworthiness. Your score will likely factor into the approval decision and affect the terms and the interest rate you’ll pay.

The most common credit score that creditors consider is a FICO© Score, a three-digit number that ranges from 300 to 850. This score is based on a mathematical formula that uses information contained in your credit report. In general, the higher your score, the lower the credit risk you pose.

Each of the three major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) calculates FICO® scores using different formulas, so you may want to check your scores from all three (fees apply). It’s also a good idea to get a copy of your credit report at least annually to check the accuracy of the information upon which your credit score is based. You’re entitled to one free copy of your credit report every 12 months from each of the three credit reporting agencies. You can get your copy by visiting annualcreditreport.com.

3. Debt-to-income ratio

Your debt-to-income ratio (DTI) is another number that lenders may use when deciding whether to offer you credit. A DTI that is too high might mean that you are overextended. Your DTI is calculated by adding up your major monthly expenses and dividing that figure by your gross monthly income. The result is expressed as a percentage. For example, if your monthly expenses total $2,200 and your gross monthly income is $6,800, your DTI is 32%.

Lenders decide what DTIs are acceptable, based on the type of credit. For example, mortgage lenders generally require a ratio of 36% or less for conventional mortgages and 43% or less for FHA mortgages when considering overall expenses.

Once you know your DTI, you can take steps to reduce it if necessary. For example, you may be able to pay off a low-balance loan to remove it from the calculation. You may also want to avoid taking on new debt that might negatively affect your DTI. Check with your lender if you have any questions about acceptable DTIs or what expenses are included in the calculation.

4. Net worth

One of the key big-picture numbers you should know is your net worth, a snapshot of where you stand financially. To calculate your net worth, add up your assets (what you own) and subtract your liabilities (what you owe). Once you know your net worth, you can use it as a baseline to measure financial progress.

Ideally, your net worth will grow over time as you save more and pay down debt, at least until retirement. If your net worth is stagnant or even declining, then it might be time to make some adjustments to target your financial goals, such as trimming expenses or rethinking your investment strategy.

Olive Garden Hosts Jensen Beach Chamber June Business Luncheon

Out2News.com

In Photo: Speaker for June Luncheon is – Rick Hatcher – Executive Director TC Sports Commission

Jensen Beach — Today, the Olive Garden family of 800+ restaurants is evolving the brand with our customers’ favorites in mind. With reinvigorated dishes, a refreshed website, a restructured logo, and remodeling of select restaurants, we aim to make every guest experience feel more like modern Italy.

Keeping with modern-day Italian traditions, we’re expanding our menu to provide more choices, variety and better-for-you options. Our food is prepared with fresh ingredients presented simply with a focus on flavor and quality that is uniquely Italian.

We also believe that life is better together and we know everyone is happiest when we’re with family. Whether that’s family by relation or by choice; traditional, blended or extended; neighbors, coworkers or teams; friends, groups or just “the gang.” We love everyone like family. And, at Olive Garden this approach extends beyond our favorite dishes, promoting togetherness in everything we do.

The Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce is located in downtown historic Jensen Beach. Through seminars, workshops and monthly luncheons the Chamber provides members with many opportunities to network and enhance businesses.

Jensen Beach is not only considered one of the most charming places to vacation in Florida, but our quaint community was also recently named as one of the top places to retire in the United States!

You can feel the “Old Florida” charm when you visit Jensen Beach – a unique riverfront town over a century old. Hutchinson Island beaches are natural and captivating.

With its perfect climate, natural beauty and warm hospitality, Jensen Beach and Hutchinson Island offer lots of things to do – great fishing spots, popular events, challenging golf courses, wonderful dining choices, quality lodging facilities, and unlimited shopping opportunities from a regional mall, to unique boutiques and art galleries.

From the scenic coastline of Hutchinson Island to the historic shops of Jensen Beach through the lagoons of Sewall’s Point along the tree-lined streets of Rio… this is Jensen Beach.

DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE MEMORY LOSS
WHEN PLANNING FOR RETIREMENT

Out2News.comWhen planning for retirement, an important factor that is often overlooked is the potential for declining cognitive skills associated with aging. Cognitive impairment (CI), often attributable to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, can have profound implications for your overall health and well-being, particularly during retirement. The cost of care can absorb income and significantly deplete retirement savings. It can also deprive you of the ability to effectively manage your financial affairs.
Cognitive impairment — a growing concern

The possibility of suffering from some form of cognitive impairment later in life is real. Dementia affects approximately 2.4 to 5.5 million Americans. Its prevalence increases with age: 5% in persons ages 71 to 79, 24% in those ages 80 to 89, and 37% in those 90 and older.1 One in eight adults age 60 and older (12.7%) experiences confusion or memory loss that is happening more often or getting worse. Unfortunately, among these individuals, only 19.3% discuss these changes with a health-care provider. Additionally, 34.5% of those affected by CI live alone.2
Financial impact of the cost of care

Dementia, including Alzheimer’s, is the most costly disease in the United States and is set to increase like no other. In 2016, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia will cost the United States an estimated $236 billion. By 2050, this number is expected to grow to more than $1.2 trillion. Among all nursing home residents, more than 64% have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. Alzheimer’s is the sixth highest cause of death in the United States.3

Unfortunately, those suffering from advanced stages of cognitive impairment often require long-term care. The cost of care can quickly deplete your retirement savings and affect the quality of life for you and your family, leaving little or no income or savings. Average costs of long-term care include the following:4

$6,235 per month, or $74,820 per year, for a semi-private room in a nursing home
$6,965 per month, or $83,580 per year, for a private room in a nursing home
$3,293 per month for a one-bedroom unit in an assisted living facility
$21 per hour for a home health aide
$19 per hour for homemaker services
$67 per day, or roughly $2,010 per month, for services in an adult day health-care center

The cost of long-term care depends on the type and duration of care you need, the health-care provider you use, and where you live. While one-third of 65-year-olds may never need long-term care, 20% will need it for more than five years.5
Loss of ability to manage finances

Your financial plan should consider not only the potential cost of care if you or your spouse suffer from cognitive impairment, but also determine who will make financial decisions about your care.

Even if you suffer from mild cognitive impairment (MCI), you may find it more difficult to manage investments or a household budget. If you are the primary money manager and experience declining cognitive skills, your spouse could be left financially vulnerable.
Make it part of your plan

A comprehensive financial and legal plan is important. It is helpful to prepare as early as possible. Some families use the services of an elder law attorney.

There may come a time when you can no longer make decisions for yourself, including financial and health-care decisions. This can create a hardship for a caregiver trying to conduct financial transactions and make medical decisions. Several types of legal documents can be written before they are needed to help you and family members through this difficult time. These documents include, but are not limited to, an advance medical directive, a medical power of attorney or health-care proxy, and a durable power of attorney, which allows a representative or agent to make financial decisions and transactions on your behalf, should you become unable to do so.

There are generally three ways to pay for long-term care expenses: use your own income and savings, share the cost of care through some form of private insurance, and/or seek the assistance of state or federal government programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid. The choices you make will likely depend on several factors, including your financial and family situation, your age, and your state of residence. In any case, it’s wise to consider the ramifications of cognitive impairment when planning for retirement.

WHAT IS A PET TRUST?

Out2News.comA pet trust is an arrangement to provide for the care and financial support of your pet(s) upon your disability or death. You fund the trust with property or cash that can be used to provide for your pet based on your instructions in the trust document.

Your pet trust should name a trustee who will carry out your instructions for the care of your pet, including handling and disbursement of trust funds and turning your pet over to the person or entity you designate to serve as your pet’s caregiver. The trustee and caregiver could be the same person or entity.

As with most trusts, you can create your pet trust while you’re alive (an inter vivos or living trust) or at your death through your will (a testamentary trust). In either case, you can generally change the terms of your pet trust at any time during your lifetime to accommodate changing circumstances. If you create an inter vivos trust, you can fund it with cash or property either during your life (needed if the trust is to care for your pet if you become incapacitated) or at your death through your will. A testamentary trust is only funded after you die.

Some of the instructions to consider for your pet trust include: provisions for food and diet, daily routines, toys, medical care and grooming, how the trustee or caregiver is to document expenditures for reimbursement, whether the trust will insure the caregiver for any injuries or claims caused by your pet, and the disposition of your pet’s remains.

You may also want to name a person or organization to take your pet should your trust run out of funds. Also consider naming a remainder beneficiary to receive any funds or property remaining in the trust after your pet dies.

A potential problem arises if your pet is expected to live for more than 21 years after your death. That’s because, in many states, the “rule against perpetuities” forbids a trust from lasting beyond a certain period of time, usually 21 years after the death of an identified person. However, almost every state has laws relating to pet trusts that address this issue in particular and allow for the continued maintenance of the trust, even if its terms would otherwise violate the rule.

Note that there are costs and expenses associated with the creation of a trust.

Half Of Searches Voice Activated by 2020

Out2News.comA new report by iProspect offers a glimpse into the trends and opportunities regarding paid search marketing.

Google AdWords data showed strong mobile growth in terms of both impressions and clicks.

Volume on desktops and tablets, however, was down, indicating an overall decrease in demand for those devices.

Cost per click (CPC) increased across all devices, reaching the highest CPC recorded since this report’s inception in 2014.

Mobile CPC saw a particularly significant increase, up 40% year-over-year, further closing the gap on desktop.

Half of searches voice activated by 2020Voice search is quickly becoming the search method of choice for many consumers, says the report.

Today, 500 million people use a voice search-powered digital assistant of some kind, and half of all searches will be voice searches by 2020.

This behavioral shift is ushering in a rise in longer, more conversational queries, causing savvy advertisers to refocus their keyword strategy to ensure it includes question-based keywords such as who, what, when, where, why and how, as well as qualifying phrases such as near me.

ALTERNATIVES TO LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE

Out2News.comThe costs of long-term care can be overwhelming, potentially exhausting retirement income and savings. You may be thinking about buying long-term care insurance (LTCI) to help cover some of the potential costs of long-term care, but LTCI can be expensive, and if you do buy the coverage, you probably hope you never have to use it. A complete statement of coverage, including exclusions, exceptions, and limitations, is found only in the LTC policy. It should be noted that carriers have the discretion to raise their rates and remove their products from the marketplace.

The prospect of paying costly premiums for LTCI that you may never use might not appeal to you. But there are alternatives worth considering.

Self-insure

You could use your personal savings and retirement income to pay for long-term care expenses (self-insurance). While this option may be appealing, there may be some drawbacks. Depending on the type of long-term care, where that care is provided, and for how long, it’s possible that you could run out of savings while still needing care. Also, using your own savings and income for long-term care costs may affect the financial well-being of a spouse or other dependents. And you may not have anything left to pass on to your heirs when you die.

Life insurance to pay for long-term care

One of the risks of buying LTCI is that you may spend thousands of dollars in premiums and never use the insurance. As an alternative, you may be able to use life insurance to help pay for long-term care expenses. For instance, some insurers offer policies that combine long-term care insurance with permanent life insurance. While these “combination” policies may differ, they generally offer a pool of money that can be used to pay monthly expenses associated with long-term care. If you don’t use the policy for long-term care, then it will pay a death benefit to your designated beneficiaries if the policy is in force at your death.

Alternatively, you might be able to add an acceleration rider to your life insurance policy that will allow you to tap into (accelerate) your death benefit for long-term care expenses. Again, if you don’t use the death benefit for long-term care costs, the policy will pay the death benefit to the beneficiaries you name in the policy. In any case, before buying a policy, you should have a need for life insurance and you should evaluate the policy on its merits as life insurance. Optional benefit riders are available for an additional fee and are subject to contractual terms, conditions, and limitations as outlined in the policy and may not benefit all investors. Any payments used for covered long-term care expenses would reduce (and are limited to) the death benefit and can be much less than those of a typical long-term care policy. Any guarantees are contingent on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a joint federal and state government program that helps people with low income and assets pay for some or all of their health-care bills, including some costs associated with long-term care. Qualifying for Medicaid and covered services is based on federal requirements and eligibility rules, which vary from state to state. Generally, to be eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain preconditions, which include income and asset levels that meet your state’s eligibility requirements. You may need to exhaust your savings to qualify for Medicaid. Once the state determines that you’re eligible for Medicaid, the state will make an additional determination of whether you qualify for long-term care services, based on whether you need assistance with personal care and other service needs, such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, and transferring (to or from a bed or chair).

The Sade Group Hosts Ribbon Cutting at their Stuart location

Out2News.com

STUART, Fla. – Private wealth management practice, The Sade Group, hosted a Ribbon Cutting celebration at their Stuart waterfront location on Thursday, May 11.

Scott Sade, managing director of the firm, along with Jody Zirn and Robin Miley, were joined by Congressman Brian Mast, City Commissioner Troy McDonald and the Stuart/Martin Chamber of Commerce ambassadors and staff, including President Joe Catrambone, as they officially marked two years at their Stuart office and their new membership with the Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce.

The celebration included live entertainment, a BBQ truck, appetizers and drinks. One-hundred attendees toured The Sade Group offices and enjoyed the beautiful view of the St. Lucie River.

The Sade Group Private Wealth Management, LLC was created in May 2015 by Scott Sade, its Managing Director. After servicing clients, primarily in major wire houses for 33 years, Scott wanted the ability to provide personal financial and private banking services, free from many of the inherent conflicts of interest that exist in big bank brokerage firms.

“Doing what’s right for our clients and sitting on the same side of the table with them has allowed me to build a clientele of folks with whom I enjoy doing business” Sade says. “Helping clients meet their financial goals is tremendously rewarding.”

The Sade Group also hosts several seminars throughout the year and is committed to providing educational opportunities for all residents in the community to communicate ongoing financial affairs. Future seminars can be found on their website, sadepwm.com.

The professionals at Sade Group Private Wealth Management provide multigenerational financial planning to individuals, families and small business owners. The firm focuses on delivering high-touch, comprehensive wealth management, investment management, retirement planning and estate planning advice. To learn more, visit sadepwm.com.

Are Your Investments in Good Hands?

Out2News.comIn today’s political and economic environment, change is a constant. This year alone, we’ve seen remarkable market volatility and unprecedented political events, like the United Kingdom’s surprising vote to leave the European Union. Plus, we’re on the cusp of an entirely new White House administration. About the only thing we can count on is that things are going to be different—possibly very different—and soon. Our world will keep evolving and requiring us to adapt.

For financial services professionals, adaptability is now more important than ever. Our industry is under substantial flux with new technologies entering the landscape, changing the way we do business, and a marked shift in regulatory oversight.

You may have heard rumblings about a rule released by the Department of Labor (DOL) in April, which we call “the fiduciary rule.” Essentially, it requires individuals giving investment advice to retirement accounts to act in their clients’ best interests. While this sounds simple on the surface, it involves a lot of complexity. We are working to develop new solutions and opportunities that are designed to fit the needs of retirement investors, and I’m personally excited about the innovation happening in financial services right now. Is your advisor?

Getting a gauge of your advisor’s attitude about the DOL fiduciary rule can tell you a lot about his or her approach to serving you. Here are some questions to ask and things to listen for:

• “Can you explain the DOL fiduciary rule to me?”—Listen for positive language and optimism about the future of advice for retirement investors. You may want to be wary of any financial professional who dismisses the rule as insignificant, because it will have far-reaching impacts on the way we deliver advice. This could be indicative of a lack of information or preparation.

• “How will the rule affect my account?”—Even if your advisor doesn’t have explicit details yet, you’ll be looking to hear some reassurance that they’re getting ready to act in your best interests and that they’re working on the back end to determine the full impact of the rule.

• “What resources do you have supporting you?”—Complying with the rule is a complex task, so it’s important your advisor has access to support and resources to help with the heavy lifting. For example, LPL Financial provides educational resources and support infrastructure to help me.

If you’re looking for an advisor who can assist you in this time of change, give me a call.

Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House
Hosts May “Women’s Power Lunch”

Out2News.com

In photo: Thanks Anne Warner for being our M.C.

Jensen Beach -– The Women’s Power Lunch, started by Anne Thompson Schafer, celebrating their 15th year of connecting powerful women in business at Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House.

The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House location is intrinsically unique, as it sits over-hanging the river’s edge. This special touch came when it was built by the famous historic movie star, Frances Langford. With such an appropriate placement, it gives it’s customers the most spectacular panoramic views. These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends, has grown into a calling list of over three hundred women, and an attendance of over one hundred women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another!

The energy that they all have is wonderful! The friendship and service given is awesome! As they go into their tenth year they look forward to many new friendships, togetherness, much laughter, meeting and greeting many, more women of interest ………….” we have much to be thankful for!”

These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends, has grown into a calling list of over three hundred women, and an attendance of over one hundred women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another!

The energy that they all have is wonderful! The friendship and service given is awesome! As they go into their tenth year they look forward to many new friendships, togetherness, much laughter, meeting and greeting many, more women of interest ………….” we have much to be thankful for!”

Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House
Hosts May “Women’s Power Lunch”

Out2News.com

Jensen Beach -– The Women’s Power Lunch, started by Anne Thompson Schafer, celebrating their 15th year of connecting powerful women in business at Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House.

The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House location is intrinsically unique, as it sits over-hanging the river’s edge. This special touch came when it was built by the famous historic movie star, Frances Langford. With such an appropriate placement, it gives it’s customers the most spectacular panoramic views. These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

Is It Wise to Trade Your Pension for a Lump Sum?

Out2News.com

Out2News.comMost private employers have already replaced traditional pensions, which promise lifetime income payments in retirement, with defined contribution plans such as 401(k)s. But 15% of private-sector workers and 75% of state and local government workers still participate in traditional pensions.1 Altogether, 35% of workers say they (and/or their spouse) have pension benefits with a current or former employer.2

Many pension plan participants have the option to take their money in a lump sum when they retire. And since 2012, an increasing number of large corporate pensions have been implementing “lump-sum windows” during which vested former employees have a limited amount of time (typically 30 to 90 days) to accept or decline buyout offers.3 (Lump-sum offers to retirees already receiving pension benefits are no longer allowed.)

By shrinking the size of a pension plan, the company can reduce the associated risks and costs, and limit the impact of future retirement obligations on current financial performance. However, what’s good for a corporation’s bottom line may or may not be in the best interests of plan participants and their families.

For many workers, there may be mathematical and psychological advantages to keeping the pension. On the other hand, a lump sum could provide financial flexibility that may benefit some families.
Weigh risks before letting go

A lump-sum payout transfers the risks associated with investment performance and longevity from the pension plan sponsor to the participant. The lump-sum amount is the discounted present value of an employee’s future pension, set by an IRS formula based on current bond interest rates and average life expectancies.

Individuals who opt for a lump-sum payout must then make critical investment and withdrawal decisions, and determine for themselves how much risk to take in the financial markets. The resulting income is often not enough to replace the pension income given up, unless the investor can tolerate exposure to stock market risk and is able to achieve solid returns over time.

Gender is not considered when calculating lump sums, so a pension’s lifetime income may be even more valuable for women, who tend to live longer than men and would have a greater chance of outliving their savings.

In addition, companies might not include the value of subsidies for early retirement or spousal benefits in lump-sum calculations.4 The latter could be a major disadvantage for married participants, because a healthy 65-year-old couple has about a 73% chance that one spouse will live until at least 90.5
When a lump sum might make sense

A lump-sum payment could benefit a person in poor health or provide financial relief for a household with little cash in the bank for emergencies. But keep in mind that pension payments (monthly or lump sum) are taxed in the year they are received, and cashing out a pension before age 59½ may trigger a 10% federal tax penalty.6 Rolling the lump sum into a traditional IRA postpones taxes until withdrawals are taken later in retirement.

Someone who expects to live comfortably on other sources of retirement income might also welcome a buyout offer. Pension payments end when the plan participant (or a surviving spouse) dies, but funds preserved in an IRA could be passed down to heirs.

IRA distributions are also taxed as ordinary income, and withdrawals taken prior to age 59½ may be subject to the 10% federal tax penalty, with certain exceptions. Annual minimum distributions are required starting in the year the account owner reaches age 70½.

It may also be important to consider the health of the company’s pension plan, especially for plans that don’t purchase annuity contracts. The “funded status” is a measure of plan assets and liabilities that must be reported annually; a plan funded at 80% or less may be struggling. Most corporate pensions are backstopped by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), but retirees could lose a portion of the “promised” benefits if their plan fails.

The prospect of a large check might be tempting, but cashing in a pension could have costly repercussions for your retirement. It’s important to have a long-term perspective and an understanding of the tradeoffs when a lump-sum option is on the table.

QUIZ: HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT
SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT BENEFITS?

Out2News.comSocial Security is an important source of retirement income for millions of Americans, but how much do you know about this program? Test your knowledge, and learn more about your retirement benefits, by answering the following questions.
Questions
1. Do you have to be retired to collect Social Security retirement benefits?
a. Yes
b. No
2. How much is the average monthly Social Security benefit for a retired worker?
a. $1,360
b. $1,493
c. $1,585
d. $1,723
3. For each year you wait past your full retirement age to collect Social Security, how much will your retirement benefit increase?
a. 5%
b. 6%
c. 7%
d. 8%
4. How far in advance should you apply for Social Security retirement benefits?
a. One month before you want your benefits to start.
b. Two months before you want your benefits to start.
c. Three months before you want your benefits to start.
5. Is it possible for your retirement benefit to increase once you start receiving Social Security?
a. Yes
b. No
Answers
1. b. You don’t need to stop working in order to claim Social Security retirement benefits. However, if you plan to continue working and you have not yet reached full retirement age (66 to 67, depending on your year of birth), your Social Security retirement benefit may be reduced if you earn more than a certain annual amount. In 2017, $1 in benefits will be deducted for every $2 you earn above $16,920. In the calendar year in which you reach your full retirement age, a higher limit applies. In 2017, $1 in benefits will be deducted for every $3 you earn above $44,880. Once you reach full retirement age, your earnings will not affect your Social Security benefit.
2. a. Your benefit will depend on your earnings history and other factors, but according to the Social Security Administration, the average estimated monthly Social Security benefit for a retired worker (as of January 2017) is $1,360.1
3. d. Starting at full retirement age, you will earn delayed retirement credits that will increase your benefit by 8% per year up to age 70. For example, if your full retirement age is 66, you can earn credits for a maximum of four years. At age 70, your benefit will then be 32% higher than it would have been at full retirement age.
4. c. According to the Social Security Administration, you should ideally apply three months before you want your benefits to start. You can generally apply online.
5. a. There are several reasons why your benefit might increase after you begin receiving it. First, you’ll generally receive annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs). Second, your benefit is recalculated every year to account for new earnings, so it might increase if you continue working. Your benefit might also be adjusted if you qualify for a higher spousal benefit once your spouse files for Social Security.

***Book Review***

Don’t Be That KID!

Out2News.com

“Lois McGuire has created an engaging way through rhymes for elementary-age children to talk about and then address positive character behaviors. I purchased a Don’t Be That KID! At School book for each of my grandchildren and a resource guide for their parents.” Bill P., Grandfather of 5

“The Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide provides my teachers with a year-long plan that supports their students in engaging in positive behaviors and social interactions. Both the book and the resource guide are invaluable tools to help our students feel confident and our classrooms feel secure.” Lauren B., Principal.

These are just two testimonials concerning Lois McGuire’s new character education books: Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide. Dr. McGuire feels that building positive character values is as important as teaching core subject areas. She says, “What good is being an ‘A’ student if you aren’t an ‘A’ person? Parents and teachers need to work together to infuse the key character education principles into their children’s daily lives. Make no mistake about it, character in not just innate – it can be taught and learned which is why I wrote Don’t Be That KID! At School.”

Don’t Be That KID! At School is about a little goat who misbehaves at school but ultimately learns his lesson. Each scene provides an opportunity to discuss character building values, such as honesty, consideration, responsibility and respect. The “Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide accompanies the book but can be used independently by teachers and parents to help reinforce desired behaviors and character education principles. Although separated into appropriate activities for grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-5, the Guide can easily be adapted for all ages and abilities.

Learn more about Don’t Be That KID! At School and the Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide by going to the website: dontbethatkid.net Both books can be purchased through the website or through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble .com.

INVESTING THAT MAKES AN IMPACT

Out2News.comSocially responsible investing (SRI) has come to represent various investment strategies that favor companies with business practices generally viewed as socially responsible, ethical, and/or sustainable.

Overall, investor interest in SRI has been gaining momentum. In fact, the number of investment funds incorporating ESG (environmental, social, and governance) factors has increased 12% in the last two years alone, from 894 in 2014 to 1,002 in 2016. These 1,002 funds represent $2.6 trillion in net assets.1

What is SRI?

Fundamentally, SRI is an investment strategy in which companies’ social and environmental records and objectives are factored in when building a portfolio.

Money managers who use SRI strategies often integrate ESG factors with traditional financial analysis to choose securities for their funds. The heightened focus on corporate sustainability issues allows investors to compare how businesses in the same industry have adapted to meet social and environmental challenges, and provides some insight into which companies may be exposed to risks or have a competitive advantage. For example, in some instances, poor decisions and lack of planning could cause negative financial results for a company, whereas good corporate citizenship may boost a company’s public image and help create value.

Why is SRI attractive to investors?

Individual investors may have different opinions about which policies and practices have a positive or negative impact on society. Fortunately, there are a number of SRI options to choose from. This gives investors the ability to build a portfolio that aligns with their personal values and offers the potential for earning positive returns.

In addition, investors may have difficulty measuring the intangible value associated with socially responsible companies, which means these companies may be undervalued and represent a potential buying opportunity.

What might investors find unappealing?

SRI opponents claim that investing should be about making money first; therefore, social and environmental issues are viewed as noble impediments to that goal. Focusing on SRI strategies limits the total universe of available investments and could make it more challenging to diversify and maintain your desired asset allocation. Diversification and asset allocation are methods used to help manage investment risk; they do not guarantee a profit or protect against investment loss.

Moreover, although data is available, it can be difficult to thoroughly assess the ethics of a given company. For example, beyond the value chains of a company itself, investors might also need to look at the different social standards among the contractors and subcontractors associated with the company.

Remember that different SRI funds may focus on very different ESG criteria, and there is no guarantee that an SRI fund will achieve its objectives.

All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal, and there can be no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. The return and principal value of SRI stocks and mutual funds fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Mutual funds are sold by prospectus. Please consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus, which contains this and other information about the investment company, can be obtained from your financial professional. Be sure to read the prospectus carefully before deciding whether to invest.

Keep in mind that the penalty tax applies only to taxable distributions, so tax-free rollovers of retirement assets are not subject to the penalty. Also note that the exceptions applicable to IRAs are similar to, but not identical to, the rules that apply to employer plans.

Organic Solutions Hosts Three Chamber Celebration
And Three Chamber Business After Hours

Out2News.com

Stuart — Sustainability is a word that is often used but largely misunderstood. To Organic Solutions “sustainability” comes down to one very basic principle… It means creating healthy landscapes that improve the quality of the environment, make economic sense, and result in beautiful places for people to gather and enjoy their families, friends and neighbors.

Sustainability in landscaping is based upon three key considerations: social, environmental, and economic impacts. The goal is to create healthy, regenerative landscapes that are economically viable. The result is reduced labor and materials and lower long-term maintenance costs. Sustainable landscaping saves money while also preserving, and in some cases, saving the environment.

Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House
Hosts March “Women’s Power Lunch”

Out2News.com

In photo: Author Lois McGuire tells her story and sells her book

Jensen Beach -– The Women’s Power Lunch, started by Anne Thompson Schafer, celebrating their 15th year of connecting powerful women in business at Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House.

The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House location is intrinsically unique, as it sits over-hanging the river’s edge. This special touch came when it was built by the famous historic movie star, Frances Langford. With such an appropriate placement, it gives it’s customers the most spectacular panoramic views. These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends, has grown into a calling list of over three hundred women, and an attendance of over one hundred women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another!

The energy that they all have is wonderful! The friendship and service given is awesome! As they go into their tenth year they look forward to many new friendships, togetherness, much laughter, meeting and greeting many, more women of interest ………….” we have much to be thankful for!”

401(K) WITHDRAWALS: BEWARE THE PENALTY TAX

Out2News.comYou’ve probably heard that if you withdraw taxable amounts from your 401(k) or 403(b) plan before age 59½, you may be socked with a 10% early distribution penalty tax on top of the federal income taxes you’ll be required to pay. But did you know that the Internal Revenue Code contains quite a few exceptions that allow you to take penalty-free withdrawals before age 59½?

Sometimes age 59½ is really age 55…or age 50

If you’ve reached age 55, you can take penalty-free withdrawals from your 401(k) plan after leaving your job if your employment ends during or after the year you reach age 55. This is one of the most important exceptions to the penalty tax.

And if you’re a qualified public safety employee, this exception applies after you’ve reached age 50. You’re a qualified public safety employee if you provided police protection, firefighting services, or emergency medical services for a state or municipality, and you separated from service in or after the year you attained age 50.

Be careful though. This exception applies only after you leave employment with the employer that sponsored the plan making the distribution. For example, if you worked for Employer A and quit at age 45, then took a job with Employer B and quit at age 55, only distributions from Employer B’s plan would be eligible for this exception. You’ll have to wait until age 59½ to take penalty-free withdrawals from Employer A’s plan, unless another exception applies.

Think periodic, not lump sums

Another important exception to the penalty tax applies to “substantially equal periodic payments,” or SEPPs. This exception also applies only after you’ve stopped working for the employer that sponsored the plan. To take advantage of this exception, you must withdraw funds from your plan at least annually based on one of three rather complicated IRS-approved distribution methods.

Regardless of which method you choose, you generally can’t change or alter the payments for five years or until you reach age 59½, whichever occurs later. If you do modify the payments (for example, by taking amounts smaller or larger than required distributions or none at all), you’ll again wind up having to pay the 10% penalty tax on the taxable portion of all your pre-age 59½ SEPP distributions (unless another exception applies).

And more exceptions…

Distributions described below generally won’t be subject to the penalty tax even if you’re under age 59½ at the time of the payment.

• Distributions from your plan up to the amount of your unreimbursed medical expenses for the year that exceed 10% of your adjusted gross income for that year (You don’t have to itemize deductions to use this exception, and the distributions don’t have to actually be used to pay those medical expenses.)

• Distributions made as a result of your qualifying disability (This means you must be unable to engage in any “substantial gainful activity” by reason of a “medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or to be of long-continued and indefinite duration.”)

• Certain distributions to qualified military reservists called to active duty

• Distributions made pursuant to a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO)

• Distributions made to your beneficiary after your death, regardless of your beneficiary’s age

Keep in mind that the penalty tax applies only to taxable distributions, so tax-free rollovers of retirement assets are not subject to the penalty. Also note that the exceptions applicable to IRAs are similar to, but not identical to, the rules that apply to employer plans.

Trouble Selling? Try These Fixes

Out2News.comBy: Todd Doss

If you have had your home on the market for several months in Jensen Beach and haven’t seen much activity or any offers, chances are that one or more of the reasons below are to blame.

Problem: Your price is too high
Solution: Regardless of the reason, if you’ve priced your home too high, you’ve set yourself up for a number of obstacles to selling your home. The fact is this: your home is competing against those other homes, and what buyers are willing to pay is what will determine final sale price. Competitive pricing attracts more buyers and more offers.

Problem: The look of your home
Solution: The more you can do to make your home appeal to buyers, the better your chances for a quick sale. Your best “bang for the buck” is in paint and flooring. Repainting doesn’t cost much, and will usually make the biggest impact on buyers. And, you should consider putting in new carpet. Again, it’s not that expensive but it sure does make an impact on buyers coming to look at your home.

Problem: Your home’s location
Solution: The only really reliable way to overcome a bad location is with a lower price. It’s the oldest real estate cliché, but it’s true. Things like schools, crime rates, visual appeal of the neighborhood, noise and the smell of pollution affect how the desirability of the location.

Problem: Your home isn’t easily accessible
Solution: When an agent is compiling a list of homes to show a buyer, they’ll show houses that are easiest to gain access to first. You should let your agent put a lock box on your home for easier showing. If not, do anything you can to make it convenient for agents to show your home.

What this all comes down to is having a real estate agent who is on your side and helps you make good choices about selling your home. Pick someone with great industry relationships that makes you feel confident and comfortable with selling your home.

If you or someone you know needs a real estate agent, just give me a call or shoot me an e-mail.

Florida Businesses Prepare for New Overtime Rules

Out2News.com

By: Brandon Woodward

Effective December 1, 2016, salaried employees in Florida may become eligible for overtime pay. The Department of Labor has enacted a new overtime rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The new regulation will extend overtime pay protections to over 4 million workers. Read on to learn more about the new overtime rule and how to prepare for the upcoming requirements.

New Overtime Rule Overview

Currently, employees who make less than $23,660 per year ($455 per week) are eligible for overtime payment. An employee earns time-and-a-half for all the work he/she performs in excess of 40 hours per week. Under the new overtime rule, all employees covered under the FLSA who make less than $47,476 per year ($913 per week) is entitled to overtime payment. Employers can use non-discretionary bonuses and incentive payments (this includes commissions) to satisfy up to 10% of the new standard salary level.

Some executive, administrative, or professional employees (often called “EAP occupations”) are not subject to the mandatory salary level requirement (example – doctors, lawyers, teachers, outside sales). For example, so long as the employee passes the a specific duties test, and is paid more than the mandatory weekly minimum, the employee will qualify for an exemption to the overtime rule regardless of how much they earn.

Certain industries throughout Florida will be certainly impacted by the new rule. In particular, colleges, non-profits, and retail businesses will have to implement new procedures to ensure personnel receive the correct pay. Former salaried employees who now earn less than $47,476 per year must now be classified as hourly employees. Business owners will have to inform new hourly workers of the overtime requirements.

To maintain normal operations, employers could raise exempt employees salaries at or above the new mandatory salary level. This scenario works best for exempt employees who have income close to the mandatory salary level. Employers could also choose to pay reclassified hourly employees overtime. This scenario works best for businesses that require employees to work overtime on a seasonal basis. Lastly, employers can limit employee hours to 40 hours per week. This will ensure no overtime expenses are incurred.

The new salary threshold for overtime pay will be reviewed every three years. I invite you to contact my law office for more information about the new overtime pay requirement. I can help you draft new policies and procedures to implement the new rule. Not following the new overtime requirements could potentially result in employees taking legal action against your business.

Intelligence Report

Out2news.comBuild trust in your marketing messages through the use of repetition. Researchers conducted a survey that asked participants to rate how much they trusted a statement. Some statements were repeated multiple times, while others were stated only once. The study found that people consistently rated the repeated statements as more trustworthy. Previous studies have found similar results. How can you use this knowledge in copywriting? Try the classic Dale Carnegie technique: Tell the audience what you’re going to say, say it; then tell them what you’ve said. Within your copy, repeat the statements you most want your audience to believe and remember. Source: blog.kissmetrics.com

If you’re ever put on the spot to give an impromptu speech, use this simple format that will fit just about any business situation. Just remember these two words: Problem/Solution. Here’s how to go about it: 1) Problem: “We’re falling behind our major competitor. Here’s the situation.” Then give one or two examples. 2) Solution: “Here’s how we can regain our leadership position.” Then give an example. This format will give you instant focus for organizing your remarks into a commendable 3-minute speech that can be prepared in moments. Source: www.gramcomm.com

When negotiating a contract, ask for every no-cost or inexpensive option you can get. For example, when leasing a property, ask for an option to sublease even if you have no plans to do that. When committing to a longterm purchase contract, get an option to resell the goods you buy even if you intend to use them yourself. The other party usually is willing to give them away because they appear to be irrelevant to the deal — but sometimes they become very valuable later on. Source: www.journalofaccountancy.com

What is a Public Insurance Adjuster?

Out2News.com
 A Public Insurance Adjuster is the only adjuster licensed by a state to represent you, the public and handle every detail of the claim, working closely with the insured to provide the most equitable settlement. A Public Adjuster inspects the loss site immediately, analyzes the damages, assembles claim support data, reviews the insured’s coverage, determines current replacement costs and exclusively serves the client, not the insurance company.

Mr. Connelly has assisted property owners in assessing, documenting, presenting and negotiating settlements for losses suffered through fire, hurricane, water damage, broken pipes, sinkhole, tornado and other perils commonly covered in new or reopened property insurance claims.

Joseph “Joe” Connelly began his career at a young age within his own family’s business in New England. Mr. Connelly graduated from Suffolk University with a BS, BA in Business Management. He has been an integral member of management of ‘Class A’ office buildings, Harvard University healthcare facilities, higher education campuses and residential communities. He has completed programs at Boston University and George Washington University to learn new technology in software, hardware, building codes and life safety requirements. His role to assess, document and present physical plant analysis to Administration Boards has lent itself seamlessly to property insurance adjusting as a public insurance adjuster.

Mr. Connelly has achieved the recovery of millions of dollars on behalf of businesses, homeowner’s associations, homeowners, and other property owners with his “NO RECOVERY, NO FEE” policy.

Palm City — As a chiropractor, Dr Lisa Grassam/Smith gets to help people who suffer from a variety of health issues. Naturally, chiropractic helps traditional neck and back problems, but chiropractic has also produced wonderful results with a variety of organic and systemic problems. Chiropractic is safe. Chiropractic is natural. And Chiropractic works!

“My practice philosophy is to treat people as I would want to be treated. A good doctor should have a great ear. My objective is to restore each patient’s health to the best of my ability and teach people how to optimize their health using exercise, nutrition, and chiropractic.”

In August 2013, SFWMD approved the Water Farming Pilot Project known as “Caulkins”, located in Indiantown, Florida, a public/private partnership with Caulkins Citrus Company. The Caulkins property is uniquely located adjacent to C-44, below the Okeechobee locks, but above the S-80 discharge facility.

Since becoming operational in February 2014, this project has stored 20,000 acre-feet (and acre foot is 327,000 gallons), or 6.5 billion gallons, of water taken from the C-44 canal across its 413 acre footprint, removing this water and its pollutants, Nitrogen and Phosphorus, from the basin and reducing discharges to the St. Lucie Estuary and Indian River Lagoon.

Water Farming is an alternative water storage method. The “Caulkins” pilot program has proven to be a highly efficient, cost effective method of collecting, storing and “farming” water through transvaporation, percolation and evaporation. It is an alternative water storage facility that adds to, and supplements, other existing and proposed water retention, storage and diversion projects designed to reduce destructive discharges from Lake Okeechobee and local drainage.

The Caulkins Water Farm proposes to expand its existing 413 acre “pilot project”, already operating successfully on a portion of the fallow citrus groves that comprised Caulkins Citrus Company, to its entire 3300 acres. This expansion will create a large, shallow water storage facility, capable of receiving water diverted from the C-44 reducing the need to discharge, or waste the water to tide. Based on scientific monitoring, it can be estimated that approximately 70-80,000 ac-ft of water could be “harvested” from the C-44 and treated and captured within the 3000 acres available for expansion of the pilot.

The St. Lucie River Watershed Protection Plan estimated that 200,000 ac-ft of storage are needed within the basin to reduce discharge events by 90% annually. An expanded “Caulkins” satisfies almost 50% of that need.

Our Mission at the Palm City Chamber is “To serve as the principle advocate of the community and its businesses, acting as the catalyst in promoting the economic development of the Palm City area, stimulating jobs and improving the quality of life.”

The Palm City Chamber is the only Chamber on the Treasure Coast that offers private tours of member businesses exclusively to their members

Customers You Don’t Want

Out2News.comEven in a slowdown, there are certain customers that you don’t want to do business with. If you’re a service-business owner, a customer you should try to avoid is the one who takes your professional services for granted. For example, I’m often cold-called by prospective clients to answer their “quick question” about business law, corporate matters or their real estate transaction. However, providing quality legal advice that a (paying) client can rely on could take me a few hours to research, or is the product of having 20 years of legal experience behind me. Your business, large or small is no different. You’ve worked very hard to get where you are now, and so the clients you want should appreciate the time and effort you put into the products you sell, or the service you provide. So how can you identify customers you don’t want? Review my following tips on the customers you should avoid.

 

Customers Looking for a Handout

Some new customers often want a freebie, also known as a handout. They want you to provide them with a product or service at a steep discounted rate or for free. If you accept this rate, they will insist you keep it for future service. This is the type of customer you should definitely stay away from. As a business professional, you must know the value of the service you provide. Whatever your hourly rate is, don’t drop below that amount. Any customer asking you to do most likely doesn’t value your time, and is one that you should firmly and politely decline.

Customers Focused on Price Instead of Results

Price is a major factor when a customer considers acquiring a new product or service. Unfortunately, some customers get hung up on the price versus of the results your product or service will provide. Always focus on the results your customers can achieve if they use your products. If your customer becomes fixated on the price, you should reconsider the business relationship. Again, never undervalue your product or service. Doing so will result in you making less money when you really could be making more.
Customers that have Unrealistic Expectations or Promise Bigger Things (Later)

Some customers have expectations that far exceed what your product or service can do for them. Over time, this customer will become more and more demanding, and consume more of your time just to keep them happy. They are setting you up to fail. Because, eventually, you will run out of time, resources, or patience, and you can’t satisfy their needs. You should nip this kind of business relationship in the bud. These kinds of customers can become disgruntled and possibly post negative reviews about your company online. It’s just not worth it.

The other kind of customer in this category comes to you with a small project, or seeking a freebie, but drops promises of bigger, grander, projects in the future. Don’t be deceived; these customers are often just storytellers who just want your attention. If they truly have connections, or secret investor, or a valuable introduction to share with you, that’s awesome. Impress them with your product and your professionalism, not by getting starry-eyed over their promises.

You will be doing yourself and everyone else in your company a favor if you end business relationships with customers you don’t want. Do not let customers you don’t want turn into a costly customer. This will lower your profits over time. You’ll see your staff putting out the fires of cranky customers, rather than working on the profitable (appreciative) ones. Keep customers that value your business. These type of customers will stick with you through the ups and downs of your business.

Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House

Hosts “Women’s Power Lunch”

 

In photo: June Hostess for the month Anne Warner

Jensen Beach -– The Women’s Power Lunch, started by Anne Thompson Schafer, celebrating their 15th year of connecting powerful women in business at Dolphin Bar and Shrimp House.

The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House location is intrinsically unique, as it sits over-hanging the river’s edge. This special touch came when it was built by the famous historic movie star, Frances Langford. With such an appropriate placement, it gives it’s customers the most spectacular panoramic views. These exceptional views span from the Stuart Causeway all the way up the river to the Jensen Beach Causeway Bridge. Incorporate the restaurant’s superb location with The Dolphin’s signature dish, The Dolphin a la Dolphin, and it is easy to feel the impact of these surroundings.

Schafer says of the groups’ members; “You have made the Power Lunch what it has become, and what it will grow to be! Be who you are, present a message, and join in! This is a ladies’ group that provides networking and support, the two basic elements that make it the huge success it is today!”

What began as an afternoon luncheon for ten friends, has grown into a calling list of over three hundred women, and an attendance of over one hundred women at the monthly luncheons. Anne Schafer, the founder of the Ladies Power Lunch, attributes the success of the group to great networking and support for one another!

The energy that they all have is wonderful! The friendship and service given is awesome! As they go into their tenth year they look forward to many new friendships, togetherness, much laughter, meeting and greeting many, more women of interest ………….” we have much to be thankful for!”

How A Contracts Lawyer Can Save Your Company

Out2News.comWhen a business contract involves a large sum of money, or presents a significant risk to your company’s bottom line, it is imperative that you get a skilled contracts attorney to draft, review, and negotiate your business agreement.

At our firm, we will review your agreement to ensure it is valid, enforceable, and specifically tailored to suit your business needs. We will show you the legal risks your business may be exposed to if the contract is broken, and how you can lessen or avoid them. If you want, we can even “be your voice” to aggressively negotiate the terms of your business agreement to ensure you are protected in the event of a breach.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of using our contract attorneys to draft and negotiate your business agreements.

Negotiating Legal Terms
Always remember, there is no such thing as a “standard contract.” You often have more leverage than you think, so your contracts should be drafted accordingly. Your contract’s terms should meet YOUR business needs, not the other sides. Our contract attorneys can carefully review and negotiate your business contracts to identify potential issues related to risks regarding contract performance, breach of contract, and the available remedies in the event of a breach.

Specifics, specifics, specifics
At our firm, we’ve handled thousands of transactions, and so we can help you spot problems (beyond “price” and “quantity”) that you may have overlooked. For instance, terms can be written into your agreement that specifically address WHEN the contract will be completed, HOW the work is to be performed, or WHAT materials will be used. Our contract attorneys can draft and negotiate other legal clauses into your contract to compel performance such as “time is of the essence” to make sure performance is rendered in a timely manner.

Breach of Contract
Our attorneys can also draft and negotiate specific terms into your contract to protect you and your business in the event of a breach, i.e., what happens if one side doesn’t keep up their end of the bargain. You and your counterparty should both be clear about what happens to a non-performing party if they fail to honor your contract. Incorporating legal, enforceable terms within your contract that encourage performance are critically important to the success of your transaction.

Remedies
As experienced contract lawyers, we are trained to anticipate the “what-could-go-wrong” with your transaction, and incorporate reasonable, practical, and enforceable remedies into your business agreement in case of a breach. For instance, a well-written liquidated damages clause may be appropriate to compensate your business for damages likely to stem from a breach of your contract by the other side.

No tipping at NY Restaurants?

Is this a trend coming soon to a town near you?

When you head on up to New York for that new Broadway show or the Macy’s Christmas Parade you need to be aware that in some trendy restaurants there will be no need to tip. It is being reported that Union Square Hospitality Group will be eliminating tipping, starting next month.

“Starting at The Modern in late November, you will no longer find a tip line on your check, and there will be no need to leave additional cash at the table, the coat check, or the bar,” said Danny Meyer owner of the USHG. “Once these changes are implemented, the total cost you pay to dine with us won’t differ much from what you pay now. But for our teams, the change will be significant. We will now have the ability to compensate all of our employees equitably, competitively and professionally. And by eliminating tipping, our employees who want to grow financially and professionally will be able to earn those opportunities based on the merit of their work.”

Take a look at this from New York Times just a few years ago.

This is really nothing new. There are restaurants in California that have been doing this for over thirty years.

Thinking of Buying a Fixer-Upper?

Out2News.comWith all the popular TV shows centering on home renovation these days, it’s no surprise that many more people are interested in buying a house with some cosmetic issues, with plans to renovate it to their liking. If you do it right, it can be a great way to save money and get just what you want. But you need to be able to tell the difference between a place with potential and a possible money pit. Here are a few things to consider when looking into purchasing a fixer-upper.

Location — As with all real estate, so much depends on the location. You don’t want to spend your time and money fixing up a house in an unsafe neighborhood or one where no other properties have been renovated and homes aren’t selling. In the end, it’s a much safer bet to buy a lower-end property in a nicer neighborhood than the best house in a mediocre neighborhood.

Age — There are usually some inherent issues with homes that are 50 years old or more. There’s just a greater chance to come across more expensive fixes. And if a home that old has never been updated, there are many more things to consider than a house that has at least had a few upgrades along the way.

Cosmetics — The best bet is to find a home that you can get for a discount because of its shabby appearance, but one that also has good “bones”. Replacing things like carpet, paint, wallpaper, and light fixtures is usually relatively cheap and easy. If possible, you want to avoid large renovations such as dealing with water damage, foundation issues, roof replacement, and so on. These larger problems add up quick, and before you know it, you can go from saving money to actually spending more than you would have on a new home.

Floor plan — Another important thing to think about is finding a home with a floor plan that makes sense. You don’t want to tackle the task of moving walls or changing anything structurally, as that gets into the “big expensive renovations you want to avoid” category.

Inspection — The most important thing you can do is to get a professional inspection. You should make sure a completed inspection is a condition of purchase in any contract you sign. It’s highly likely that a professional home inspector will find things you didn’t even know you should check.

Apple Buys VocalIQ To Supercharge Siri

Out2News.com

The purchase could give Apple the software it needs to take Siri, and potentially its automotive project, to the next level.
Apple has reportedly bought UK startup VocalIQ, according to a new report from the Financial Times.

VocalIQ builds speech-processing technology. Its software is designed to facilitate more natural communication between humans and computers, as explained by sources close to the deal.

In a blog post from the company, VocalIQ explains how the challenge of the Internet of Things is in combining human and artificial intelligence to create a continuous stream of new knowledge. It believes we need more than automated speech recognition (ASR) to improve the conversation between people and machines.

“What we need is framework for a real dialog, a conversation,” wrote officials, “where it’s not just us humans doing the talking, but the machines [things] talk to us if and when they have something important to say. And they will. Lots. What we need is Machine Initiated Dialog.”

With the power of machine learning, VocalIQ is attempting to create the type of virtual assistant we have only seen in movies like Her. Such a tool could enhance Apple’s Siri or become part of Apple’s automobile project.

Modern navigation systems have the ability to display real-time traffic data inside the vehicle, VocalIQ explains, but drivers are restricted in navigating them. A vocal dialog system could help by enabling the driver to chat with a machine and receive directions while paying attention to the road.

VocalIQ recognizes the growing competition for the voice user experience (UX) among today’s tech giants. Siri is already in direct competition with Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Now for the top virtual assistant.

Despite the billions of dollars being invested in these services, the startup claims all of them “fell well short of consumer expectations” and dismisses Siri as a “toy.”

Most modern digital assistants can better understand human vocabulary, the blog post continues, but have little understanding of the context of those words. Companies such as Apple and Google are stuck in a “medieval” approach to conversation because they continue to use “pre-programmed, flow-chart based response that don’t learn.”

VocalIQ claims the most successful assistant will be a self-learning multi-domain system that can hold a conversation with people about hotel bookings, movies, restaurants, and music. Perhaps it will help Apple create such an assistant in Siri.

In a statement confirming the deal to the Financial Times, Apple officials gave their usual response: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

Stuart — New owners Dennis and Karen O’Donovan (center in photo) celebrated the grand opening of their newly acquired A.C.T. Studio Theatre in the Cedar Pointe Plaza at 2399 SE Ocean Blvd. After enjoying a delicious champagne and hors douvres repast, visitors were treated to vignettes from upcoming shows and had a chance to mingle with the acting company. Chamber Special Events and Membership Director Lisa Teetor said the theater is a wonderful addition to the city.

Left to Right in photo: Chamber Ambassador Paula Hosein, owners Dennis and Karen O’Donovan and Chamber Ambassador Steven Shultz took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

A.C.T. plans to expand their schedule to a full-year calendar, in recognition of the number of year-round residents who have expressed an interest in quality theatre productions. In addition A.C.T. has already expanded its offerings by introducing “radio” theatre, with plans to add short story readings, improv, poetry, stand-up comedy, cabaret and musicals, and a suite of theatre classes ranging from acting and Shakespeare to theater technology and playwriting.

Running the A.C.T. Studio Theatre represents the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for the O’Donovans, who have been working together behind the scenes in local theatre since before they were married 27 years ago.

Tax Return Filing Due Dates Changes

Out2News.com

On July 31, 2015, President Obama signed into law P.L. 114-41, the “Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015″. Although this new law was primarily designed as a 3-month stopgap extension of the Highway Trust Fund and related measures, it includes a number of important tax provisions, including revised due dates for partnership and C corporation returns and revised extended due dates for some returns. This notice provides an overview of these provisions, which may have an impact on you, your family, or your business.
Revised Due Dates for Partnership and C-Corporation Returns

Domestic corporations (including S corporations) currently must file their returns by the 15th day of the third month after the end of their tax year. Thus, corporations using the calendar year must file their returns by March 15 of the following year.

The partnership return is due on the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of the partnership’s tax year. Thus, partnerships using a calendar year must file their returns by April 15 of the following year. Since the due date of the partnership return is the same date as the due date for an individual tax return, individuals holding partnership interests often must file for an extension to file their returns because their Schedule K-1s may not arrive until the last minute.

Under the new law, in a major restructuring of entity return due dates, effective generally for returns for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015:

  • Partnerships and S corporations will have to file their returns by the 15th day of the third month after the end of the tax year. Thus, entities using a calendar year will have to file by March 15 of the following year. In other words, the filing deadline for partnerships will be accelerated by one month; the filing deadline for S corporations stays the same. By having most partnership returns due one month before individual returns are due, taxpayers and practitioners will generally not have to extend, or scurry around at the last minute to file, the returns of individuals who are partners in partnerships.
  • C corporations will have to file by the 15th day of the fourth month after the end of the tax year. Thus, C corporations using a calendar year will have to file by April 15 of the following year. In other words, the filing deadline for C corporations will be deferred for one month.

Keep in mind that these important changes to the filing deadlines generally won’t go into effect until the 2016 returns have to be filed. Under a special rule for C corporations with fiscal years ending on June 30, the change is deferred for ten years – it won’t apply until tax years beginning after December 31, 2025.
Revised Extended Due Dates for Various Returns

Taxpayers who can’t file a tax form on time can ask the IRS for an extension to file the form. Effective for tax returns for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015, the new law directs the IRS to modify its regulations to provide for a longer extension to file a number of forms, including the following:

  • Form 1065 (U.S. Return of Partnership Income) will have a maximum extension of six-months (currently, a 5-month extension applies). The extension will end on September 15 for calendar year taxpayers.
  • Form 1041 (U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts) will have a maximum extension of five and a half months (currently, a 5-month extension applies). The extension will end on September 30 for calendar year taxpayers.
  • The Form 5500 series (Annual Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan) will have a maximum automatic extension of three and a half months (under currently law, a 2½ month period applies). The extension will end on November 15 for calendar year filers.

FinCEN Report Due Date Revised

Taxpayers with a financial interest in or signature authority over certain foreign financial accounts must file FinCEN Form 114, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR). Currently, this form must be filed by June 30 of the year immediately following the calendar year being reported, and no extensions are allowed.

Under the new law, for returns for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015, the due date of FinCEN Report 114 will be April 15 with a maximum extension for a 6-month period ending on October 15. The IRS may also waive the penalty for failure to timely request an extension for filing the Report, for any taxpayer required to file FinCEN Form 114 for the first time.

We hope this information is helpful. If you would like more details about these changes or any other aspect of the new law, please do not hesitate to call.

The Debate Over Watermarks in Photography

Out2News.com

Controlling your image is a valid quest for any photographer, as we all want to protect our brand. Seeing one’s work altered without permission can be frustrating, as can discovering your work on blogs that are void of any credit. The first response for most photographers is to watermark their images, ensuring that their logo or website graces every image that hits the internet. In today’s landscape, is watermarking your photographs the best way to protect them? Let’s review both sides of this debate, and explore the current state of the watermark in photography.

Watermarks Impact the Viewing Experience

Out2News.com

With the bombardment of media that we find ourselves in on any social media network, presentation is more important than ever. As photographers, we have to contend with our images being compressed, as well as deal with the poor quality of the displays that our audience may be experiencing our photos on. For the most part, these are aspects that are beyond our control.

However, a watermark is something that is entirely in our hands. From large vectorized logos to website URLs, a distracting watermark can cause an adverse reaction to our work in front of viewers. Scrolling past an image without any engagement is the worst reaction a viewer can have. Disrupting their viewing experience in any way can contribute to that.

There are many artists who will watermark every image that is delivered to their clients, not pertaining to low-resolution proofs. Whether this is to a blog, or for an event, there are many who charge a fee if their client wishes to have their images watermark-free. Why would someone pay for this? The logical conclusion to draw is that there are enough clients who feel the images are worsened by the presence of said logos and watermarks. I personally find this business practice to be one that can quickly alienate a client, so tread carefully.

Watermarks Are Free Advertising

Out2News.com

Most watermarks are designed with promotion in mind, consisting of the photographer’s website, or the brand name. This means that when your images are seen, that you are guaranteed credit, as your name is right on the picture. This is true, and it can definitely help potential clients find you. However, as mentioned above, the reach of your images can be limited by

The Natives Respond To Native: What Consumers Expect From In-Feed Ads

Out2News.com

To rationalize in-feed and native advertising, publishers and advertisers insist that readers just want good content and don’t care much about the source. Until now, consumers themselves have not been asked if they agree. The Interactive Advertising Bureau and Edelman Berland surveyed 5,000 people in N.Y. and D.C. about visiting news, business and entertainment sites after exposing them to samples of in-feed ads.

The survey showed that in-feed ads were cited as both the least annoying and most interesting with 86% agreeing that ads were necessary for them to receive free online content. When shown examples of in-feed ads, 82% of business news readers, 85% of entertainment news readers and 41% of news readers felt the content was clearly from a sponsor. These totals correlate to the 45% of business news readers and 44% of entertainment news readers who felt the ads enhanced the website experience, compared to only 27% of news site readers.

In determining consumer interest in a native ad, authority, relevance and trust are critical to the format. Consumers cited all three by high margins in determining whether the ad was worth pursuing.

Focus group members advised that publishers play a critical role in ensuring brands learn to tell stories—not just pitch goods—and that only brands that fit the site be allowed in. The credibility of the site itself confers credibility onto the advertiser, readers say.

That’s all well and good, but consider the source of this study—an ad tech association and an agency. They were driving the examples shown to readers and they excluded the content “recommendation” networks. A survey from content marketing company Contently recently found 66.6% of those surveyed felt they had been deceived by sponsored articles posing as standard editorial and 57% said they preferred banner ads to sponsored posts. Additionally, 53% said they didn’t trust sponsored content.

Before the media pats itself on the back cheering all is well with native advertising, first consider the full experience of both good and bad advertorial that co-exist on many sites. Both surveys show that publishers better get this right.

To Deliver Emergency Water Filtration Kits To Philippines

Out2martincounty.com

In photo: RW2 water filtration kit

Palm City, FL – (December 11, 2013) Missionary Waters, a non-profit organization in Palm City, is preparing to send 3,000 portable water filtration kits to the Philippines to aid in the production of safe drinking water for the remote areas and islands hit by Typhoon Haiyan.

These light weight kits are easy to assemble and can produce up to 18 gallons per hour of clean water in the most remote places, providing pathogen-free and contaminant-free drinking water from any fresh water source. The kits will last for over six years without replacement parts, reducing the labor and cost of conventional water supplies.

“Together, right now, we can impact over 500,000 people” said Allen Korson, CEO and Founder. “Help us to help the people of the Philippines. A simple donation of $59 will send a complete kit and save over 170 lives from parasites and bacteria in their drinking and personal use water.”

The RW2 water filtration kits can be purchased through donation at the organizational website www.missionarywaters.com or contact us at 772-286-9995.

“When Renewed Waters came to the BDBMC looking for a location, we immediately jumped into action and found appropriate space within 48 hours”, said Tim Dougher, Executive Director of the Business Development Board of Martin County. “With so many people affected by water quality issues around the world, it’s nice to see a Martin County targeted company offer this kind of assistance” Dougher said.
