I own some real estate. If I die and my children inherit it their basis is the value at the time I die? If I were to put the property in a trust first with them receiving it through the trust after I die do they still get the stepped up basis.
I own some real estate. If I die and my children inherit it their basis is the value at the time I die? If I were to put the property in a trust first with them receiving it through the trust after I die do they still get the stepped up basis.A step-up in cost basis readjusts the value of an appreciated asset over a period of time for tax purposes. It sure beats making your heirs pay full capital gains tax on an appreciated asset.So, Paul pays 100 grand for an old rental house 30 years ago and then leaves it in a revocable trust for his kids. But when Paul dies, that property is reappraised at 400 grand. It has changed value by a factor of 300 grand. Will his kids pay capital gains tax on that amount? Lions, tigers and bears, oh my……The answer is no, due to the IRS allowing the kids to take a “stepped up cost basis” on that property. Rather than using the initial 100 grand Papa paid for that property, they can consider the 400 grand value as reappraised at the time of inheritance as the original cost.So the kids sell the property for 500 grand and now they are considered to have made 100 grand on that sell rather than 400. I like the stepped up cost basis……Oh yes, I do.So on to your trust questions. Remember that nothing changes as for ownership in a revocable trust…..it is still you…..you still own everything in it and can do with it what you wish. Nothing changes…• Yes, your heirs will receive the stepped up cost basis—maybe even multiple times if the trust goes first to your wife and then to the kids, etc.But an irrevocable trust is quite different. Once you place property into an Irrevocable trust, you no longer own it—not a penny of it—the trustees own it. And one cannot leave property to heirs for a stepped up cost basis that they do not own at the time they die. So• no way.Now it is a bit more complicated than that. If you take out the Irrevocable trust when you bought the house 30 years ago but did not put the house in it, you may be able to take a SUCB when you put it into the trust 20 years later. That will help them some but not nearly as much.Finally, I noticed this in your comments…..”it would be an irrevocable trust set up to protect property from Medicaid.”There is no such thing. Medicaid has a 5-year look-back period and revocable/irrevocable they do not care. They will just laugh at you, tell you to pay up or then they will cut off your Medicaid and that is that.I think I have talked with you before. If you are having trouble with Medicaid (the Bastards) there are a few tricks but Living Trusts like this are not one of them. There are other Medicaid trusts available (Medicaid will own and control them) and spend-down plans—Will help…..just don’t let someone take your money.Best to you, my friend.
Does Bernie Sanders' proposed wealth tax have constitutional conflicts?
I don't think Sanders's plan is yet detailed enough to address these issues. You're right that direct taxes must be apportioned among the states by population, and if he is proposing a federal tax on wealth itself -- simply on the basis of ownership, like property taxes -- then that is a direct tax and he will have to do something about the apportionment requirement.However, he is also talking about taxing inheritances. The IRS considers an inheritance a form of income, so it's an indirect tax and governed by the Sixteenth Amendment. Of course, inheritance tax can be avoided by various dodges such as putting the money in a trust or a foundation.Another possibility is to pass a federal law that effectively compels the states to pass a direct tax on wealth, the same way we have compelled them to raise the drinking age. That would get around the apportionment requirement, because the tax would be imposed by the states rather than by the federal government.
Is inheritance fair? Is it fair for a child to have the benefits of being born into a rich family vs. a poor family when he does not have a say in it? If it is not fair, can anything be done about it, practically?
I agree with Taimur Abdaal - you are overestimating the importance of inheritance.It used to be the case that most wealth was in the form of land. There was a limited amount of land and those that had it were rich and those that didn't were poor. That land was passed from father to son.Then came the industrial revolution. The exact history varies from country to country, but industrialisation causes a move away from agriculture being almost the entire economy (which is what gave land its value) to the production of good and services being the main components.For agriculture, the main thing you need is land. For low-tech manufacturing, the main thing you need is factories. Once you get into high-tech manufacturing and services, however, the main thing you need is people.That means that most wealth in developed countries now isn't in the form of traditional capital (land, buildings, machines, and even money) which can be inherited, but rather it is in the form of "human capital". That is, the time and abilities of people.The easiest way to measure human capital is by earnings potential. The average salary in the UK is about ÂŁ25,000 (38,000 USD). If you assume a 40 year career and an interest rate of 5%, that works out to a present value when you start your career of ÂŁ430,000 (650,000 USD). Even pretty wealthy parents aren't going to be able to leave anything like that much to each of their children and even if they do, they aren't going to leave it to them until they are in their 50's or 60's.That means inheritance isn't going to make a big difference to your financial situation (unless your parents are billionaires).What does make a big difference is increasing your earnings potential. Wealthy parents tend to have wealthy children not because of the money they give them but because of the things they do that help their children earn a lot of money. There are the obvious things like private schools and introductions to key contacts that get you your first job, which can play a significant role. The biggest contributor, though, is simply one of attitude. They expect and encourage their children to be successful, they instil in them the importance of a good education, they help their children with their homework, and generally guide their children along a path to success.They don't guide their children to do those things because they are wealthy, of course. They guide their children to do those things because they do those things themselves, and it is those things that made them wealthy.Your question was about fairness. I don't really care about the fairness of inheritance, since it isn't a big factor. The fact that who your parents are has such a big effect on your life obviously isn't fair. The solution isn't to stop parents helping their children, however - you'll never manage that unless you move to all children being raised by the state as in Brave New World (not a good plan!). The solution is the help other children get the support and encouragement they need - raise everyone to the same level, don't lower everyone to the same level.
Since Pakistan was founded on the basis of Islam, why isn't Sharia law implemented in Pakistan?
It's a huge misconception that Pakistan was founded on the basis of Islam. Pakistan wasn't meant to be an Islamic state, it was meant to be a state for Muslims because they were a minority in greater India. Founding fathers were convinced that without a separate state for Muslims, the community will not get fundamental human rights, equal representation and fair share of opportunities. It's a nuanced but important distinction. Pakistan didn't even have Islamic in its name for first 9 years, it was called Dominion of Pakistan until 1956 and despite being given the title of Islamic later on, religion had very little to do with the state up until late 1970s.Clubbing scene used to be lit in 60sCigarette ad specifically targeted at womenLiquor ad in a daily newspaperOld School Rock band from 1960sCelebrating Christian and Hindu holidays in 1950sThere's overwhelming evidence to substantiate that Pakistan wasn't supposed to be an Islamic state and the country was doing fine until Zia regime happened. That's when things really started to go downhill as Zia gave voice and center stage to Islamist political parties, announced unconditional support for Taliban in an attempt to legitimize his unconstitutional regime and later on fundamentalist fringes and armed extremist organizations were also embraced by establishment as an informal fragment of country's foreign policy. That's when Shari'a law really started to seep into state and administration affairs.The sad thing is they didn't even get that right, most of the amendments and legislation done in the name of Shari'a is either poor misinterpretation of Islamic teachings or political abuse of the religion reflecting power hungry Mullahism more than anything else. The country is now a confused mish mash of limp democracy and bastardized religious apparatus. It's neither a great secular democracy nor a proper Shari'a state.It really saddens me that a country founded to safeguard the rights of a minority has become one of the worst offenders of minority rights.
What are the different types of businesses?
It is really good that you are thinking about to start business. As you know, there are a lot of benefits that assist you to make a good business relationship with your customers and you can earn huge money throughout this.So, keep it up and start a good business according to your requirements.One more thing, as you know, online business is booming nowadays. Everyone is thinking about the online business, so , if you want a rapid growth in your business in lesser time, then think about the online business.Basically, There are three major types of online businesses:1. Service BusinessA service type of business provides intangible products (products with no physical form). Service type firms offer professional skills, expertise, advice, and other similar products.Examples of service businesses are: schools, repair shops, hair salons, banks, accounting firms, and law firms.2. Merchandising BusinessThis type of business buys products at wholesale price and sells the same at retail price. They are known as "buy and sell" businesses. They make profit by selling the products at prices higher than their purchase costs.A merchandising business sells a product without changing its form. Examples are: grocery stores, convenience stores, distributors, and other resellers.3. Manufacturing BusinessUnlike a merchandising business, a manufacturing business buys products with the intention of using them as materials in making a new product. Thus, there is a transformation of the products purchased.A manufacturing business combines raw materials, labor, and factory overhead in its production process. The manufactured goods will then be sold to customers.Hybrid BusinessHybrid businesses are companies that may be classified in more than one type of business. A restaurant, for example, combines ingredients in making a fine meal (manufacturing), sells a cold bottle of wine (merchandising), and fills customer orders (service).Nonetheless, these companies may be classified according to their major business interest. In that case, restaurants are more of the service type • they prdining services.Forms of Business OrganizationThese are the basic forms of business ownership:1. Sole ProprietorshipA sole proprietorship is a business owned by only one person. It is easy to set-up and is the least costly among all forms of ownership.The owner faces unlimited liability; meaning, the creditors of the business may go after the personal assets of the owner if the business cannot pay them.The sole proprietorship form is usually adopted by small business entities.2. PartnershipA partnership is a business owned by two or more persons who contribute resources into the entity. The partners divide the profits of the business among themselves.In general partnerships, all partners have unlimited liability. In limited partnerships,creditors cannot go after the personal assets of the limited partners.3. CorporationA corporation is a business organization that has a separate legal personality from its owners. Ownership in a stock corporation is represented by shares of stock.The owners (stockholders) enjoy limited liability but have limited involvement in the company's operations. The board of directors, an elected group from the stockholders, controls the activities of the corporation.In addition to those basic forms of business ownership, these are some other types of organizations that are common today:Limited Liability CompanyLimited liability companies (LLCs) in the USA, are hybrid forms of business that have characteristics of both a corporation and a partnership. An LLC is not incorporated; hence, it is not considered a corporation.Nonetheless, the owners enjoy limited liability like in a corporation. An LLC may elect to be taxed as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, or a corporation.CooperativeA cooperative is a business organization owned by a group of individuals and is operated for their mutual benefit. The persons making up the group are called members. Cooperatives may be incorporated or unincorporated.Some examples of cooperatives are: water and electricity (utility) cooperatives, cooperative banking, credit unions, and housing cooperatives.So, if you have still any query regarding the same, then please visit the this link: http://qr.ae/TYXv10
How did India end up as the most unsafe country for women in the Thomson Reuters Foundation poll while it is far from being the worst in the Global Gender Gap index and GIWPS index?
India is no doubt an underperformer as far as women’s issues are concerned and it will take some time for the mindset of the society to change. However, we are not as bad as the Thomson Reuters Foundation Poll indicates.Or should I say Thomson Reuters Foundation Perception Poll. I just sent an email seeking full polling data and what I received was this email:-Thank you for your interest in our annual perception poll -http://poll2018.trust.org/ - which is a survey of experts. It is totally based on perception not data. The poll data is attached.This was a repeat of a poll of experts in 2022 that ranked India as the fourth most dangerous country and led to an outcry. About a year later a student was raped and murdered on a bus in Delhi. Violence against women is now a serious issue in India. Data does not always tell the whole picture. Data is not always available on women related issued in many countries. Nor do perception polls tell the whole picture. But experts who know the situation on the ground can shed light on this.All of our experts needed to be working in a field related to women’s issues, be it health, education, violence, microfinance etc. We did not weight careers. We gave an assurance to the experts that their answers would be confidential to allow total honesty. We said we would only name them if we sought their permission.The list was compiled from a database of women’s rights experts built by the Thomson Reuters Foundation team that runs the annual Trust Conference, from previous women’s polls conducted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation and from key groups in various locations globally.In total 759 experts accessed the survey between March 26 and May 4 with 548 responses which corresponds to a response rate of 72.2 percent. The responses were fairly well spread globally with 89 from Africa, 84 from South Asia and the Pacific, 102 from South East Asia, 162 from Europe and 111 from the Americas.Our methodology is on our poll website.With regards BelindaBelinda GoldsmithEditor-in-Chief, Thomson Reuters Foundationhttp://news.trust.orgNow what was the supposed full polling data is the below data in tabular form which was received as attachment in pdf format:-RESULTS - 2022 poll:what are the five most dangerous countries for women?OVERALL CALCULATION RANK Country Rank India 1 Afghanistan 2 Syria 3 Somalia 4 Saudi Arabia 5 Pakistan 6 Democratic Republic of Congo 7 Yemen 8 Nigeria 9 United States of America 10Question 1: In your opinion, what are the five most dangerous countries for women to live in, in the world?

This includes domestic servitude; forced labour; bonded labour; forced marriage and sexual slavery. Country Rank India 1 Libya 2 Myanmar 3 Nigeria 4 Russia 4 Philippines 6 Afghanistan 7 Thailand 8 Nepal 9 Pakistan 10 Bangladesh 10No doubt that India still remains backward in terms of women’s rights, safety etc. and we don’t need such polls to say that. However, we also understand that we are not that bad as some people like to perceive. But then they have stated it clearly that it is “not based on Data but perception”. Even that with a sample size of 548 responses. As an election strategist, I am sure that the sample size is not good enough to accurately judge the mood of one District of India let alone the whole world.But that supposedly detailed polling data is the basis of this conclusion by Thomson Reuters Foundation. Yes, a 3 page pdf data which consists of 7 tables which are pasted above as it is. That is the “solid foundation” on which their conclusion rests.Need we say more…
What metrics forms the basis of the annual forbes billionaire rating considering that lots of Nigerians claim to be wealthier than Dangote?
I laughed out loud reading this.Lots of Nigerians claim to be roicher than Dangote, good for them!Let them come out and declare assets and show the legitimate business they are engaged in.Nigerians just like making mouth, to borrow a local phrase.To answer your question by the way:Forbes assesses individual networth by taking into account stakes in private and public companies, liquid capital, debt, artwork, real estate and so on.Forbes does not consider dictators, despots and anyone who was enriched by being in a position of power. So about 90% of Nigerian billionaires are automatically disqualified.
Should I be suspicious that my family is leaving my grandparents' house in the latter's name after they pass away? I was told that the house and property taxes are cheaper this way. This seems wrong, and I was told that I was getting the house.
Not sure where this question is heading, but.. If the property is in your grandparents name,and they are alive,.. then so be it. If they have died, then there is either a Will and Probate has been taken out, or there is no Will ,but Probate MUST still be taken out. . Unless you are explicitly named in the Will, any statements about “getting the house” is just baloney.The sequence following a death is. A person has made a will and in it has appointed an Executor. The Executor is responsible for carrying out the wishes of the deceased, and takes possession of all the assets and property immediately of the deceased. They then inform all the potential beneficiaries of the will,and proceed to file probate with the court. They are required to find all the debtors to the estate and try and find anyone who might have a claim..like a mortgage on the estate. Once the Probate has been proved..signed off by the court, the executor must then execute the instructions of the will,without fear or favour.If there is no Will, then anyone can approach the court,and they will appoint an Executor, usually a lawyer, and the process proceeds…with two differences. There will be less money ,as the lawyer takes a cut,and there is a fixed formula as to who gets what,. It will normally involve selling any property.
