Season 2 Episode 43: Filing Taxes as Partners with a LLC or Series LLC with Pete Schindele
Have you wondered how you would file taxes if you had or formed a partnership through an LLC or Series LLC? Partnerships are required to file additional documentation with the IRS called form 1065.
An entity owned by two or more people is considered a partnership by the IRS. The one exception is if the partners are married. In this case, married partners may choose to file a joint personal tax return and forgo form 1065. However, there may be advantages to filing form 1065. Find out why you might want to file form 1065, even though you technically don't have to, in this session of Royal Investing with Pete Schindele.
Season 2 Episode 42: Essential Estate Planning Actions for Unmarried Partners with Richard Bechtol
There are many reasons couples decide not to get married. Some choose to live together before getting married, while others see no need to walk down the aisle to make the relationship official. According to a Pew Research study, there is a growing acceptance of cohabitation in America.
The study also revealed that the number of adults in the U.S. who are currently married is down from 58 percent in 1995 to 53 percent today. Over the same period, the number of Americans living with an unmarried partner increased from 3 percent to 7 percent.
In spite of these trends, unmarried couples may not realize that they do not have the same legal rights as marriage partners. This presentation will explore estate planning for unmarried couples and why it should be a priority for you and your significant other.
