Act Now! Save 1031 Exchanges!

Threats to 1031 Exchanges pop up every few years.  Threats to 1031 Exchanges have once again surfaced. However, the threats this time around are much more concerning.

We are facing perhaps the most critical threats to 1031 Exchanges than we have ever faced before with various proposals to limit, reduce or complete eliminate the 1031 Exchange.

How Can You Help - Be Heard! 

Everyone needs to reach out and contact their U.S. Senators and U.S. House of Representatives as well as any other political or legislative contacts.  The devastating effect that the elimination of 1031 Exchanges would have on the overall economy needs to be emphasized.

Our elected officials need to realize that the elimination of the 1031 Exchange would have a significant and devastating impact on the overall economy. The elimination of Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code would reduce GDP (the overall economy) by over .8%.

You can visit the website Save the 1031 Exchange to get more information regarding the threat to 1031 Exchanges and to learn how you can get involved and get your voice heard.

Do NOT take the 1031 Exchange for granted.  Act now and be heard.  Your voice and opinion are important.

Help Fight/Prevent Elder Financial Abuse

Elder Financial Abuse Continues to Grow

I am always dismayed to see the statistics that show how fast elder financial abuse is growing. It pains me to read how our elders have been abused.  I have a very difficult time understanding how someone can abuse another person, especially our elders.  I was taught to respect my elders - not abuse them.

But, the fact remains that elder abuse, especially elder financial abuse, is on the rise at a rapid pace.  It is therefore critical that each of us pay close attention to our elders and try to identify - and then report - any kind of elder abuse.

How Can You Help? 

There are many, many websites, help phone lines and agencies that have been set-up to address elder financial abuse.

The North American Securities Administrators Association has published a website called Serve Our Seniors that provides lots of resources where seniors can get help, including a hot line.

FINRA, which regulates the securities industry, has also set-up a Senior Help Line.  Seniors can call the help line at (844) 574-3577 for assistance, information and/or to discuss any securities issue where they have been harmed (or perceived to have been harmed).  This help line has been credited with saving seniors retirement funds and in a few cases actually saving their lives.

You can also Google elder financial abuse and find many other ways to assist elders that are going through any kind of abuse.
