Estate planning attorney Michelle Lerman calls in and tells us about options for the new Transfer-On-Death Deed (TOD) and if a living trust is still the best option for leaving your home to an heir. She then walks us through the steps for setting up a TOD Deed and mentions several pros and cons. We also discuss the new California Law giving rights to the terminally ill patient to request life ending treatments.
Later on I discuss things to consider as you file taxes such as state sales tax deduction, child care and the American opportunity tax credit. A caller asks for my opinion about safe money invested in two different funds. I also explain new "computer" benefits for 529 college savings plans and I discuss what index beating active mutual funds have in common.
Don't forget about our upcoming seminar at Four Points by Sheraton San Jose Airport on May 19th where Rob Black and I will explain how to build a retirement portfolio that lasts. Registration is only $5 so click HERE to sign up!
