Free Saltwater Fishing this Memorial Day in Florida - 05/28/10 04:56 PM
I'm e-mailing you today to announce that Gov. Charlie Crist has authorized FREE saltwater fishing this Memorial Day weekend. He wants Floridians and visitors to see firsthand that our beaches are clean and the fish are biting. It's simple - residents and non-residents can recreationally saltwater fish on May 29, 30, and 31 without a saltwater fishing license. All other normal recreational saltwater fishing rules, seasons, bag and size limits apply. I share the Governor's concern about people canceling fishing trips due to misperceptions about the oil spill. In fact, oil from the spill remains far away from Florida's coast and all (0 comments)

Prevent New Tax Burdens on Real Estate - 05/26/10 09:49 AM
Congress is considering changes to the tax code in order to pay for a number of tax provisions expiring in 2010. Two of these provisions would impact real estate. The first would require all owners of rental properties to file IRS 1099 forms for all contractors they do business with if they pay that contractor $600 or more in any given year. This onerous provision would apply to even the smallest landlord. In addition, Congress is considering taxing "carried interest" at ordinary income rates instead of capital gains. Carried interest rules govern how general partners in real estate investments pay taxes when the investment is sold. These (0 comments)

New law sets Doc Stamp Tax on Short Sales in Florida - 05/03/10 09:02 AM
Doc stamp taxes on short sales: Current practice now law. The wave of short sales over the past several years brought up an interesting question when it comes to collecting documentary stamp taxes: Should the amount be based on the purchase price or on the amount of the outstanding mortgage balance? The Florida Department of Revenue ruled in September 2008 that doc stamp taxes should be based on the sale price, and legislation was drafted during the 2009 session to codify the DOR ruling into law. But the bill failed after being used as a vehicle for last-minute amendments. This year, (0 comments)
