Riedlinger Talks TAXES!
March 5, 2013
By: Stephen Kent
Member Gary Riedlinger
was kind enough to step in on a few hours notice when the scheduled speaker could not make the meeting. Gary shortened the tax talk he gives for Yeo and Yeo so that he could hit the high points that would be of interest.
Of course the most interesting of these points of the talk dealt with changes to the tax code that might affect Rotarians. Everyone took special note of the rates for those making over $400,000... even it it was only to look with wishful eyes. More interest was paid to those rates and changes which touch everyone.
The talk was very well received but was too technical to re-cap in the venue of a newsletter. Therefore we can only say "individual cases may vary. See your tax advisor concerning your own situation."
