Highlights of December’s San Francisco Tax Bulletin

The December edition of Safe Harbor LLP’s tax bulletin contains information on the following topics:

  • Longevity Annuities. Planning on living a long time? Deferred income annuities (DIAS) have recently become popular.  New regulations from the US Treasury department may increase their appeal, opening the way for so-called ‘longevity’ annuities.

  • Global  Funds vs. International Funds.   There are differences between the two, and especially since the US stock markets have outperformed foreign markets, now people speculate the reverse may start to become true.

  • Accumulated Assets.  If you have a “C” corporation, the accumulated assets tax might impact your tax planning.
