When a Loved One Passes - Income Tax Implications - Part Two

Here Bruce Schmiedlin, CPA offers Part Two of our conversation regarding income tax issues.

Dave Miglin and Broadlawns Medical Center

While our focus is generally regional and national when it comes to the business news we often stray into something hyper-local. That day is today.  Here you will meet Dave Miglin who is running for one of two open seats on the Broadlawns Medical Center Board of Trustees. You're a click away from learning a bit of Broadlawns History and what Dave is championing in this run.  The election isn't until November but it's never too soon to learn more. And, it all matters to Polk County, Iowa citizens.
