At Wiesenberg & Company we have over twenty years experience in the Los Angeles gay and lesbian tax planning, the Los Angeles gay and lesbian accounting, and Los Angeles gay and lesbian estate planning areas. We are aware not only of the challenges but also the opportunities that Lesbian and Gay couples have in structuring their financial affairs. We are sensitive not only to the economic needs but to the overall requirements of a sound approach that provides security and peace of mind to both partners. Maximizing the tax savings for the LGBT community is not always the paramount objective although its role must be taken in to consideration.
Many tax and accounting situations are unique to the LGBT community. Taxes may need to be minimized on a per couple basis rather than on an individual basis. Are there overall advantages in registering as domestic partners, or are there better methods of achieving the same objectives? How should assets be titled? Are there inherent problems involved in the transfer of assets between couples that have been ignored? These are all concerns that Wiesenberg & Company has experience dealing with.
We work together with attorneys to provide estate planning tailored to the needs of the LGBT community. Although a few states such as California recognize the rights of same sex couples, most states and the federal government have not granted this recognition. This combination of contradicting legislation has created a confusing environment that requires skill and experience to navigate. Wiesenberg & Company has these qualities and is ready to help with overcome the challenges that face our clients.
