French tax administration helps Guy Wildenstein to disinherit

By Olivia Harris, published on Jan 9, 2014

...Wildenstein is vowed to be the perfect victim. She is a foreigner. She has little knowledge of her rights and the family’s estate. She is therefore expected to be influenced easily. Besides, the Wildenstein family is close to France’s key men of power.

By JJFCPA, published on Dec 22, 2009

One of the most useful and powerful retirement vehicles is the Roth IRA. Named after the deceased Senator William Roth of Delaware, the Roth IRA was enacted in 1997 as an option for those taxpayers that met certain income thresholds and other requirements to transfer money to their own personal retirement plan. It differed from the traditional IRA plans which allowed a deduction from income for tax purposes which the Roth does not allow.
