Taxes in Year of Death

Flower for Funeral

It’s so exciting that the long weekend is here. It’s a la la la long weekend. The song “It’s Friday Yeah” is popping into my head. Even Timmy the cat is in good spirits here. Although Brian Cody’s replacement in the Kilkenny hot seat is a worry for him, given his love for The Cats.

Looking After Older Clients

“You can live to be a hundred if you give up all things that make you want to live to be a hundred”  Woody Allen Last Sunday evening at 5 o clock in Croke Park I felt 100. Losing the All-Ireland final to Limerick is not unusual. They haven’t lost a championship game in a

Agricultural Relief – The Basics

Farmland

A big hello from sunny Tramore. We are basking in the Azores high. Looking at the weather forecast last night the big H is passing over Waterford this weekend. Sunshine and mid 20’s. That’s just ideal. Factor 30, speedos, 99’s, and barbecues. Bring it on! Yours truly was a very happy man last Saturday evening.

Capital Gains Tax Tips

I am off to Tayto Park. Not being the bravest I will do the roller coasters and will love them when I am getting off. Between theme parks and the start of the hurling it is a very exciting weekend. You’d have to fancy Waterford against Tipp on Sunday given recent form and the home

Development Land – Losses and Gains

  Hello there from bright and fresh Tramore. It’s difficult to know where to start this week with what is going on in Ukraine. It’s quite shocking that an invasion has taken place in a peaceful democratic country. Putin has lied to western leaders for the last few weeks. He spits out propaganda about protecting

Business Property Relief in Action

Hello there. It’s less than a month to Christmas and not a child in the house washed. Sure, we can get a 25% discount on soap and Head & Shoulders with a Black Friday deal. I am smothering with a head cold. I took my first antigen test on Wednesday and the line told me

Tax Return Season – A Whistle Stop Tour

The cat is missing me a lot. He’s not as friendly as he used to be, and he feels all the love and affection he shared with me is a one-way street. I have explained to him that this is a very busy time of year. I must dedicate my time to our clients who
