By Jim Lineweaver, CFP®, AIF® President and Founder It might not be so shocking to learn that many of us don’t stick to our New Year’s resolutions. In fact, according to a study conducted by the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, only 8% of people achieved their New Year’s resolutions in 2021.  One problem that typically arises is that we set aspirational goals for ourselves instead of ones based on the reality of integrating them into our everyday activities. This can set us up for failure and create self-doubt in our abilities. Here’s a list of attainable resolutions I’ve put together to give you the confidence needed to stay true to your financial goals throughout the new year.  The first resolution that will help set a solid foundation to your financial plan is to set aside time to look at your insurance plans. You’ll want to make sure all your insurance is in proper order including life insurance, disability insurance and even property and casualty.

But, because they kept the loans entirely in the father’s name, when he passed, the debt was forgiven. But what many people don’t know is that the forgiveness of debt – in this case student loan debt - is considered income by the IRS – and therefore taxable. As you can imagine, in this case it was significant: an additional $40,000. However, we were able to work with the family and the IRS to get the entire amount forgiven as well – so they ended up having the debt and the tax bill forgiven.   Given the pension payouts and their savings, they had significant assets that needed to be managed eff
