Letter From the President: Winter 2017

For a lot of people, 2016 was a challenging year. Following a year of contentious rhetoric on the primary campaign trail, the presidential election was perhaps even more divisive. We lost music icons Prince, David Bowie, and Leonard Cohen. Even Brad and Angelina - the epitome of the Hollywood love story gone right - announced that they would part ways.

On a personal note, time is flying for the Lineweaver family. We sent our oldest daughter off to college at the Farmer’s School of Business at Miami of Ohio. She is actively pursuing a finance degree (I can’t imagine where she came up with that idea) with a minor in entrepreneurship. She made the rowing team, and is involved with the Wilks Institute for Leadership. Tyler turned 16 and is now driving (so keep in mind that the roads may be safer during school hours). He also made the JV basketball team and started his own landscaping business this  summer. Delaney is in 8th grade now and playing soccer, basketball, and is singing in show choir.

So, while we’re sad to see 2016 go, we’re also excited for a new year, and new beginning. As we kick off 2017, we at the Lineweaver family and Lineweaver Financial Group want to wish you and your family a happy, prosperous, and safe new year.

Introducing Kids (and Grandkids!) to Investing Setting the stage As your kids learn more about managing their money, introduce the concept of investing. Its a great way to reinforce the ideas of goal setting, saving, and budgeting. It can help put them on a long-term path to financial independence. Keep it simple When kids are in elementary or middle school, its a good idea to teach kids to put money away in three buckets: save, spend and share. As they get a little older, say into high school, you can get a little more sophisticated in how you approach investing. Start by explaining that investing is a means of using your money to try to create more money. This usually starts to make more sense for kids when they start to work and they can finally realize how hard they have to work to pay for something, especially after Uncle Sam takes his fair share. Make it real You can start your investing conversation by having a family meeting. You should explain that your intention is to

We know that many people are curious about the tax bill announced in the House of Representatives yesterday, H.R.1: The Tax Cut and Jobs Act. Weve put together a balanced review of the bill, and wanted to share it in a timely way. The proposed bill: Condenses individual tax rates to Zero, 12%, 25%, 35%, and 39.6%. Increases the standard deduction from $6,350 to $12,000 for individuals and from $12,700 to $24,000 for married couples. Establishes a new Family Credit, which includes expanding the Child Tax Credit from $1,000 to $1,600 to help parents with the cost of raising children, and providing a credit of $300 for each parent and non-child dependent to help all families with their everyday expenses. Preserves the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit to help families care for their children and older dependents such as a disabled grandparent who may need additional support. Preserves the Earned Income Tax Credit to provide tax relief for low-income individuals and families. Streamlines
