Rev Up Your Charitable Giving & Tax Savings with These Easy Tax Tips

Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments

By Yvonne Marsh, CFP®, CPA

This is the time of year when thoughts turn to helping others in need, whether with monetary donations, volunteer time, or charitable legacy planning.  While you are making your charitable giving plans, consider these tips to maximize the tax benefit of your good deeds:

  • Rather than donating cash to your favorite charity, donate appreciated investments instead.  Perhaps you bought stock many years ago that is now worth much more than you paid for it.  If you give the stock to the non-profit, and they cash it in, they don’t have to pay the tax on the capital gain.
  • If you are taking Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from your IRAs, and in turn writing a check to your church or charity, wait a minute!  You need to know about the Qualified Charitable Distribution rules where the IRS allows you to donate your RMDs (up to $100,000) directly to your non-profit, and not count that RMD as income on your tax return.  Who knew the IRS could be so kind? This is a great way to restore a tax deduction for charitable giving that you aren’t otherwise receiving if you don’t itemize your deductions. (And if your financial advisor hasn’t told you about this little gem, you might need to reassess the value your advisor is bringing to the table.)
  • Perhaps you would like to leave some money to your church or charity in your will.  Great idea!  However, instead of gifting through your will, designate your non-profit as a beneficiary on your IRA.  Why?  Because IRA assets are taxable as ordinary income to your heirs, but not taxable to your favorite charity.  Let your heirs inherit your after-tax investments instead.
  • Or maybe you like the idea of leaving some of your IRA money to your favorite charity but hate to think of short-changing your heirs.  One solution is to use a portion of your RMDs and buy permanent life insurance.  Then you can freely give that taxable IRA to your non-profit knowing that your family will receive a tax-free life insurance payout. Now everyone is happy! (Except perhaps the IRS) 

Tax planning and charitable giving is not just for the rich – it’s for anyone who wants to choose where their hard-earned money goes – to taxes or to charities.  Give our office a call if you would like a complimentary meeting to learn more.

Gear Up Your Garage for Winter

Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Winter is fast approaching and your car might just have to spend another freezing, snowy and icy winter outside on the driveway.  Why?  Because of your “stuff” that won’t fit in the house is in your garage.  

What’s the solution?  You could place a AAA fridge magnet in a prominent location near your phone should you car fail to start this winter. Another solution might be to practice entering and exiting your vehicle from its sunroof should your passenger car doors become obstructed by your garage “stuff”.

Or you could pick up the phone and call PremierGarage of Knoxville to help get your garage organized and help your family live more comfortably and safely through the winter. Custom solutions from PremierGarage can make your garage more functional for winter, as well as the rest of the year. Garage storage cabinets, wall-hanging systems and a durable PremierOne® floor can transform your garage into functional living space, protect your car and enhance your home.

Garage Storage Cabinets Eliminate Clutter

Garages are famous for clutter. Stacks of stuff that take up valuable floor space. Custom garage storage cabinets capture vertical space, maximize storage and provide safe, organized storage for all your needs.

Unlike the one-size-fits-all storage alternatives found in big box stores, PremierGarage’s proprietary garage storage cabinets are designed to custom fit your garage, maximize available storage and meet your specific needs. Their designs provide safe, organized storage for all that stuff. And PremierGarage’s professional and experienced installation teams are your assurance that your new cabinetry will be safely and securely installed.

Wall-Hanging and Overhead Systems Provide More Space

Combined with your PremierGarage storage cabinets, overhead rack systems free up additional space by getting everything off your garage floor, avoiding potentially dangerous trip hazards and providing greater maneuverability when parking cars.  Overhead storage racks are the perfect solution for seldom-used and large items including camping gear, sports equipment and seasonal decorations. 

Slatwall panels also offer homeowners wall-hanging storage options that can be customized with specialty hooks, baskets and shelves to organize large and small items including bikes, golf bags and wheelbarrows. Slatwall panels can even be installed over your workbench to keep tools handy, or around windows or into a tight corner to take full advantage of all your available storage space.

Garage Flooring is Functional and Beautiful 

PremierOne® industry-tough garage floor coating, the most advanced technology in the industry, makes your garage a more beautiful space and is extremely low maintenance.  PremierOne®floor coating has a 10-year warranty and: 

  • Comes in a variety of colors 
  • Stands up to the heat and friction of hot tires
  • Stain and slip resistant
  • Helps reduce allergens 

PremierGarage of Knoxville, in operation for almost 25 years, is committed to helping people live better lives through better and safer organization in every area of your home.

At Dental Arts of Tellico Village You’re Treated Like Family

Friday, October 9th, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments

“Family dentistry has always been part of my life,” said Dr. Angela Burns. “I became inspired to enter the dental profession after observing my father, who launched his own dental career 55 years ago. It became a life’s calling. I always admired the personal level of care he provided. He absolutely loves interacting with his patients and associates, and like me, he feels truly fulfilled when he’s serving others.”

Dr. Angie graduated from the University of Tennessee Memphis College of Dentistry in 1996 and went on to complete her residency at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Dr. Angie’s father opened Dental Arts of Tellico Village in 1996.

“Our entire team is focused on helping you and your family members to achieve the optimal dental health and oral hygiene. That’s why we continue to invest in training, education and the latest and most advanced technology designed for the early detection, and in many instances, the prevention, of potential dental diseases.”

Are Your Home’s Oriental & Area Rugs Holiday Season Fresh?

Friday, October 9th, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments

By Kerry McDuffie, Owner of Superior Carpet & Rug Cleaning

Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away. Remember last holiday season? Remember the pre-holiday to-do list? Remember trying to complete that to-do list in just a few days? Remember wishing the holidays were over?  

Today is a great time to begin planning for this season’s holiday events. As a father and grandfather, I know how important this time of the year can be for families but also how stressful. At Superior Carpet & Rug Cleaning, we’ve been helping busy families prepare for busy holiday seasons since 1985.

Are your home’s Oriental and area rugs on your cleaning to-do list? Why not enhance the appearance of every room in your home while providing a clean and healthy surface for your children and grandchildren to play on by cleaning your Oriental and area rugs? 

There’s also a practical side. Clean Oriental rugs will not only look better longer, but they’ll also last longer. Abrasives, dirt, and other contaminants tracked into our homes and onto our rugs not only make them look dull and dingy, but can also permanently damage your rugs fibers. And the snow and ice removal chemicals that were tracked into your home over the course of last winter can chemically bond to rug fibers, significantly reducing their life expectancy.

Our Farragut based Oriental and area rug cleaning boutique uses a proprietary 11-step washing process that will safely clean all of your rugs, including those that are be destined to become family heirlooms. We have also recently made significant investments in even newer technology to ensure that we can continue to offer you the very best Oriental and area rug washing services available anywhere in East Tennessee.

So if you can use a little help preparing for the holiday season this year – and who couldn’t – remember the company who has earned a superior reputation for unmatched superior cleaning: Superior Carpet & Rug Cleaning.

Designing Organized Spaces

Because we’re spending more time around the house nowadays, many Americans are learning to fully appreciate their homes. Our kitchens are once again a favorite family gathering place where we share our daily experiences. Our family rooms provide a much needed diversion from the world with gaming and new feature movies and old classics streaming on our widescreen televisions. And our beautifully landscaped patios and gardens offer the peace and tranquility that often eludes us with our hectic career and family schedules.

But despite these wonderful features of our homes that we are coming to enjoy more, you no doubt have become increasingly more focused on certain areas of your home that might have become a source of growing frustration for you. Are you going on a hunt to get dressed each morning?  Does your car even fit in the garage?  Do the doors stay closed in the laundry and pantry because the spaces just don’t work?

How can one family have accumulated so much “STUFF” you ask yourself? Well, the solution to your “STUFF” issues may be easier than you might expect: Closets by McKenry.

For nearly two decades, Closets by McKenry owner and founder, Chris McKenry, has helped homeowners from L.A. to Knoxville overcome their storage and organizational problems. And, more recently, Chris has been helping a growing number of professionals transition from their conventional office places to their new at-home offices that enable busy professionals like yourself to remain both productive and efficient.

Closets by McKenry is locally owned and independently operated and is not a franchise.

They are also very proud to support their local and area business economy by being the exclusive Knoxville distributor for Sevierville-based Inspiration Home Closet Systems. 

Chris firmly believes that bringing order and organization to our surroundings can enhance our lives and reduce stress. He describes the number one mistake people make in their closets and storage spaces: “Not taking an extra minute to plan and think of their needs. It is not JUST a closet, or garage, or laundry. It is the place that affects your entire day.” 

Chris always asks many questions to make sure everything that needs a place has a place, and he loves bringing a smile to a client’s face.

“You have many choices when selecting a closet and storage company,” said Chris. “But what really successfully differentiates Closets by McKenry in the minds of our customers is our love in taking care of them and going that extra mile.”

The Process of Customizing Your Home is as Easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Consultation: Closets by McKenry is currently offering both in-home or virtual consultations, whichever the client is more comfortable with.  At that time we discuss your needs, goals, and measure the space.  

2. Review proposal: Closets by McKenry will sit down with you either in the showroom – while practicing social distancing and wearing a mask – or virtually to review the proposal and answer questions.  You will have a 3D rendering of your project, along with the total cost and timeline. You will see exactly what your new space will look like, and changes can be made at this time.  

3. Installation: Closets by McKenry’s experienced, friendly installation professionals will safely and quickly install your components – on your schedule – so you can begin enjoying the benefits of “organization by design” as soon as possible!

It’s as simple as that!

Restyle Your Fur Event

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments

September 11th & 12th from 10 am to 5:30 pm

Do you have a sentimental fur stole, jacket, or coat hanging in your closet not being worn? Let Restyle Your Fur perform an unforgettable “trans-fur-mation” by having expert furriers:

» Convert it into a fabulous vest or 2-in-1 jacket with removable sleeves
» Make a cuddly teddy bear, pillow, or throw
» Enlarge, downsize, or repair your garment
» Create a lightweight reversible fur/silk raincoat
» Shear it to update the look

Fur is one of the few materials that can be stripped apart and entirely restyled. Beyond alterations, it can be sheared to a short plush, updated to a different style, or, most commonly, added as fur collars, cuffs, or lining for raincoats and everyday coats to add luxury and style. At our Restyle Your Fur event, we will first assess the condition of the fur of your coat and then discuss updating and restyling options for you. Restyle Your Fur is proud to make perfect fur alterations, always with on-time delivery.

If you were lucky enough to receive a fur coat from past generations, it may require a restyle to keep up with today’s fashion trends. Updating your furs will give you a new piece you can comfortably wear and even pass down to younger generations. 

Restyle Your Furs is an independent business that continues to fuel the ever evolving restyling market. All furs are restyled in the United States by their highly qualified professionals. The Lily Pad is thrilled to partner with them for this event! To learn more about Restyle Your Furs, visit www.restyleyourfur.com

Say Goodbye to Assembly Line Medicine

You may have to take a number and stand in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, but you don’t have to settle for the assembly line-like experience growing so common nowadays. 

Advances in medical science in the United States have dramatically enhanced life expectancies from 54.1 years in 1918 to 78.9 years in 2020.  However, these revolutionary advances in medicine have come at an enormous financial and personal cost to patients as many rural hospitals are forced to close their doors and urban hospitals and medical centers are forced to consolidate or face going out of business.  Today only one-third of physicians are still in private practice, and it is estimated that only 50% of our current health system will remain in place during the next decade.  

If you’re the type of individual who truly values your relationships with your medical providers once so prevalent in the healthcare community, it’s easy to appreciate your concern for the future as medical care becomes increasingly driven by bottom lines – often at the expense of you, the patient.   

Fortunately, a growing number of private practice medical providers are pushing back against these managed care, socialized medical models so common in Europe and elsewhere today.

Launched in 2016 by husband and wife team, Scott Gallian, MD, MBA, and U.S. Air Force veteran, and Lauren Gallian, FNP-BC, Gallian Medical Group in nearby Hardin Valley offers a fresh and totally new approach to providing caring and compassionate, full-service primary care to their patients, unlike the socialized medicine trends that so much of our healthcare system has embarked on. Complete with in-house diagnostic lab, EKG, and X-ray services, Gallian Medical Group offers their patients a level of medical excellence that’s becoming increasingly more difficult to find today.

What patients appreciate the most about Gallian Medical Group is a level of compassionate caring that they remember from their past. Gone are the “bus station-like” waiting room experiences and “steeple chase-like” visits with your healthcare provider. What remains is a team of dedicated medical professionals who are totally committed to your individual healthcare needs in a caring, compassionate, and unrushed environment. 

We trust that you are going to enjoy this month’s issue of East Tennessee’s Mountain Views and our interview with Scott Gallian, MD, and Family Nurse Practitioner, Lauren Gallian, FNC-BC, and the newest member of the Gallian healthcare team, Family Nurse Practitioner, Gina Bearden, FNC-BC. We believe that at Gallian Medical Group, you will rediscover an entirely new level of personalized healthcare that you might have thought no longer existed.

MV: You have all experienced today’s socialized medical trends firsthand as providers. Describe your experiences and how they helped you to envision a new future for your patients at Gallian Medical Group. 

Scott: In the outpatient setting, we felt as if our employers were dictating the level of care and not the patient in consultation with their physician. At Gallian Medical Group, we put the focus back on the patient and provide them with the time needed to fully describe their symptoms and to treat them. We don’t lock our patients into 15 minute blocks of time.

MV: How have your patients responded to the level of care they receive at Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: They thoroughly enjoy it. They don’t like being rushed or ignored. I think most of our new patients are surprised at our more measured approach to healthcare. Accustomed as they are to the assembly line medical treatments they experience elsewhere, they are often surprised to discover that we take the time to really listen to them. They genuinely appreciate the fact that we desire to have a meaningful provider/patient relationship with them. Patients who wish to be more proactive in achieving their optimum level of health really enjoy their new provider/patient relationships. 

MV: I guess another indication of your success is the fact that your are currently expanding your medical facility to meet the needs of your growing group of patients. Tell us about your expansion plans.

Scott: We’re grateful to our growing number of new patients, for their trust in us and their support and encouragement. To meet this growing patient base and the additional providers, we are currently expanding our medical facility. We are adding 1,500 additional square feet of exam rooms, provider offices, and nurse work centers. Our new addition is scheduled to be complete in October.

MV: Gina, as the newest addition to the Gallian Medical Group healthcare team, tell our readers a little bit about yourself.

Gina: My family moved to Tennessee from Michigan when I was eight. I attended nursing school at Tennessee State University and earned my master’s degree from Vanderbilt University. I have worked as an ICU nurse and have 20 years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner, with a decade of that practicing in Endocrinology.

MV: What most influenced your decision to join the Gallian Medical Group team?

Gina: Like the entire team at Gallian, I practice evidence-based medicine and feel passionate about treating the patient as a whole – truly listening to them and getting to the root of their problem. Like my fellow team members, I am extremely thorough and detailed in my management and want the patient to feel comfortable and confident in their care, but, most importantly, I want to show compassion to each patient. I look forward to making a valuable contribution to Gallian Medical Group and their family of patients throughout our East Tennessee community. 

MV: What services do you provide at Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: We provide evidence-based primary care for patients age 12 and up. We have our own lab and X-ray machine. We also perform EKGs and spirometry services. We offer preventative care and immunizations, chronic disease management, hypertension management, nutrition and wellness management, diabetes management, physicals, and a variety of other services. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 7 am to 6 pm. Same-day appointments are available. We also offer Telemedicine for your convenience.

MV: Because you’re a private practice medical practice facility, in what other ways do your patients benefit?

Scott: Choice is clearly an important way in which our patients benefit. If they need a service we can’t provide, then they are free to go wherever they like. They can choose any specialist, any hospital, any other ancillary service they want – not just the ones under a certain corporate umbrella. Patients also want a provider they can stay with for life, not someone that will move on after the provider’s contract expires or if the corporate employer makes decisions affecting the doctor-patient relationship. Patients want their provider, not a replacement or substitute. We plan on being here for many years to come. 

MV: Unlike other area healthcare providers that experience high staff turnover, your team has been with you for a number of years. How important is this to your patients?

Lauren: Extremely important. Our staff is a big reason for our success. We feel the patients’ relationship with our staff is as important as the patients’ relationship with us. Our staff is like family to us.

MV: What is a typical patient wait time?

Lauren: Most of the time less than 15 minutes. Rarely more than 30 minutes. 

MV: You appear to attract a great many Medicare patients. Why is that?

Scott: Medicare patients are a special population. They generally have more healthcare needs and have higher expectations than other groups of patients. They usually are more in tune with their health than a younger person and more self-educated about their health. We want them to know we’re here to meet their expectations and provide the quality care they deserve in order to achieve their optimal level of health and well-being.

MV: What other types of insurance do you accept?

Scott: Almost all commercial insurances, Medicare, and Medicare Advantage plans. We don’t discriminate based on a patient’s insurance status.

MV: How can people learn more about Gallian Medical Group?

Lauren: Our website is www.gallianmedical.com. We also encourage people to visit our Facebook page.

MV: In closing, is there anything else you would like to add?

Scott: We want your readers to know that we will go the extra mile to ensure they have a truly wonderful healthcare experience, the type of experience they might have thought no longer existed in today’s steeple-chase medical marketplace.
