The whole truth and nothing but the truth about my husband, his parents, and me - That Woman.

In which the accountant gives advice to Primo that will make Ted absolutely furious and I think, "Oh well"
I had a good meeting with the accountant. He had a lot of useful advice (e.g., I should not create the individual trust accounts for the kids until after January 1, because if they exist before the end of the year tax returns will be required).
Ah - excellent!
He did not think it was nice of my parents to prohibit the trustee (related by blood or marriage) from receiving compensation. He said that I should have The Lawyer check on that provision again (to see if it is overridden by Florida law).
The meeting did not cost anything. (The guy was trying to earn my business for what will be multiple Florida trusts.)
I don't think it was nice, either.
Do you like the guy? Do you trust him?
I think so. My parents have been using this firm, and so has Jack. They also did the taxes for the restaurant business (which I don't have to worry about because it ended several years ago).
He said that I can throw out all of the documents from 2011 and prior years.
(Well, he advised me to shred them.)
before you leave FL!
But I don't have time to run everything through this little shredder. I don't know where to take stuff for shredding. At this point I will put stuff into a box or basket.
I've probably already put out some things for recycling that should have been shredded.
please don't bring it home
I wouldn't do that.
But the 2012-2014 documents will have to go home with me eventually.
Then we can get rid of one year's worth of documents each year.
Two weeks before our wedding, my husband's parents called to tell him 1. they weren't coming and 2. he shouldn't marry me. Since then, I have gotten along with them about as well as you might think. PS They died hating me and disinherited my husband. PPS None of this is made up. None of it.
And now, Primo is running for state-level public office. And - it's not fun. For either of us.
