Charitable Trust Documents
Question: What do you think of Helmsley leaving around 5 billion dollars to canine charities? Her only good deed in life
Sure, the hotelier and real estate magnate Leona Helmsley left $12 million in her will to her dog, Trouble. But that, it turns out, is nothing much compared with what other dogs may receive from the charitable trust of Mrs. Helmsley, who died last August.
Her instructions, specified in a two-page “mission statement,” are that the entire trust, valued at $5 billion to $8 billion and amounting to virtually all her estate, be used for the care and welfare of dogs, according to two people who have seen the document and who described it on condition of anonymity.
It is by no means clear, however, that all the money will go to dogs. Another provision of the mission statement says Mrs. Helmsley’s trustees may use their discretion in distributing the money, and some lawyers say the statement may not mean much
Answer: Gives a whole new meaning to "gone to the dogs".I say good for her,her only good deed in life proved to be her best.

Tax Planning Companies
Question: Is it better to invest in your companies 401K plan with pre-tax or post-tax dollars?
Answer: Pre-tax for sure, and even then, only if the company matches it. With post tax dollars, unless they're matched, there's pretty much no reason to invest in your company's 401k plan.
With a little education, you don't have to use your company's plan. You can put it into a self directed IRA (with pretax dollars) and do at least as well as your company's 401K yourself!
The reason is that with a self directed IRA, you can still invest in anything the company's 401K allows, but w/o restricting yourself to just those funds. Additionally, you can invest in ETFs, stocks, and a whole bunch of other instruments that you can't typically with a company plan.
Back to pre vs post tax. Use pretax for the company plan because your monies will grow until retirement and then be taxed, plus most require you to use pretax dollars in order to be matched.
However, (as a sidenote), with your first few dollars, opening a ROTH IRA with post tax monies is a great tax advantage because those monies grow and grow and you keep all of it.
Sorry for the long answer, but hope it helps!
