Congratulations to Phil Multop CPA, CFP®

On September 17th, 2009; Pacific West Securities, Inc. honored Phil Multop with its highest achievement award, The Pinnacle Award for outstanding success in the areas of leadership and production. Phil was one of 5 individuals out of a group of over 400 financial advisors to be recognized for this award. Congratulations Phil.

Phil and the Multop Financial planning staff also attended the 4-day Leadership Summit conference in Bellevue, WA last month which was hosted by Pacific West Securities, Inc.

We look forward to sharing with our clients some of the insights, updates and valuable information obtained as a result of our attendance at this conference.


Financial Tip

With the extension deadline approaching for individuals, partnerships, and trusts (October 15th), business owners have a chance to turn some bureaucratic requirements into a planning opportunity for the rest of 2009.  The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 allows companies still on extension to carry back net operating losses in 2008 five years instead of the usual two years.  The act also expanded Sec. 179 deductions, which allows businesses to deduct up-front rather than depreciate the cost of equipment such as computers, furniture, manufacturing machines and vehicles, up to $250,000.  Another benefit is the bonus depreciation measure that increases the portion of the purchase price that can be deducted for the first year.  If you have any questions about what the new tax codes and extensions mean to you or your business, contact Multop Financial and let our experienced team of CFP’s & CPA’s help guide you through this complicated area. info@multop.com

Financial Reminder

Attention business owners: The end of 2009 is fast approaching!! Now is the time to review your year-end tax situation and make sure you are not giving up more of your hard earned money to the IRS. There are a myriad of tax deductible options business owners have available for their money.  Whether it’s through purchase of equipment or employee benefit/retirement plans, business owners often make the mistake of closing out their books for the year before they realize additional deductible options.  If you’d like to have us review your current situation for 2009 please call today.

We recently received a letter from our 2009 scholarship winner, Kelley Gregory. She is working towards her Registered Nurse (RN) degree while working as a student intern at the U.S. Department of Justice.

Kelley then plans on attending the University of Washington to complete her Bachelor’s of Nursing, with aspirations of becoming a Nurse Practitioner. Kelley was thankful for the support and wrote that the scholarship “has enabled me to give appropriate time to my studies so that I can achieve the high grades I need for the future.”
