Tax Reform: The Attempt to Incite Small Business Owners
No question that we need tax reform but what direction to take? This will be a very interesting question that will be addressed on both a federal level and state level over the next few months. Should we chase more business overseas with taxes? Currently, there is so much potential legislation that if enacted will be destructive to international business that it requires steeping back and really considering the ramifications.

Understanding What a STC is and What it is Not
Older Swiss Trust Companies (STCs) continue to n be in demand. With this demand has come more information on the internet which can be confusing and seemingly at times contradictory. It is after all the internet and anyone can post anything. The realities, however, of how an STC comes into existence and then becomes available for resale are not that complicated. We offer the following synopsis as a brief yet encompassing explanation. Click here to read more http://corb7.com/swiss-trust-companies/understanding-stc/
Privacy; a Necessity not a Luxury
The year was 1917 and the location was Latvia. A poor and mostly agrarian country in Northern Europe’s Baltic region bordered to the north by Estonia and to the south by Lithuania. My grandparents were children at the time. As the saying goes, “timing is everything,” and theirs could not have been much worse. The Bolshevik Revolution began in October of that year starting in Petrograd (now St. Petersburg). It was quickly followed by another civil war – later to be coined the Russian Revolution – and spread throughout the various countries doomed to become possessions of the Soviet Union. It would be bloody and last until 1922. My great-grandfather became a casualty when a local preacher turned him in as a dissident and he was shot. Having personally witnessed this event, my grandfather would flee to the United States, leaving behind a world and relatives he would never see again. He met a woman, also of Latvian heritage, and together they started a new life. Click here to read more http://corb7.com/blog/privacy-a-necessity-not-a-luxury/
