Common Questions: Hungry Cats

Unexpected things happen all the time and life can get complicated pretty quickly.  Luckily, we’re here to answer questions about common legal and financial situations you may find yourself in.

Q. A neighbor’s cat wandered onto my property and ate our bunny.  Can I sue my neighbor?

A.  Sure you can and they would have to pay you.   Call them and ask for their insurance company.  Most homeowners insurance covers things like this.  If it doesn’t, and they do not pay you, sue them.  Probably small claims would handle this unless it was a “special” prize bunny, and then if it was, the neighbor might say you should have had the bunny in your office or protected.    If your bunny was loose, you might be partially or even wholly to blame.

Simplify taxes next year by organizing your finances now!

In the past, when tax time came around every year, I promised myself I would make it easier next year by keeping better records.  Fast forward to the next year, and guess what?  All those good intentions went someplace…..I don’t know where.   What I realized much  later was the fact that I lacked a systematic way to track my expenses.   I found some useful tools that have helped me organize my finances and manage my spending.  This has saved me a great deal of time in the day-to-day money management, which translates into less time spent gathering information for tax filing.   But the extra benefit has been finding some deductible expenses that I otherwise would have forgotten, and that has reduced my taxes!  The lesson is to start now, while the tax return experience is fresh in your mind.  Send us an e-mail for some useful tips, and be sure to come to our next “Live at the Library” on May 23rd, where we’ll have lots to share about organizing your finances, time and more!
