Weekend Wedding Inspiration: Autumn Color Palette

With a crisp autumn chill in the air today in Albuquerque, we thought it would be a good idea for this weekend’s wedding inspiration to be about incorporating warm fall colors into your late summer or early fall wedding. This real New Mexican bride with her bouquet of cheerful sunflowers and bridesmaids in rich chocolate brown dresses just may make you rethink having a June wedding.

What Weddings Mean For Your Taxes

With the end of the year fast approaching, we found this great article written by Montgomery Dillavou, CPA on www.montgomerydillavou.com

Weddings Mean Tax Changes

It may not be as high on the wedding plan checklist as the venue, invitations and attire, but there are important tax issues created by a marriage that warrant some prompt attention following the wedding.

Name change. Anytime names are changed, it should be reported to the Social Security Administration (SSA). The name associated with an individual’s Social Security Number (SSN) should match the name on the tax return. To change a name with the SSA, file Form SS-5, “Application for a Social Security Card.” The form is available from www.ssa.gov, by calling (800) 772-1213, or from the local SSA office.

Address change. Let the IRS know about an address change by filing Form 8822, “Change of Address.” Also notify the U.S. Postal Service at www.usps.com to forward mail. You may also report the change at your local post office.

Change tax withholding. A change in marital status requires that a new Form W-4, “Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate,” be furnished to the employer(s). Combined incomes may move the taxpayers into a higher tax bracket. Search www.irs.gov for the IRS Withholding Calculator tool for help completing the new Form W-4.

Change in filing status. Marital status is determined as of December 31 each year. Spouses can choose to file jointly or separately each year. We can help you make that determination by calculating your tax liability both ways.

Change in circumstances. Taxpayers receiving an advance payment of the health care premiumtax credit in 2014 should report changes in circumstances, such as a change in income or family size, to the Health Insurance Marketplace. Also, the Marketplace should be notified when you move out of the area covered by your current Marketplace to ensure you get the proper type and amount of financial assistance.

Wedding Spotlight: Alena and Jeffrey Bard

What spectacular details do real wedding planners create for themselves when it is their turn to walk down the aisle?

Now we know. Albuquerque Wedding and Event Planner and Coordinator Alena Swanson got married in August and we are featuring her wedding in our Wedding Spotlight for our Winter Issue of The Perfect Wedding Guide!

Here are the details that Alena shared with us about her big day:

“Jeff and I wanted to create our theme from memories and previous milestones. Our first date was over Starbucks, so we served Pike’s and placed a personalized Starbucks cup at every seat with a thank you note telling our love story. We fell in love under the stars, so we chose the night sky ombre colors: navy and silver under a clear tent. Our guests now describe the night as mystical, like a fairy tale.” -Alena Swanson
