ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenWith the end of the year fast approaching, it’s time to think about deductions!

Are you self-employed?

Last month, we covered three categories of business deductions for self-employed persons: auto expenses, meals and entertainment and travel: www.pamplinmedia.com/ttt-insiders/330640-210507-self-employed-document-those-deductions

This time, let’s look at deductions for having an office in your home.

An office in your home MUST be used regularly and exclusively for business. The deduction, Safe Harbor, requires measuring the square feet of the office portion against the total square foot of the home.

Indirect expenses such as rent, utilities, insurance, deductible mortgage interest, and property tax can be deducted at the business-use percentage rate.

The Safe Harbor deduction calculation is $5 per square foot of office space, limit 300 square feet. This usually isn’t as much as the actual costs, but it does save some taxpayer time in gathering the information.

As far as deductions for your personal taxes, don’t forget to clean out your closets, attic and basement of items you no longer use.

Keep a list of what was given with Fair Market Value. Make sure it is an approved charitable organization. Keep each receipt of donation and list for us to review.

Oregon Department of Justice is not allowing charitable deductions to organizations which haven’t fulfilled their charitable goals. To find your desired charity, check justice.oregon.gov/Charities

Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at AccounTax!

BEEBE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Daniel Beebe“At this clinic, we measure – we don’t guess,” says Dr. Daniel Beebe, of Beebe Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Tigard.

Prior to treatment, for example, patients receive a thermal scan and an electrical scan (also called surface EMG) to see if muscles are pulling and which way they’re going, says Beebe. “The scans can tell us how to proceed with treatment. Later, we can rescan to see if you’re improving and if not, make adjustments to the treatment.”

Though the equipment for the scans is available to any practitioner, “it’s expensive and it takes experience to use it,” says Beebe.

Beebe also does a complete blood-chemistry panel.

“Here in the Northwest, we see a lot of low Vitamin D, anemia, liver problems and heart problems,” says Beebe. “It’s just a real good screen for general body conditions.”

“Patients may come in and say ‘I’m really fatigued all the time.’ We’ve even seen cases where they were bleeding internally, but just didn’t know. Others will come in with an autoimmune condition, such as Hashimoto’s Disease.”

“I test for gluten and other sensitivities. With people who have gluten sensitivities, it can affect a woman’s thyroid — which is a surprise to many.”

Women with gluten sensitivities suffer thyroid problems as a ratio of 23 to 1 compared to men.

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING RIVERWOOD - Kara TobeySometimes, when a far-flung family comes together for the holidays, they may discover that an elderly loved one is having difficulty functioning well at home.

Here are some signs to look for:

Altered eating habits. Forgetting to eat or losing interest in food altogether are both signs of poor health. Alternatively, seniors with memory issues can overeat or repeat meals. A kitchen stocked with spoiled, half-eaten or expired food suggests a senior who can no longer manage alone.

Antisocial behavior. Losing interest in friends, withdrawing from social situations or neglecting a previously cherished hobby may indicate depression, memory loss or a decline in cognitive abilities.

Worsening finances. A senior who forgets to pay bills (or pays them multiple times) may need help managing their household finances. Look for unwanted magazine subscriptions or donation solicitations that can easily drain a bank account.

Poor personal hygiene. Many seniors feel uncomfortable asking for help with personal hygiene. Bad odors, a disheveled appearance or indications of skipped showers and baths all suggest that a senior can no longer perform daily grooming tasks unaided.

Decline in safety. For a senior, a fall in the shower (and the subsequent hospitalization) can be a life-threatening injury. A senior who leaves the stove on or forgets how often to take their medication may need daily help.

While the family’s in town, be proactive. Don’t wait until the situation becomes an emergency.

Call us to arrange a tour. We’ll be glad to show you what makes Prestige Senior Living Riverwood special.

COMFORCARE - Marissa PhillipsSeniors who have difficulty with such tasks as daily living, self-care and medication management may need a little help – or a lot.

Employing a home care agency is a great choice because it’s easily adjusted to meet a client’s needs.

A licensed home care agency such as ComForCare hires employees, not independent contractors. We do background and reference checks, training and continuing education.

Following an assessment of client needs, our employees provide needed services from a long menu, including medication, safety supervision, light housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation, bathing and dressing, incontinence care, transportation and companionship. Caregivers are trained to care for those with dementia.

Home care is generally less expensive than other care options. Nursing home costs may range from about $200-$250 each day for a basic room and care, adding up to about $5,600 to $7,000 a month. Assisted living facilities may cost about $3,300 per month for a one-bedroom unit.

Home care costs can vary considerably depending on the intensity of the client’s needs, but usually remain considerably lower than these options. 

While in-home elder care is a significant investment, there are several payment options and funding sources that can help ease the financial burden. We can connect you with resources and programs which may help you.

Together, we can come up with a plan of care and hours that are not only affordable but ensures that your loved one receives the best home care possible!

WOODLAND HEIGHTS ASSISTED LIVING RESIDENCE - Linda ElderIn unsettling times, we can lose focus. No matter what we want or need and often do not get, we have the power to control our own thoughts and positive directions.

At Woodland Heights, we have many positive things for which to be thankful.

We have the opportunity to work in a great industry, which is a business, but for us, it’s a calling. It’s not just a job, but a fulfilling choice where we can go home at night feeling good about the people we were able to help today and not begrudge another workday tomorrow.

We are grateful for our owners, who had the vision to build this special place; grateful that they have chosen to focus their energy on only this one building; grateful that they always support our goal of providing the best care possible.

We are grateful for each other, as no day is the same and the one guarantee is change and surprises. Our team always pulls together to adapt, help each other and help our residents. The words “It’s not my job” are never heard here.

We are grateful for the wonderful families we are blessed to work with, while finding solutions together to meet the changing needs of our residents.

We are grateful, mostly, for our residents, grateful that they chose to place their trust in us; grateful each time they share with us about their desires and ideas and lives. Each one is a very special person.

SPECIALTY HEATING & COOLING - Norm MatheisThe winter holidays are no time to have your furnace go kerflooey.

The Norman Rockwell ideal, with the smiling family gathering around the turkey to give thanks, becomes a feast of frowns when the heat goes off.

Depend on Specialty Heating and Cooling to keep you and your guests comfortable and the holidays festive.

Your HVAC system should have annual maintenance. This is a great investment and should be done at the turn of fall or winter. Maintenance appointments will help identify any potential problem areas that may be unseen that could lead to expensive repairs later down the road.

And of course, call us at the first sign of trouble so that we can service your system.

Meanwhile, what can you do?

Make sure your filters are clean. Clogged filters can disrupt the flow of air to your home. Not only that, dirty filters can trip safety switches inside the furnace. Check your filters regularly and replace them as needed.

Don’t ignore unusual sounds. If you’ve noticed some strange sounds coming out of your system recently, or if the system doesn’t seem to be acting right, don’t ignore these signs any longer. Unusual sounds can be a sign that a part replacement or repair is needed. If you’re not sure, our team of experienced technicians can help accurately diagnose the problem and make sure that the system is fixed so you’re comfortable.

Our team is here to help make sure your holidays are warm and happy. Give us a call at 503-946-6396.

ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenIn the tax world, the burden of proof is on the taxpayer, not the tax agency.

This means that if an agency such as the Internal Revenue Service or Oregon Department of Revenue asks for more information about a taxpayer deduction, the taxpayer must prove with documentation that the deduction exists and why.

The most commonly questioned deductions for individuals are for the self-employed, including auto expenses, meals and entertainment and travel.

Mileage logs for auto expense must be kept on a regular current schedule. The business miles, divided by the total overall miles for the year, equals the business use percentage. This is multiplied by the actual costs to get the business use deduction of the vehicle. Even if the taxpayer is claiming standard business miles using the current rate, the log must be kept and should contain the date, business reason for the trip, and miles for the trip.

Meals and Entertainment must be documented with the original receipt of whom the taxpayer talked to and about what. These can be re-created, but use of a charge card statement by itself is not adequate proof. A daily schedule or appointment book could be used as a log with the receipts.

Travel is the cost of getting to a business location outside the usual tax home. It is the fare to get there, and the cost of staying there while on business.

Don’t forget to save those receipts and notes!

In next month’s column, we’ll review “office in home” deductions.

COMFORCARE HOME CARE - Marissa PhillipsMarissa Phillips, owner of ComForCare Home Care in Tigard, says there are misperceptions about what constitutes hospice care.

Hospice care need not take place in a hospice center, but can be done at home, allowing a patient the familiarity and comfort at the end of life.

Led by a nurse, the care is OK’d by a doctor who feels the patient is failing and has about 6 months left. A hospice agency provides RN visits, a bath aide, a social worker, a chaplain, medication and help with equipment.

“People tend to think that it’s for those who are actively dying, but we’ve had some people who’ve been on hospice care for years – on and off,” Phillips noted. “They start to fail, get better, then go through a downturn again.”

“Caregiving is what we do, hands-on,” says Phillips. “With our licensing, we can do it all, right at home. In the beginning, they may need help with cooking, using the shower or the toilet. As they progress, they may need additional pain medication, changing sheets — we can do it, 24 hours a day, up to the end of life.”

“We are the friendly face, day in and out,” she added.

“With the right in-home care team, the process can be comfortable, with care managed and the family side-by-side with their loved one.”

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - RIVERWOOD - Kara TobeyHere at Prestige Care Riverwood, our staff is keenly aware of the importance of keeping our residents healthy and strong.

If we notice one of our residents has a decrease in function, a doctor’s referral may be required. If the doctor recommends physical therapy, a home health agency of the resident’s choosing will come to our facility to work with the patient to regain normal function.

Such treatment is usually covered by Medicare Part B.

October is National Physical Therapy Month, an appropriate time to consider the benefits of physical therapy.

Prescription opioids to control pain have become a huge problem in the United States, with abuse and addiction growing to epidemic proportions.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more people died from drug overdoses in 2014 than any other previous year, and at least half involved a prescription opioid. As many as one in four people using prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain struggles with addiction.

 

In March, the CDC released guidelines for prescribing opioids for chronic pain. The CDC made it clear that non-pharmacologic alternatives to prescription opioids, such as physical therapy, are the preferred option for treating chronic pain.

 

At Prestige Care, having a physical therapist come to our location makes it more likely that treatment will take place, on schedule, and help the resident get back to enjoying activities quickly.

Pacific Medical Group, TigardNovember is American Diabetes Month – a time to learn more about diabetes risk factors, schedule a checkup with a health care provider and make healthy changes to your life.

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States.

It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it’s not controlled.

One in 11 Americans has diabetes – more than 29 million people. And another 86 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The good news? People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes. These changes include: eating healthy, increasing physical activity and losing weight.

At Pacific Medical Group, diabetes is a focus at all of our practices.

If a patient has high risk factors for diabetes, symptoms that may suggest diabetes, or is just found to have high random blood sugar levels, tests may be done to confirm diabetes and assess severity. These may include fasting glucose, hemoglobin and oral glucose tolerance tests.

Diabetes is a serious disorder with serious consequences – but it is manageable. With good medical care and self-care, people with diabetes can lead healthy lives for years.

To learn more about diabetes risk factors, diagnosis and treatment at Pacific Medical Group, visit www.pacificmedicalgroup.com/health-info/medical-conditions/diabetes.

Then schedule a checkup with us. We’ll help you build a roadmap to better health.

CRESCENT GROVE CEMETERY - Nancy FeltonOn Nov. 11 each year, we pause to celebrate and to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Some may wonder, why that day?

Ninety-eight years ago, on Nov. 11, 1918, an armistice – or temporary cessation of hostilities – was declared between Germany and the Allied nations who fought in “The Great War,” later known as World War I. The war didn’t officially end until the Treaty of Versailles was signed June 19, 1919, but Nov. 11 was generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory."

In 1954, following World War II -- which had required the greatest mobilization of military forces in the nation’s history -- and the Korean War (1950-53), Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day to honor American veterans of all wars.

Though the founding of our veterans observance is nearly a century old, it continues to resonate today. Those who served, fought, were wounded or died for our country deserve our deep and everlasting respect. And to those who continue to protect us, thank you.

WOODLAND HEIGHTS ASSISTED LIVING RESIDENCE - Linda ElderThe leaves have turned to red and gold and the rains that keep our summer gardens green have returned. Soon we will be busy with family dinners and gatherings, gifts and baking and making new memories. Our spare time will be rare.

Let’s remember our endeared seniors and set aside some time for them.

When was the last time their vision and hearing were checked or glasses replaced? Is it time to visit the podiatrist or the dentist? Are there home repairs that have been put off? How about a soothing pedicure treatment?

When visiting your older loved one, take stock and have a talk about how he or she is managing at home.

Is keeping up a household getting harder and less enjoyable? Is a trip to the grocery store a major undertaking? Is it difficult to make appointments because of transportation concerns or reluctance to inconvenience to “bother” a friend or relative?

For seniors, this may be a time to explore changes to make day-to-day living easier. A time to have meals cooked, no dishes to wash or groceries to buy. A time to let someone else do the housework and raking -- and instead, enjoy watching the leaves float to the ground.

Maybe this is a good time to “turn over a new leaf” and consider the advantages of assisted living. We can help.
