At Yoder & Company Our Focus is on the Individual

 

Individuals representing themselves and their family are involved in a variety of roles, responsibilities and interests. Their specific circumstances dictate the kind of services they require from Yoder & Company.

 

Individuals and families are responsible for planning and managing their finances and complying with tax and reporting responsibilities. Parents or guardians represent the interests and goals of children which include education planning such as 529 plans. Handicapped family members may require planning for their special needs when the parent is no longer available. Adult sons and daughters may be responsible for the physical care or financial decisions of elderly parents.

 

Certain life events are experienced by almost everyone at some point in their life. Consult with your CPA and visit our "Resources" web pages for financial guides and tax tips if you are considering issues related to: getting married or divorced; death of a loved one, buying a new car or donating a vehicle to charity; making a charitable contribution or a gift; buying or selling your home; obtaining a student loan; saving for college; starting, expanding, transferring or selling a business; investing in a business; estate planning; or receiving a financial windfall.

Older adults and seniors may be planning for retirement or long-term health care needs, taking distributions from retirement plans, determining when to gift a portion of their estate, deciding on when to take Social Security, and considering Medicare and supplementary insurance issues.

As charitable citizens, they may contribute to various nonprofit entities such as charities and political, religious or other causes.
