Funding Revocable Living Trusts, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Funding Revocable Living Trusts, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

Without much doubt, the transfer of assets to the trust is the most critical part of the formation of a revocable living trust. Inasmuch as all of the grantor's property should be conveyed to the trust, the obvious question is whether the transfer triggers adverse consequences to the grantor. In general, conveyance of property to a revocable inter vivos trust can be accomplished without negative consequences but the property inventory should be subjected to an itemby- item review before the actual transfer occurs. Here are the major points to consider.


Forgiving Principal In A Purchase Price Reduction, Neil E. Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Forgiving Principal In A Purchase Price Reduction, Neil E. Harl

Neil E. Harl

For purchasers of property unable to make payments as required by the obligation, a purchase price reduction may be a possible solution. If the debt of an original purchaser of property is reduced by the original seller of the property, the adjustment is treated as a purchase price adjustment and not as a discharge of indebtedness if the debtor is solvent.


Avoiding Self-Employment Tax, Neil Harl 2017 Iowa State University

Avoiding Self-Employment Tax, Neil Harl

Neil E. Harl

Two recent private letter rulings issued about a month apart in late 1991 have provided additional guidance on the IRS national office position on two of the strategies used to avoid self-employment tax. In both rulings, the IRS position was adverse to the taxpayers.

Claiming Motor Vehicle Deductions, Neil Harl

Neil E. Harl

A taxpayer may, on a yearly basis, deduct an amount equal to either (1) the business standard mileage rate (at 28 cents per mile for all business miles for 1992) times the number of business miles traveled or (2) the actual costs (both operating and fixed) paid or incurred by the taxpayer allocable to business miles.

Real Deal Or No Deal? A Comparative Analysis Of Raw Milk Cheese Regulation In Australia And France, William van Caenegem, Madeline Taylor 2017 Bond University

Real Deal Or No Deal? A Comparative Analysis Of Raw Milk Cheese Regulation In Australia And France, William Van Caenegem, Madeline Taylor

Law Faculty Publications

Australia’s regulatory framework has resulted in the standardisation of cheese production based on pasteurisation. Up until early 2015, regulations effectively prohibited raw milk cheese-making in Australia and thus stifled artisanal on-farm production. Although the introduction of Food Standards Australia New Zealand Standard 4.2.4 has allowed the production of certain hard, low-moisture raw milk cheeses, the new standard is rigid and does not encourage new entrants into the emerging raw milk cheese consumer market. This article compares the Australian system with the French raw milk cheese regulation and production system, and argues that its approach in encouraging and ...

An Ghaoth A Chriofidh An Eorna: The Moral Economy Of Ireland's Whiteboys, 1761-1787., Connor Bartlett McDermott 2017 Bard College

An Ghaoth A Chriofidh An Eorna: The Moral Economy Of Ireland's Whiteboys, 1761-1787., Connor Bartlett Mcdermott

Senior Projects Spring 2017

In 1761, the peasantry of Ireland rose in insurrection against enclosure and tithes. The initial wave of protesters were known as 'Whiteboys,' and their insurrection came to be a model for subsequent Irish agrarian redresser movements throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Applying E.P. Thompson’s theory of moral economy to the practice of Whiteboyism reveals the sophisticated motives which lay behind the Whiteboy’s 18th century protests against enclosure, tithes, and middlemen in rural Ireland. Senior Project submitted to The Division of Social Studies of Bard College.

Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Farming And Eating, Margot J. Pollans

Pace Law Faculty Publications

This essay argues that the “us versus them” rhetoric that dominates food and agriculture policy today drives a wedge between farmers and food consumers. Together, farmers and food consumers could form a powerful coalition to challenge the true obstacle to sustainable and equitable food production: concentration of market and political power elsewhere along the food chain.

Assessing The Relative Influence And Efficacy Of Public And Private Food Safety Regulation Regimes: Comparing Codex And Global Gap Standards, Sam Halabi, Ching-Fu Lin

Sam Halabi

An extensive global system of private food regulation is under construction, one
that exceeds conventional regulation thought of as being driven by public authorities
like FDA and USDA in the U.S. or the Food Standards Agency in the UK. Agrifood
and grocer organizations, in concert with some farming groups, have been the primary
designers of this new food regulatory regime. These groups have established alliances
that compete with national regulators in complex ways. This article analyzes the
relationship between public and private sources of food safety regulation by
examining standards adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a food safety ...
