Storing Your Power of Attorney in a Safety Deposit Box

Storing your estate documents, such as a Power of Attorney, in
a secure place is extremely important. Some of us assume that one of the safest
places to store our documents, in particular our Power of Attorney, is at a
bank in a safety deposit box.

However, because a Power of Attorney is a document people
use to allow a trusted friend to make decisions when they are unable to,
storing your document (or at least your only copy) with a bank is often not
recommended.

In this post, discover a couple of reasons why you shouldn’t store your Power of Attorney in a safety deposit box and what you should do instead.

What is a POA?

A Power of Attorney, sometimes called a POA, lets you provide someone else (like a friend or family member) with the authority to make important decisions (such as financial or business decisions) for you when you’re unable to. If you’re creating a Power of Attorney, then you’re the principal and whoever you appoint to make your decisions is your attorney-in-fact, sometimes called an agent.

A person can have an Ordinary Power of Attorney, meaning the
principal is still capable of making their own decisions but can’t for reasons
such as long-term travel, or an Enduring Power of Attorney, meaning the
principal is unable to make their own decisions for reasons like they’ve become
incapacitated due to an illness or disability.

To use a POA, an attorney-in-fact often needs to have the original
document that was created and signed by the principal, which is why where it is
stored is so important and why you should avoid storing it in a safety deposit
box.

Be Sure You Can Access Your POA When You Need It

Keeping your original Power of Attorney in a safety deposit box might mean it’s not able to be accessed when it’s needed most.

Imagine a friend creates an Enduring Power of Attorney and appoints
you as the attorney-in-fact. Your friend then places their original POA in
their safety deposit box and doesn’t create any certified copies to place
anywhere else. Often, deposit boxes can only be opened during banking hours,
which means you’ll be unable to access it after hours, on weekends, or on
holidays.

If something were to happen, like a car accident that
results in your friend being incapacitated, and the Enduring Power of Attorney is
in a deposit box, you may not be able to obtain the Power of Attorney to make important,
possibly time-sensitive decisions, such as authorizing payment for medical
bills or providing funds to help family members fly to see their loved one.

Be Sure You Don’t Need a POA to Access One

Similarly, a Power of Attorney is often required by banks to
allow someone like an attorney-in-fact to open a person’s safety deposit box.
So, without one, you may be unable to access the document and start your duties
as an attorney-in-fact.

In this situation, it is easy to see how big of a problem it
would be if the very document you need to enter the deposit box is inside it.

Where Should You Store Your POA?

Although a deposit box is a great place to store important
documents, it is not a good place to store your only POA. That said, it can
still be used to store a copy of your document as long as another copy is
available elsewhere in case the bank or deposit box is inaccessible when you
need access. You can also store your POA with someone you trust, like your
lawyer, accountant, or attorney-in-fact or even in a safe in your home.

Wherever you decide to store your document, ensure that your
attorney-in-fact will be able to access the document when it’s needed.

Storing Your Power of Attorney

A person should put a lot of thought about where they store
important estate documents such as a Power of Attorney. You might think a
safety deposit box at a bank is a great place to store your POA, but it might
not be accessible by your attorney-in-fact when it is needed the most.

Therefore, it’s better to store multiple copies of your
document in a few places or store it with a trusted person or in a safe
location in your home.

Franklin Attorney: $3 Million In Back Taxes Paid To IRS

(Photo by AP)

DETROIT (AP) — Aretha Franklin‘s estate has paid at least $ 3 million in back taxes to the IRS since her death in August, an attorney for the late Queen of Soul’s estate said Thursday.

The estate is being audited by the IRS, which filed a claim this month in a county probate court north of Detroit, David Bennett told The Associated Press.

Earlier Thursday, TMZ reported that legal documents it obtained showed the IRS claimed the singer owes more than $ 6.3 million in back taxes from 2012 to 2018 and $ 1.5 million in penalties.

“We have a tax attorney. All of her returns have been filed,” Bennett told the AP. “We have disputes with the IRS regarding what they claim was income. We claim its double-dipping income because they don’t understand how the business works.”

He added that Franklin had a lot of expenses whenever she toured.

“She had to pay for transportation, hotel rooms, backup singers, musicians. When she did that the IRS was questioning the returns she filed,” Bennett said. “We’re going through audits. Returns were filed as timely as we could get them filed.”

Franklin died of pancreatic cancer in August in her Detroit apartment. She was 76.

At the time of her death, Franklin owned a home in Oakland County’s Bloomfield Township. The IRS filed the claim this month in Oakland County Probate Court in Pontiac.

Documents filed in an Oakland County court after Franklin’s death did not mention the value of her estate , which could run into the tens of millions.

Franklin’s estate also has paid money to the state of Michigan and other jurisdictions “where she would have had some income,” Bennett said.

Franklin had been the target of a number of lawsuits by creditors during the late 1980s and 1990s.

In 2008, the singer said an attorney’s mistake caused her $ 700,000 mansion in Detroit to slip into foreclosure over $ 445 in 2005 taxes and late fees. The Detroit Free Press reported then that Franklin owed a total of $ 19,192 in back taxes on the property through 2007.

Minnesota Attorney General sues Comcast for allegedly overcharging customers

Comcast lawsuit

We know this will come as a shock to many of you, but the cable giant Comcast has become synonymous among the general public with price hikes that squeeze customers for every extra cent available, and then some.

Indeed, the company has even been raising prices as much as it can at what you could argue is exactly the wrong time — a period when a growing number of customers are cutting the cord, saying goodbye to traditional pricey cable packages and going all-in on Internet-based TV. And now, along comes Minnesota’s attorney general, who on Friday filed a lawsuit against Comcast/Xfinity that lays a host of allegations at the company’s feet, like the notion that it’s overcharged thousands of customers for TV packages and even failed to come through on promised gift cards.

Letitia James First Black New York Attorney General is Coming For Trump’s Neck — And His Family

Michael Cohen won’t be the only Trump associate serving time in the pen for breaking the law if it’s up to Letitia James. The incoming New York Attorney General revealed that she plans to ignite a fire under President Donald Trump and anyone in his camp who may have engaged in illegal activity within her jurisdiction once she steps into her new role next month.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” she said in an exclusive interview with NBC News. James, who currently serves as New York City’s Public Advocate, became the first African American and the first woman to be elected as attorney general in New York, making her one of many African Americans who scored a historic win during the 2018 Midterm Election. “We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” she added.

The former New York City Councilwoman went on to outline the following probes she intends to pursue regarding the president’s namesake business, the Trump Organization, his campaign headquarters, and the Trump Tower — all of which are based in New York.

  • Any illegalities involving Trump’s real estate holdings in New York, highlighting the October New York Times investigation into the president’s finances.
  • The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian official.
  • Examine government subsidies Trump received, which were also the subjectof Times investigative work.
  • Whether he is in violation of the emoluments clause in the U.S. Constitution through his New York businesses.
  • Continue to probe the Trump Foundation.

James is also working on passing a bill that would change New York’s double jeopardy laws so that she could potentially indict someone who allegedly violates New York state law even if they are granted a presidential pardon over federal charges or convictions.

“I think within the first 100 days this bill will be passed,” she said, adding, “It is a priority because I have concerns with respect to the possibility that this administration might pardon some individuals who might face some criminal charges, but I do not want them to be immune from state charges.”

She added, “taking on President Trump and looking at all of the violations of law I think is no match to what I have seen in my lifetime.”

James is not the only black woman in office itching to light a fire under Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, who has led the charge to impeach Trump, is poised to take over the House Financial Services Committee, which would give her the power to subpoena the president. As chair of the powerful banking panel, Waters could target Deutsche Bank for its past dealings with Trump and issue subpoenas to Trump allies, like Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, forcing him to provide documentation regarding the president’s alleged ties to Russia.

Kamala Harris

Rep. Kamala Harris is another woman who could give Trump a run for his money should she decide to jump into the 2020 presidential race. She told The Hill that she intends to make a decision about whether to run for president in 2020 over the holidays, adding that it will “ultimately be a family decision.”
