Q. Filing a single member LLC in PA as a CPA, are tax preparation services considered restricted professional services?
A: The term "public accounting" as defined in TItle 15 (Section 8996(d) is broader than auditing and advisory services. In fact it specifically lists preparation of tax returns in your capacity as a CPA.
Q. My father is in the hospital and not expected to survive. Someone is living on his property and I'll need them to leave.
A: There is no short answer to your question. Since your father does not have a Will and is divorced, you and your sibling are both eligible to petition to open an Estate and can act as Co-Administrators, or one of you can renounce the right to act as Administrator and the other can act alone. You will want to work with an attorney on this one since it is unlikely that the mobile home has much value, and if there are not other assets to protect there are several options for you and your sibling including abandonment of the mobile home or not even opening an Estate if there are no other assets to protect.
Q. My brother passed away no kids or wife. No will that we can find. There are four remaining siblings, who becomes the
A: Since there is no will, there will be an administrator appointed for the Estate. You do not state if both or either of your parents are still alive. If they are they will generally have the first right to serve as administrator. If both parents are deceased, you and your other siblings have equal opportunity to serve as administrator. If you would like to serve, and your siblings agree, then they can renounce their right to serve and you can file a petition to serve alone. If one or more your siblings would also like to serve, you can file a petition to serve jointly. If there is a dispute among the siblings then you can file a petition to serve, which they can contest and then there will be a hearing to decide the appointment. You really should meet with an experienced estate attorney to assist you in this process.
