Avoid Being Scammed Like Real Housewife Heather Dubrow

When I set out to make a career out of my writing a few months ago, I would never have considered that I would be published by Forbes. I mean, Forbes is FORBES.  A household name. The creme de la creme. And yet, here I am. I December, I became a Forbes contributor.

For my first post, I had the rare opportunity to write about two of my passions: accounting and Real Housewives. I mean, life is good.

Donating Artwork

I recently had the opportunity to attend a lecture on Art & Legacy Planning at the Phoenix Art Museum and heard a talk by Susan L. Brundage, Director of Appraisal Services at Art Dealers Association of America. She shared a lot of great information on maintaining documentation for artwork, getting artwork appraised, and the tax implications of donating artwork.


Today you can find me here with a reminder of how important it is to maintain good documentation when donating works of art.
