Money. A medium of exchange. And it all started with coconuts and bananas. Someone needed coconuts, someone else needed bananas, voila, they had a deal. Goods and services were swapped at an agreed upon value as the first form of money in society. Fast forward 11,000 years (plus or minus a few) and we now have paper money, credit cards, Venmo, Paypal, and even digital and programmable money. Sacks of coconuts? No longer required.
The CFP Board, the governing body for CFP® Professionals, recently announced that it is updating its Principle Knowledge Topics (more on this below) to include the Psychology of Financial Planning. At Facet Wealth, we applaud the CFP Board for its continued efforts to elevate the standard of advice in the industry.
The IRS recently announced that the due date for filing your 2020 tax return has been moved from April 15 to May 17, 2021. If you’re suddenly feeling a sense of deja vu, it’s justified: last year the IRS moved the deadline for filing your 2019 tax return from the normal April 15 to July 15.
