What taxes might you pay on a wrongful death judgement?

If you have been through a wrongful death lawsuit in New Mexico, you may not even think about the tax implications. This is a common error. You may be focused on the death of your loved one and resolving the lawsuit. However, the IRS is always focused on collecting taxes due. In some cases, you may have to pay taxes on money you receive as part of a court ruling or settlement in a wrongful death case.

What is the Patient Care Monitoring Act?

If you have a loved one in a New Mexico nursing home or who is going to be living in a nursing home, then it is important for you to understand the Patient Care Monitoring Act. Many people use video cameras to monitor the care their loved one is being given, and this Act may give you the right to do so.
