opening a restaurant is a challenge even when it is just a run-of-the-mill place, and a special one like Nightshade takes the extra mile. After all this effort, we can't wait to see it open its doors”

SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many restaurants spring up in big cities like Los Angeles, but one of the most anticipated restaurant openings is certainly Nightshade, of 2014 Eater Young Gun and Top Chef season 12 winner Mei Lin. The restaurant is scheduled to open in January 2019.

Here, Chef Mei Lin partnered with Cyrus Batchan and Francis Miranda of N°8 (Lock & Key in Koreatown) to design and build a modern, wood-lined dining room with hanging lamps, lush greenery, and matching banquettes. It will bring Mei Lin’s unique brand of Asian-influenced dishes to the LA Arts District. In fact, this is the first restaurant where Mei Lin is fully in charge of the menu. Some of the influences come from Lin’s family’s Chinese restaurant in Detroit. Over time, she has developed her own vision of modern Los Angeles cooking, incorporating local flavors in the dishes she designs. The 60-seat dining room itself was designed by restaurant interior experts Jorge Gracia (with Andres Pompa and Benjamin Huerta).

Comments Cyrus Batchan, "opening a restaurant is a challenge even when it is just a run-of-the-mill place, and a special one like Nightshade takes the extra mile. After all this effort, we can't wait to see it open its doors."

The partners are themselves very experienced in the hospitality industry. Cyrus Batchan has years of hands-on experience in the hotel and restaurant industry in the Los Angeles area. Mr. Batchan grew up in a restaurant family and worked every job from dishwasher, cook, delivery driver to bartender. Initially, he managed an investment fund developing real estates all throughout the greater Los Angeles Area. In 2013, he opened Lock & Key, an upscale lounge, in Los Angeles. Nightshade is his most recent endeavor.

Under the TCJA, spousal support under a divorce decree or settlement agreement finalized after December 31, 2018 is no longer deductible, notes Janet Reed, Esq.

The change poses a significant consideration for practitioners … the support being awarded or agreed upon in 2019 and forward will represent a higher financial burden for the payor spouse”

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In her newest published article, lawyer Janet Reed explains recent tax changes that may be implicated in family law proceedings. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

As part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA), tax treatment of spousal support has gone under a major overhaul. As practitioners of family law are well aware, currently, spousal support is an above the line deduction for the payor spouse and taxable income for the payee spouse. This means that regardless of whether the payor spouse takes the standard deduction or the itemized deduction, said payor spouse can deduct spousal support from his or her taxable income and reduce their tax burden. Correspondingly, the payee spouse has to report such spousal support as their income and be responsible for the income taxes on it. Because payor spouse tends to have higher income than the payee spouse, it often results in a net tax benefit by shifting pre-tax dollars from the payor spouse to the payee spouse.

Under the TCJA, spousal support payable under a divorce decree or settlement agreement finalized after December 31, 2018 is no longer deductible by the payor spouse nor reportable as income by the payee spouse. This is also true for any modifications to existing settlement agreements, but only if the agreement explicitly provides that spousal support will no longer be deductible by the payor spouse.

The change poses a significant consideration for practitioners. Attorneys representing payor spouse must recognize that the support being awarded or agreed upon in 2019 and forward will represent a substantially higher financial burden for the payor spouse. At the same time, payee spouse will now receive such support without worry for income tax burden. Payor spouse’s attorney will need to focus on lowering the support amount in litigations and negotiations to accurately reflect the fact that spousal support award can be lower and still provide same financial support to the payee spouse. Attorneys for payee spouse will need to focus on maximizing the financial benefit to the payee spouse and also ensure that support award or agreement does not overcompensate for the change in tax law, resulting in an unduly reduced spousal support.

Navigating the constantly shifting tax laws and their implications on family law cases requires the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. Individuals are encouraged to discuss the potential ramifications of the TCJA on their cases with a qualified family law attorney, adds Ms. Reed.
