How much money is Luis Garcia Fanjul's family worth?

That is a very hard question to answer. They all have tons of money but in 2006 the reported amount was 3.2 Billion US Dollars. Not including personal properties which we all know that this would raise that amount significantly. Then take in consideration all there art collection Boat Planes and Cars all the toys they have and last but not least his wife Judith Kamps? So just lets say the family is doing just fine financially.

How can you help needy families at Christmas?

A simple way to help the poor, needy or starving is to donate food. When you give money you never know what there going to spend it on. Usually during Christmas time local large supermarkets are holding can food drives. And the cans are pretty cheap to and you are feeding hungry families instead of just buying gifts for them. Also, taking a visit to homeless shelters and donating food or money also helps out a lot. If your feeling generous you can also go to a children's cancer research hospital or one of those things and donate a few dollars.

Why are you gay?

Here are various user opinions:

  • It's probably combination of environment and genetics, or perhaps God blessed you.
  • No one is really clear on why people are gay, same with not knowing why people are straight.
  • Generally speaking, it is believed that being gay or straight (or whatever) is a matter of genes or birth order--every time a woman has a boy her next son is more likely to be gay.
  • Because you were born that way. You didn't (and still don't) have a choice in the matter the same as you don't have a choice in being a human being. It's just who you are.
  • Because you think that the gender you are is fit! There's nothing wrong with that! You are perfect! Some people say no one is perfect, I say every one is, it who you are and you are the most important person in the world!
  • I am not sure you are gay. Some people that are gay walk different talk different and dress different and are not scared to be gay. yeah but we boys expect bangtan bae are gay; bangtan has a wife!

For that question i have a question for you: Why are you straight? Because you think the opposite sex is hot. That comes naturally and so does thinking that the same sex is attractive for homosexuals. It comes naturally and it's not like it's anything you can change.

Is the rothschild dynasty worth over 500 trillion and do they own all the central banks of the world like the fed bank of England?

Yes. That's true.

$500 trillion is an extremely conservative estimate. Its based on an assumption of only an 8% return on their holdings since 1931, when some speculate the return is near 100% per annum.

Is a gift under 10000 dollars taxable income?

A "gift" is NEVER taxable, unless it can be considered compensation for services (as when an employer gives a "bonus"), or it can be considered a "prize".

Compensation for services is always taxable.

A "prize" is ALWAYS taxable. When Oprah Winfrey gave members of her audience automobiles, this was considered a "prize", not a "gift", as was the subsequent offer to pay their income taxes. However, that determination...of it it is a gift or something else....as I have seen by many questions here and elsewhere... is frequently, if not virtually always, wrongly answered by the recipent. In fact, both the Oprah car and the subsequent offer to pay the tax were wrongly defined by the "expert" staff and audience. (And no, the audience didn't have any idea that Oprah was going to give them each a car...etc.,)

A gift (or gifts) totaling more than $10,000 (indexed for inflation, $12,000 in 2007) to the same person in the same year MAY create a "gift tax" liability for the giver. It will certainly require the filing of an "Estate and Gift Tax Return" by the giver. But no actual tax liability is incurred until the lifetime total of all gifts exceeds the threshold amount, currently $2,000,000.

The Gift tax is not restricted to transactions between parents and children.

Although "a single taxpayer with three children can transfer a total of $36,000 to them every year free of federal gift taxes", a married couple could transfer twice that amount, since both the husband and the wife can separately give $12,000 each to each of their three children!

I need help writing a letter for financial assistance with my mortgage?

This can not be answered in specific without knowing who the letter is going to, what assistance you're looking for, and why you need it. If you're writing your lender, just remember that they will be making a business decision, so whatever you ask for it must:

  • Be within the recipients power to grant
  • Be within bank policy
  • Make financial sense and offer a benefit to the lender
  • Be the last resort (you signed a contract, so you must show that you exhausted ALL other avenues)

Is St Jude Children's Research Hospital a Muslim organization?

No, it is not. Danny Thomas, the comedian and actor, had prayed to St. Jude (the saint of lost causes) and had promised to build a shrine. He did so with the help of other philanthopists in Memphis during the 1950s. His heritage was Lebanese and he felt the support of St. Jude would honor his immigrant forefathers who had come to America.
