EXCLUSIVE LUXURY OF JW MARRIOTT CANCUN

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

By Sven J. Bode


TRAVEL ‘N STYLE

Forget everything you think you know

about Cancun, and open your eyes to one of the world’s brightest blue beaches, with roaring waves and cool-to-the-touch, powder-white sand. With luxuriously modern accommodations and seriously delicious and authentic international dining options just steps from the sea, this oceanfront locale is the perfect vacation spot if you simply want to treat yourself this spring.

Just a two-hour flight from Orlando and Tampa, Cancun is Mexico’s gem of a city located on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, nestled on the pristine Caribbean Sea. With Mayan ruins that whisper of the land’s ancient civilization to the exhilarating night life of the city itself, Cancun beckons you to discover today’s modern luxury that harkens back to the wonders of Mexico’s intriguing culture.

THE JW MARRIOTT CANCUN IS TRULY AN ESCAPE FROM THE ORDINARY

For an unequivocally fabulous stay in opulence, JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa is your number-one destination for a Cancun getaway. Unlike all-inclusive resorts, the JW Marriott Cancun is the right-to-choose resort… With a wondrous variety of eateries and activities on and near the property, you have the privilege to choose to use any of the amazing places to dine on the premises or at the lux, Miamistyle shops and restaurants across the street with romantic bay views. After the Marriott Cancun’s convenient shuttle service picks you up from the airport, you’ll step foot into the resort’s

contemporary yet authentic lobby, which is just the beginning of the Marriott’s recent $40 million renovation of its 447 oceanfacing guest rooms and suites. Influenced by the Mayan culture and Mexico’s natural beauty, the lavish overhaul, led by Martha Gaos and Claudia Gonzalez of G+G Interiorismo, fashions calming colors and textures into a soothing atmosphere that echoes the resort’s vibrant ocean views, with the usual indulgence of the JW Marriott brand that guests have come to know and love. The JW Marriott Cancun is truly an escape from the ordinary, with architecture and interior design that will transport you to the heart of Cancun’s abundant history and captivating location. Each room showcases a delicate balance of warm, beachy earth tones and cool hues of seascape turquoise, which bring the Mexican Caribbean to life. Every corner of the resort is true to Cancun’s rich culture, including authentic Mexican textiles and materials, reclaimed wood accents, and herringbone-patterned floors designed by locals. Enjoying the afternoon at the resort’s amazing grand pool laguna is a treat to the senses; even unwind in the mesmerizing infinity pool. Of course, nearby is the never-ending beach with its crystal clear waters, which you’ll want to experience for a relaxing few hours of paradise. Reserve a cabana for an even more tranquil waterfront day in the sand. For a lovely lunch or dinner by the beach, the Marriott’s American ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM |

restaurant, BeachWalk, offers both pool and beachside service, with scrumptious sandwiches, salads, and tropical cocktails. The BeachWalk terrace has also cooked up an invigorating dining experience called the Four Hands Dinner. This eating concept that originated in Spain has become a popular dining style on an international scale, as it showcases two different chefs who work together to create a multi-course dinner, complimenting each other’s talents and tastes. Recently launched this year, the Marriott’s version of the Four Hands Dinner is a new monthly dining option and a twist on the chefs’ traditional menu, tempting you with an exciting gastronomic fusion wonderfully paired with wine. Delicious breakfast awaits you at the onsite Sedona Grill, which opens to gorgeous views of the pool area. This is a great place to sample local, authentic Mexican dishes, and you can begin your morning with a filling Mexican breakfast buffet. The newly renovated private Club 91 is another breakfast spot to try for your first real taste of Mexico. If you are in the mood for an evening of indulgence, Club 91 is your place to kick back in sophistication and style. With the exclusivity of a private club, Club 91 is complete with the luxury services that one would expect from JW Marriott. Perhaps the most tantalizing feature of the Marriott Cancun is its recently debuted 150 Margaritas menu at the JW Lobby Bar. The bar’s skilled team of expert mixologists and tequila connoisseurs have passionately worked to fashion a menu that

| ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

features 150 margaritas in four categories: Classic, Modern, Fusion, and Exotic. Your Instagram feed will be thirsty for a post of one of any of the 150 decadent drinks. Each margarita is crafted with silver, reposado, and añejo varieties of tequila, as well as mescal, and some are even infused with exotic ingredients such as chili peppers, beetroot, and black tea. Lose yourself in the tranquility of Cancun in the resort’s 30,000 square foot spa, featuring an array of spa treatments, a beautiful steam room, an Olympic-size pool, and tennis courts. Rated one of the top spas in Mexico, the Marriott Cancun’s spa with natural Mayan influence is where you’ll find the most sophisticated massages, body wraps, manicures, pedicures, and other services. The Spa’s famous 50-minute, Mayan-inspired massage is a not-to-be-missed addition to your vacation that will leave you completely rejuvenated. The magic of the Caribbean Sea will definitely be the highlight of you trip to Cancun. From the soft, warm sand to the foaming waves extending to an endless horizon, you’ll want to spend your hours soaking in the breathtaking views of these exotic waters. What better way to see the beautiful blue sea of the Mexican Caribbean than from the comfort of a yacht? Experience a four-hour tour that will take you through the Cancun seas and on a journey unlike any other. After your time sailing the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll probably be hungry for some fresh seafood, and Mar-bella Rawbar & Grill, one of Cancun’s widely known restaurants, is one of the region’s finest, with views that pair as well with the menu as the wine. The open-air dining, the beach, the

swaying palms, and even the freshfrom-the-sea dishes all combine to create the most relaxed, romantic atmosphere for you and your special someone. An evening at Sedona Grill is an evening spent enjoying the fullness of Mexico’s spicy and savory culinary tradition. Using local ingredients, the chefs concoct a variety of mouthwatering Southwestern fusion dishes with a classic Mexican twist. From an exquisite raw bar to signature Mexican plates and even a dinner buffet, you’ll experience a taste of both the sea and shore as the Mexican sun sets on another day of tropical bliss. Rosa Negra is another stunning dining location for authentic Latin American cuisine. This waterfront restaurant features incomparable views of Nichupte Lagoon, with wooden decks over the water. With eclectic dishes from countries like Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, and Argentina, Rosa Negra’s international menu offers exciting flavors accompanied by live music from a local DJ. Wherever your Cancun adventure takes you, you’ll want to make the JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa your paradisiacal home away from home as you spend your spring retreat in the luxurious refinement of Mexico’s modern oasis.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

HIMALAYAN SALT THERAPY at Waldorf Astoria Spa By Riesa Pascal

Himalayan Salt Therapy is making waves across the country for providing relief from a variety of ailments and I had the opportunity to experience a rejuvenating session for myself during an afternoon of unparalleled relaxation at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa. The Spa’s Himalayan Salt Room is only one of seven in the U.S. making the Waldorf Astoria Orlando Spa the first full-service resort spa to offer this service in the state of Florida. The Spa boasts twenty-four thousand square feet, 22 treatment rooms and a team of roughly 70 providers. Their menu offers everything from Facial Therapies to Salon Services and everything in between. Upon our arrival, our service providers Catherine and Melanie led my companion and I through the gorgeous facility into private rooms where we were treated to the Spa’s signature Himalayan Salt Escape—a 50 minute Himalayan Salt Stone Massage and a 30 minute Himalayan Salt Room Therapy Session. Although the massage has been offered since January 2017, the salt therapy experience has only been opened since this past December. However, in spite of it only being a few months old, the feedback has been incredible.

“I noticed that a lot of our guests that are long-distance travelers come down with a little something when they get here which is really unfortunate as it can negatively impact their vacation. My desire was to assist those with asthma or allergies or who feel like they might be coming down with a cold and I found the room to be very effective for me personally so I really liked the idea of integrating it for our guest.” -Lindsay Neeley, Spa Director Himalayan Salt Therapy (or halotherapy) is a natural therapy dating back hundreds of years

to Eastern Europe. It involves relaxing in a specialized room filled with dry salt particles that help to cleanse your airways and skin in addition to boosting your general well-being. When my companion and I stepped into the fascinating therapy room, we were both taken back by the simple beauty of the space. The walls were lined with gorgeous Himalayan salt bricks that we learned were mined in Pakistan and the ground was covered in vibrant salt granules from wall to wall. Together, my companion and I laid back in cozy recliners, dimmed the lights, and allowed the halotherapy portion of the salt room to work its magic. This portion involved pharmaceutical grade sodium fluoride that is placed into a halo-generator. The device grinds the salt into ultra fine particles that diffuse throughout the room and enter your body via the respiratory system. Inhaling the particles speeds up mucus clearance and helps to improve respiratory function, while simultaneously eliminating bacteria, soothing the lungs, and opening airways which might be constricted. “We had a young lady who flew in from London recently and she was unfortunately sick before she even got on the plane, but she did three days in a row in the salt chamber and she said that she’s never recovered from a sinus infection so quickly. By and large our feedback has been so positive about the experience and I think it’s because it really does help with those things.” -Lindsay Neeley, Spa Director The backlit walls of the room give off wonderful negative ions to help guests relax which we learned are the same ions you get when you sit on the beach inhaling the salty air and watching the waves for hours. The Himalayan Salt Room provides this same sense of peace

and boast a range of health benefits. Just a few include relief from asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, ear infections, cystic fibrosis, COPD and even jet lag. Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea are also much improved from dry salt therapy. It truly is a treatment for everyone. My companion experienced the sinus benefits immediately after our session, but even if you feel as healthy as I did stepping in, the relaxation experience from being in the space is well worth the time in the incredible room. It’s an absolutely beautiful environment and will quickly bring you to a place of immense peace. Relaxation and wellness are the fundamentals of all spa experiences and the Himalayan Salt Room truly offers that to everyone regardless of the state of their health. “So few people now take time to truly disconnect whether it’s from our phones or from our mental activity. Often when we don’t have our phones in front of us our minds are going a thousand miles a minute and I think that the salt therapy provides the opportunity to truly disconnect and practice mindfulness and meditation while you’re in the space.” -Lindsay Neeley, Spa Director

On February 9th, pet lovers from all over Central Florida gathered at beautiful Lake Eola to support Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s mission to educate, shelter, place, and heal pets and their families with compassionate, responsible care. 2019 Paws in the Park was a community wide fundraising event providing support for the more than 7,000 homeless pets who will be cared for at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s two shelters this year. The event is Orlando’s oldest and largest pet walk and featured multiple activities for pets as well as shopping, food trucks and entertainment. Also on February 9th, The Sam Flax Wall Project returned for its highly anticipated, 4th annual event. The day long, iconic celebration featured 11 hand-selected artists completely repainting the Sam Flax building with more new murals and wall space than ever! Guests of the festivities got a chance to meet local artists while enjoying a day of art, food vendors, music, raffle prizes, interactive art stations and more! Bringing the heat since 2009, the Orlando Chili Cook-off is one of the city’s most mouthwatering festivals!

ARTS & CULTURE

ARTS Lake Nona The Beacon in Lake Nona is a 60-foot sculptural steel enclosure, inspired in part by the first Stethoscope, wrapped with high-definition video projections, creating cinematic video artwork that will bring the structure to life each night. The Beacon is hollow inside, and its outer layer is composed of aluminum panels with scalloped edges. Featuring a rotating array of sculptural video concepts conceived by Michael Counts and created by a team of designers at 3LD, the look and character of the structure – as well as the overall experience at Lake Nona Town Center – will be continually evolving.

MONEY

MAX IT OUT NOW! By Nancy Hecht CFP, AIF

Many people think they cannot afford to max out their 401(k) contributions. Many others do not think about contributing to their own account beyond what their company will match. I am asking you to reconsider these decisions. One way or another, the funds are coming out of your paycheck, either it is going into your 401(k), or it is going to the IRS in the form of payroll tax. Let me show you that you can afford to increase your contribution. By maxing out pre-tax 401(k) savings at $19,000, a dual-income married couple can reduce their taxable income by $38,000. At the 25% tax bracket, that equates to a rough estimate of $9,500 in tax savings. 401(k) investors, of course, will have to pay taxes when they start withdrawing their 401(k) savings at retirement. The bottom line: the more you save in your 401(k), the more you save on your taxes.

TRUNKS OR SHORTS? Trunks that will double as your favorite shorts! When you’re shopping for swimwear, keep this in mind...“Could I still rock these even if I was nowhere near the water?” Designers recently have creating “swim shorts” rather than “trunks,” with good reason—from the fit to the fabrics to the details, today, swimsuits are meant to blend with the rest of your outfit. So you can throw ‘em on when you’re out running weekend errands, simply because they happen to look good with your polo. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

The NTT IndyCar Series is the premier open-wheel racing series in the United States. It offers one of the most diverse and challenging schedules in motorsports with races held on ovals, permanent road courses and temporary street courses. A new aerodynamic body kit was introduced to the series in 2018 at the St. Petersburg opener providing a sleeker, more aggressivelooking Indy car.

Drivers who have honed their skills in the series include Indy 500 winners Dan Wheldon, Sam Hornish Jr. and Buddy Rice.

ALL SET FOR

OPEN-TOP SEASON The New Porsche 911 Cabriolet

The open-top 911 continues in a decades-

long tradition, established when Porsche unveiled the prototype of the first 911 Cabriolet at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September 1981. Customers and fans alike were instantly captivated. The first open-top 911 variant rolled off the production line in 1982, and it has been a constant feature in the model range ever since. The open-top version of the iconic sports car will be launched in 2019 to almost unprecedented fanfare. It includes all the innovative features of the Coupe, along with Cabriolet-specific advanced features such as new hydraulics which get the roof opened and closed more quickly than ever. The new model echoes the modern lines of the Coupe, though it remains unmistakably a Porsche 911 in Cabriolet form. The fullyautomatic soft top has an integrated glass rear window, while the soft top structure contains magnesium surface elements known as bows, which reliably prevent ballooning of the roof

at high speeds. The soft top can be opened or closed at speeds up to 50 km/h. New roof hydraulics reduce opening time to around twelve seconds, while an electrically extendable wind deflector ensures that necks are shielded from wind impact. The 911 Cabriolet is initially available as a Carrera S with rear-wheel drive and Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive. Both rely on a 2,981 cmÂł charged six-cylinder boxer engine with 331 kW (450 PS; 911 Carrera S Cabriolet: Combined fuel consumption 9.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 208 g/km; 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet: Combined fuel consumption 9.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 207 g/km) at 6,500 rpm and 530 Nm torque between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm. The drive efficiency has been increased and emissions reduced by way of an improved injection process; other optimization measures have also been implemented, such as a new layout for the turbochargers and charge air cooling system. The power is delivered by

a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Carrera S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds (with optional Sport Chrono Package: 3.7 seconds) and can reach speeds up to 306 km/h. The Carrera 4S attains a top speed of 304 km/h and achieves 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (with optional Sport Chrono Package: 3.6 seconds). The new engine mounting position makes the Cabriolet even more torsionally rigid than its predecessor. For the first time, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sport chassis is available for the 911 Cabriolet. The springs used for this are harder and shorter, the front and rear anti-roll-bars are more rigid, and the chassis overall has been lowered by ten millimeters. These adjustments give the 911 a more neutral feel on the road, with better weight distribution.


TOYS

THE NEW MODEL ECHOES THE MODERN LINES OF THE COUPE, THOUGH IT REMAINS UNMISTAKABLY A PORSCHE 911 IN CABRIOLET FORM.

An exterior design that draws on earlier generations of the 911 The new 911 Cabriolet looks wider, more selfassured and altogether more muscular than its predecessor. Wider wings arch over the large 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. The rear-wheel-drive models now match the bodywork width of the existing all-wheel models. The rear axle is 44 mm larger. The front end – generally 45 mm wider – revives a traditional feature from earlier 911 generations: a forward-extended bonnet with a distinctive recess in front of the windscreen. Both elements lengthen the front of the vehicle and give it a dynamic look. The rear of all models is dominated by the significantly wider, variable-position spoiler and the continuous, seamless and elegant light bar. With the exception of the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminum.

Redesigned interior with clear lines The interior is distinctive, with the clear, straight lines and recessed instruments defining the dashboard. As it does in the original 911, the new dashboard covers the entire width between two horizontal wing levels. Alongside the centrally positioned rev counter, two thin, frameless freeform displays deliver information to the driver. Now 10.9 inches in size, the centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) can be operated quickly and without causing distraction.

car up to focus on safety, by simply pushing a button or using the mode switch on the steering wheel (Sport Chrono Package). The camerabased warning and brake assist system, also fitted as standard, detects the risk of collision with vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists, and initiates a warning or emergency braking procedure if necessary. A park assistant system including reversing camera completes the standard configuration of the Cabriolet. Options for the 911 include Night Vision Assist with thermal imaging camera, as well as adaptive cruise control with automatic distance control, stop-andgo function and reversible occupant protection.

Sophisticated assistance systems enhance safety and comfort In a world first, Porsche has developed Wet Mode, which is included as standard. This function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver, who can then set the

Now the stressful part comes where we have to go out and buy a swimsuit. Just like clothing, you want to buy something that you like the way it looks, how it feels, and most importantly how it makes you feel. The goal is always to feel comfortable and confident. There are so many different styles of swimsuits. You have the two-piece set. But don’t be afraid if you’re not totally comfortable with wearing a two piece. Many two pieces come with high-waisted bottoms or with a top that’s like a crop top if you don’t want to show too much skin. The same goes for one-piece bathing suits. One pieces don’t mean that you can’t show skin. You can

definitely be sexy in a one piece! With the right cut outs, you can show as much skin as a two piece! This is for the bigger chested ladies. Make sure that your top is supportive! Keep in mind how much movement you’ll be doing, if you’re going to be really active or not. You don’t want your girls falling out! Making sure your top is properly lined or maybe has built-in cups might be your route. And of course, decide if you want the bathing suit to be a fashion piece or more of a functional piece. If it’s more for a statement piece, then you don’t have to worry about how water-dynamic it is or how quick it dries. We hope this helps you on your bathing suit shopping journey!

LEAGUE Celebs

Who says you can’t have beauty & brains? By Riesa Pascal

These days, graduating from an Ivy League school is practically a prerequisite to becoming a politician or public figure. From John Adams to Barack Obama, Harvard alone boast eight presidents who hold their prestigious degrees, but what about when it comes to Hollywood? While most celebrities do hold a college degree, you may be surprised to learn that many took their post-high school education to a whole other league—the Ivy Leagues. Besides having looks and talent to envy, here are Hollywood stars that were also smart enough to get accepted into private and prestigious Ivy League schools.

CELEBRITY SOUP

Mindy Kaling Before writing and starring in The Office, Mindy Kaling was a student at Dartmouth studying Latin and then switching to theater. She graduated in 2001 with a degree in playwriting and spent her time as a student drawing a campus comic strip for The Dartmouth called “Badly Drawn Girl.” John Legend The talented John Legend secured scholarships from Harvard, Georgetown, and Morehouse before deciding to attend the University of Pennsylvania where he studied English with an emphasis on African American literature. A year before his graduation in 1998, a friend introduced him to Lauryn Hill, who hired him to play piano on her song “Everything Is Everything” and the rest is history. Natalie Portman The incredibly brainy Natalie Portman graduated from Harvard University in 2003 where she earned a degree in Psychology. In addition to speaking 5 languages (Hebrew, French, Arabic, German, and Japanese), the Oscar-

winning actress is an advocate for education and once famously said, “I’d rather be smart than a movie star.” Conan O’Brien Late-night talk show king Conan O’Brien was his high school’s valedictorian and went on to graduate magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1985 with a major in U.S. History. During his tenure, he spent time as a writer, editor and president for the Harvard Lampoon. Lupita Nyong’o Before she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong’o was an aspiring student of Yale School of Drama. She received a master’s in acting in 2012 and landed her breakout, award-winning role soon after graduation. Tommy Lee Jones Tommy Lee Jones didn’t just play a Harvard student on the big screen (Love Story, anyone?). He actually graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts

degree in English in 1969. As many pop culture buffs knows, Tommy’s college roommate was former Vice President Al Gore and he became a star offensive guard on Harvard’s football team. Rashida Jones The multi-talented Rashida Jones started out studying Religion and Philosophy at Harvard, but graduated in 1997 with a degree in Acting. As a student, she wanted to become a lawyer, but changed her mind after the OJ Simpson trial. John Krasinski “Jim Halpert” joins his The Office co-stars Mindy Kaling, Rashida Jones, and Ellie Kemper in holding an Ivy League University degree! The handsome, award-winning actor went to Brown University where he started out studying English Literature before switching his major to Theater.

Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour By Courtney Caggiano

After Elton John made the

heartbreaking announcement that he would have to cancel his Orlando concert as a part of the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour due to an ear infection, the legendary singer is making his grand return to Orlando’s Amway Center on March 18 to reward his Florida fans with the long-awaited performance. John’s three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour is one of the most highly anticipated concert experiences of the decade, as this is said to be the iconic singer’s final musical goodbye to the audiences who have loved him for decades. At the age of 71, the singer’s incomparable voice has transformed the musical landscape with heartwarming and enlightening lyrics matched with groundbreaking melodies that have inspired listeners for the past five decades, and he is sure to continue to encourage the generations of the future. Sir Elton’s creative achievements have captured the hearts of audiences all over the world, as he has challenged the norms and pushed the boundaries as one of the most ornately iconic acts in history. However, with all of John’s outlandish, over-the-top, and whimsical characteristics, he will always be remembered for his true gift to the world: the pure beauty of his song. While the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour is sure to include all of John’s classic frills of his dramatic performances, exciting wardrobe, and eccentric taste, there are sure to be moments that show the singer as he truly is: just a man and a piano, singing songs that have touched the world with the unparalleled songwriter’s ability to craft music and

lyrics to express the ultimate joys and losses of life. Fans should also expect the British performer to portray his global appeal through the variety of locally inspired genres—from southern blues and gospel, urban R&B and boogie-woogie, to the wild wonder of country western tunes. Hits like “Tiny Dancer,” “Bennie and the Jets,” and “Crocodile Rock” will bring back memories of John’s early days as an artist, as songs like these classic tunes highlighted John’s thrilling career. Still, in John’s signature style, the Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour is anything but a simple goodbye. The singer has fashioned a grand, exciting, and colorful show that is said to surpass any arena concert he has ever performed. This high-tech production will showcase all the fanfavorite, chart-topping numbers from the past with even more vibrant flair than ever before. “Performing live fuels me and I’m ecstatic and humbled to continue to play to audiences across the globe,” John said in an official statement on his website. “I plan to bring the passion and creativity that has entertained my fans for decades to my final tour…It’s time to come off the road so I can fully embrace the next important chapter of my life.” So for those of you who secured your ticket to this unforgettable, once-in-alifetime concert, you are sure to have the time of your life, as this will most likely be your very last chance to witness Elton John live. You won’t want to miss this amazing show that you will always remember, whether you are a new fan of Elton John or if you have loved the singer for years. It is sure to be a beautiful farewell.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW

NOT FILING TAX RETURNS Can Cost You Money and Your Freedom

It’s the time of year when people,

as well as companies, have to deal with preparing income tax returns. April 15th is the deadline for filing income tax returns but that date can be delayed to October 31st by filing an extension with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The extension must be submitted by April 15th. In addition, any tax due must be paid by April 15th. The failure to file a return carries a penalty of 5% of the amount required to be shown on the tax return for each month, or fraction of a month, that the return is late. This penalty is subject to a maximum of 25%. The failure to pay the tax within the time allowed results in a 0.5% penalty for each month, or fraction of a month, not to exceed 25%. In addition, the IRS charges interest which is compounded daily   If the IRS believes that the failure to timely file the return was fraudulent, the civil penalty is 15% per month, up to a maximum of 75% on the amount of tax that should have been shown on the tax return. These civil penalties for failure to timely file and pay, can significantly increase the amount due to the IRS.   The law also provides that the willful failure to file a tax return and pay tax can be a crime. If a person knows a tax return is due or a payment of taxes is required, and willfully decides not to file the tax return or not to pay the tax, that person may be prosecuted. A criminal prosecution for failure to timely file the tax return can result in a prison sentence of up to one year in prison for each year a return is not filed. Likewise, each year of willful nonpayment of tax can be punished by up to one year in prison. It is the normal practice of the IRS not to bring a criminal case for failure to file the tax return or pay the tax, unless there are multiple years involved. It is

common that a prosecution will involve 3 or more years of failure to timely file or pay. A conviction can also result in a $25,000 fine for a person and a $100,000 fine for a corporation. This is in addition to paying the tax plus interest and civil penalties. Many people do not understand how a person cannot file tax returns for years. I have had clients explain that he or she failed to file a tax return one year for an innocent reason, such as being ill or out of the country. The person is afraid to file a tax return the next year and this repeats itself until many years have gone by without filing a tax return. If the IRS discovers a person has failed to file tax returns for several years, the chance of a criminal prosecution increases significantly.   There are ways to deal with multiple years of not filing file tax returns. In November of 2018, the IRS announced new guidelines for the VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE PRACTICE (VDP). Under the VDP, a person is able to file late tax returns and avoid prosecution as long as certain conditions are met. Some of the more significant conditions are that the person’s income cannot be from illegal sources and that the person cannot be under audit or criminal investigation. In addition, the individual must fully cooperate in the IRS audit and reach a settlement which includes payment of all taxes, interest, and civil penalties.   The VDP, as in all matters related to the IRS, is not simple nor easy-to-understand. An experienced criminal tax defense lawyer should be utilized to successfully complete the VDP and avoid criminal prosecution.

DR. NORBERT CHRISTMANN D.V.M. & TEAM Animal Clinic of Wekiva Dr. Norbert Christmann is a graduate of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. He started his career as a mixed animal veterinarian in Canada’s north, before eventually moving south, first to South Dakota and then on to Florida in 2008. During his tenure in Florida Dr Christmann has been solely a small animal practitioner, working a variety of jobs with the SPCA’s and other clinics while honing his surgical and medical skills. In December of 2013, Dr. Christmann opened the Animal Clinic of Wekiva in Longwood Florida with a view to provide a high quality of veterinary medicine at a reasonable price. Since its inception the Dr. Christmann has ensured that the Animal Clinic of Wekiva has the most up to date equipment available, and strives to push the boundaries of what the clinic can offer, beyond the routine medical offerings making use of a vast support network available both electronically and within the Orlando veterinary community. The Team The real strength at the Animal Clinic of Wekiva is the team that has been put in place. The first to join was Millie Heinen who started with the clinic’s inception. Millie is quiet and polite and a leader at our front desk. The second person added to the team was Daniela Perez. Daniela is small

but has a wonderful sense of humor and is someone who is very reliable and compassionate in her duties as a veterinary technician. The third on board was Yessenia Villanueva. Yessenia is someone who Dr. Christmann had worked with before, she possesses organizational skills to be envied and genuine love of all animals. Ms Summer Lamoureux was next she has a fun loving personality and spend a lot of her time between reception and collecting what data is needed to run the clinic. Mrs. Heather Corn is the final person added to the staff. Heather likes to joke around a bit and is one of the most accomplished technicians that Dr. Christmann has ever had the pleasure of working with. Mrs. Adrienne Christmann, Dr. Christmann’s wife and partner in the business oversees many of the activities in the clinic. Adrienne possesses the most compassionate outlook of anyone and can be frequently found sitting with and comforting the patients. Why We Are Different Dr. Christmann and his team, are committed to keeping a personal feel to the Animal Clinic of Wekiva. The team, while all trained and all impassioned, are more than just a team, really they more like a family. The thing that sets them apart more than anything else is is that they treat our clients and their pets as family too.

JUAN PATINO, D.V.M. Kirkpatrick Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Juan Patino graduated from the Facultad de Medicina Veterinaria, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogota, in 1983. Soon after graduation, through the encouragement and support of his family, Dr. Patino relocated to the United States to officially launch his professional career. Driven by hard work, sacrifice, and responsibility Dr. Patino bought and took ownership of Kirkpatrick Veterinary Hospital, PA in 1998. Since then, he and his team have strived to provide the highest quality of veterinary medicine. He has accomplished this quality by maintaining the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation during his ownership. AAHA evaluates practices from customer service, to maintaining the most advanced and current protocols for any case presented. Dr. Patino has a knack for honoring and respecting the unwavering bond between family pets, and their owners. An example is how close he has been with his personal pets, which you can find working with him every day at his practice. Clients loved his original assistant, “Pibe”, who was his

silk yorkshire terrier that wandered the halls behind him. Currently, you’ll meet, “Pacho”, a rescued Shih Tzu that has carried on the tradition of being his assistant in all exam rooms. The success of his long-spanned career of over 35 years lies on his passion for animal welfare, combined with his special ability to establish lifetime relationships with his clients and their animal companions throughout the years. Dr. Patino has used his knowledge, experience and foresight to concentrate and develop a special interest in areas of his profession such as Internal Medicine, Dentistry, Dermatology, soft tissue surgery, and the constant and proactive early detection and prevention of diseases. Thanks to his exceptionally loyal clientele, his team of professionals, and his commitment to high quality veterinary medicine, Dr. Patino has positioned his name, and his AAHA accredited practice, Kirkpatrick Veterinary Hospital, as one of the most respected in the Orlando area.
