Course Description

The year 2020 was an unbelievable time we will long remember, and 2021 began with a bang. The Democrats took control of Congress and proposed massive changes to federal tax policy.  Although the crisis may abate in 2021, the momentum for tax policy change will likely only increase. The “Blue Wave” along with the fiscal stimulus from Congress will have tremendous implications for your clients, given the likelihood for significant tax changes directed toward wealthy Americans. The President confirmed his suggested tax increases in a recent speech to Congress.

This session will provide ideas, tips, and tools to minimize your client’s tax liability.
