Tax series features health & welfare benefit plans
Taxing Matters, a series of tax seminars sponsored by the Business Tax committee, will address tax treatment of health and welfare benefits, such as health savings accounts, health care plans, life insurance and disability insurance, and will include a practical discussion on how to implement such benefit plans without significant expenses for the business client on Wednesday, Feb. 14 from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. for one hour of CLE credit.
Speakers James H. Prior, Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, and Keith A. Raymond, Cardinal Brokerage Insurance Agency, will present this session of particular interest to labor and employment and healthcare attorneys.
Discussion will highlight what tax-favored vehicles exist which employers can make available to their employees in order to minimize the cost of health care; what federal income tax consequences result with such vehicles from the perspective of the employer and the employee; what other types of welfare benefit plans an employer should consider making available to its employees; and what types of welfare benefit plans businesses currently are implementing to save on rising healthcare costs.
Networking and lunch will be from 12:00 to 12:15 p.m. with lunches sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The course may be audited, but only those who are registered will be eligible to earn CLE credit. As with all CLE, no food may be consumed during the seminar portion of the program.
