Don't Let the Sun Go Down on You
The Business Tax Committee kicks off its 2008–2009 Taxing Matters Series on Wednesday, September 10. This CLE series, held the second Wednesday of every month from September through May, offers attendees 12.5 CLE hours. Columbus Bar members are being offered a series price of $355, a savings of $100.
The series opener, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on You…Year-End Planning Strategies and Ideas Related to the Federal Income and Estate Tax Sunset Provisions, is a 3-hour CLE on important year-end planning ideas and strategies related to federal income and estate tax sunset provisions.
According to Ms. Russell-Washington, committee co-chair, “The September 10 seminar will focus on the so-termed ‘Bush Tax Cuts’ enacted between 2001 and 2006. These tax cuts contain a host of temporary changes to the tax code and the eventual repeal of the estate tax. The temporary tax changes phase in and expire at different rates and times, with most of the provisions now scheduled to expire at the end of 2010. The expiration, coupled with the uncertainty of the incoming tax policy of the next administration, presents a business and estate planning debacle that will be discussed at the seminar.”
Katherine R. Herron, co-chair, explains that “networking and a complimentary continental breakfast precede the September 10 kickoff seminar.” Ms. Herron also indicated that the December 10 seminar includes the bi-annual mandatory ethics, professionalism and substance abuse credits.
The Taxing Matters Series promises to be a knowledge filled year designed to bring the tax practitioner practical and enlightening information for this challenging field of practice.
