Tax Reform Series - General Individual and Estate Planning Implications

Course Description:
Congress has passed the largest and most comprehensive tax reform legislation in the past 30 years. Businesses and individuals alike are trying to figure out the tax implications and what this means for them in their current situation and moving forward. Many are asking for the basics of what's included in tax reform – what can I do now to save money, what deductions should I take advantage of, what strategies do I need to consider in the future and what am I not considering, that I should be. Our upcoming webinar series aims to arm you with the information and resources to navigate the new tax world.
