House Estate Tax Proposal Requires Immediate Action
The House Democrats are proposing a $3.5 trillion spending plan. To support that package the Democrats have proposed tax increases to fund a large portion of that plan.
Speakers: Jonathan Blattmachr, Esq., Robert S. Keebler, CPA, and Martin Shenkman, Esq.
The House Ways and Means Committee just issued statutory language for the tax increase proposal, including dramatic changes to the transfer tax system. While the tax legislative process will no doubt evolve with many twists and turns, these proposals might be the blueprint for any final legislation. The implications of this are quite simple. Taxpayers who might be affected need to plan and take action now. If a client has been sitting on the tax planning fence waiting to see what will be enacted, this proposal suggests you advise them to jump off the fence and plan with haste. This webinar will explore the House proposal, what might happen, but most important, what advisers should discuss with clients now.

Digital Assets Revisited: Preparing for the Tsunami
Digital assets have been on the radar of estate planners for many years, but their scope has recently expanded – exponentially.
The pandemic forced more people online than ever before, and each account, domain name, and other online presence may need to be addressed in some way when a client dies, or becomes incapacitated. Attorneys who both plan estates and administer them therefore need to understand the underlying issues related to different types of digital property.
Join us as experts in the area of digital assets cover the issues you should address with every client, and discuss helpful tools that may also assist with handling digital assets for your clients. The presenters will discuss:
- The digitization of estate planning
- How attorneys must adapt to new technology, or face being left behind
- Digital asset problems in estate administration and how to handle them
- How to handle digital assets when planning an estate – what to ask and what to look for
- Why a standard provision in a Will or Trust may not be enough
- Best practices
- And more
Don’t miss this timely discussion of a topic that most of us may feel we have adequately covered, but actually may need to address in much more detail.
