This year’s program will provide in-depth analysis of how the 2017 tax reform affects the formation, operation, and transition of the family-held business.

Other topics to be addressed include:

  • Family dynamics and how estate and succession plans can affect them
  • Best practices for buy-sell agreements
  • Sophisticated trust techniques for lifetime transfers

“In counseling a business owner, one needs to be aware of how income tax issues affect business structuring; how to incentivize key employees; how the business can transition ownership to the next generation; and how to avoid estate tax,” said Planning Co- Chair, Steve Gorin. “And this year, we will explore how 2017 tax reform affects these issues, including the proposed regulations on the 20% deduction for pass-through entity business income and the multiple trust rules (and, for those attending in person, a special off-camera special 30 minute question-and-answer session about the topic). With nationally-known speakers addressing these issues, this program is a must for estate planners who represent family business owners.”
