Learn the 10 Key Steps to Successful Wealth and Management Succession Planning
Very few American families need worry about the Federal estate tax, and possibly the Republican and Trump Administration tax proposals, including repeal of the estate tax, will eventually become law. However, the key to wealth and management succession planning is not merely tax-oriented; rather, family goals and concerns must be dealt with in an integrated, multi-generational way – to ensure the preservation of family wealth in future decades.
Some families currently still face the dreaded Federal estate tax (or death taxes in over 18 State jurisdictions), but, income tax planning for families with substantial wealth is important. CPAs, lawyers, and other professionals can offer practical guidance to their clients in succession planning.
In this session, tax expert Owen G. Fiore, JD, will guide practitioners through the 10 key steps in successful wealth and management succession planning. Owen will provide actual case studies of working with families having substantial wealth, including that represented by passive investment assets and operating family-owned businesses. He will also review contingency planning in the event of death with examples of action plans and required documents.
Additionally, practitioners will learn the effective uses of entities and management succession techniques to ensure wealth creation, management and preservation.
