Webcast: Strategies and Tactics In The New War Against

Description

With the Supreme Court holding the Affordable Care Act constitutional, the new .9 percent additional tax on earned income and the additional 3.8 percent tax on unearned income will become the law in 2013 and challenge taxpayers and their advisors to establish planning for 2013 and later years. In addition, President Obama’s budget proposal is calling for significantly higher taxes for 2013. This is in addition to the repeal of the so-called Bush tax cuts. Even if a Republican Congress is elected in November, taxes will go up. The year 2012 is possibly one of the most important tax planning years for wealthy clients and closely held business owners. Clients need to know what they can still do now before the tax law changes, as well as what they can do to take advantage of the future tax environment.
