Program Overview

This program discusses evolving trends and changing laws in tax and estate planning. The focus is on the practical ramifications of these developments and how financial professionals should advise both their average-income and affluent clients. The program will address: planning traps and opportunities resulting from The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017; any tax bills which Congress passed in the fall of 2018; the impact of the November 2018 midterm elections; general trends in tax and estate planning and how financial advisors should respond to those changes; and specific legal rulings and changes that may have a broad impact on tax and estate planning.


Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize long-term emerging trends in estate planning and how they impact clients
  • Understand recent legal changes and how they impact planning for clients
  • Explore the impact of potential looming changes in federal and state tax laws
