Overview of Presentation:
Recent legislation made significant changes to the tax laws affecting investors. Which strategies are likely to work best in the current tax and investment environment? Thomas J. Pauloski, National Managing Director of Wealth Strategies at Bernstein, will discuss challenges that investors currently face, review income tax minimization opportunities, provide perspectives on the newly added “qualified business income” deduction, examine charitable contribution strategies that are likely to maximize economic benefits to both charity and donor, and compare simple gifts to “leveraged” wealth transfer strategies. Tom will use case studies and sophisticated wealth forecasting software to highlight key issues.
