Why You Should Attend


The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 passed both houses of Congress on January 1, 2013, preserving tax cuts for nearly 99% of the American people.  However, the federal estate tax rate rises to 40%.


Find out what's changed and what remains the same in the estate tax universe—with sound practical advice from experienced estate planners who closely watch the action on Capitol Hill.


Join Ronald D. Aucutt (McGuireWoods LLP), Beth Shapiro Kaufman (Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered), and Mary Ann Mancini (Loeb & Loeb LLP), from Washington, D.C., for an update on lessons learned in 2012, advice for following up on actions taken in 2012, and strategies for living with the estate tax law in 2013 and beyond.
