Trump, Impeachment, Biden and the Democrats in Charge: The Politics of Tax Policy

Note, due to Covid-19, ETPCEC's quarterly meeting will once again be via Zoom webinar. The link to access the webinar will be included in your registration confirmation email. 

Grab your lunch and tune in to the ETPCEC's next quarterly meeting. Attorney John M. Harpootian will be presenting on the politics of tax policy, including:

  • Projection on possible estate and gift tax exemptions and tax rates.
  • Planning for lower exemptions with large estates and more importantly, smaller "large" estates.
  • Income tax planning for higher income tax rates.
  • Capital gains tax planning.
  • Charitable planning to "bunch" deductions for higher income tax rates and low current interest rates.
