Personal Financial Planning Update: Income Tax, Retirement and Estate
Personal financial planning issues evolve in an increasingly challenging environment which makes it harder to keep up with important and timely changes. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act introduced revisions to the tax code prompting CPAs to prepare for the unexpected. But how are they really working. Is it time to make alternative changes?
CPAs need to be in tune with the many new approaches required in this changing environment. Part of the CPA’s challenge is to help clients stay on top of their goals, while managing their expectations and striving for realism, so they can achieve what they set out to accomplish.
This session focuses on updating CPAs to the newest changes in personal financial planning and preparing for future opportunities as it relates to income tax, retirement and estate planning issues. It will also point out the value of Form 1040 from a financial planning perspective, including reviewing each line to ensure that you know how to address the dozens of financial planning opportunities found on Form 1040, with particular emphasis on retirement and estate planning strategies.
