Series: Planning After the American Taxpayer Relief Act 



    Pulling back from the “fiscal cliff” at the 13th hour, the President signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) into law on January 2nd. ATRA and the new net investment income tax have added more complexity to planning given that you now have to navigate through five layers (regular tax, alternative minimum tax, net investment income tax, re-introduction of phase-out in itemized deductions and the increased 39.6% bracket which also throws in higher capital gains rates) in conjunction with running multi-year scenarios to gain a clear picture of the tax landscape. Also, the estate planning dynamic is now changed with the permanence of the $5 million gift, GST and estate exemption and portability.

    The integration of tax planning with your client’s investment, retirement and estate planning strategy is critical to achieving long term favorable outcomes. CPA financial planners now have an unprecedented opportunity to demonstrate their value to clients by providing guidance, planning, and tax expertise. The following webcasts and related presentation materials cover the most important aspects of personal financial planning considerations under ATRA.

    Additional tools and resources can be found in the Planning After ATRA and the Net Investment Income Tax Toolkit.

    Note that content that was created in preparation for the 2013 year-end includes planning ideas and strategies relevant going forward.
