Today, a substantial portion of the wealth held by Americans consists of tax-deferred retirement accounts, such as traditional IRAs, 401(k)s, and 403(b)s. These accounts create a forum for personal financial planners to provide valuable planning opportunities to their clients.
Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, this CPE course covers taxation and income tax planning; integration with other areas of personal financial planning; and, the interrelationship between income tax and estate tax.
Hot topics include:
- Income in respect of a decedent
- Traditional retirement assets
- Equity compensation
- Roth IRAs
- Risk management
- Elder planning
- Special needs
- Terminal illness planning
- Charitable planning
This course also considers planning for income in respect of a decedent (IRD), retirement plans, and net unrealized appreciation, elements which mandate the use of outside advisers, so personal financial planners can work with multiple advisers in achieving the client's estate plan.
