This trio of presentations will update accountants and financial planners on topics affecting their clients. Attorneys from Stein Sperling’s Tax Law, Employment Law and Estates + Trusts departments will offer three sessions moderated by David S. De Jong in one program for a total of 3 CPE credits.

Assisting the Troubled Taxpayer • Eric J. Rollinger, J.D., CPA, CVA; Mark W. Schweighofer, LL.M. • 1 CPE Credit

 

This presentation will cover the latest strategies in dealing with the IRS in examination and collection matters from audits to appeals, from installment agreements to offers in compromise and from innocent spouse status to bankruptcy. We’ll also cover updates to alternative voluntary disclosures of foreign bank accounts.  

Asset Protection • Steven A. Widdes, LL.M.; Mark W. Schweighofer, LL.M. • 1 CPE Credit

 

Participants will learn strategies for protecting the vulnerable client’s assets from creditors, reviewing titling alternatives, sheltering children and other beneficiaries from claims of a current or future spouse and the interplay between basis step-up rules and new gifting techniques. In addition to the aspects of personal planning for individuals, this program will also review appropriate protection through selection of the best entity. Specifically, we will review whether an LLC or Corporation is the right selection depending on certain tax, debt and business needs and concerns in addition to the goals involving the sheltering of assets.

Employment Law: Worker Classification, Pay Practices and Other Legal Updates • Darla J. McClure, J.D.; David S. De Jong, LL.M., CPA, CVA • 1 CPE Credit

 

This program will focus on payment of wages in accordance with Federal, State and Local law, including a discussion on minimum wages, overtime, compensation for travel time and payment of wages for exempt and non-exempt workers when taking time off. It will include a discussion of the Montgomery County Earned Sick and Safe Leave Law, which took effect on October 1, 2016.
