Program Description

When Dorothy opened the door to the Land of Oz, her world changed from black and white to color. This webinar opens the door to a new world of tax planning for business owners selling their companies -- it is a blending of M&A taxation with trust taxation. Using a trust structure with over 70 affirming private letter rulings, depending on each business owner's circumstances, tax on one's gain might be reduced by as much as 75 percent.
