Program Description

With November's presidential election bearing down quickly, one of the major points of contention between the two candidates is the status of the federal estate tax. Yet, many practitioners have little understanding of exactly what the tax is and what it's meant to do. This webinar will offer a brief top down overview of the federal estate tax and its overall purpose, take a look at the respective partisan attitudes towards it, and examine some of the recent bi-partisan efforts to reform it.

- Summarize the recent bi-partisan efforts at reform
