"Dealing with Uncle Sam, Everyone's Least Favorite Relative in the Family Business"

Estate planners must recognize the tax traps and opportunities that accompany the client with a closely-held business. This session will review the federal income tax issues and planning strategies for C corporations, S corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies, and how they affect contemporary estate planning techniques.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will be able to recognize the unique planning opportunities presented when a client’s closely-held business is in the form of a C corporation, S corporation, or partnership.
  • Attendees will be able to explain these planning opportunities to clients
  • Attendees will be able to identify when planning for a client’s closely-held business entity may present potential federal income, gift, or estate tax traps

Prior to our main presentation, the Philadelphia Estate Planning Council will conduct its annual business meeting to elect our 2021-2022 Officers and Board of Directors.
