2020 is presenting unique challenges and opportunities for advisers to consider important tax and estate planning issues. Despite the terrible news we see daily, 2020 also presents a “perfect storm” for planning opportunities for many of our clients. The decline of stock market values, the provisions of the 2020 CARES Act, the historic low interest rates, the changes in retirement plan distributions wrought by the 2019 SECURE Act, and the political risk of the looming 2020 election, all create an opportunity and an urgency for planning decisions. This program will address what can be done in the difficult months ahead.
