Pillar, Shareholder, Greenberg Traurig LLP will speak at the Knowledge Congress’ upcoming webcast entitled: “Section 7216 II: Shades of Gray LIVE Webcast Questions and Answer Session”.

Section 7216, which went into effect on January 1, 2009, will have a broad impact on the use of consumer’s tax information particularly with respect to sharing it with third parties. Tax preparers are understandably interested in understanding exactly what they need to do to comply with this important regulation. In our February Section LIVE 7216 webcast, we received several hundred detailed and pointed questions from the audience. Many of the questions surrounded the creation of newsletters and the specifics of the regs. “Section 7216 II: Shades of Gray LIVE webcast Question and Answer Session” aims to address those questions. The experts will reconvene in a one-hour live webcast which will be completely dedicated to providing specific answers to many detailed questions.
This new regulation can have a potentially broad impact on your business. This webcast is one of the most important events that we will run this year and is a must attend for CPAs and their marketing staff.
