The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast The 2010 Tax Relief Act: Estate Planning Considerations for 2011 and Beyond

New York, NY, May 08, 2011 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled The 2010 Tax Relief Act: Estate Planning Considerations for 2011 and Beyond. This two-hour event is scheduled on July 6, 2011 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.

Discussion of the recently enacted 2010 Tax Relief Act has mostly focused on the extension of the Bush-era income tax cuts. However, there’s another important consideration: the Act’s impact on estate planning. The new law reunifies the gift, estate and generation-skipping transfer tax exemptions at $5 million – but just for 2011 and 2012. It also sets the rate for these three taxes at 35%. But barring Congressional action, these benefits disappear in 2013, when we’ll be back to a top rate of 55% for the three taxes and $1 million gift and estate tax exemptions, a $1 million+ GST exemption. Thus, uncertainties abound. Nevertheless, 2011 and 2012 offer some unprecedented planning opportunities – and traps for the unwary.

The Knowledge Group’s live web cast will explore some of these issues and opportunities and will provide valuable information and analysis.
