Beth Kaufman to Discuss Estate Tax Legislative Update
Beth Shapiro Kaufman from Caplin & Drysdale's Private Client practice will be speaking at the ABA's 2010 May Meeting.
Date: May 7, 2010
Time: 9:15 a.m. EDT
Program Description: Estate Tax Legislative Update. This presentation will take an up-to-the-minute look at the estate tax legislative climate. If Congress has acted, the panel will analyze that action and its effect on our clients and our practices. If Congress has not acted, the panel will examine the political, fiscal and practical prospects for legislation and the issues confronting us in the meantime, including: the interpretation of formula clauses in 2010; carryover basis; drafting challenges and opportunities; planning opportunities and risks in 2010; the inscrutable face of the 2011 GST tax and the possibility and effectiveness of retroactive legislation. Other panelists include Ronald D. Aucutt, McGuireWoods LLP, Washington, D.C.; Mary Ann Mancini, Bryan Cave LLP, Washington, D.C.
