2017 Partnership Tax Planning Seminar

This seminar is an intermediate course designed to explain how to take advantage of the partnership structure to both build the net worth of the younger generation while providing for the comfortable exit of the older generation. Along the way, the Internal Revenue Tax Code (IRC) has placed a few land mines but also some nuggets of gold. Our goal is to provide an effective road-map to increase the after-tax wealth of your clients.

Cost of the seminar is $175.00.   Phil Harris'  2017 Agriculture Tax Workbook is available for $35 each. Lunch is on your own.
