Course Description

Most people think estate planning is about their death. But it’s really not. It’s about your control over your assets — control while you’re living, and control after your death. One of the most basic ways to gain control is through a simple will. But for people with more complex concerns, trust can also come in handy for controlling your assets.

Tax planning takes on more importance when there are different tax rates for individuals and trusts. New ideas for financial planning for retirement must be considered. The purpose of this online CPE/CE course is to explore practical tax-planning ideas that practitioners can use to assist clients with their needs. This online continuing education course will provide you with a practical guide to getting involved in estate planning and administration for CPAs, CFPs, TEPs, CTECs, and Other Professionals who are looking for good ideas that can save clients money!

Outstanding information! We stress with our business owners and clients that almost every tax or estate challenge has already been solved by clever tax attorneys. The client only needs to define their expected outcome as step 1. This presentation was 100% proof of the accuracy of our belief. Great job Robert!

The sense of humor by one of the presenters (including the puppet at the beginning... that was a nice touch) helped break the ice. The knowledge in estate planning and maneuvering will go a long way in navigating the complicated tax environment in the COVID-19 era.

Excellent presentation and information chosen esp the Section 139 and 642(c)(1) data. Fast paced which is a plus to me and to the point strategies. Will continue with other Baruch courses and ordered the two books. Thank you, Mr. Robert!

Fabulous webinar. Excellent presentation and material. Only issue I had was just before poll 5 ( 7.42am PT ) I got disconnected. Not sure why, because I hadn't touched anything ( internet connection was said to have been withdrawn & I checked all the cables, etc.... all in apparent order ). By re joining the webinar, I was able to get to answer poll 6. Again, very excellent webinar. These guys are so up to date

Being a new EA, this course was a bit like drinking from a fire hydrant. I had not been concentrating on trusts, but I will definitely look at them in the future for my clients' planning purposes.

The presenter was very knowledgeable and was able to keep my attention. I learned a lot of things that I did not know, and will be doing further research to gain more knowledge on the subject. I appreciate his thorough handouts and his explanations of things that were hard to process without such.
