How Will the New Tax Reform Impact You?
Philip J. Kavesh

You've probably heard about the massive new Tax Reform Bill, but how do you make sense out of its 429 pages of legal mumbo jumbo?  And can you trust what the media is saying about it?
If you already pay more than $20,000 a year in both federal and state income taxes, you need to know:
  • What are the major changes and what can you do to take advantage of them?
  • How may you plan around the new limitations on your itemized deductions - - state income taxes, mortgage interest, property taxes and charitable contributions?
  • How can you avoid high State income taxes on your stock dividends, bond interest and capital gains?
  • What should you do to reduce taxes on your IRAs?
  • If you own a business or rental real estate, should it be in an entity (S Corp, partnership, LLC) or should your existing entity be changed?
  • What estate planning should you do to take advantage of the increased estate tax exemption?
  • How could the improved school savings plan benefit your children or grandchildren?
  • How might the new tax law affect the economy, the stock market and your investment decisions? (Should you make changes to your investment portfolio?)
  • And much more!


You'll get the plain English, straight forward truth from two of the nation's leading, authorities - - tax and estate planning attorney, Philip Kavesh, and noted economist and CNBC and Fox Business News guest, Dryden Pence.
You don't want to miss what they'll have to say!
We expect a huge turnout, so you need to call and reserve your seats right away.
Please bring your friends and associates who may also benefit from this important information.
