Thank you to our meeting sponsor PNC Wealth Management

Program Description and Benefits: 
Everyone is talking about the Republican Congress repealing the Federal Estate Tax as part of the Trump Administration tax bill. And while there are no certainties in Washington, D.C., it is better to be prepared for change than to have it thrust upon you. Currently, the estate and gift tax exemption for 2017 is scheduled to be $5.49 million per individual. But what if there is no Estate Tax in 2017, 2018 or there is a phaseout over a few years? Then what? Charles “Skip” Fox IV will provide insights as to what planning still needs to be done if there is no estate tax planning to be done at all. And how to convince clients that change is the only constant.
