Tax Ramifications Surrounding Real Estate in a Divorce

Presented by: David W. Klasing Esq., M.S.-Tax, CPA 


Program Description

Attorneys and CPAs are often the most knowledgeable professionals in existence where the financial and legal implications of our client's lives are at issue.  For this reason, they are often requested to assist client's in resolving marital disputes surrounding financial issues in divorce scenarios especially where Martial Settlement and Support Agreements are at issue.  Attorneys and CPA's need to know that performing in this capacity is not without risks surrounding potential ethical violations, especially pertaining to conflicts of interest.  Moreover, Real Estate is often the most valuable asset in a client's marital property portfolio and carries with it a host of special tax and planning considerations in a divorce scenario. This class will enable CPAs to render paid services in a client's divorce without engaging in the unauthorized practice of law or tripping on ethical violations. Moreover, Divorce Counsel are often hesitating to take responsibility for provided tax advice and planning in a divorce scenario.  This class will empower Attorneys and CPA's to profitably and ethically assume that responsibility.
