Time: 5:15pm - 7:30pm

Speaker: Brad Dillon, Senior Wealth Planner, Brown Brothers Harriman

In his presentation, Brad will discuss the President’s and Congress’ most recent foray into tax reform.  After a brief discussion on how (budget rules and reconciliation and other political pressure points), the session will turn to the what, with an emphasis on how Congressional rules and procedure shaped the ultimate “reform” package.  The remainder of the session will focus on planning techniques in light of the new rules, if they have in fact been enacted, with an emphasis on estate and gift tax planning techniques.
