2019 Estate & Financial Planning Workshop

August 26 • Garden Event Center, Bossier City

All the right moves.

Plotting your financial planning strategy is always a challenge. Some years are riskier than others, but with recent tax changes and the inevitable fluctuations in the market, it’s hard to know whether you are positioned to take the Queen, or whether you’ll be side-checked by economic rooks.

The Estate & Financial Planning Workshop will help you get your game plan together and set you up for success. We have the latest on legislative, market, and tax changes, plus pointers on long-term care and choice of entity — two topics that can make or break your game. You’ll walk away with information you can use to navigate the board to success. Check mate.

Choice of Entity Crossroads: The Intersection of 199A and C Corporation Tax Rates

Brandon Lagarde, CPA, JD, LLM • Postlethwaite & Netterville • Baton Rouge, LA

This session will cover the question that many taxpayers and clients have asked since the passage of Tax Reform: With the C corporation rate so low and the individual rate reduction obtained with the pass-through deduction under section 199A, what kind of entity should I operate my business in? We will discuss the factors that must be considered when choosing your entity classification under Tax Reform.
