No matter who is elected president, all will face the prospect of receiving the biggest tax increase in recent history. With the Bush-era tax cuts and the Obama payroll-tax reduction stimulus set to expire at the end of this year, coupled with mandated federal spending cuts and new taxes associated with health-care legislation, it creates the perfect storm for what many are calling the "fiscal cliff". What can or should businesses and individuals do to prepare?
Join us for what promises to be a very lively panel discussion on these critical issues and how to cope with them, featuring political, tax and financial planning experts.
