About the Webinar:
The hot topic this year related to taxation is the estate tax and the knowledge that there will be changes this year. This webinar will provide you with the basics of the estate tax process. The webinar also discusses how to plan for transfer of ownership and the incentives that exist for forest landowners. Since no incentive comes without some kind of string, the requirements and unintended consequences of these incentives are also discussed. The goal of this webinar is to provide landowners with enough information to plan to minimize the impact of the estate tax.
