Year-End Planning in 2020: Including Planning for a Potential Biden Administration
The first-half of 2020 was an unbelievable time we will long remember. The SECURE and the CARE Acts by themselves will make year-end planning far more complex. However, the second-half of the year will likely hold even more significance. The 2020 election has tremendous financial implications for our clients, given the wide and growing gap in tax policy between the two parties.
Whether you’re a financial advisor, life insurance agent, CPA or attorney, you need to advise your clients as to the best course of action for the time remaining in 2020 and into 2021.
This session will provide ideas, tips and tools to act before year-end to minimize your clients’ tax liabilities. We are busy designing year-end planning and implementation steps depending upon the election results. The issue is that if Vice President Biden is elected and the Senate is controlled by the Democratic Party, there simply will not be enough time and advisors to design and implement plans. The goal between now and the election is to position your clients so that the “heavy lifting” is done prior to the election and executing the implementation of your advice is easy.
