Making Lemonade Out of Lemons

Estate Planning in Light of Recent Changes
in the Laws, the Pandemic
and Uncertain Economic Conditions

Presented by
Melanie Witt, Witt Law, P.C.

In the last two and a half years, a pandemic has raged throughout the world, sweeping changes were made to the federal tax laws as they relate to retirement accounts. Illinois enacted the most significant changes in estate planning law in decades. These drastic federal and Illinois laws have been further tweaked and revised. The pandemic caused a potentially permanent shift from daily in office and in-person client and colleague communications to remote working and electronic communications. Coupled with the recent downturn in the economy, and rising interest rates, the everyday operations of financial planning professionals have never been more formidable. This presentation discusses these changes and recommends strategies to mitigate and sometimes take advantage of the current environment. Register today!
