We Just Returned from a Two-Day Tax Seminar

Each year we attend a two-day tax seminar put on by the Alabama Society of Enrolled Agents (ALSEA) the Monday and Tuesday before Memorial Day.

Our 2017 Spring Seminar was held at the Birmingham Hilton. Our guest speakers were Ben Tallman, USTCP, EA, BBA and Dr. Roger Roemmich.

The hot topic was “Trump Tax Reform”. The consensus among tax professionals is that we will see tax reform this year, possibly as soon as just before Labor Day weekend (perhaps wishful thinking).

In addition to the Spring Seminar, we attend a Fall Seminar generally held in October the Monday and Tuesday before Halloween. We are hopeful that the new tax law is published before that event, affording us the opportunity to analyze, discuss and learn all of the possible ramifications the changes will bring.

One thing is for certain, if the changes are implemented and become effective in the second half of 2017 or January 1, 2018, there will be strategy planning opportunities.
