NAEPC Webinar: Basis Planning
John J. Scroggin, JD, LL.M., AEP® - Scroggin & Company, P.C.
For decades the primary tax focus of estate planning has been in the minimization of transfer tax costs. For over 99% of Americans, the passage of ATRA shifted the tax focus of estate planning to income tax planning and tax basis planning. Jeff Scroggin will discuss some of the practical traps and opportunities in planning for the basis of assets, including pre-mortem basis planning, planning for loss assets and why many of the previous techniques clients previously adopted have pivoted 180 degrees.
John J. (“Jeff”) Scroggin has practiced as a business, tax and estate planning attorney in Atlanta for 36 years. Jeff serves as a member of the board of directors of the University of Florida College of Law and as a founding trustee of the University of Florida College of Law Tax Institute.
