The new tax laws will have a large impact on upper income earners and their divorce... including ending the so-called 'payroll tax holiday'.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Leading divorce-industry professionals are going to gather in San Diego, CA from April 18 to 20 to discuss crucial divorce-related financial and tax issues.
The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA™) is hosting a conference designed to educate financial and legal professionals about topics ranging from post “Fiscal Cliff” taxation changes to dealing with stock options and deferred compensation plans in divorce agreements.
For example, the new tax laws will have a large impact on upper income earners and their divorce, including bringing back the phase-outs for Personal Exemptions and Itemized Deductions and ending the so-called “payroll tax holiday”. Ginita Wall (CPA, CFP®, CDFA™), who was named one of the top financial advisors in the country by Worth Magazine for eight years in a row, will provide updates on tax changes that have occurred because of the Fiscal Cliff as well as point out tax tips and traps for the professionals working with divorcing individuals.
Founded in 1993, IDFA is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as the more than two-million people who will divorce this year in the US and Canada search for alternative divorce processes – from collaborative divorce to mediation – rather than litigating their case using lawyers as their only line of defense.
Certified Divorce Financial Analysts® (CDFAs™) are found throughout the US and Canada, from California to New York to Toronto. To retain their designation, all CDFA professionals must attend Continuing Education conferences and seminars to update their knowledge and upgrade their skills on a bi-annual basis; this conference is one of the avenues available to them.
Called “CE by the Sea”, the April conference is open to financial professionals (CDFAs, CFPs, CPAs) as well as matrimonial attorneys and paralegals.
