Understanding a client’s tax situation, and being able to assess, analyze, and identify complex tax issues that arise incident to divorce are critical skills to master.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Leading divorce-industry professionals are going to gather at Paris Las Vegas, NV from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 to discuss crucial divorce-related financial and tax issues.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA™) is hosting a conference designed to educate financial and legal professionals about topics ranging from identifying red flags and hidden gems in personal and corporate tax returns to income determination for self-employed or business owners to the anatomy of a business appraisal.
For example, here’s a preview of the full-day “Tax Bootcamp” that kicks off the conference.
One of the tasks a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA™) is routinely asked to perform is examining personal and corporate tax returns in order to identify income available to one or both parties – essential during property division and when setting child and/or spousal support. Every tax return has a story to tell – although some should be filed under “Fiction” rather than “Fact”. Understanding a client’s tax situation, and being able to assess, analyze, and identify complex tax issues that arise incident to divorce are critical skills to master. That’s why IDFA is incorporating a “Tax Bootcamp” into their Fall Conference. Delegates will learn how to read and navigate both personal and corporate tax returns, and understand the impact they have on the divorce process.
Other sessions include “A View from the Bench and the Bar” (a Family Court Judge and an attorney addressing about the errors business appraisers and other financial professionals are making in court); “Working with Forensic Accountants and Business Appraisers”; “eMarketing your Practice”; and a “Leading Practitioners Panel”.
CDFA professionals 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.
IDFA’s 20th Anniversary conference is open to financial professionals (e.g., CDFA, CFP, CPA, CA, CGA) as well as matrimonial lawyers and paralegals from the USA and Canada.
