David Nykanen, Principal at Demorest Law Firm, PLLC in Royal Oak, Michigan, will be making a presentation at the 2011 Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants (MACPA) CPE Mega Conference on Tuesday, October 26. This year’s conference, which will be combined with the Agribusiness and Fall Accounting Conferences, will be held at the Radisson Hotel in Lansing, MI.

The 2011 CPE Mega Conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear about the latest in accounting and auditing, ethics, financial planning and taxation. There will also be a special track devoted to those serving and running agriculturally-related businesses, a critical industry for Michigan. Mr. Nykanen’s presentation, “Uncapping in Property Transfers,” will focus on the topic of uncapping property taxes. During the presentation David will explain that annual increases in a property’s taxable value are limited to the lesser of 1.05 percent or the inflation rate, except for additions and losses to a property. In the year following a transfer of ownership, that limitation is “uncapped” and the property’s taxable value is set at 50% of the property’s true cash value. Attendees will learn more about uncapping a property’s taxable value and will find out what happens in partial uncapping situations.
