Powers of Deduction: Tax-Saving Strategies Under the Legislation Formerly Known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Session by Thomas J. Pauloski, JD

Recent legislation made significant changes to the tax laws affecting investors. Which strategies are likely to work best in the current tax and investment environment? Thomas J. Pauloski, National Managing Director of Wealth Strategies at Bernstein, will discuss challenges that investors currently face, review income tax minimization opportunities, provide perspectives on the newly added “qualified business income” deduction, examine charitable contribution strategies that are likely to maximize economic benefits to both charity and donor, and compare simple gifts to “leveraged” wealth transfer strategies. Tom will use case studies and sophisticated wealth forecasting software to highlight key issues. This session qualifies for CPE, CLE, and CFRE credits.

Are you capitalizing on Program Related Investments, Community Capital, Pay for Success Bonds, Mission Aligned Investing, and Impact Investing? What are the negatives as donors become investors and compare you with for-profit solutions? What are you seeing out there? How are you winning in this new competitive landscape? This session qualifies for CPE and CFRE credits.
