This presentation will explore how the potential sunsetting of temporary tax law changes adopted in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and scheduled to end in 2025, could impact your clients' financial and estate planning goals. The session will discuss techniques to plan ahead for both the eventual sunsetting of these changes, and/or the extension of the law.
