This three-hour seminar co-sponsored by CMLAA and Cleveland Clinic Allied Partners in Philanthropy aims to help attendees understand the changes in federal tax law as a result of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA). The CMLAA understands that many attorneys, particularly those who practice in the areas of taxation, estate planning, commercial law, and charitable giving, are anxiously seeking resources to educate themselves about the new law as soon as possible in order to confidently advise their individual and business clients. Although the session is designed primarily for attorneys, the CMLAA is inviting other professionals to attend and will (subject to pending applications) offer continuing legal education credit to attorneys, and continuing education to accountants and certified financial planners.
