2018 Tax Reform: Impacts & Opportunities
Wednesday, November 14th, 1:00 PM Eastern
With (most of) the political noise about the first substantial tax law change in a generation behind us, you have a few months left this year to plan for how those changes are likely to affect you in April. More important, you have a few months left to make any adjustments to mitigate or eliminate some of the less pleasant effects. Some of those adjustments need to be made before the end of the calendar year.
This webinar is for you if you actually plan ahead for tax season. If you’re content to be surprised in April–and especially if you’re still making political noise about the new laws–come on back next month when we talk about the Department of Defense Blended Retirement System.
Blended Retirement System: Time’s Up, Get Off the Fence
Wednesday, December 5th, 1:00 PM Eastern
Been dragging your feet making your opt-in decision for the Department of Defense’s new Blended Retirement System (BRS)? Maybe you’ve decided you’re just not going to opt in but haven’t actually looked at the numbers. In this webinar we’ll cover how to break down your decision, including side-by-side by-the-numbers comparison of the legacy system to BRS as well as some factors that may override what the numbers tell you you’re “supposed to do.” Our own BRS spreadsheet will be available for download to help you run your own numbers and quickly perform whatever “what if” analysis is relevant to you.
This webinar is for you if you haven’t opted in to BRS yet and want to make YOUR best decision, or if you’re in a position of leadership and people are looking to you for some guidance on their own decision.
