The current economic climate is challenging, to say the least: the market has yet to stabilize, unemployment rates are still high, and it is likely that a full recovery could take months or years. Within all of the unrest, there are silver linings when it comes to financial life management.



On June 9th, we held a webinar to discuss how you can capitalize on tax and estate planning opportunities in this economy. Specifically, we covered:

  • How low interest rates have created planning opportunities
  • Opportunities for profitable businesses that were impacted by COVID-19
  • Whether it’s time for your business to reconsider its choice of entity for tax purposes
