Webinar | The Window of Tax Opportunity

    | May 25, 2021

    During his campaign, President Biden promised changes to the tax code, and with the White House and both chambers of Congress under Democratic control, those changes could be coming soon. In addition to the president’s recent proposal to update capital gains tax rates to match income tax brackets, two bills have been introduced in the Senate that would drastically change estate and gift tax laws.


    On Monday, May 24th, Richard Schloss of Dawda, Mann, Mulcahy & Sadler joined Telemus advisors Lyle Wolberg and Ari Fischman to discuss how these proposed changes could affect your wealth management and tax planning strategy. Specifically, they reviewed:

    • The details of Biden’s proposal and the two bills recently introduced in the Senate
    • How this legislation would affect tax and estate planning
    • What steps you can take to prepare for the possibility of a new tax landscape
