Reviewing the 2021 Federal Tax Return for Planning Opportunities

When:  Jun 28, 2022 from 13:00 to 14:00 (ET)
The June 2022 Tax & Estate Planning Knowledge Circle will be held on Tuesday, June 28th at 1 pm ET.

Guest speakers Roger Pine and Ben Birken with Holistiplan will be presenting, "Reviewing the 2021 Federal Tax Return for Planning Opportunties."

Conducting tax return reviews is a high-value activity that allows you to present clients with real money-saving strategies year after year. But with tax returns changing almost every year, it’s important to have an updated checklist. In this presentation, Holistiplan will pull the curtain back and go through our fully updated, crowd-sourced 2021 tax return review checklist and demonstrate how you can automate reviews to help you serve more clients in a systematic, scalable way. And as a bonus, we’ll make the checklist available to all attendees at the end of the event!
