On Friday, November 10, over 150 attorneys gathered at Saint Clements Castle in Portland, CT for the 2017 Federal Tax Institute of New England. Founded by Frank S. Berall in 2011 and chaired by tax law veteran Deborah J. Tedford, attendees spent the day receiving a comprehensive education from national speakers presenting on cutting edge tax and estate planning issues that may have occurred within the past year, as well as ideas to improve their practice and service to their clients.
Seminar topics varied from how to achieve tax free compounding, important issues in special needs trusts, ethics in tax practice, and a Washington update of tax changes ten months into the Trump administration.
This year’s CBA faculty speakers included: Commissioner Kevin B. Sullivan, Marcel J. Bernier, K. Bradoc “Brad” Gallant, Rebecca A. Iannantuoni, Daniel G. Johnson, Peter S. Jongbloed, Katherine A. McAllister, Lisa E. Perkins, Daniel M. Smolnik, Michael P. Spiro, and Barbara Taylor.
