Complex Family Law Trial Issues, Part Two: “Simple Answers to complex tax issues in practice and trial”

The divorce process often creates tax problems, which require intricate knowledge of both family law and the tax code to solve. In this interactive program, our presenters discuss the rules every attorney must know when dividing community property or making spousal support awards. Issues include non-reported income, filing status, perqs, innocent spouse, liquidating 401K/IRA, Duke Order, non-citizens, shifting taxes, carryforwards, and recapture. CFLS Christopher Melcher, and Judge Lon Hurwitz, show you how to avoid the tax pitfalls associated with division of property and spousal support, and how to effectively present tax issues at trial.
