Program Content

This online learning program, presented as a live webcast, will be also archived for QAS Self Study. The program will be available for viewing for 12 months after the live webcast. A panel of IRS and industry experts will present the content during a live, interactive discussion, where participant questions can be submitted. Questions will be answered live on the program or posted on the Resources page.

The program, through a lively round-table discussion and real time interaction with the audience, looks at the tax issues that confront the baby boomer generation. The program will focus on tax issues that arise for seniors who may face declining earned income and an increasing reliance on savings and retirement plan drawdowns. Panelists will also examine issues of concern to seniors who are still struggling with offspring attending college. Downsizing is another facet of aging Boomers may face, so the panel also will explore tax issues arising from home sales or other means of financing the golden years.

By the end of the program, participants will have a practical understanding, through accurate, current, and effectively designed communications, of the major tax issues confronting the members of the Baby Boom generation.
