DGC was proud to partner with the Boston Bar Association for a webinar on September 16th, "Why Now is the Time to Gift Assets at Lower Valuations." This webinar was open to non-BBA members as well as BBA members.
Laura Barooshian, CPA, MST, AEP®, CAP, Kimberley Train, CPA, ABV, Jon Klerowski, CPA, ABV, CFE, and Sahri Zeger, JD, MBA, members of DGC’s Private Client Group and Advisory Practice, discussed how high lifetime gift exemptions coupled with lower asset values create a unique opportunity to leverage and efficiently transfer assets—and why now is the time to act! Ensuring that assets are valued appropriately is essential to achieving the maximum benefit of these gifting strategies.
Now is the time for planning because of the convergence of several events: The current economic environment, the upcoming election, market volatility and the availability to gift tax-free. In the clip below, Laura Barooshian discusses the lifetime gift exemption and what we can expect going forward.
