NHCRA CLE on Self-Employed Obligors, Divorce Tax Issues & Business Valuation

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Join fellow mediators and attorneys for a CLE with our amazing and experienced faculty of Richard J. Maloney, CPA, Esq., Melissa Laverty, Enrolled Agent with the IRS, and Heather Krans, Esq.

While we as mediators may only have basic knowledge of business valuation, this course will assist us in becoming familiar with valuation topics such as in depth review of tax returns and financial statements and determining when to recommend to parties or clients that they should invest in a valuation of a family business.

This course will also cover how to break down self-employed obligor income for purposes of child support and alimony calculation.  There will be an analysis of the child support guidelines worksheet with details of tax reporting included.  Our panel will also cover litigation tips on how to show the Court the presense of hidden income.

In depth discussion of pre- and post-divorce tax issues, including filing status, exemptions, itemized deductions, and alimony treatment will be included.  Learn about the elusive “innocent spouse treatment” from the IRS and how your clients could benefit from it.

Bring your real life examples or case studies for discussion with our diverse panel– questions and hypotheticals will be welcomed.
