About the program…
The bizarre and sometimes flaming lead-in to the 2012 Election Year has all but hidden the real drama waiting to unfold in the second half of 2012.   Among the list of key issues ready to pop -- what will happen with the 2001 “Bush” Tax Cuts (including favorable rules for estate, gift and GST taxes, capital gains, dividends, etc.), as well as a huge array of other major “extender” items?   What are the near-term prospects of tax reform (such as the “Buffett Rule” or corporate tax reform)?  And when will it happen?   Are the national debt and deficit now yesterday’s issue, or will they continue to play a role?   Tax policy will be front-and-center in the general election, and will play a big a role in who gets elected; maybe even bigger than those who get elected will have on tax policy.   Come join a few-holds barred look forward at what promises to be a Perfect Storm – Tax and Politics on a Collision Course in the 2012 Election Year.
