Some Like It Hot and Saving a Fortune

Albuquerque, N.M.—What could possibly be the connection between the movies and preparing an estate tax return? Keith Schiller, Esq., author of Estate Planning at the Movies®–Art of the Estate Tax Return will illustrate this connection at the 2012 Tax Symposium to be held Friday, Sept. 7, at the State Bar Center in Albuquerque. The State Bar Taxation Section will co-sponsor this continuing legal education program for interested members of the legal community.

Schiller entertains with cinematic references to illustrate strategic analyses for preparation and presentation of the estate tax return, all of which are designed to save clients money and enhance an attorney’s practice. He reveals the traps and explores the nuances of law and procedure that enter into the preparation and defense of Form 706.

The State Bar Taxation Section seeks to expand tax knowledge among section members, act as liaison between the State Bar and public officials involved in the taxing process, and enhance tax awareness of the State Bar and general public.
