The daylong program will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the two morning panel discussions will focus on 2012 income tax developments and recent developments in estate planning.

Eric Solomon, director of national tax services for Ernst & Young and former assistant secretary for tax policy at the U.S. Treasury, will serve as the event’s distinguished speaker. He will talk from 12:45 to 1:45 p.m.

The afternoon will also include panel discussions on trends in federal and state audits, and on tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush – which were extended under President Obama – that are set to expire at the end of 2012.

The program is suitable for accountants, tax professionals, attorneys, educators, and professionals from financial institutions, including banking, insurance and retirement brokerages. It has been approved for seven continuing legal education credits in Delaware and Pennsylvania (no ethics). New Jersey attorneys can self report to their state continuing legal education board with a Widener Law certificate of attendance. Accountants who attend will also be eligible for continuing professional education, or CPE, credits.

The registration fee is $195 for those who attend for continuing education credits, and $150 for Widener Law alumni. The fee includes lunch. The program is free for students and members of the public who do not seek continuing education credits, although without lunch and conference materials.
