January 31, 2018
On Tuesday, President of Covisum Joe Elsasser, CFP® and Dave Cechanowicz, JD, MSFS, AIF®AEP and Senior Financial Planner with REDW Stanley presented a webinar, "Tax Law 2018: What Advisors Need to Know," to hundreds of advisors across the nation. PLANADVISOR's John Manganaro attended and wrote this piece summarizing the presentation: Advisors Beware and Be Cautious When Talking Taxes in 2018.
“There are tax-related competencies that are at the heart of what advisers do,” Elsasser said. “But that does not mean that we can provide advice that will serve as the basis for clients’ specific tax-related decisions.”
