When Jan 27 12:00 PM
Mark Ierardi, JD CPA and Lynn Malzone Ierardi, JD

Join the College for a special virtual opportunity with Lynn Malzone Ierardi, JD, Gift Planning Advisor, and Mark J. Ierardi, JD CPA, Tax Director at Grant Thornton, as they share tax tips and trends in celebration of the launch of the Stahl Legacy Society.

There have been many tax changes in the last few years—including a few enacted in response to the pandemic. How will your 2020 income tax return be impacted by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the SECURE Act, and the CARES Act? What tax changes might we see as we look forward—and how might those changes affect you? This session will provide an overview.

The 1-hour talk begins promptly at noon EST and will include time for questions. This event is free and open to the public.
