Jones Walker LLP Tax Team members Bill Backstrom and Hugh Seligman will speak at the NYU 2017 Summer Institute in Taxation Conference July 17-28, 2017.

Bill will speak on corporate and other business activity taxes including allocation and apportionment, UDITPA, return filings, NOLs, and credits. Hugh’s session entitled “Post-Mortem Income Tax Planning for Closely-Held Companies” will focus on on the income tax issues that arise from a decedent owning an interest in a partnership or S corporation at death. The topics addressed include elections to mitigate income tax, funding of bequests, utilization of losses accrued prior to death, post-death sales of company interests and application of the net investment income tax.
