to Your Clients and Prospects?

(By advising them right away, before your competitors do!)

November 6, 2012 may prove to be one of the most important election days in U.S. history, at least from a tax perspective.  Regardless of who wins the Presidency and who controls the Senate and House, we are likely to see the first major changes to the U.S. Tax Code in over ten years.

Accordingly, there is no better time than immediately after the election to advise your clients and prospects on what important steps to take before the tax law changes in 2013.

Keebler, CPA, MST, AEP (Distinguished) and Martin S. Shenkman, J.D., CPA, MBA - - to evaluate the likely impact of the election on current and future tax laws and identify exactly what you should immediately advise your clients and prospects to do.
