Are you ready for 2011 tax law changes?
From press release
The end of the “Bush Era Tax Cuts” is set to close with the end of 2010. That means higher income taxes for many working Americans and higher estate taxes when a loved one passes away. This is the topic of free workshops to be held Dec. 9 and 10 by The Gummow Wealth Advisory Group.
“For a single mom with two kids making $40,000 a year, she will pay $1,400 more in taxes next year,” said Bradley Gummow, senior vice president at The Gummow Group of Stifel, Nicolaus and Company, and speaker at the event. “The end of these tax cuts means big dollars for many people, and we want them to be prepared and ready with the knowledge they need.”
Gummow Wealth Advisory Group of Stifel, Nicolaus and Company will address the 2011 tax law changes at their free workshops at noon Thursday, Dec. 9, and again at 5:30 p.m. at their Rockford office, 6952 Rote Road in Rockford off Perryville Road. An additional workshop will be offered at noon, Friday, Dec. 10, at their Beloit, Wis., office, 400 E. Grand Ave.
Seating is limited, and reservations are being accepted by calling (815) 654-5500 or the 24-hour reservation hotline at (866) 599-7254.
