Program Summary

A contingent fee is always more valuable when the receipt of it is deferred. You pay tax later, you pay less tax now, and you defer tax on investment earnings. You can invest deferred fees using any number of arrangements. But no matter which arrangement is used, the basic steps to avoid immediate taxation are the same. This presentation will walk through the steps needed, why they’re important, and provide recommended language you can use.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • The benefits and basis of deferred taxation
  • Treatment of the various deferred options
  • Steps needed so your deferral works
