BV experts can now get an insider’s perspective on the Pension Protection Act of 2006

BVWireIssue #78-2
March 11, 2009

The Pension Protection Act (PPA) of 2006 presented new guidelines by which business appraisers and CPAs operate, most notably increasing the penalties these professionals can suffer. Since its passage three year ago, new guidelines and regulations have clarified appraiser penalties, while altering the rules by which they operate. Clearly, though, there is a trade off between an increase in business and what is required of appraisers. A depth of knowledge and perspective, therefore, can mean the difference between penalty and prosperity.

IRS New Rules: Pension Protection Act and Beyond, a 100-minute BVR teleconference, will feature an all-star panel—tax attorney William Forsberg, Internal Revenue Service territory director Michael Gregory, the Institute of Business Appraisers’ executive director Howard Lewis, and business appraisal expert and moderator Robert Cimasi, president of St. Louis, Missouri’s Health Capital Consultants. The panel’s diverse viewpoints will give the guidance all BV practitioners need. This teleconference will take place on Thursday, March 18 from 10:00am-11:40am PST/1:00pm-2:40pm EST. Attendees can receive 2 CPE and/or 1.5 CLE credits. To find out more or to register, click here.
