What Does Tax Reform Mean for Retirement Planning with IRAs of all Stripes?
This eight-hour CPE webinar led by experienced instructor and practitioner Bradley Burnett, J.D., LLM. is for anyone desiring to brush up on and deepen their knowledge of IRAs and Roth IRAs. Tightening down the hatches and intelligently using tax breaks to help leverage one's future is critical to being able to retire and retire well. This course locks down on building a future to count on via a thorough exploration of all tax and asset protection aspects, individual retirement accounts and related arrangements

What About Self-Directed IRAs?
Additionally, the webinar will dedicate a portion of the day to self-directed IRAs. Self-directed IRAs and other retirement arrangements are becoming more and more the rage and for good reason. Fortunes are to be made and kept. Or lost. Examples of how to be or not to be (answering Shakespeare’s question) are piling up. Are self-directed IRAs worth the risk? Oh yes, if approached properly. But, how to not detonate the explosives?
