Divorce is an emotionally charged event, especially when there is lot of money at stake, and even more so when you are concerned that there is a lot of money at stake and are not sure how to prove it -- something which is becoming more of a challenge in today’s business environment of creative compensation packages and small businesses. To further complicate matters, practitioners need to know how to explain to a divorcing client the tax realities to avoid any post-divorce tax surprises.

Join our panel of experts as they discuss in detail:

  • How to pluck out of a complicated tax return the dollars which should be added into a person’s income for purposes of calculating support
  • How to recognize when components of income are being disguised and/or manipulated
  • How to read and recognize income on a K-1
  • Creative components of high-end earner compensation, such as stock vehicles, incentive income and bonuses, phantom income, fringe benefits, retirement and severance packages, and “golden parachutes”
  • Creative payroll, business expense and balance sheet management techniques
  • Special tax and transferability considerations which come into play when considering these types of compensation and in allocating these kinds of assets
