How is your practice preparing for tomorrow? Adding the latest tech gadgets isn’t enough anymore. The tax profession is evolving in many aspects and at a rapid pace.

Recently, captive insurance has been a popular topic for discussion, particularly with respect to the IRS scrutiny and tax issues surrounding captives. However, not enough focus has been on the actual operations of captive insurers. Just because a captive insurance arrangement, on its face, appears to satisfy requirements of federal tax law, that does not necessitate that the actual operations of the captive insurer are in compliance with insurance regulations and industry best practices. In fact, most captives fail because of the lack of diligence in captive planning and attention to their operations. Attendees will hear practical information on what to look for in evaluating the operations of their clients’ captive insurers. Issues to be addressed include:
The formation and operations of the captive will be discussed. The appropriate role of the so-called “captive manager” will be discussed as well as the potential dangers of relying on unsophisticated managers for this critical administrative position. The many moving parts in the design, formation, and operations of a captive insurer and the appropriate qualifications for each role will be explained.
Three experts will offer their views, an open dialogue and an opportunity for you to ask tough tax policy questions. Veronique de Rugy is an economist, a nationally syndicated columnist and an active commentator on social and economic consequences of government tax and fiscal policies. Matthew Gardner has vast experience about state and local tax and funding options to provide public service. Harold Hancock served under Chairmen Camp, Ryan and Brady on the House Ways and Means Committee trying to balance, develop and translate ideas into tax laws to implement policy. Each presenter will offer their perspective on the state of the tax system.Speaker(s):
This session will discuss the current state of U.S. tax administration and the major challenges the IRS faces today as it attempts to administer the tax system. Major challenges include providing high-quality taxpayer service, assisting victims of tax-related identity theft, implementing legislation, conducting examination and collection initiatives that promote future voluntary compliance, and expanding the ability of taxpayers and preparers to conduct their business with the IRS online while simultaneously maintaining data security.Speaker(s):
