Eric NicollAt our next Atlanta REIA Movers and Shakers Lunch Meeting on Monday, March 21st at 11:00 AM at 5 Seasons Brewing in Alpharetta, we’ll be talking all about taxes!  2010 was a year of change with respect to tax law with a couple major iterations of new law and then an end of year “back-up” that left a great deal of the “old” law still in place.  This has caused a great deal of discussion and confusion.   Our special guest speaker on Monday will be Eric Nicoll, CPA, who will discuss all the changes thoroughly to show WHAT has changed and WHEN it will take effect.

Additionally, Eric likes to work with investors towards a mind-set of building wealth.  We will touch on several subjects with the intention of becoming aware of the issues:  Timing of Income Strategies; Character of Income Strategies; the effect of Social Security Taxes; Benefits of Long-Term Capital Rates; Installment Sales; Tax-Deferred Sales; Other Tax-deferred strategies. Tax season is upon us, so this is an informational and networking meeting you don’t want to miss!
