About This Webinar:

This event covers recent tax changes that impact your client’s finances.

Specifically, this webinar addresses the tax implications of stimulus checks, unemployment, the increase to standard deductions, changes to key provisions for popular tax credits, contribution limits and income thresholds for retirement accounts like IRAs and 401(k)s,  increases in other tax-favored accounts for healthcare and education, and exemptions from gift and estate tax, tax brackets for ordinary income, as well as qualified dividends and long-term capital gains.

Notably, for our military audience, this webinar provides a comprehensive overview of the resources and services available to military families through MilTax,  the only tax preparation and filing software provided by the Department of Defense designed exclusively for the military community from Military OneSource.

  2. Good evening,

    I am having troubles getting into these classes. I have issues with my time zone there by making it difficulty for me to get into right class at a specify time.

  3. Thanks for sharing this useful information, Sarah. I hope you will consider sharing this during the webinar with other participants via the chat pod so that more financial educators can become aware of this program.
    Thank you!
    – Molly

  4. Hello, I noticed that the training will have info about MilTax for DoD. Wanted to mention that for Coast Guard members (that can’t use Military OneSource), they get the same service from CG SUPRT.
