The Delaware campus will present the upcoming Delaware Tax Institute program “Windows of Opportunity: Tax Planning in Times of Transition,” on Friday, Nov. 18 in the school’s Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom.

The daylong program will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the two morning panel discussions will focus on 2011 income tax developments and recent developments in estate planning.

Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and director of the fiscal policy program at the New America Foundation, will serve as the event’s distinguished speaker. She will give her remarks from 2:20 to 3:20 p.m.

The afternoon will also include breakout discussions on business tax planning, the fiduciary duties of officers and more.

The program is suitable for accountants, tax professionals, attorneys, educators, and professionals from financial institutions, including banking, insurance and retirement brokerages.

The program has been approved for seven continuing legal education credits in Delaware and Pennsylvania, including one ethics credit. Accountants who attend will also be eligible for continuing professional education, or CPE, credits.

The registration fee is $195 for those who attend for continuing education credits, and $150 for Widener Law alumni. The fee includes lunch. The program is free for students and members of the public who do not seek continuing education credits, although without lunch and conference materials.
