Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

How have changes in federal and state tax law affected the purchase or sale of a business? CPA Andrew Moore will speak at the May 28 Georgia Association of Business Brokers meeting about those changes as well as other tax programs that affect both buyers and sellers of businesses.

Moore, Senior Manager of the Tax Department at Frazier and Deeter, will discuss film credits, low income housing credits, opportunity funds, and syndicated conservation easement transactions, all of which can lower the taxes due after the sale of a business.

The Georgia Association of Business Brokers meets at conference room hosted by the Georgia Association of Realtors at 6065 Barfield Road, Sandy Springs, GA, 30328. The monthly GABB meeting is free and open to the public and is preceded at 9:45 a.m. by a free light breakfast and networking session.  The meeting will last from about 10:30 to somewhere between 11:30 and noon. Guests should register to attend the meeting at the GABB website.
