Freda to Speak on New York State & Local Tax

The New York City Bar Association (City Bar), founded in 1870 in response to growing public concern over corruption in the justice system in New York City, is a voluntary association of lawyers and law students. Since 1896, the organization, officially known as the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, has been headquartered in a landmark building on 44th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Manhattan. Today the City Bar has over 24,000 members. The City Bar’s member services include career development workshops; networking events; a Small Law Firm Center; the Lawyer Assistance Program, which provides free counseling for members and their families struggling with substance abuse or mental health issues; a law library; discounts on Continuing Legal Education courses; insurance and other benefits.

Ray Freda will be presenting Basic Tax for Individuals and Businesses Coming into New York on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. This program is designed to provide practitioners with a basic framework for understanding the various state and local taxes that both individuals and business will be subject to when establishing a presence in New York. For practitioners representing individual clients, the course will cover the current income tax implications of residency as well as longer-term estate tax consequences. For practitioners representing businesses, the course will cover the myriad of direct and indirect tax obligations that arise when doing business in the Empire State. In addition, time will be devoted to discussing some of the State and City credit and incentive programs, including the well-publicized “Start-Up NY” program.
