Selected Tax Issues in Divorce

Glenn Cooper, Principal

Glenn Cooper will participate in a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) event at the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland on March 16, 2020.

The CLE will cover next steps after receiving an IRS notice, as well as defenses, such as the elements of the innocent spouse defense. The CLE will also address key aspects of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 and recent changes to tax law, including the deductibility of alimony. Speakers will talk about the effect of these changes upon negotiations and structuring settlement agreements. Speakers will also discuss the dependency exemption (including what to do when the co-parent fraudulently claims it) and “head of household” filing status. Additionally, the CLE will speak to what happens to joint debt/assets when one spouse takes actions that fiscally as well as legally impact the other in terms of civil and criminal tax matters affecting their assets, income and bankruptcy. 

For more information, please visit the Bar Association of Montgomery County website.

Glenn is the Chair of the firm’s Litigation practice and senior partner in our Family Law practice.
