The Doctor Is in...But Where Is the Tax Advisor?

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Structuring a medical practice from a tax planning perspective is a niche market vastly underserved by tax and accounting practitioners, according to leading tax experts Alan Gassman and Lester Perling, who will host a new webinar from BNA Tax & Accounting entitled Individual and Group Medical Practices: Tax, Health Law, and Creditor Protection Planning.


Focusing on the physician practice market , the webinar, to be held on March 2, 2010, 1:00 p.m.2:30 p.m., ET will examine primary structures, health and tax law considerations, and both conventional and innovative planning opportunities that are not always obvious to legal, tax and accounting practitioners.

In 60 - 90 minutes, Gassman and Perling will offer practical advice on:

  • How medical practice and associated structuring is different than structuring for a typical or other professional closely held business
  • How to insulate medical practice entities from malpractice liability
  • How to coordinate practice and associated business and investment entity structuring with the Physician's personal planning
  • Compensation, dividend, and associated distribution planning
  • Planning ahead to reduce the transitional costs associated with bringing in a first new partner
  • Using New Parent F reorganizations
  • Reviewing common mistakes made by physicians and their advisors

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Choose and adapt appropriate business and investment structures for physician endeavors
  • Understand and recognize alternative opportunities
  • Communicate effectively with physician clients and their other advisors
  • Recognize traps for the unwary with respect to tax, creditor protection, and medical law planning

"The interplay between tax law, health law and creditor protection planning must be addressed with simple and logical solutions," says BNA Tax & Accounting senior tax analyst Harry Pskowski. "Education of and communication with clients and advisors is therefore absolutely critical."
