Course Description

This webinar will go over Real Estate Partnerships with Conservation Easement Potential, which creates the possibility to protect America’s precious lands and wildlife species from commercial development.

We will also discuss the Restricted Property Trust as a fully discriminatory employee benefit plan that provides a 100% corporate tax deduction on the front end while providing the owner with the cash value/death benefit of a whole life policy. On the back end, this insurance policy offers the client a tax-exempt stream of supplemental income and a death benefit. This solution is highly effective for business owners.

Finally, we will go over the R&D Tax Credit, one of the least known and underclaimed incentives available to U.S. businesses. We will discuss qualifying research activities and provide specific examples.

Learning Objectives:


  • Recognize how individuals can secure a significant non-cash charitable contribution if their real estate partnerships vote to create conservation easement agreements

  • Identify how insurance policies can provide clients with a tax-exempt stream of supplemental income and a death benefit, a highly effective solution for business owners

  • Identify recent updates and amendments to tax legislation affecting the Employee Retention Credit that has increased the eligibility for U.S. businesses to claim cash for their businesses
