Taxes are a fact of life in America, and so is our right to complain about them. Two Above Board Chamber of Florida seminars will cover the rules regarding 2018 federal tax reform and the First Amendment, respectively.
Guests at the chamber’s March 8 luncheon in Fort Myers will gain a fuller understanding of what the First Amendment means to them. Master of ceremonies Tom Hayden, senior engagement editor for The News-Press, will direct a panel with Bill Barker, publisher for The News-Press and the Naples Daily News; NBC-2 anchor Kellie Burns; Julie Glenn, host of “Gulf Coast Live” for WGCU-FM; and attorney Henry Lee Paul, a former member of the Florida Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism. The forum goes from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Pelican Preserve Town Center on 10561 Veneto Drive.
Another set of experts will delve into the latest tax law changes in a March 12 luncheon at the Hilton Naples. Amy Oshier, “Behind the Headlines” anchor for the Naples Daily News, will serve as master of ceremonies for a discussion with tax attorney Cathrine A. Hunter of Woodward, Pires & Lombardo, P.A.; Marc Whitfield, tax manager for the accounting firm of Stroemer & Company LLC; and Nace Cohen, president and founder of 1031 Exchange, a real estate and personal property consulting firm. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
