Post-Tax Season Debrief: New Developments in the Captive Insurance Space


CPAs, Micro-captive Insurance Managers and Agents, Businesses with Micro-captives


Tuesday, July 9th, 2019 from 12:00 – 1:00 PM CT

With tax season behind us, we would like to inform our CPA partners of a number of major developments that have recently taken effect in the captive insurance space.

As has been the case in recent years, the IRS has increased its scrutiny of micro-captive insurance companies, with the Service spending significant time and resources with regard to compliance and enforcement in this area. Non-compliance can lead to significant penalties from the IRS – and not just for clients with micro-captives, but potentially for financial advisors or for managers, promoters and agents dealing in this space.

To keep you up to date on the latest relevant regulations and court rulings, alliantNational, alliantgroup’s Washington national office, will be hosting a complimentary webinar covering the latest changes with regard to micro-captives and what steps you and your clients should be taking to ensure compliance with IRS guidelines. Please join us for an informative discussion that will focus on the potential of a formal global or appeals settlement offer, what is happening with regard to trends in litigation and whether the IRS will turn its sites on professional/financial advisors.

Please join us to hear the latest news from the captive insurance industry and how it will impact financial and captive insurance advisors and the industry at large.
