HOUSTON, Aug. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — In the wake of the U.S. Tax Court’s long-awaited ruling in the case of Avrahami v. Commissioner, alliantgroup will be hosting a free webinar for CPAs next week to discuss the implications of the ruling on the captive insurance industry. This webinar will qualify attendees for 1 hour of CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credit.

The presentation, “The World After Avrahami,” will take place on Tuesday, August 29th at 12:00 pm CT and will be hosted by Steven Miller, former IRS Acting Commissioner and alliantgroup National Director of Tax, and John Dies, alliantgroup Managing Director of Tax Controversy.

Avrahami is the first major case in the area of micro-captive insurance and will have substantial implications for the industry. During this presentation, Miller and Dies will cover the Tax Court’s decision, how the findings will influence the immediate future of the industry and the steps that should be taken to ensure future compliance with the ruling.

“While certainly not as broad of an opinion as we would have hoped in terms of guidance, the Avrahami ruling does provide some important insight into how the IRS and the Tax Court view specific aspects of micro-captive compliance,” said alliantgroup CEO, Dhaval Jadav. “I encourage our CPA partners, micro-captive insurance managers and agents and anyone involved in this space to attend this webinar. My colleagues Steven Miller, John Dies and the rest of our alliantNational office are among the foremost experts in this area.”
