The Southeastern Association of Law Schools 2012 Annual Conference continues today in Amelia Island, Florida with this tax panel:
Economic Challenges and Charitable Organizations: This panel focuses on the challenges pro-poor organizations face in light of global economic instability. Issues that will be discussed include the impact of a down economy on charitable organizations from a trusts and estates perspective, the fact that current theories regarding the charitable deduction fail to take into account changes in the wider economy (along with suggested revisions to the tax rules governing charitable deductions), the role of U.S. tax incentives on the microfinance initiatives found in developing nations, and the potential impact of proposed legislation on the charitable donations of high-income taxpayers.
