About the Event

Our speakers will provide latest information about compliance with state residency rules, which many have learned about the hard way. With good intentions, they did all the things they thought they needed to do in order to take up residency outside of their old state: they filed affidavits of domicile in the new state, registered their automobiles, obtained new driver’s licenses, and registered to vote.

Unfortunately, most people aren’t aware that a residency determination is based on more than mere declarations or physical presence in the state. In a residency case, the burden of proof is on the taxpayer. Even after you’ve moved out of one state, if you maintain living quarters in that state and visit from time to time, you may still be considered a resident of that state for tax purposes.

Are you thinking about moving to a new state? Have you already moved but retain significant connections with your prior state? If so, you may be a prime target for an audit. As the best offense is a good defense, this seminar may be right for you.

While primary emphasis will be on New York State's approach to a residency issues, the concepts to be discussed are applicable throughout the United States.

This seminar will provide you with information that may help you protect your assets and avoid pitfalls when moving out of a state or maintaining dual residences:

  • How to Establish Residency in Florida for Tax Purposes
  • New Residency and Nonresident Allocation Issues
  • The Residency Audit Process
  • Proactive Preparation for Nonresident Audits
  • How a Florida Move will Impact Your Estate
  • Florida Homestead Rules
  • Protecting Your Assets and Trying to Reduce Tax on Transfers to Your Family

This seminar will also provide information on residency law for:

  • Individuals With Dual Residences
  • Non-Florida Residents
  • In-House Tax Counsel
  • Accountants and Tax Managers
  • Financial Planners
  • High-Net-Worth Individuals

All seminars are complimentary. Space is limited. Facilities are wheelchair accessible.
