Fran Obeid to moderate CLE Program at the New York City Bar on March 5, 2009

On March 5, 2009 Fran Obeid will moderate The Hidden Cost of a Second Home.  The panel will include: Bruce Kato, New York State's Deputy Director of Special Investigation; John Coniglio, Esq., New York State Audit Division; Gilda Mariani, Chief of the Money Laundering & Tax Crimes Unit at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and Jack Trachtenberg, Esq. from Hodgson & Russ.  The panel will discuss New York State and New York City residency and domicile rules.  There will be an interactive discussion based upon a fact pattern that evolves from a civil tax audit inquiry to a criminal investigation and ultimately referral by a prosecutor.  It will conclude with a summary of how to advise clients on how a second residence may have unintended consequences on New York State or New York City income taxes.
