"Assessment Practices in Connecticut"
Speakers: Laura A. Bellotti, Attorney, Pullman & Comley, LLC
and Greg Servodidio, Attorney, Pullman & Comley, LLC
Connecticut property owners and businesses pay some of
the highest real and personal property taxes in the nation. It
is no wonder property tax reform and assessment practices
are a constant topic of conversation. This program will be a
discussion of the assessment process, challenging real and
personal property values in excess of market values, person-
al property audits, and recent legislative developments and
court decisions impacting established assessment practices.

"Connecticut Tax Changes"
Speaker: Leslie E. Grodd, Esq.,
Attorney, Halloran & Sage, LLP
The program discusses the changes to Connecticut income
(personal and corporate), sales, and estate and gift taxes
made by the recently enacted legislation reflecting
Governor Dannel Malloy's budget. As a result of higher
Connecticut personal income and estate taxes, many tax-
payers are electing to establish residency elsewhere; the
program will discuss advising clients on how to succeed in
any challenge by the DRS as to such new residency if they
retain a house in Connecticut.
