The event is geared toward business owners, and will focus on maximizing profits when businesses are sold and decreasing tax liability when they are passed on to the next generation.

“Passing a closely held business to the next generation or selling outright are fraught with pitfalls. Our expert panel will share war stories of mistakes we have witnessed and provide tips on maximizing the value of your business while minimizing taxes,” says the description on the Facebook event page posted by Chapin Hill Advisors.

Kathy Boyle of Chapin Hill Advisors is the lead organizer of the event, being held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the meeting room at Ridgefield Supply Company, located at 29 Prospect St. in Ridgefield.
