Topic: Property Tax Considerations for Tax Planners

Our October event will be a Property Tax Considerations…for tax planners, presented by a new-to-GLB speaker, Ken Ziskin, attorney at law. Attendees will learn about the major exclusions from reassessment under Prop 13 and related statutes, cases and interpretations, as well as proper reporting requirements. Tips for planning and traps to avoid reassessment will be covered along with basic concepts related to property tax reassessment and exclusions therefrom.

Presenter: Kenneth A. Ziskin, Esq.

Ken Ziskin received his J.D. degree from the University of Southern California Law Center in 1972, where he served as Executive Editor of the Southern California Law Review and a member of the Order of the Coif national honor society. Ken served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California Law Center from 1991 to 1994. He has been a frequent lecturer to legal professionals, financial institution regulators, charitable organizations and the public, and served on the Editorial Staff of the California Trusts and Estate Quarterly. He served two terms as a member of the Financial Institutions Committee of the State Bar of California and on numerous advisory committees and task forces set up by bank regulatory agencies. He was a member of the task force which rewrote the California Financial Code in the late 1970's. Ken has testified as an expert in Federal Court, and been designated as an expert in several state court matters. Ken was one of the first estate planning lawyers to become a Fellow of the Esperti Peterson Institute for estate planning for high net worth individuals and families. He is an active member of the WealthCounsel - an organization of more than 2000 estate planning attorneys who work together as colleagues — not competitors — to advance their education and competence as estate planners. Ken is the author of numerous articles on estate planning, financial, tax and securities law matters which have appeared in such journals as TRUSTS & ESTATES, The Journal of the California State Bar Association, CONSPECTUS, The Tax Lawyer, The American Banker, The Southern California Law Review and the WIB Community Banker. He appeared regularly on The Business Channel (KWHY - TV 22) from 1996-1999, where he developed and hosted the “Beyond the Living Trust (sm)” show on Family Wealth Strategies (sm) and living trusts. Ken is happily married to Hinda, with whom he is proud to share three wonderful children and one (vivacious and bright) granddaughter. Hinda participates in planning for Ken’s clients, providing a valuable perspective as a wife, mother and grandmother. Hinda has one other advantage: She is not a lawyer, and helps translate legal jargon into plain English. Ken thinks Hinda is both brilliant and beautiful!
