    Part I: The Art Fisher

    Art Fisher has been a real estate investor for ten years now. He wants to share highlights from this past decade,
    including the good, the bad, and the exceptionally bad.
    There’s one story in particular we want you to hear. MassLandlords emcee Rich Merlino suggested this portion could be called,
    “How the courts can eff up your entire business and life.”
    Enough time has passed where Art is willing to share what happened so we can all be better for it.

    Part II: The Biggest Tax Changes in 40 Years

    This is the main part of the evening.

    The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 is taking effect on the returns we’ll soon be filing. Overall for investors, the changes are favorable.
    We want to cover a variety of topics including changes to Section 1031 exchanges, pass-through entity tax credits, changes to the standard deduction,
    and a wide variety of other issues you should be aware of to maximum your tax savings from real estate.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Steven Thebodo, CPA.
    Steve has been with O’Connor, Maloney & Company, P.C. since 2001.
    He provides clients with tax advice and preparation services, financial statement preparation,
    accounting, auditing and consulting services.
    He graduated from Assumption College in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in accounting.
    Steve is past president of the Worcester Young Businessman’s Association and Spencer Exchange Club.
    He is the assistant treasurer of Girl’s, Inc. of Worcester and a member of the East Brookfield planning board.
    Steve was named to Worcester Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty in 2013. He has spoken at MassLandlords Worcester before
    and earned high marks.

    One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA

    One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA

    Part I:

    Whether you get through life as a landlord never having to evict anyone, or you’re in court every week, there’s always something to learn from a landlord-tenant attorney talking about eviction and court cases more generally.
    In this part of the presentation, we’ll be covering do’s and dont’s of civil procedure (summary process, aka eviction). We’ll share the best tips and tricks to make a compelling case to the mediator, the clerk magistrate, the judge, or the jury, as the case may be.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Attorney Adam Sherwin. Attorney Sherwin is a Google five-star attorney over seven reviews, has assisted with the MassLandlords crash course, and has been admitted to five bars (MA, NY, VT, US MA, and US Appeals First Circuit).

    Note: We had previously advertised that Cambridge Inspectional Services would be visiting us. They have rescheduled for March.
