The Memphis Business Journal’s Table of Experts discussion for March 2016 focused on Tax & Investments. Eustis Corrigan, Senior Managing Director for the Memphis Office of CBIZ & MHM served as the tax panelist.  Other panelists included Becky Bridgmon of Morgan Stanley and Staci Jackson of Paragon Bank.

Moderated by Bryce Corporation’s CFO Ramon Marus, the discussion started off with a reference to the ‘year of uncertainty’ in 2016.  Eustis shared how businesses are strengthening their balance sheets and making wise investments in the midst of an ‘uncertain year’ with a potential recession ahead.  When asked about changes in the tax law that could affect businesses this year, Eustis mentioned the PATH Act, R&D tax credit, Section 179 deduction, and charitable distribution change with IRAs.

Specifically referencing the R&D tax credit, Corrigan stated “In a year of uncertainty, we have more certainty long term because many tax credits are now permanent.  It used to be that the credit would get close to expiring each year and taxpayers and accounting firms would be on pins and needles waiting for Congress to extend it. Now it’s permanent.”

In further discussion, Eustis shared how current tax laws are affecting them, the tax advantages of 401k participation, and the importance of strategy in tax planning.

This year's Super Women in Business Awards was a memorable event recognizing the Mid-South's most influential women in business.  As a sponsor of the awards since its inception in 2012, we are proud to spotlight women playing a role in the success of their businesses and helping make the Memphis community a success through their involvement.

The awards luncheon was held at Hilton Memphis on Friday, August 28th. With 450 people in attendance, the crowd was energized as each Super Woman took the stage to accept a plaque and pink cape as well as to share ten words that described their idea of a "Super Woman," their award dedication, or their commitment to the city of Memphis. Though each woman's words were thoughtfully crafted, many chose to say more than their allotted ten words, and in doing so, donated a women’s clothing item for each word over ten to the DeNeuville Learning Center. Perhaps the most memorable selection came from Estella Mayhue-Greer of Mid-South Food Bank (pictured above right) when she said "To my family, you are the wind beneath my cape!"
