If you missed our Feb luncheon, you missed a very informative presentation by Ira Siegel, a CPA with Carpenter & Langford. Ira reviewed the important income tax breaks that Congress passed last year, including making permanent some enhancements to the child tax credit and earned income tax credit, business investment provisions, and the deduction for local and state sales taxes. More importantly, Ira patiently answered questions from those of us who don’t wear green eye shades.
Our Mar meeting features Peter Pfeiffer, the founding principal of the Austin-based architectural firm Barley & Pfeiffer Architects. Peter has been a leader in the green-building field since 1987 and was named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2004 for his lifelong achievements in “Mainstreaming Green”. . He will provide some historical context for Austin’s leadership in green building and discuss a pragmatic approach that considers benefits and costs.
