CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE program in the area of tax law. This course will offer an introduction to the tax treatment of settlements and judgments for both payors and payees. It will cover basic considerations in determining whether a payment is taxable, and if so, whether it is taxable as ordinary income or as a capital gain. The seminar will also include an overview of when a payment is deductible by the payor, and the payer's withholding responsibilities. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on January 22, 2016. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.



Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:


  • Tax Treatment of Settlements

  • Is Settlement Taxable as Income?

  • Is Settlement Taxable as Capital Gain?

  • Withholding Responsibilities




The speaker for this course is Peter Marmo, who is an attorney with the firm of Crady, Jewett & McCulley, LLP in Houston. A more extensive biography for Mr. Marmo may be found at his firm's website.
