/EINPresswire.com/ Alpern Rosenthal’s Tax Services Group hosted a tax forum on Wednesday, December 5, 2012, on The Impact of the Upcoming Fiscal Cliff.

As Washington continues on in search of a solution to the looming “fiscal cliff”—the end-of-the-year deadline for bringing spending in line, under threat of massive across-the-board spending cuts that many fear could endanger the current weak recovery—Alpern Rosenthal brought together all of its ongoing analysis to one place. Nearly 90 participants attended the 3-hour seminar, which was held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Green Tree.

Stuart Hoffman, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at The PNC Financial Services Group, was the featured speaker. He talked about the Economic Forecast for 2013. Several tax shareholders from Alpern Rosenthal also participated as speakers. The agenda was as follows:
