NYU-School of Continuing and Professional Studies to Host 72nd Institute on Federal Taxation during October and November

Top Industry Experts from Across the Country to Examine Key Issues and Trends during Bi-Coastal Events

NEW YORK, October 9, 2013—Tax practitioners can stay up-to-date while hearing from America's leading tax experts during the 72nd Institute on Federal Taxation conference, presented by the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) Department of Finance and Law Programs.

The week-long conference is offered on both coasts–Oct. 20-25 at the Grand Hyatt New York, and Nov. 17-22 at The Fairmont San Francisco. Participants can choose to attend any number of days, or the entire week, at either the New York or California location. The Conference brings together tax practitioners from around the country to learn about new practices in federal taxation, to exchange ideas, and to stay on top of the latest tax trends and developments.

"Aimed at the practitioner who handles federal tax matters and needs to keep up-to-date with current thinking , the Institute on Federal Taxation conference provides updates on cutting-edge issues, practical advice, and detailed analysis and commentary from leading experts," noted Julia Miller, director of NYU-SCPS noncredit finance and law programs. "For instance, after the Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, benefit eligibility for same-sex spouses is an area that employers and practitioners will need to address," she offered as an example.

The Institute is intended for attorneys who are both general tax practitioners and specialists; accountants; corporate treasury and compliance executives; tax managers; and financial planners, who seek expert discussion of the latest technical, legislative, and planning developments.

Participants can obtain credit for continuing education, along with the tools and the strategies needed to help save their clients' tax dollars and provide them with better service. The program encompasses all major areas of tax, including:

  • current developments
  • tax controversies
  • corporate tax
  • partnerships, LLCs, and real estate
  • trusts and estates
  • executive compensation and employee benefits
  • closely-held businesses
  • international tax, including structuring foreign acquisitions
  • ethical transactions
  • hot tax topics

New this year, all registrants will receive complimentary downloads of the conference course materials prior to the Institute, as well as complimentary attendance for a mid-year audio conference, covering critical new tax developments.
