The NYU School of Professional Studies Institute on Federal Taxation is designed for the practitioner who must frequently anticipate and handle federal tax matters. It provides high-level updates, practical advice you can implement, and in-depth analysis of the latest trends and developments from leading experts.

While it has been a difficult decision to make, after careful consideration and to ensure the health and safety of conference attendees and panelists in light of the continuing restrictions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Institute’s Advisory Board has chosen to cancel the on-site events that were scheduled at the Grand Hyatt New York on October 18-23, 2020 and at the Hotel Del Coronado on November 15-20, 2020 and to replace the in-person events with an online webinar series that will occur during the week of November 16-20, 2020.


NEW WEBINAR SERIES – WEEK OF NOVEMBER 16-20, 2020


A total of 10 individual online webinars, currently being planned by the Institute Chairs, will take place during the week of November 16-20, 2020. The November webinar series will include sessions on current developments; tax controversies; corporate tax; partnerships, LLCs, and real estate; trusts and estates; executive compensation and employee benefits; closely-held businesses; partnerships audits; international tax; and ethical transactions, and will do so at a time that is critical for tax professionals to gain the latest information on trends and forecasts from the best in the field. Just days after the Presidential Election, these sessions will include very topical discussions of the major federal tax policies and proposals in light of the 2020 election results. More details and link to register will follow.


The Institute on Federal Taxation is hosted by NYU SPS and the Division of Programs in Business. We educate leaders in the functional areas of a business. Our portfolio of graduate, continuing education, and executive programs prepares students to drive innovative organizational and societal growth on a global scale.

As esteemed supporters of our conferences, we ask that you consider making a gift to support our division with a gift to our conference fund. A gift of any amount will make an immense impact on our cost to host our annual tax conferences each year, and also allows us to provide financial hardship discounts and scholarships to those attorneys and accountants that need assistance to cover the conference fees.

Agenda

The Institute addresses all major areas of taxation and attracts attorneys, both general tax practitioners and specialists; accountants; corporate treasury and compliance executives; tax managers; and financial planners seeking expert discussion of the latest technical, legislative, and planning developments. The Institute is designed for the practitioner who must frequently anticipate and handle federal tax matters. It provides high-level updates, practical advice you can implement, and in-depth analysis of the latest trends and developments from leading experts. Attendees return to work with a wealth of materials, plus the tools and the strategies needed to help save their clients’ tax dollars and provide them with better service. Just as important, the Institute provides the perfect setting to meet practitioners from around the country. It's an opportunity for you to share ideas, exchange views, learn what others are doing, and obtain credit for continuing education.

The 2021 Agenda will be available in summer 2021.

The Hotel del Coronado

The Hotel del Coronado, a national landmark, is one of the largest beach resorts on the North American Pacific Coast and is situated conveniently near the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. To provide a quality Institute at the best possible cost NYU has negotiated special room rates and has committed to a block of rooms at the Hotel del Coronado. We ask you to support NYU by reserving your sleeping accommodations within the room block. Your support allows us to keep our registration fees reasonable.

For the 2020 San Diego conference, single- or double-occupancy rooms are available at the NYU group rate of $284 by calling 800-468-3533. Resort rooms at $327 are also available. In addition to the rates set forth above, the Hotel del Coronado has a daily resort fee of $25 per room, per night charge that covers a number of hotel services and amenities that would customarily be charged to each guest individually. We urge you to make your hotel and travel plans early to avoid disappointment. Hotel rooms can sell out prior to the cut-off date. These rooms will be held as a block, unless exhausted, until October 13, 2020, at which time they will be released to the general public.
