40th Annual Institute on State and Local Taxation To Proceed Virtually Dec 13-15, 2021

The annual NYU School of Professional Studies Institute on State and Local Taxation addresses all major areas of taxation and attracts attorneys, accountants, state tax officials, tax directors, tax managers and anyone seeking expert discussion on the latest technical, legislative, and planning developments.

The Institute is designed for the practitioner who must frequently anticipate and handle state and local tax matters. It provides high-level updates, practical advice you can implement, and in-depth analysis of the latest developments and current issues in all areas of state and local taxation. Attendees learn practical solutions and valuable insights from leading authorities across the profession.

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 event that was scheduled in New York on December 13-14, 2021 and to replace the in-person event with an online webinar series that will occur over three days December 13-15, 2021.


A series of online webinars, currently being planned by the Institute Chairs, will take place December 13-15, 2021. The webinar series will provide participants with up-to-date analyses of state tax developments including the year’s most important current issues, 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. PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES WITH DETAILS ON TOPICS, TIMES AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION.

The Institute on State and Local 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.

December 13-15, 2021
