2018 42nd Annual Tax Law Conference



 

2018 is shaping up to be one of the most dynamic years for the tax profession in recent memory.  With emerging administrative priorities and the prospect of real tax reform on the horizon, the tax landscape prepares for a tectonic shift.  Come connect with policymakers and fellow practitioners to explore what the potential impact of these changes means for you and your clients.  Join the Federal Bar Association Section on Taxation at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington for the 42nd Annual Tax Law Conference.  Examine these important tax developments and developing policy issues in sessions featuring notable speakers from the IRS, Treasury Department, Department of Justice, White House, and Congress.  This one-day event is capped by an evening presentation of the prestigious Kenneth H. Liles Award for Distinguished Service to an eminent tax practitioner in recognition of his or her commitment and dedication to upholding the highest standards of the practice. Ethics, CLE, and CPE credit will be available.
