WASHINGTON — Senior law professors from The George Washington University Law School will join with officials from the Treasury Department , the IRS, a representative from the OECD and representatives of the tax authorities of foreign governments to discuss significant tax compliance and treaty issues at the 21st Annual Institute on Current Issues in International Taxation.
The two-day program will be held on Dec. 8 and 9, 2008, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel located at 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.
Those interested in attending can find out more about the topics, speakers and registration from the GWU Law School.
The program is designed primarily for corporate tax executives responsible for international tax matters, tax counsels of domestic and foreign multinational corporations, lawyers working in the international tax area and accounting firm partners and managers working in the international tax area.
The conference has been arranged to provide opportunities for lively exchanges between members on the panels who represent government, academia and the private sector and to offer question and answer periods with members of the audience. It will include the perennially popular ‘ask the IRS’ session where IRS officials respond to questions from the audience.
