Bloomberg BNA to Host Post-Election Tax Policy & Practice Summit

Experts Will Analyze Implications of the Election Results for Corporate Tax Policy

ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On the heels of the 2012 presidential, congressional, and state elections, Bloomberg BNA will host a tax policy summit on November 13-14 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C. The Bloomberg BNA Tax Policy & Practice Summit will focus on the implications of the election results for strategic corporate tax issues; the potential for tax reform; and the economic, legislative, regulatory, and judicial trends that are shaping the future. The event is designed to aid senior corporate tax professionals and their advisors in making tactical decisions.


Keynote speakers include Thomas A. Barthold, Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff; and William Wilkins, Chief Counsel, Internal Revenue Service. Other preeminent professionals and thought leaders from business and government will be in attendance.

Summit topics have been selected for their impact on corporations in light of the elections and the potential for major tax reform. Not only will the American people consider whether to re-elect President Obama, they will elect a third of the Senate and all of the House of Representatives. At the state level, there are 11 gubernatorial and 43 legislative elections. What will these elections mean for corporate tax reform? State and local business tax policy? IRS enforcement in the financial instruments area? The patchwork of conflicting state laws and administrative pronouncements that currently govern cloud computing transactions?

"The outcome of many of these elections could have a significant impact on business taxpayers—especially those that operate in multiple jurisdictions," said Steven Roll, a state tax analyst with Bloomberg BNA.

At the Bloomberg BNA Tax Policy & Practice Summit, leading public officials and private practitioners, as well as Bloomberg BNA's top tax authors and correspondents, will analyze these and many other timely questions.

Summit sessions will include:

  • U.S. Information Reporting and Withholding Requirements
  • Partnerships and Pass-Through Entities
  • IRS Enforcement Tools
  • Dispute Resolution Options: What Impact Will Tax Reform Have?
  • Cloud Computing and Other Sales Tax Issues
  • Reporter's Roundtable
  • Planning For & Shaping Corporate Tax Reform
