For more than 14 years, the NYU School of Professional Studies Tax Controversy Forum has brought together government representatives and expert private practitioners to share their perspectives on a variety of topics involving federal tax audits, appeals, and litigation. The forum covers a wide range of controversy work, from procedural seminars to substantive programs, international issues, ethical problems, current enforcement initiatives, sensitive audits, and civil and criminal tax penalties.
After two years of holding this premiere event virtually, New York is back and so are we. We’ll be gathering in-person at the Westin New York Grand Central. Located just steps from Grand Central Station, the hotel is nestled in the heart of Manhattan near the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and numerous shops and restaurants surrounding Grand Central. We invite you to come and experience New York City again, all while renewing friendships, networking, and hearing from some of the brightest legal minds in tax. For those who cannot attend in person, we will have the option of livestreaming.
Registration and full agenda will be available soon. Sign up for updates to get the registration link and full agenda when it’s available.
