Event Description

The George Washington University Annual Institute on Current Issues in International Taxation will not be held this December. IFA USA has undertaken to work with the IRS and Treasury to present an alternative virtual event with many of the same speakers to provide participants with important updates in international tax.

The IFA USA International Tax Conference – "The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – A Three-Year Review" will be held
December 16, 17, and 18, with a series of substantive sessions for a few hours each day on international tax topics, featuring prominent speakers from private practice and government.

• Corporate tax executives responsible for international tax matters
• Law firm partners and associates working in the international tax area
• Accounting firm partners and managers working in the international tax area
