Why You Should Attend
As the world’s economies grow increasingly integrated through trade, acquisitions, joint ventures, and even international governmental agreements, U.S. international tax laws impact a greater percentage of businesses and transactions. These international tax rules affect not only large U.S. and non-U.S. based multinationals, but also increasingly affect mid-sized and smaller organizations and investors, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and other commercial activity. A working knowledge of these international tax rules is of paramount importance to a wide variety of tax professionals.
At this year’s Chicago program, we will assemble some of the world’s leading experts and senior government officials to discuss the complex rules of U.S. international taxation, in light of the TCJA, including the voluminous regulations that have been issued by the Treasury and IRS implementing the new rules, and OECD developments. We will also explore the significant changes to the international tax rules proposed by the Biden Administration. We will focus upon both operational and transactional implications of these rules and describe their application to both U.S. and non-U.S. based organizations and investors.
