Tax Policy Conference to Tackle Tough Issues

Did you ever think you'd live to see the day when accounting was front page news - daily?

With Wall Street and government focused on corporate accounting scandals, the press reporting on the latest disclosures, elected officials pushing for new controlling legislation - and along with that, declining state revenues and billions lost each year to a growing tax gap - tax policy has become a hot state and national topic.

Tax experts, corporate executives, and government officials from around the country will meet in Sacramento this November to debate the hottest issues facing tax professionals today, according to the Franchise Tax Board (FTB).

“This is a critical time for tax professionals to know what's happening in California taxation,” said State Controller and Chair of the Franchise Tax Board Kathleen Connell. “The California Tax Policy Conference provides an excellent opportunity for tax professionals to stay current with today's issues confronting tax administrators.”

During the three-day conference, held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, November 13-15, tax experts will discuss a variety of issues ranging from tax cheating to corporate litigation. The conference consists of two general sessions, plus eight different workshop sessions.
